My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Runaway sort of follows a similar theme to the third book in May’s Lewis Trilogy, with an intertwined plot which follows threads both in the present day and the 1960s, with the group of friends in question, members of a band. In this one a disgraced actor who was known to have murdered someone at a house party in 1960s Kensington, returns from exile but is promptly murdered. One of the group of friends, now back in their native Glasgow, hears of this and persuades his friends to runaway again to London, for one last dying wish.
It was okay, a bit preachy in parts (May’s books sometimes are) and some of the dialogue with the 17 year old friends seemed a bit unrealistic, as they sat round discussing architecture but it was a reasonably entertaining read.
