Who is Margaret Astbury?

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.

The Hitch-hiker

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 . . .

Reverend Peter Darley has a mortal sin on his conscience, and as he struggles with his faith, he finds that even the church cannot provide sanctuary from his impure thoughts . . .

A whiff of perfume, a pair of hyacinth blue eyes are oddly familiar to James Connor. Will they cause the Deputy Police Commissioner to lose his head?

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 . . .
