"The book is beautifully written, funny and poignant, and very different from any I have previously read by the versatile Peter May."--Literary Review
"A real emotional edge to those regrets"--The Scotsman
"For those who remember the Sixties, but aren't sure if they've taken their meds today, this tale of two nostalgia trips is for them; for others, it might seem akin to taking a road trip through unfamiliar terrain with their Uncle Pete, if it's kept in mind that Uncle Pete is a crackerjack storyteller."--Library Journal
"Stretching the parameters of the genre, [Runaway] is as much a disquisition on friendship and the fragility of dreams as it is a thriller."--Financial Times
"A well-told tale ... The two time streams are woven together skilfully and the book ends with an intensely moving glimmer of renewed hope."--The Spectator
"May is going from strength to strength ... A wonderful exhibition of just how good May can be."--The Daily Mail

"A terrific read suffused with nostalgia and the burden of long suppressed guilt."--The Sunday Times
"An outstanding novel that speaks directly to the little voice within each of us: the voice that in our quieter moments sometimes asks "What if?""--Undiscovered Scotland
"An excellent addition to [May's] multifarious back catalogue... My overarching reaction to this book is one of warmth. I loved the poignancy"--Raven Crime Reads
"The scents of regret and squandered promise suffuse this well-crafted crime novel, about a group of senior Glaswegians attempting to make amends for past sins."--Publishers Weekly
