The Running Game by L. E. Fitzpatrick: Character Interviews & Giveaway

The Running Game 

by L. E. Fitzpatrick

Her father called it the running game. Count the exits, calculate the routes. Always be ready to run because they'll always be coming for you. Whatever happens, they'll always be coming for you.

Rachel had let her guard down and they had found her. She could run now, leave the city and try her luck beyond the borders, but with no money and a dark secret to hide her chances of survival are slim.

But then she meets two brothers with a dangerous past and secrets of their own. Can they help her turn the game around?

This is the first installment of the Reacher series. Set in a grim and not too distant future, this urban thriller will keep you hooked until the last page.

Character Interviews:

I would like to thanks the characters of L. E. Fitzpatrick's The Running Game for stopping by today for an interview.  Welcome Everyone!

What is your name? Do you have a nickname?

They call me Charlie Smith - the Man with the Plan. At least that's what they used to call me.

How old are you?

I'm thirty-three, although according to my brother I look fifty-three. If I'm honest I feel even older than that.

Where were you born? Where have you lived since then? Where do you currently call home?

Home? I don't have a home anymore. I did for a little while, in London, it was a real house, with my family, we even had a white picket fence. But that went up in flames...[sighs] Anyway, before that it was the Institute, white walls, locked cell, just me and my brother. I think that's why we're always on the move, settling reminds us too much of that place.

Who are the people you are closest to?

My brother, John. He's had my back through the dark times. And I know it looks like he's the one looking after me all the time, but he's not as indestructible as he makes out, I take care of him too. I've always taken care of him. Him and Rachel. I've not known Rachel for long, but she's a Reacher like me, it makes us automatically close.

What or who is the greatest love of your life?

Sorry, give me a minute... Okay, the love of my life. Sarah, my wife. She was everything, kind, beautiful, loving. I met her in church, she was forging identity passes to get Reachers out of the city and I was dropping off funds for the cause. We met up that night and that was it. She changed everything. Then she died and everything changed.


What is your name? Do you have a nickname?

Rachel Aaron. Once someone at the hospital called me Doctor Sunshine, but he was doped out of his mind at the time so I don't suppose that counts.

How old are you?

I'm twenty-four, one of the youngest doctors at St Mary's - which is more a testament to how terrible the ER is there rather than how good I am.

Where were you born? Where have you lived since then? Where do you currently call home?

I was born in Red Forest at about the time things were starting to go downhill. I was six when the civil war was in full swing. Dad tried to evacuate us and got caught in the cross fire, but me and my sister made it all the way across the country to S'aven. Until we were separated and I got shipped off to a convent. God it felt like a lifetime living with those nuns, but the violence spread and eventually I ended up in S'aven, living in a one roomed flat with a cop of all people. And then of course I met the Smith brothers.

What is your most treasured possession?

I have never had a lot. Nuns are pious and doctors are poor. But I have a backpack, packed and ready to go should I need to run. It's got food, clean underwear and a bar of soap. It's all I need - my life line.

What is your biggest fear?

I'm a Reacher, my biggest fear is the same as every other one of my kind - the Institute.


What is your name? Do you have a nickname?

John Smith.

How old are you?

Old enough.

What is in your refrigerator right now? On your bedroom floor? On your nightstand? In your garbage can?


What is your most treasured possession?

My switch blade.

What do you most value in your friends?


Which living person do you most despise?

James Roxton.

What is your greatest regret?

Only shooting James Roxton in the shoulder.


What is your name? Do you have a nickname?

Well my mother call's me James when I have been especially bad, the police call me Mr Roxton when I'm in trouble and everyone in between just call me Roxy.

How old are you?

How old do you think I am darling?

What is in your refrigerator right now? On your bedroom floor? On your nightstand? In your garbage can?

Last week's pizza - to all of the above. At least I think it was last week.

Who is your funniest friend?

Well I have to say that would be John Smith. You've met him, he's a laugh a minute.

Which living person do you most admire?

Oh that's an easy one, Johnny-boy Smith again. Him or Jesus, or maybe a one legged pole dancer I used to know called Peggy. I'm kidding - she was called Candy.

What is your favorite journey?

This one of course, that's why I'm on it.
