Will Lee ran from a life of Southern wealth and privilege to spend a peaceful summer on the coast of Ireland. But there is no peace in this beautiful, troubled land. Restless and dissatisfied, Will dreams of shipbuilding and sailing on crystal-blue waters. But an explosion of senseless violence is dragging the young American drifter into a lethal game of terror and revenge. For the fires of hatred rage unchecked in this place of lush, rolling hills and deadly secrets. Now Will Lee must run for his life from a bloody past that is not his own-and he will find no sanctuary on the rolling waves of the Irish Sea.

Review quote

Praise for Run Before the Wind "A riveting, powerful, hypnotic tale."--The Washington Post "[Woods has] the magic touch of a born storyteller...There's no let-up in the breakneck action until the story's final, violent climax."--Columbus Dispatch "Quietly drawn and satisfyingly tense...Murder, betrayal, and a heavy sense of doom are rendered almost lyrically."--Booklist "The dialogue is crisp and the pace is crisper. A good read for the adventure seeker."--Library Journal More Praise for Stuart Woods

"Stuart Woods is a no-nonsense, slam-bang storyteller."--Chicago Tribune "A world-class mystery writer...I try to put Woods's books down and I can't."--Houston Chronicle "Mr. Woods, like his characters, has an appealing way of making things nice and clear."--The New York Times

"Woods certainly knows how to keep the pages turning."--Booklist "Since 1981, readers have not been able to get their fill of Stuart Woods' New York Times bestselling novels of suspense."--Orlando Sentinel
