Review & Wrap-Up:

Exhilarating! Every time I thought the chase was over, Driscoll had another trick up her sleeve! 

I love a good bad-ass chick being the main character, and Eva Driscoll is just that. She knows the ins-and-outs of the hired hit-men’s world, because she used to be one. She’s smart and always one step ahead of the “bad” guy. I am excited to see where her story ends up next!

Run and Hide is an action-packed thrill ride that will have conspiracy theorist jumping from their seats. Lovers of Dan Brown or Stieg Larsson’s Millennium series will love this thrilling new series by Alan McDermott!


From one bookaholic to another, I hope I’ve helped you find your next fix.

Dani's Score out of 5: 📚📚📚📚

Love this book? Check out The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (Millennium #1) by Stieg Larsson


A spellbinding amalgam of murder mystery, family saga, love story and financial intrigue.

A Sensational #1 Bestseller – Now a Major Motion Picture In Theaters March 2010.

It’s about the disappearance forty years ago of Harriet Vanger, a young scion of one of the wealthiest families in Sweden . . . and about her octogenarian uncle, determined to know the truth about what he believes was her murder.

It’s about Mikael Blomkvist, a crusading journalist recently at the wrong end of a libel case, hired to get to the bottom of Harriet’s disappearance . . . and about Lisbeth Salander, a twenty-four-year-old pierced and tattooed genius hacker possessed of the hard-earned wisdom of someone twice her age—and a terrifying capacity for ruthlessness to go with it—who assists Blomkvist with the investigation. This unlikely team discovers a vein of nearly unfathomable iniquity running through the Vanger family, astonishing corruption in the highest echelons of Swedish industrialism—and an unexpected connection between themselves.

It’s a contagiously exciting, stunningly intelligent novel about society at its most hidden, and about the intimate lives of a brilliantly realized cast of characters, all of them forced to face the darker aspects of their world and of their own lives.

Pair it with: Masi Campofiorin Rosso del Veronese


This is the original Supervenetian created by Masi in 1964 and internationally recognised as a wine of “stupendous body and complexity”, the prototype for a new category of wines from the Veneto inspired by the Amarone production method (Burton Anderson). Its own production method was described by Hugh Johnson as “an ingenious technique”. This blend of Corvina, Rondinella, Molinara grapes creates this full bodied, smooth and velvety wine, but it's approachable and versatile in its food pairings. Combines simplicity with style, strength and majesty. 

Pair with pasta with rich meat- or mushroom-based sauces, grilled or roasted red meats, game and mature cheeses.
