A Time To Run is a crime novel written with the voice of authenticity by a serving police officer. Set in south east Queensland, it details the abduction of Sammi Willis, a police officer who thought she could look after herself. Despite this, she falls into the hands of a dangerous psychopath, who takes her to isolated bushland to hunt her like an animal. Detective Senior Constable Janine Postlewaite doesn’t know Sammi personally, but cops stick together and she follows up the investigation with tenacity and persistence. While Sammi is hunted by a killer, Janine pieces together the clues that will lead her to Sammi. It becomes a race against time as Sammi’s colleagues try to unravel the evidence before the killer’s sadistic game comes to a fatal end. This is a fast-paced story, using genuine and plausible police procedures.
