Alex can steal time. The most he can take at the moment is fifteen seconds, but his grandmother took almost three minutes once - although he never saw it. But when he and his father are separated while fleeing their home country, Alex finds himself completely alone on the shores of Britain, with only his extraordinary gift to keep him safe. . .
SIMON FOX lives in Sussex with his extraordinarily patient wife and two teenage children who never tidy their rooms but would take on the world for each other. Running out of Time is his first novel after twenty years trapped in the dungeon of accountancy. He is determined to never go back.
