Fleeing her dark past, Tasya Flynn breaks into a mansion to steal food and unknowingly prevents its owner, wealthy recluse and former cat burglar Ian Macpherson from committing suicide. Moved by this young woman's barely concealed torment, Ian takes her in. He soon realizes she's the perfect weapon he can use to claim the revenge he's sought for over thirty years against his former double-crossing partner-in-crime, who left him to rot in jail.

Tasya agrees out of obligation but quickly becomes Ian's enthusiastic pupil in the seductive art of stealing. She also begins to fall for this charismatic older man and while Ian reciprocates her feelings, the disparity in their ages makes him reluctant to take things any further. Their plan is perfect and the heist seems to be going well until Tasya's past catches up with her most unexpectedly and things rapidly go awry.

Catherine Mulvany combines the zest of the evergreen cat burglar caper with paranormal elements to create a story that will appeal to a range of readers. Tasya's history of abuse and Ian's criminal past add anguish and unconventionality while the revenge and stalking motives make it all the more deadly. Just as readers get the feeling that they know what's going to happen, the author sends the plot into an unpredictable spin.

Run No More has it all romance, passion, drama, action, pathos and lots and lots of danger - making a story that's just too good to miss!
