The buyers find us. Establish their bona fides.Then, and only then, we run.Burdon Lane is a businessman living out the American Dream in a shiny suburb of Washington, D.C. His business card lists him as Executive VP of UniArms, Inc., a legitimate arms dealer that's a front for a gunrunning empire. His girlfriend thinks he's a salesman. His best friend thinks he's a role model. His boss thinks he's a good soldier.  This weekend's run should be business as usual -- guns for money, money for guns -- moving the product north on the Iron Highway from Dirty City to Manhattan. But this weekend is going to teach Burdon something he doesn't yet know about who he is . . . and isn't. When the meet in Manhattan turns into a five-alarm fire and an all-out war on the tenth floor of a New York hotel, there is only one way out: an uneasy alliance with a hard case named Jinx and the street gang known as the U Street Crew. And once the heat is on, with a cadre of killers and every police officer and Federal agent on the eastern seaboard on their tail, Burdon gets the chilling sensation that, one way or another, this so-called milk run may be his last.  This is the story of the last run, the run where no one -- criminal, cop, or civilian -- is who or what they seem.  Douglas E. Winter's debut novel blasts into the dark heart of America's culture of guns and violence with breathtaking velocity. Run is a streamlined tour de force of full-throttle action and high-tech weaponry, a brilliantly controlled ride through America's most brutal terrain, with a surprising moral message -- fantastically harrowing, relentlessly cinematic, impossible to look away from.

Brandon Lane seems to be doing alright for himself. He's got a townhouse in D.C. and a sorta-girlfriend. To all outward appearances he's just another businessman trying to make it. But Lane's line of work is a little different, he's an arms dealer, and enforcer that makes sure the shipment gets through and that his group gets paid. When he is assigned to take part in a "milk run" taking guns and ammo from D.C. to NYC he is hesitant. Members of a D.C. street gang are brought into the mix to facilitate the deal with an NYC street gang. Predictably it all goes to pot in a hail of gunfire and the murder of a much loved MLK-like church pacifist. Lane can trust no one now with half of his crew dead and the other half looking to kill him. He's on the run with one of the D.C. gang members as they roar through New Jersey in to D.C. for the ultimate shootout. This was really a wild ride full of action, mayhem and racial invective. Lane and his gangland partner are reluctant allies but must put their differences aside to make sense of the madness. The action certainly didn't stop throughout becoming almost cartoonish at time. But the ingredients are there, a double-cross, man on the run not knowing who they can trust, and finally the ultimate bloodletting showdown. This book reminded me a lot of the film Reservoir Dogs, both with its over the top violence and the twist at the very end. It's a noir thriller alright, and you viddy an awful lot of the ultra-violence and carnage. But if you can stomach it, it is definitely worth the ride

This is my favorite book. Period. I like the ingenuity of the gun runners is getting things across state lines and around small security hurdles. It has a little bit of "I've never thought about that" to it as well. This isn't really a spoiler, but the UPS idea was ingenious. He's right, you can get away with just about anything as long as you look like you have a mission and you belong.

The book -does- have some discrepancies though, like gratuitous (read: unnecessary) use of the "n" word and a complete lack of quotation marks. I, personally, liked the lack of quotation marks because I've randomly wondered if writers ever get tired of putting them around everyone's speech and how they always get it right. Despite that it's one of -the- most raw and well-written book, as far as human interaction and pure ingenuity, that I have ever read. I warn you that you probably won't get this book the first time that you read it. It gets better with age and understanding, though. I would recommend this book, but not to just anyone. You need an open mind, and interest in guns, and a touch of paranoia to get through this one happily.

Douglas Winter updates and deconstructs - nearly vivisects - the chiaroscuro of the classic noir style. The protagonist is gunrunner along Interstate 95. When a big shipment to a NYC gang goes haywire, an adrenaline surge propels the book - through the unraveling of scheme after scheme - to the necropolis of its cataclysmic conclusion. For good measure, a baroque quantity of minutia concerning firearms is peppered throughout. Suspenseful, stark, and startling, 'Run' includes the key hallmarks of the noir genre: taut, rapid-fire prose and an overarching existential nihilism. Like Highsmith's 'The Talented Mr. Ripley,' Goodis's 'Down There,' and Thompson's 'The Grifters,' Winter's neo-noir deserves to be put on screen, but get a copy of the book first - copies are disappearing faster than a pack of smokes at an AA meeting.

This is an amazing and breathtaking book! Absolutely wonderful! It quickly hits you with an intensity that just forces you to not flinch and to continue reading.
Burdon Lane is a gun runner; he smuggles the weapons to those who can't legally get them. And while on a run that is too good and too easy to be true,.... The nice thing for us readers though is that the [stuff] turns into a complicated plan with twists and double twists to match. And like John Woo's "Hard Boiled" where the final battle takes about a fourth of the film, the final fourth of the book is the big payoff that we wanted. I don't know what else to say except that if you like intense, hardcore violence, read this book!

A friend recommended this book in Elementary school believe it or not, and ever since I've been a fan... It was like watching an R-rated film without your mom knowing

Ever read a book the last 200 pages of which is a climax? This is one. It's not a high speed roller coaster- more like a 2 mile long, 40 degree angle water slide of a book. Winter's previous non-fiction works and anthologies are all excellent, so it came as no surprise that this was an outstanding book. What is a surprise is the style and pace of the book, which are, as pointed out by the previous reviewers, breathtaking. There are comparisons to be made to Connelly, Crais and others, but I assure you you've never read a book like this. Long may it Run.

Cheap thrills. Lots of guns. Fun time.
Wow!

Turn to page one . . . . . then just hang on tight. It's smart, fast and bloody.

It's underlying statement is also very topical right now.

Great book.
