Hit and Run

By Sam Smith

Meet George Hawkins. 

A country detective, his life is a daily routine of small-time embezzlement and sleazy divorce cases. 

But his life is about to swerve out of control. 

He is watching a husband’s house, gathering evidence of adultery.

But he witnesses a horrific hit and run incident instead. 

Should Hawkins report it to the police and jeopardise his case?

Or should he use his investigative skills to find out who this man really is?

Before Hawkins can decide, his house has been robbed and his girlfriend has vanished. 

Has yet another woman walked out on him? 

Or is it something more sinister?

Could her disappearance be linked to the hit and run he witnessed? 

And if so is he merely a pawn in someone else’s deadly game?

The local police are convinced he is guilty of murder. To escape their clutches, George is forced into two investigations that will change his life forever…one into a network of ruthless, high-tech industrial spies and another into his own past.

The stakes have got a lot higher. And soon his own life is in the balance.
