Sneak Peek: Run For Your Life Trilogy by Pamela Beason with Giveaway

Race With Danger
Run for Your Life Trilogy Book 1
by Pamela Beason
Genre: YA Suspense, Action, Adventure

Champion runner Tanzania Grey, 17, has to win the Verde Island Endurance Race's million-dollar prize to save the life of her friend Bailey. The treacherous five-day race traverses a remote volcanic island that's home to beasts that slither, fly, swim, and slink through the jungle. But the wildlife turns out to be the least of Tana's problems when she draws the name of Sebastian Callendro as her partner. Sebastian's personal life has put him in the national spotlight, and his nosy followers are the kind Tana can't afford. Her name isn't really Tanzania, and everything else in her biography is invented, too. She’s been running for three years─from the men who murdered her parents. If her cover is blown, she could be next.

**Only .99 cents!!**

Race to Truth
Run For Your Life Trilogy Book 2

Champion endurance racer Tanzania Grey, now 18, is haunted by disturbing email messages from the mysterious P.A. Patterson, who seems to suspect her real identity as Amelia Robinson. Four years earlier, she was the only one to escape when the Robinson family was professionally “eradicated” in Bellingham, Washington.
When Tana receives an invitation to compete in an extreme version of the Ski to Sea relay in her home town, she decides to use the race as a cover to gather information about who killed her mother and father, and what became of her then-nine-year-old brother.
Tana soon discovers clues that hint of something terribly wrong in the company her mother helped to create, Quarrel Tayson Laboratories. Worse, her sleuthing attracts the attention of a very frightening man in Bellingham, who knew both her parents. It now seems more a matter of “when” than “if” she will be the next to be killed. Can she turn the tables and reveal who was behind the death of her parents before she becomes their next victim?

Race For Justice
Run For Your Life Trilogy Book 3

When champion runner Tanzania “Tana” Grey receives a mysterious invitation to the Extreme Africa Endurance Challenge, she fears it might be a trap. The multi-day race is in Zimbabwe, the violence-prone homeland of her brilliant biochemist mother, who was murdered along with Tana’s father. The killers, never apprehended, seem to suspect that Tanzania Grey is actually Amelia Robinson, the girl who escaped their deadly grasp. But when Tana sees a Mom Lookalike in the promotional video for the race, she can’t say no. She doesn’t know whether to be alarmed or delighted when her former race partner Bash Callendro, the “love child” of the U.S. President, arranges to run with her. Tana’s determined to find any remaining family in Africa, and expose the secrets that led to her parents’ deaths. As the clues pile up, Tana realizes that her quest for the truth could destroy not only her and Bash, but will also endanger the lives of everyone she cares about back home.


The email message includes a link to a website. When I click and go
there, I am bombarded with advertising about wonderful
accommodations for racers and media and fans—exotic game lodges
and luxury hotels. There’s even a video. I click the play button and
watch a trio of lean dark-skinned runners lope along an exotic
course. Zebras graze in the distance. As the runners pass a
checkpoint, the camera zooms in on the smiles of enthusiastic fans
clustered together behind a barrier tape. Among them is a woman
photographer with curly chestnut hair pulled up into a ponytail.
With her eye pressed to a camera, she turns with the crowd, tracking
the racers. The crowd then disperses, leaving the photographer, who
lowers her camera and looks directly at whoever is filming this vid.
It feels like she’s staring into my eyes.
My heart stops. My whole body throbs with a sudden longing to throw
myself into that woman’s arms. I play the vid over and over again,
stopping it every few frames to stare at her straight nose, her curly
brown hair. When she looks up, she’s smiling, just a little with her
lips closed, like my mother did when she had a secret.
Could it be? I found my brother last year, after four years of
believing he was most likely murdered along with my mom and dad.
I saw my parents’ bodies lying in a pool of blood on our living room
floor. Could it be possible that my mother didn’t die that night? Could
she really be alive?
The woman turns away, following the crowd, and I’m not sure. Her
hair is longer and several shades lighter than my mother’s. She’s
wearing a khaki uniform that implies she’s working there.
I know it’s too much to hope for. Maybe I no longer remember what
Mom looked like. The only picture I have is small and grainy, a photo
of her with her colleagues at work.
Videos can be altered. If my enemies suspect I’m Amelia Robinson,
then they know I have a personal connection to Africa. This
P.A. Patterson could be luring me to Zimbabwe, where I’ll be
eaten by a lion or ambushed by armed thugs, and die an easily
explained death. This might be a setup by the black-clad ninja
invaders I escaped from four years ago.
I know this might be a trap designed especially for me.

But I also know that my next race will be in Zimbabwe.
