Overview

"Run at Destruction" explores the true-life love triangle between three teachers/runners in small-town America, and the eventual death of the wife in her own bathtub. Drews unfolds the drama brilliantly, right through to the sentencing of the husband to a life in prison and even an afterword from the mistress apologizing years later. Sent to prison, the husband and mistress still can't let go and she becomes a prison bride.

Readers are left to decide for themselves if it was murder, suicide, or manslaughter by neglect. "Run at Destruction" is lust, murder, and obsession delivered with the beat of a runner's heart, as the theme of running is woven throughout. The book grabs at a large cross-section of readers because everyone can relate to the desire and often disaster that comes with affairs.

This is true-crime court drama and author Drews exposes the characters to such a depth that readers will feel like they are reading a novel, only, this really happened.

Editorial Reviews

New York Times Best Selling True Crime Author of The Stranger Beside Me, Small Sacrifices and Mortal Danger - Ann Rule
"Run at Destruction is a tragic-yet fascinating-true story... It happened in a wholesome community of runners and educators, perhaps the last group you would expect to be involved... in secret affairs, deception, and infidelity. Readers will find themselves walking along with Drews as she describes an enviable friendship, her grief when it ended suddenly and the layers she peeled away to find the truth. Wonderfully written. A must for true crime readers."
Publishers Weekly
Runner and longtime Green Bay, Wis. resident Drews revisits the mid-1980s death of her close friend and fellow runner, popular high school teacher Pam Bulik... Like Melanie Thernstrom's The Dead Girl, about the life and tragic death of her best friend, this title also relies on the strong bond between author and victim for emotional weight; passages about their shared moments, and Drews's feelings of emptiness in the decades since, are remarkable.

Run at Destruction captures the family-like culture of a running group, showing how its members support one another especially in times of crisis.
Race Director, Cellcom Green Bay Marathon - Sean Ryan
“Run At Destruction is written with the beat of a runner's heart: steady intensity racing toward an inevitable finish. Drews is the John Grisham of the running world, pulling readers into a unique subculture where the drama unfolds.”
correspondent for Track & Field News - Sean Hartnett
“Run at Destruction is a riveting and compelling read! Drews takes us on a jog back to the 1980's running boom, layering intriguing portrayals of a running community's friendship within a baffling murder mystery.”
