Margaret Astbury is Meg Hutchinson, in a new and exciting guise. THE HITCH-HIKER, published in April 2001, launches a fantastic new series of romantic suspense novels from the doyen of the saga.
Philip Bartley stops to pick up a hitch-hiker one rainy night, hoping
for sexual favours in return. But when the car crashes into a hedge,
the slender, blonde figure with the seductive tongue is nowhere to be
seen . . .
That is just the beginning. There are three men with one woman in common. Now that woman, Anna, is dead. Her lover Richard Torrey is determined to get at the bottom of her brutal murder and bring her killers to justice. But his investigations, helped by journalist Kate Mallory and Inspector Bruce Daniels, are hampered by a series of inexplicable events.
For Anna is dead, but not gone . . .
