    This fast-paced heart pounding story centered in a corrupt futuristic London had me in suspense for hours! I couldn't put it down, I was up until 3am and then couldn't sleep after that! Rachel and Charlie's characters were extremely well written and the story itself was layered and gripping with gritty detail. The descriptions made me feel as if I was along for the ride, it is that good!

    I literally can't put the book down.The Running Game by LE Fitzpatrick is such an awesome combination of so many things, all of them brilliantly intertwined that it makes an absolutely awesome read.The greatest thing about it is what it wakes in my perverted mind.So basically, when I read a book I picture the events, the setting, the characters, everything.While reading The Running Game, I also do that, but they are sort of manga images.Not the funny crazy, face making ones, but the dark ones, like Samurai X, Helsing,Darker then Black, Death note.I think the most interesting aspect of it it's the mix of elements from Tarantino, Shakespeare and the above named manga, with a touch of British humor, one of my favorite thing in the world (I am a huge Wodehouse fan.)

    L.E. Fitzpatrick sets a blazing course of adventure, murder and survival all set in a dark realistic world crumbling under it own weight of evil corruption. Helplessly grabbed by the scruff of the neck her readers are forced into a world that leaves them questioning if they themselves could survive in such a place, and secretly hoping they never will. You feel the slippery streets under your feet and smell the rancid stench of the sewers. You are immersed in an environment so well presented you feel the slimy grime and the bone chilling wind on your skin. Closing your eyes you can see the faces of the characters in this tale and when opened you expect them to be in front of you. Each with their own demons and pasts; they stand on their own as completely believable individuals. I was captured by this book and appreciated the authors expressive writing style. Her stories pacing, unique unforeseeable plot and her character development was stellar. Set just outside of London in a realistic future, I felt transported there as a witness to the plights of these characters as they transverse through the many ploys and back stabbing plots thrown in their path. With double crosses and internal moral dilemmas you're left guessing where it will lead them or if they will even survive at all. I can't wait to read more books by this author! I did receive this book in exchange for an honest review.

    S’aven, the dystopian city surrounding the closed off London, is quite an interesting world to explore. The poverty, the thriving crime, the every day struggle for the most basic of things, the hopelessness, everything is palpable. While set somewhere in the future, it does not seem so far away, a future where everything becomes a few shades darker, more terrifying.Rachel Aaron, a young Reacher and a doctor, struggles to maintain the facade of a normal life, hiding her super human abilities. She shields herself from the prying eyes of those looking for Reachers. Yet one of the crime bosses of the city has her sights set on her, and that is how the Smith brothers, John and Charlie (also a Reacher), and Roxy, enter her life.If there were teams, I am team John all the way! Dark, brooding, a perfect killing machine, dedicated to his brother, loyal to a fault. But while I loved him the most, this quartet is perfect. The four of them make for a lovely interaction to watch. Rachel who’s just struggling to come to terms with her new life, Charlie with his demons and nightmares of the past, John who bears his own scars, and Roxy, smooth and untrustworthy through and through, they have an interesting dynamic that caught my attention even more than the mystery and thrill of the book.I’d tell you more, but I hate spoiling parts of the story for new readers. Just grab your copy and start reading! I personally can’t wait for the next book in the Reachers series.

    The Running Game has a little bit of all my favourite things. its set in England (I love to be able to relate to places, but this is a drastically different place from where we live now!) Rachel is doctor, with a complicated life, having a cop as a boyfriend and being a doctor in a rough area whilst hiding the fact she is a reacher. Her life gets more complicated when she meets the dangerous (and loveable) brothers, John and Charlie, and get tangled up with the S'aven gangsters.This book managed to keep my interest throughout, there are plenty of exciting bits, and the story line isn't really lacking in anything. Although I do wish there was a bit more information on how the world changed so much, but there are hints about it.Overall it's a really good read, I'd recommend it.

    Okay, so...I actually was not expecting to fall in love with this book when I began reading it at first. I thought it was just going to be just another story of potential murder...well that will definitely teach me to read an excerpt in its entirety. Because this is not just another story. This is a phenomenal paranormal tale of extravagant proportions.Rachel Aaron was taught from a young age by her father to run. To never stay in one place too long. To always keep your opponent guessing as to your position, and stay one step ahead. However, she has become complacent. She originally came to S'aven to find her lost sister, but has stayed longer than intended. So when two brothers warn her that she is in danger, and that they were hired to find her by a man who most assuredly does not have good intentions toward her, she instantly packs up and runs like she was taught. But...alas, it cannot be that easy. Otherwise, where is the fun in that?Charlie and his brother are getting back in the game of finding people. It's what pays the bills, so why not? But when Charlie finds that their recent assignment has a connection to him, he does not have it in him to betray her location to the people that want her. He abides by the Reacher code inside of him, because that is the very power, the very connection, they share. So, he decides to help her. But when you work for the big man in town, it seems that things are not always on your side.Danger comes in many forms in this book. Whether it be a leader searching for a killer's identity, willing to do whatever it takes to get it, a wife who is willing to sacrifice anyone for the man she loves, or a man who will play whichever side gets him the revenge he so desires.This book was amazing. I unfortunately could not read it all in one sitting, because of the reality of having a job (WHY!!! Haha), but I never stopped thinking about it when I was away. I was always wondering what was going to happen next, and that is the most important thing in any story. To keep the readers enthralled enough to wonder what will happen if they keep reading. What will happen to the very characters they both love and hate. Will a hated character become a loved one? Will a loved one suddenly turn on you? This is a wonderful book, and I will be searching for more of Fitzpatrick's stories in the future.

    The synopsis of this book is enough to excite any reader; an ailing dystopian society, one hunted girl, two guys and a paranormal twist.L E Fitzpatrick's pace is energetic and unrelenting; these are characters with a purpose and although they all survive in the direst of circumstance they are determined to succeed. Yet, on no level did I feel connected to them, despite the fact that they have all experienced loss in one form or another. Out of all the characters I did really like Roxy; he is honest enough to be self-serving, yet perversely loves in his own subjective way, whilst also being the only one who has any sort of a sense of humor!The paranormal element is pivotal to the story, yet L E Fitzpatrick introduces the idea of characters possessing Reacher abilities quietly and without spectacle. I found these talents intriguing and am very exciting to see how the author develops these in the later installments of the Reacher series.I did enjoy this book, although I admit that I may have to re-read it to clear my confusion about certain areas of the plot.One to add to a TBR pile!

    BRILLIANT DYSTOPIAN CRIME NOVEL The Running Game is a brilliant and well written Dystopian novel with a psychic twist. I loved all the characters, particularly Rachel, the brothers John and Charlie, and Roxy. The story was gripping, the dialogue crisp, the characters convincing, and I laughed quite a few times too. I loved Fitzpatrick's writing style. Highly recommend.

    I won this in a giveaway a few months back (eep, sorry for the delay). It's an interesting introduction to Rachel's world. S'aven is a dystopic city outside of London in some not-so-distant future where a war stretches out endlessly, the police are as corrupt if not more so than the mobsters that rule S'aven. Rachel has it even harder. She's a Reacher and I don't want to say too much about what they are as part of the novel's pacing centers on slowly peeling away the layers and revealing a Reacher's power. Leave it at they can be powerful. They are sought after to be used by the unscrupulous and they have been hunted down and killed.Two brothers, John and Charlie, have been hired by the head mobster, Pinkie, to locate a young woman, a doctor, who turns out to be Rachel, but when Charlie realizes that Rachel is a Reacher he knows he just can't turn her over to Pinkie. Charlie has his reasons but that's another thing I don't want to go into too much so not to spoil things. Charlie however has been badly injured in the past and is not up to snuff. He relies on John who is a bit on the sociopathic side. well, to be honest there aren't too many upstanding citizens in this story outside of Rachel and even she's willing to do whatever it takes to survive, but who can blame her.At Charlie's insistence, John agrees to help get Rachel out of town but she's not so sure she's ready to run just yet. With the dubious help of Charlie's friend Roxy, who has his own agenda, they have to be sure to keep Rachel around but that won't be easy with Donnie Bloom back in town, the bomber who killed Pinkie's brother.It's a good introduction into this world. I enjoyed it.

    Wow what a book!!! Amazingly written draws you in from the start and doesn’t let you go! I loved this story and all the characters. Rachel is leaving her shift from the hospital when she feels like someone is following her. What she doesn't know is that her secret is fixing to be revealed and her life will be on the run again. Pinky wants her for his own self gain and Charlie and John want to save her and make her family because Charlie and Rachel are the same. Will they be able to keep Rachel out of Pinky’s reach or will they lose her? I can’t wait for the next book I give this a 5 fang review.

    Dr. Rachel Aaron (Reacher, 24) worked at St. Mary's hospital, she had just worked 15 hrs. in the ER. She lived in S'aven a very crime ridden city. A male someone was stalking her she could sense it. A lure bomb exploded & lucky she was close by to help those injured. Charlie (David Jones, Reacher) & his brother John Smith were hired kidnappers. John had saved Rachel when the bomb went off. The duo met with her & told her they were paid $30 thousand but did not know what for. Pinky Morris (45) was the new boss after his brother Frank died. Lulu Roxton killed him. James Roxton is her husband. Donnie Boom had designated the bomb orders from Frank. Father Darcy was in charge of the mob. Riva is Pinky’s wife she owns the Cage. Fat Joe was the bookkeeper. Laboratories had designed PPL born with powers, they were called Reachers, psychics, plague-bringers. Dr. Rachel Aaron was a Reacher. Charlie Smith (David Jones) was in ER getting a prescription refilled & warned Dr. Rachel Aaron (Reacher) she needed to get out of town.Jackie Walters & Mickey Walters, not related were sent out to whack Donnie Boom. Who’s on whose side? What is going to happen to the good/evil Dr. Rachel Aaron? What becomes of the other unique characters (Pinky Morris, Smith Brothers, John, Charlie, Roxy…)? Will the Reacher’s survive? Paranormal, scifi, mysterious, thriller, on the edge book. No grammar or out of story line sequence. It was hard to follow sometimes but it all seemed to come together. Filled with murder, suspense & drama never a dull moment. Lots of twists/turns. The possibility of a movie. I think I will end up given it 5 stars. Thank you for the free book Tony Parsons MSW

    A glimpse into the future where society has broken down and things are run more by the gangsters than the cops. A great adventure as Rachel the reacher is being hunted down by the Smith Brother, paid for by Pinky Morris. Only when the guys find out she is a reacher, they don't want to hand her over. Several stories linked together in the book, with the Smith Brothers being the main characters along with Rachel.Pinky Morris runs his empire and he wants to know who killed his brothers, so much so he would offer to pay anybody anything to find this out. That's not to say he would pay up when they deliver. Then there is Roxy, just whose side is he on? When you figure it out, you might be wrong, but then again, maybe you were right in the first place. Lots of betrayal and mistrust as people come and go and mainly all out for what they can get.A good read with lots of adventure, suspense and twists along the way.

    4 fangsReviewer for paranormal romance and authors that rock.Rachel finished work and found that she was being followed yet again, but this time he saves her instead of just leaving her go home. After meeting John the man who saved her and his brother Charlie, her life is changed forever as they tell her they know what she is and they know that people are after her.This is book one of the reacher series. It can be read as a standalone but you will probably find you will want to read the next book.I found it a bit slow to start as you are getting to know the characters and the story, but suddenly it all clicks and then its full storm ahead. You will begin to love the goodies and really dislike the baddies. The are a number of twists to the book.I found it a bit like Divergent in the way of the characters trying to hide what they are. I would recommend this book to those who like a bit of violence and an intriguing story. I can't wait to read book two.

    A real page-turner, “The Running Game” drew me in with inventive and sympathetic characters and a suspenseful, well-considered and intricate plot. In the seamy shanty town that sprung up outside London after the economic collapse, a woman is on the run, living in the shadows, feared for her power to reach into people’s minds. She’s being hunted. By whom, she isn’t sure. “Why?” is isn’t exactly clear to her either, but that sets up conditions for fraught-filled dash for freedom with plenty of twists and turns. I enjoyed it thoroughly.

    DNF at 60% I feel very stupid right now and very angry at the same time. Because all my recent, almost all, were bad. And I think I get it. I get it! It's like all these books have good covers and intriguing synopsises just because the inside is ugly, is boring, you've read it hundreds of times and way better in other novels. And I think I'm going crazy, because when I see dozens of 5 stars and 4 stars and I tried very hard to read half of it.... my mind just explodes. How? How is this possible?! Is it me or these people have such taste that I can't deal with it.This was supposed to be dystopia, sf, thriller etc. It was a boring mess, with more dialogue than a reality tv show, with a plot that had such big holes as a cheese, with characters so transparent and so annoying.... the writing style was the sum of all. I don't want to seem like I don't appreciate the author and the effort that was put into this but I can't lie because of that either. It wasn't amazing, it wasn't even predictible... it was awful and nothing, I can't pick anything that I liked or I can say it was good. Maybe the cover and the blurb. I could've remained just with those and I'd have been lots happier.I'm tired of books that look and sound good and when you read them you just want to rip your head off. I'm tired of giving bad rating and writing bad reviews. I'm tired of ruining my reading because of that. And yeah I know you can tell me, then why did you read it? Because I thought it's going to be good, it seemed good. *siiiiiiigh* I'm done. This was not a running game. I will run if this book starts chasing me.

    This book has it all... friendship, courage, intrigue, suspense, murder, betrayal and more, and I loved it.I was hooked by the end of the opening chapter and the unique plot kept me captivated right up to the last page.L E Fitzpatrick's vivid descriptions depict S'aven as a dreary place with a dark and corrupt society, - not a great place to live.The main characters, both good and bad, are well-rounded and believable with their own traits and behaviours, and I found myself rooting for Rachel, John and Charlie.The ending was well done, no cliffhanger, but plenty of room for a sequel, and I'll be waiting for it.

    Let me start by sying, this isn't the sort of book I normally read. I was actually kinda dreading reading it and I even drug my feet a little. Then when I did strart reading, it built up slower than I'm use to, but boy when it took off I could hardly put it down.So much action and so many bad guys. Even the good guys are a little bad. I saw clearly every character. I don't know how you kept all these people straight and gave such life to them all. I Got a clear picture of who Rachel is and where she came from, but those Smith brothers and Roxy have a bit of mystery left to their stories and you can be sure you've gained another fan in me, who'll be eagerly waiting for the next book.

    The Smith brothers always deliver, but when their current job turns out to be a Reacher, the tables are about to turn.I received a free copy in return for an honest review.This series has been on my reading list ever since I read The Lost Shepherd short story in the Awethology collection, and I wish I'd picked this up earlier!This was awesome, I can't remember the last time I enjoyed a new series so much.There's a perfect blend of genres, with the story being set in a dystopian future, where society has crumbled and blames Reachers (those with powers). Now, the outskirts of London - an area called S'aven is run by gangsters and dirty cops, giving the story a solid Crime flare.The story keeps you guessing throughout, as the hidden agendas of all the characters come together and make a constantly shifting threat. There are some decent surprises, and revelations I didn't see coming.There is also a subtle, dry humour, woven into the narrative. This story doesn't take itself too seriously, and I absolutely loved it.The characters are... good.I think my favourite was Roxy - he reminded me of Captain Jack - you never quite know which side he's on, even at the very end. He manages to piss everyone off, and there's no one he hasn't double-crossed; but you still believe he could be a good guy.I also really liked Rachel. The guys might think they are there to protect her, but she's perfectly capable of looking after herself when the need arises. And when it doesn't, she just quietly plugs along with life.Charlie and John are OK. I like them, and they feel well-rounded, but it feels like Fitzpatrick has purposefully held information back on them. I'm looking forward to how they turn out in the rest of the series, especially as Charlie is hinted at being as powerful as Rachel; and John has that awesome silent-ninja thing going.There is also no romance, which I found to be a bonus - it's always refreshing when a good crime/paranormal/dystopian doesn't dissolve into fluffy feelings. There's some groundwork done, so if Fitzpatrick decided to build on it in future books, it would all be natural and good.The only thing I was disappointed about, was "Charlie's grand plan". Throughout the book, he has been heralded as the-man-with-the-plan. The genius. The worshipper of intricate details. The reason the Smith brothers always pull off jobs.The grand plan near the end wasn't exactly Ocean's Eleven. It wasn't any more complex than "grab-and-go".I mean, don't get me wrong, what happened afterwards, when they had to improvise was pretty awesome. I just couldn't help but be a little disappointed in what Charlie came up with. I hope he gets a bit more creative in the following books.So, highly recommend, and I'm already reading the sequel, Border Lines!

    The book offers a grim dystopia but far less running than one would imagine from the title.The book establishes the overall dreary setting of a dystopia fairly quickly. Rachel’s work at the hospital and commuting home from it is dirty and grimy. Society is clearly barely functioning, a fact that is smoothly and clearly established. It takes a bit more time to learn more about the over-arching world, and the fact that Rachel is a “Reacher,” a person with some form of telepathic powers. For some reason, the government is seeking to eradicate all Reachers, whereas the church, which is illegal, views them as angels sent from above, metaphorically speaking. It’s an interesting world but our view into it is quite narrow, so there’s a lot of questions left unanswered.Rachel is a good, strong character who is well-rounded in spite of knowing little of her backstory. The brothers, on the other hand, are kind of annoying and two-dimensional. They and the general crime lords/corrupt cops feel much more cookie cutter than Rachel does. In a way, they drag her down. It’s hard to root for her when she chooses to cast in lots with this bunch.Similarly, the plot focuses in on what feels more like a standard crime thriller plot, rather than a dystopian one. It’s a good crime plot, but it’s not a dystopian one. The title implies a much more dystopian style book, such as Rachel using her powers to outwit the government and start a new colony or something like that. Instead it feels a bit more like an urban fantasy style crime plot that just so happens to be surrounded by society breaking down, somewhere out there. I think marketing it as a running game, rather than as the crime mystery plot it really is hinders the book a bit. Readers who would like an urban fantasy style futuristic crime novel might miss it, because it sounds so dystopian. The title and summary give the vibe of a Logan’s Run or Maze Runner style book, when that’s not what it is. What it is is a perfectly good futuristic crime novel, but that’s not what it sounds like.Overall, this is a quick-moving tale of futuristic crime with a dash of telepathic powers and an easily imagined setting. Fans of near future, fantasy, and crime will enjoy seeing the three intertwine. Those looking for more of a scifi or dystopian focus should look elsewhere.Check out my full review.Note: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

    The Running Game by LE Fitzpatrick is a brilliant dystopian thriller gritty, dark and chillingly written with panache and an eye for character and detail. The opening chapter blew me away with its furious action and menacing tone and the rest of the novel was equally awesome.Rachel knows all about the running game - stay mobile, fast, never dawdle, check exits, shadows, escape routes all may save her life or take it away in a society without law.In a split second, Rachel lets her guard down and they find her. She must run now, leave the city and try her luck beyond its boundary, but with no money and a dark secret to hide her chances of survival are slim.Then she meets two brothers with a dangerous past and secrets of their own. Can they help her turn the game around?This is the first installment of the Reacher series. Set in a grim and not too distant future, this urban thriller will keep you hooked until the last page.This reader loved the first novel and will certainly read the next and the next.Very highly recommended.

    I received a copy of this book as a beta reader, and from there I fell in love with this unique story. Beautifully written Urban Fantasy, a new twist on a not-so-distant future. The Running Game starts as a action packed story, that evolves with a great plot line and characters who pack a punch. The story follows Rachel, a kick-ass, no punches pulled heroine, with a very special talent which she must keep hidden. We then join two brothers, one of which has been horrifically scarred in a manner which most would never recover from. With a splash of horror in a pivotal scene that will remain forever ingrained within my imagination, this is a novel I highly reccomend!!!

    I wasn't certain I was going to enjoy this novel since its setting was so depressing. I'm happy to say that it didn't take long for me to change my mind, because the action grabbed me on page one and wouldn't let go. The dark setting and gritty characters only add color to the plot. At first I wasn't certain who I was supposed to be cheering for, but then I realized the Smith brothers weren't the bad guys after all. I was all - go Smith brothers after that.The Running Game is rich in plot and intrigue. It will make you think long after you read the end.

    The Running Game by L.E. Fitzpatrick is a Wow. A dystopian future controlled by ganglords and the wealthy sets the stage for kidnap and murder. The story is fast-paced, with characters who are perfectly fitting for the setting. Reachers, people with special "powers" are both desired and outcasts in this society. I enjoy a good story. This one was a romp, fast and full of surprises. You have to read it.

    I don't usually read books involving organised crime. Just don't like the genre in general. This time, however, the organised crime, was more of a plot point than the main story.I really enjoyed Rachel and Charlie's relationship most, but add in John and Roxy and you have a winning cast of anti-heroes. Lots of twists and turns.I will definitely be checking out book. 2 in the Reachers series.

    Read more of my reviews at http://amberleannbookreviews.blogspot...My Rating-3.5/5-A free copy was received in exchange for an honest review.I found this a pretty good book. I liked the style of it. It is like 3rd point of view but it follows different people around. So like you start out following Rachel for a chapter then the next chapter its one of the Smith brothers. It works out really well in this book because it's pretty short less then 200 pages plus it takes place in only a matter of a few days. Getting to know everyone's sides of the story helps you not only understand why everything is happening but it also makes the story feel less short. Also it's like a puzzle trying to connect everyone's individual stories to see the whole picture.I liked the whole idea and what happened. All the events that lead together. I liked pretty much all the characters. Even the small ones seemed to make a huge difference in the book, and I liked that.Honestly not much to say other then I enjoyed the book. I also hope to see another one and see if there is any where else this story can go.
