    Jay Stringer s take on the Midlands region of the UK is fantastic and his treatment of characters those who have professional or familial relationships with the protagonist could be used as textbook chapters on how to write This one is one of the rare books I ve run across in the past few years that carries as much weight for writers as it does for readers and that s saying something Because RUNAWAY TOWN is a remarkable story about cha...
