Marathon Man Summary


Marathon Man by William Goldman

'Babe hobbled to his feet. His ankle hurt like hell and his face had scraped along the pavement, but he knew the sound of a beaten runner when he heard it. I'm a marathon man, he thought, a real one, and you better not mess with me. Then Jesus, Babe thought suddenly - they're coming for me in the car.' Tom 'Babe' Levy is a runner in every sense: racing tirelessly toward his goals of athletic and academic excellence - and endlessly away from the spectre of his famous father's scandal-driven suicide. But an unexpected visit from his beloved older brother sets in motion a chain of events that plunges Babe into a vortex of treachery and murder. Stumbling into the violent world of couriers and assassins, espionage and torture, the boy who dreamed of winning races suddenly becomes a man forced to race for his life ...and for the answer to the fateful question, 'Is it safe?'
