"Run at Destruction" explores the true-life love triangle between three teachers/runners in small-town America, and the eventual death of the wife in her own bathtub. Drews unfolds the drama brilliantly, right through to the sentencing of the husband to a life in prison and even an afterword from the mistress apologizing years later. Sent to prison, the husband and mistress still can't let go and she becomes a prison bride.
Readers are left to decide for themselves if it was murder, suicide, or manslaughter by neglect. "Run at Destruction" is lust, murder, and obsession delivered with the beat of a runner's heart, as the theme of running is woven throughout. The book grabs at a large cross-section of readers because everyone can relate to the desire and often disaster that comes with affairs.
This is true-crime court drama and author Drews exposes the characters to such a depth that readers will feel like they are reading a novel, only, this really happened.
