The Night Run Summary

The Night Run by Bali Rai

Amritsar, India, 1919. A city on the verge of meltdown, as tensions between the local people and the British colonial rulers explode. 12-year-old Arjan Singh learns that his father has been falsely charged with serious crimes and faces hanging. But there has been a terrible massacre in the city, as British troops fired on unarmed Indians, and the city is under curfew. Anger and fear have left the population seething and danger lurks around every corner. Arjan sets out on a perilous mission to save his father, in the face of armed troops, martial curfew, and vicious local bandits. Can he escape and get to his father before it's too late?

The Night Run Reviews

...when the books are written, as this series is, with strong credible characters and authentic settings, children are really transported to the period and place. The Flashbacks series are relatively short reads but gripping so keen readers will devour them and be looking forward to more. -- Sarah Brew * www.parentsintouch.co.uk *
A powerful and evocative title in the re-launched 'Flashbacks' series...the introduction of difficult themes and characters...ensures there is much in this short novel that will engage the more mature young reader. It comes highly recommended. -- Steve Hird * School Librarian magazine *
