DARED TO RUN -  A KATE ANDERSON MYSTERY-THRILLER by J.J. CLARKE

“Fast-paced engaging story of a young heroine facing what seemed like insurmountable odds. Quirky plot twists and comical scenes kept me on the edge of my seat.” – Paula Tucker, Author, Surviving: A Kent State Memoir

 “Keeps the reader in enjoyable suspense.” – Riley Moon

Book club members rate it 5 stars.

In an elite FBI academy, Kate Anderson, a new college grad, is stalked and terrorized by a corrupt deputy sheriff.  Unable to stop the harassment because of his powerful connections and threats to her family, Kate is forced to try desperate measures to protect herself and her grandparents. As her terror increases, she discovers an underground network of women helping victims escape abusive men.

Meet Dirty Sally, Sister Anne, and a trucker nicknamed The Black Angel—women who orchestrate Kate’s escape. When the deputy is shot, Kate is accused of the crime,  and goes on the run rather than risk an unjust conviction.

Take a high-tension ride with Kate through Missouri and Georgia as she avoids capture, relying on friends, the network, and grit to stay one step ahead of the law. With a bounty on her head, will Kate evade the marshals? Can she keep up the disguise? Will she ever see her family again?

Dared to Run is a thriller not to be missed!
