Overview

Blood Runner by James Riordan

By the author of Rebel Cargo and The Sniper



Samuel’s parents and sister die in a bloody massacre. His brothers retaliate by joining the anti-Apartheid movement, with guns and terrorism as their weapons. But Sam decides to fight prejudice in his own way – as a runner. Against all odds – from a poor township childhood to the Bantu homelands, from work in a gold mine to competing for gold – he focuses his mind, body and heart on the long, hard race to freedom . . .



Praise for The Sniper:



“My teen son and I read this



within two days and we were fighting each other for it.”
