The new high-octane thriller from New York Times bestselling author Patrick Lee. Prepare to be hooked from page one…
Ex--Special Forces Sam Dryden lives quietly in a small coastal California town. But his peaceful existence is shattered when he receives a phone call from an old friend in trouble—and now there’s no turning back.
“An adrenaline-fueled [series]…recalls the best of Tom Clancy and Robin Cook.”—Publishers Weekly
FBI agent Marnie Calvert is called to a horrifying crime in the Mojave Desert. When the investigation leads Calvert to Dryden, the two find themselves caught up in a generations-long conspiracy that’s finally coming to fruition. Now they must face down a phantom network whose technology can affect events before they even happen…and is bound to result in the death of millions. To defeat it, Dryden will need to do more than think fast: He must find a way to outsmart a ruthless enemy that can seize on his mistakes before he even makes them. And time is running out…

“Patrick Lee’s thriller featuring a loner hero compares to Lee Child’s Jack Reacher series but with the added kick of technology. Readers will wait with bated breath for the next Dryden adventure.”—Library Journal

This edition of the book is the deluxe, tall rack mass market paperback.

Praise For Signal: A Sam Dryden Novel

“A superbly engrossing novel.” —USA Today on Runner

“Lee's precise detailing of technology and medical science recalls the best of Tom Clancy and Robin Cook, while his believable hero adds a Jack Reacher adrenalin-fueled plot that begs for a sequel.” —Publishers Weekly (starred) on Runner

“Patrick Lee is a huge talent and Runner is his best book yet--breathless, involving, smart, and completely convincing.” —Lee Child on Runner

“NOW we're talking page-turner... The last time I remember reading through a book so fast was The Da Vinci Code and the final Harry Potter novel. Runner is a frantic, mind-bending thriller deserving of your time and attention.” —Seattle Post-Intelligencer on Runner

“Lee amps up the tension in this nonstop, action-packed thriller… Readers who pick up Lee's latest should be prepared to miss their favorite television shows, since they won't put this book down long enough to watch them.” —Kirkus Reviews on Runner

“Tension mounts right from the start in this nonstop action-packed narrative… a high-tech thriller that's hard to put down.” —Library Journal (starred) on Runner

Runner takes off like a rocket and sustains its velocity until the very last page. Patrick Lee remains in charge throughout the ride, creating strong characters, credible dialogue, and one heck of a plot.” —Alafair Burke on Runner
