#FREE 1/31-2/1 'Running Stupid' by Morris Fenris & Ezra White

Running Stupid is an intense, slick thriller with a liberal dose of comedy and an injection of suspense. It is a roller coaster of emotions, taking the reader on a high octane journey as the hapless, apathetic protagonist encounters serial killers, sociopaths, liars and fraudsters before finding himself face to face with the ultimate test of fortitude.

Matthew Jester is a lucky man. He has cruised through life on a tide of fortune, succeeding in every aspect of his existence. Now he wants to test his good fortune, to push it to the extreme, and his luck is about to run out -- his world is about to unravel. He becomes the chief suspect in a high profile murder case and discovers that he is public enemy number one. The country hates him, they want him dead, and no matter how far he runs, no matter which direction he takes, he keeps finding himself in the clutches of the darkest and most depraved elements of society. He thinks his luck has finally run out, that his life has hit rock bottom, but what he doesn’t know is that things are a lot worse than they seem.

"What an awesome story!!! Suspenseful from start to finish. Read this book. Best plot &ending ever!!! You will love it!!!"

"Suspense, excitement, adrenaline, and billionaires' conspiracy. What's not to like? I started reading this morning and didn't stop, this book grabbed me, scared me, and shocked me. I'm sitting here stunned. The ending hit me like a sledgehammer. One of the best psycho thrillers I've ever read. I'm not sure I'll have pleasant dreams tonight..."

"In the superbly crafted `Running Stupid,' Matthew Jester has to be the luckiest man on earth - until the day that his luck runs out. He finds himself framed for murder, and vilified by the public. And, someone wants him dead...lots of someones!

A thrilling web of murder, suspense, and one man's fight for survival that had me reading it in one sitting. It was an excellent, fast-paced, edge-of-your-seat read! A perfect mixture of thriller and suspense.

A lifelong reader of this genre, I have to admit that the book's ending totally surprised me. I WAS NOT EXPECTING THAT!

I give the plot an A+ , the suspenseful storyline is beautifully built-out, and the dialogue awesome. A 9.5 in my book!

I sure hope this is not the last from these two authors!"
"This is one wild, unpredictable ride! The trials of Jester, our protagonist, are detailed with unflinching description so this it a gripping pageturner with ever escalating stakes. It's written in a skillful, direct way so it's easy to put yourself in the hero's point of view and try to imagine what you would do if you ended up caught helpless in a dangerous situation fending off assassin after assassin.

The plot is a crazy game billionaire sociopathy at it's worst, where people hunt and bet on other humans in a high-stakes safari-meets-sports betting-meets-Truman Show inventive drama. This sets up brutal fight scene after scene where our hero has to figure out how to survive cage match style. The authors deliver. It's like an escalating video game where we hope to finally meet the boss level, but know it's going to cost all long the way.

I loved the deadpan humor,including when he outsmarts attackers or like when some of Jester quizzes some not-bright attackers about how they would divide an even-summed bounty 3 ways. The biggest appeal is the cunning twists and turns and the tense actions. Give this book a go if you like intense action scenes, and then buckle up for the ride."
