• A real find

    Stephen King
  • Extraordinary

    Simon Mayo, Radio 2 Book Club
  • Ridiculously gripping straight from the start

    Jenny Colgan
  • Will thrill and delight ... a terrifically well-observed, haunting and occasionally harrowing read

  • This is an uplifting, exciting and often humorous yarn about camaraderie, endurance and redemption. Throughout, Walker nicely evokes the agony and exhilaration of distance running.

    The Times
  • ... what sets this novel apart is Walker's extraordinary emotional articulacy

    The Sun
  • A page-turning thriller with a pace as relentless as the characters' feet hitting the pavement. A deft look into the mind of a man who needs the near-destruction of the world to show him what truly matters

    Laura Lam, author of False Hearts
  • Brilliant ... superb to the end

    Lucy Mangan
  • A really fun, engaging, exciting, and compassionate take on a familiar scenario: the apocalypse ... Highly recommended
