This is a fast, good read with a plot that is a bit out of the ordinary for your basic thriller. It knits together Somali pirates, corporate spies, Big Pharma, narcotics, khat, love and lust, and it does so in a well-paced story that is not entirely predictable. Running Dark is an excellent read for an airplane trip, the beach or a leisurely weekend at home.

This novel is chockful of dangerous situations almost from beginning to end. One would think, then, that it would have been extremely easy to stay interested in the story and to not want to put the book down. For me, this was NOT the case. Especially from about the halfway point until shortly before the end, I had to force myself to pick up the book from my nightstand every night. It sat in my car for a week or two, untouched. Trust me, if it was THAT exciting a book, I would have taken the time …

One would expect that when ultramarathoner Emma Caldridge is blown off her feet by a car bomb near the halfway point of South Africa's Comrades race, she would call it a day. Emma, feeling the ill effects of the run even before the bomb blast, is too stunned by the explosion to protest when a stranger injects her with a mysterious drug via the EpiPen in his hand. All she knows for sure is that the drug immediately has her back on her feet, her race injuries are quickly healing, and she cannot wait …

Emma Caldridge is competing in an ultramarathon event in Africa. As she passes mile marker thirty-five, a roadside bomb detonates, nearly killing her. As she lies by the road, a man approaches her and injects her with something. Too dazed to react, she is aware of the injection but unable to discern the man. As she regains her faculties, she notices that her once swollen feet are returning to normal. She also seems to have a burst of energy, in fact she finishes the race with faster split times …
