Bad Faces

By Charles Hall

A man is the sole witness to a fatal accident. Thugs warn him against testifying; but nobody warned the thugs…

Jack Crane retired after a hectic career in the British Army. This resourceful, unassuming mid-forties bachelor had limited romantic experiences – his only love lay in the past. He was enjoying the peace and quiet of country life, until one fateful day he was the sole witness to a tragic accident. He ignores the threats of some bad faces, and picks out the young man responsible.

The man’s father orders the thugs to carry out their threats. However, an innocent man is killed in the process.

The police cannot act without hard evidence, but Crane will get it come what may. Whilst striving to obtain that evidence, he re-discovers his lost love, but is she to be trusted? Crane becomes involved with a number of bad faces that try to put him out of action. Eventually, a professional hit-man is put on Crane’s tail, but the perpetrator finds that Crane’s resolve has no bounds, that lead them both to the USA.

Born in London, Charles Hall lives in rural Essex with his wife Jacqueline. It was Jacqueline whose deep involvement set him on the write track when it came to writing Megaton Mornings ; a novel about his experiences with twenty-five nuclear tests whilst serving in the RAF. Now semi-retired from business life, and apart from playing boogie-woogie piano Рone of his numbers featured in the soundtrack of BBC TV s Love Soup РCharles has found more time to write the kind of story he likes to read; fast moving action thrillers. The idea for this story was spawned after an acquaintance witnessed a misdemeanour and became the subject of intimidation by a handful of thugs warning him against testifying; but some people are not for threatening!
