Synopsis

Driving home from a party with his girlfriend and brother, all of them drunk and high on stolen pills, Billy Blackmore accidentally hits someone in the night. In a panic, they all decide to drive off. But the next day Billy wakes to find he has to cover the story for the local paper. It turns out the dead man was Edinburgh's biggest crime lord and, as Billy struggles with what he's done, he is sucked into a nightmare of guilt, retribution and violence. From the author of the acclaimed Smokeheads, Hit & Run is another pitch-black psychological thriller.

A crime novel with an unusual premise but absorbing in the way in which the perpetrator faces up to the truth of his actions.

Only read 15 chapters and got bored with it especially the disgusting language which seemed to be every other word. I would not read another of this author's books

Thriller with a difference
January 15th, 2015
A very good read and would recommend. Not the usual who done it being based on a young reporter, not too sure it needed the dog which didn't really add to the story for me but didn't distract from the plot either.
