A corpse in the river, a child mown down, a fugitive slaughtered - three untimely deaths means three murder investigations - unless, of course, they are all part of the same case...Life is tough as a cop at the top - and tougher still with a new baby at home - but DCI Janine Lewis is used to balancing her home life with the challenges of bringing killers to justice. Starting back at work after maternity leave, Janine finds herself in the thick of two major investigations. The badly battered body of a young woman is recovered from the River Mersey and a schoolgirl is killed in a hit and run. As Janine and her team fight to unravel the story behind each death, she struggles with equally demanding dramas at home. "Hit and Run", the second in the "Blue Murder" series, is a gripping new thriller from one of Britain's best crime writers.
