Book Review: No Place To Run by Mark Edwards

“Will he ever find her?”

Set to be released on 21st June, No Place To Run by Mark Edwards follows Aidan who, after years of false leads and dead ends, has almost given up hope of finding his fifteen-year-old sister, who vanished into thin air on a trip to Seattle two years ago. But then a woman sees a girl running for her life across a forest clearing in Northern California. She is convinced the girl is the missing Scarlett. But could it really be her?


Thank you to NetGalley for a free advance copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

With a gripping opening scene, No Place To Run is likely to have you hooked from the very beginning. We have a missing girl, an eerie town full of sinister characters, and a host of eco-protesters on the brink of action.

It was all very tense and exciting, and I was eager to uncover what was going on. Unfortunately, everything felt very chaotic and unbelievable for me after that, and I really struggled to get excited by it.

I’ve read two of Mark Edwards’ books before and they were both psychological thrillers so I was expecting No Place To Run to be dark and twisty. Instead, it’s very crime-heavy with an almost dystopian edge to it.

Some readers are sure to love the direction that this thriller takes, but I just didn’t enjoy it. There were too many characters (and none of them were particularly interesting), the revelations were underwhelming, and it just lacked any thrills overall for me.
