"A WINNER." --PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

"FIENDISHLY CLEVER." --THE TIMES

In this heart-stopping installment of Peter May's award-winning China Thrillers, the Beijing Olympics are the setting for fierce competition, national pride--and murder.

THE SUFFERER

A prodigious Chinese swimmer kills himself on the eve of the Beijing Olympics. Days later, a champion weightlifter suffers a fatal heart attack prior to competition.

THE LISTENER

Detective Li Yan senses a conspiracy surrounding the fatalities, and finds a female athlete willing to talk. But she will only trust one person: Li's fiancée, Margaret Campbell.

THE RUNNER

When Campbell's contact herself vanishes, the gun is fired on a race against time. And Li must now outrun--and outwit--an enemy bent on pushing him beyond endurance.

Peter May has written several standalone novels and three series: the award-winning China Thrillers, featuring Beijing detective Li Yan and American forensic pathologist Margaret Campbell; the critically acclaimed Enzo Files, featuring Scottish forensic scientist Enzo Macleod, set in France; and the Lewis Trilogy (The Black House, The Lewis Man, and The Chessmen), all three volumes of which are internationally bestselling novels.

One of Scotland's most prolific television dramatists, May garnered more than 1,000 credits over a decade and a half spent as scriptwriter and editor on prime-time British television. Before quitting TV to concentrate on writing novels, he was the creator of three major series, two of which were the highest rated in Scotland. May lives and writes in France.

"A fluid plot, rounded characters, and deft handling of two very different cultures make this a winner."
Publishers Weekly

"Each installment of the China Thrillers series provides rewarding views of the Beijing landscape and insights into cross-cultural relationships."
Kirkus Reviews

"An enjoyable read with a graphic portrayal of Beijing in winter."
Sunday Telegraph

"May makes his characters so fascinating and the culture of China's capital city so intriguing."
Marilyn's Mystery Reads

"If you love a good mystery set in a foreign country, then The Runner is for you!"
Mysterious Reviews

"A tense and atmospheric thriller with a heart-stopping ending."
Tangled Web

"An absorbing and well-informed account of Beijing life today and the inside workings of the Chinese police . . . Far from a dim sum, this fare turns out quite piquant."
Russell James, Crime Time Magazine

"The most exciting thriller I've read in a very long time . . . A fiendishly clever plot!"
Alanna Knight, The Times
