A desperate mother plans her own murder as an act of twisted revenge against the man she believes is responsible for her son's disappearance.
Five years ago fourteen year old Jack East caught the bus home from school, walked down a country lane and vanished.
His mother Sherry has never recovered, her life poisoned by grief.
Gray Cummings is a man with a past, ambitious, arrogant and afraid.
When their worlds collide it looks like a simple hit and run accident. But as DCI Julia Miles often tells her dishy younger Sergeant, Matthews, things are never that simple.
What if Sherry deliberately walked in front of Gray’s car? Was she really executing her own murder? What is the connection between Sherry and Gray? Could he have something to do with her son’s disappearance?
But Sherry survived the collision and now she is denying any knowledge of Gray and he is on the run from the police.
Set in the sleepy village of Gothen, nestling in the Cotswolds Hills, Walk Away is a modern murder mystery.
We follow Matthews and Julia as they flirt and eat their way through the investigation. They search for Gray and in doing so finally uncover what happened to Jack East and why his mother chose Gray Cummings as her murderer.
