Summary

A twisted murder, a tangle of lies...Now Rylee must run for her life.

What if you discovered that everything you thought you knew about yourself was a lie? Rylee is fifteen years old, and has spent her life being shuttled from city to city by her parents. She assumes the reasons are normal - work and opportunities. But the truth couldn't be any more shocking. One day Rylee comes home from school to find the most horrifying thing imaginable - her father dead, with a knife through his heart, and a key clutched in his hand. Her mother's purse is on the counter, but she appears to be long gone. A message in blood is written on the floor...RUN.

With her brother in tow, Rylee begins a dark journey, one that will uncover horrific and chilling crimes and lead her to an unexpected and gruesome discovery about her real father and what - or who - is behind his insatiable desire to kill. By the journey's end Rylee's childhood is a long way behind her...The Girl on the Run is the first title in the new Vengeance series, following Rylee as she begins to piece together the story of her life and to avenge unpunished crimes - starting with her own. From acclaimed #1 New York Times bestselling author Gregg Olsen comes an edgy thriller akin to "Dexter" for a younger generation, with a resourceful and memorable female protagonist unlike any other in contemporary young adult fiction.
