The "run" of the title is Senator Will Lee's last-ditch run for the presidency of the United States, as political circumstances force his hand and as his every move is being tracked by a militia assassin. The story is loaded with thrills. But the plot is filled with clichés, two-dimensional characters, and farfetched coincidences that impede serious suspension of disbelief. The script suffers from uneven abridgment, resulting in large gaps in Woods's original story line, which run the listener aground. Ken Howard delivers the story with a masculine touch, even tempo, and smooth pace. The result is a highbrow adventure novel that will satisfy as long as the listener doesn't ask too many questions.
