Yossi is defiant. His father is overbearing. His mother is protective. It s a volatile mixture, and it explodes in a violent and frightening disappearance, and finally in a chase from a Jerusalem yeshivah to the Swiss Alps - a chase that ends in horrific violence and loving reconciliation.

What happened to Yossi? Why did Ilan get a haircut? What is the meaning of the magical eye? WHat fateful secret is concealed in the gibberish of the hidden list, and why are people willing to kill to protect it? What came between Yossi and Zevulun? Can Reb Yaakov and Elazar bring them together again?

But this book is more than a riveting, tantalizing mystery. Woven into the story of Yossi s flight and the frantic effort to find him, The Runaway explores what the Torah requires of parents and children, and how they should relate to one another. Where is the fine line between harshness and hatred? Between independence and license? Between pride and arrogance? Between discipline and cruelty?

For Zevulun to learn the answers to these questions took an emotional visit with his saintly rosh yeshivah of many years ago. And to find Yossi, Reb Yaakov closed his Gemara and became a detective. His zeal to save a Jewish life turned him into a daredevil and a sleuth; it allowed him no rest, especially when he became convinced that a dangerous cult was trying to infiltrate the sacred walls of the yeshivah.
