Also by Iris Johansen. He put his foot on the brake and slowed the jeep down. He swerved around a curve in the road, braced himself, and then jumped into a mud-and-sand-filled ditch at the side of the road.

Also by Iris Johansen. 1. El Tariq, Morocco. Get the bastard! He’s trapped. The hell he was, Kilmer thought savagely as he gunned the jeep up the hill. Ignore it. He rolled over and dashed into the brush, watching the jeep roll driverless away from him and then veer toward the edge of the road. With any luck they’d think that shot had struck him and not try to analyze why the jeep appeared uncontrolled. Now wait for the truck pursuing him.

Only 1 left in stock (more on the way). A single mom and gifted horse handler, Grace Archer goes on the lam with her equally exceptional eight-year-old daughter, Frankie, after a Middle Eastern magnate named Marvot kills the owner of the Alabama horse farm where they have been hiding under the watchful eye of Grace's former employer, the CIA. Johansen (Firestorm, et. blends action, suspense and family values as Frankie's father, ex-CIA commando Jake Kilmer, comes back into Grace's life to protect her and the child he has never known.

I keep forgetting to stay away from Iris Johansen when it isn’t an Eve Duncan mystery. The plot and story line are quite good. Our gal,Grace, starts out as a wonderfully strong, incredible Why is it that in so many books, they won’t drop the F bomb and they won’t even say shit, but when it comes to Jesus’s name, they treat it as if it were nothing? I find it demeaning that this woman, who is such an expert warrior, is kept out of the loop so she won’t worry her pretty little head.

In the second book of Iris Johansen's heart-stopping new Eve Duncan trilogy, the stakes get higher.

#1 New York Times bestselling author Iris Johansen is back with an electrifying new thriller that pits a mother and daughter against a relentless killer who takes no prisoners, accepts no surrender, and leaves his intended victims with no choice but one: to run for their lives.…Wherever you stop, he’ll be waiting.…The picture was a warning: they'd found her. For eight years Grace Archer hoped this day wouldn't come–and knew in her heart that it would. She'd taken her daughter, Frankie, to a rural Alabama horse farm that might just as well have been at the end of the earth. But the man out to kill them would gladly follow them that far. And now, it seems, he had.A woman with a highly classified past, Grace had never run from anything in her life. But as a mother, she'd do anything to keep eight-year-old Frankie safe. Now that safe world has been shattered, and a ferocious hunter has been unleashed. Suddenly the agency that owed Grace its gratitiude and protection has abandoned her and only one ally remains: a man even more dangerous than her worst enemy.She hasn't set eyes on Jake Kilmer since the catastrophic events of eight years ago. Now he's asking Grace to trust him with the one thing more precious to her than life itself. But with a ruthless criminal kingpin determined to make her pay for the past, her and her daughter's lives on the line, and time running out, she just may have to put her faith in a man who she believes has already betrayed her once.
I'm a long time fan of Iris Johansen's books, but I found On The Run very disappointing. The character and relationship development was weak when compared to her many other excellent books. The plot had potential, but tended to drag on. It didn't help that I found obvious holes in the plot.

I wouldn't recommend this book to anyone knowledgeable about horses. There were glaring errors in details specific to horses that I found very distracting. I usually find horse-related errors in fiction, but some of these errors were fundamental to the plot so key story elements became too unrealistic for the plot to be successful for me ... even as fiction.

With better research and attention to detail regarding the horses, the plot that focused so much on horses could have been adjusted to work well. Non-horsemen wouldn't be aware of the errors and perhaps they would enjoy this book. Many other Johansen books have been keepers for me to re-read, but not this book.
Johansen never fails.
I am a great fan of Iris Johansen. I love her books - the thrillers, the mysteries and the romance novels. On the Run is another homer for Ms. Johansen. I loved the characters and mourned the deaths of those who didn't make it to the end. Ms. Johansen has a knack for bringing her characters to life and the characters in this book became important to me. I cared about what happened to them and was happy for their triumphs and frightened for them when they were in danger. The book, as are most of hers, is a fast read because you can't put it down. Please, Ms. Johansen, don't stop writing!
Totally and completely loved this book. Frankie is such a beautiful loved and understood child the idea of the music the love of animals. And the love between her and everyone she meets warms your heart. The extend that her mother goes through to protect her as well as the horses is warming. To put all before herself shows true family love. Kilmer loving and caring for them shows shows slot too. Totally enjoyable book
great listen
The book is OK, but the quality of cassettes was awful. There was a terrible echo on each one of the 6 cassettes. It was all I could do to listen.
Can people talk to horses? Can horses be taught to locate special things? Can love out last evil? Read this book to find out.
awesome
