Catherine Ryan Howard is a master thriller writer and Run Time is up there with the best, as the movie set of nightmares she so evocatively conjures starts to turn on its lead actress.

-- "Publishers Weekly (starred review)"

This is the best book you will read in 2022 and you can quote me on that...One of the most riveting books I've read in a long time. Adele is a wonderful main character, both dynamic and unreliable. The story is exactly what I've come to expect from Catherine Ryan Howard, and that is well-written, full of twists, and symbolic of the world around us...This story is powerful, creepy, and extremely meta in the best way. I haven't read a book that truly creeped me out like this in a long time. The setting was dark and slimy and had all the right elements to make me keep the lights on while reading. I could never quite put my finger on what was really going on, and I think that's what makes for an exceptional story. I recommend this book to anyone and everyone as one of the biggest successes of the year.

-- "Mystery & Suspense"

An entertaining read. The twists and turns of Adele's sordid tale are interesting, and the narrative is well written. If you're just dipping your toe into horror, Run Time is a good place to start.
