Publisher's Summary

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 great slice of noir." (Ian Rankin)
"With this book, Doug Johnstone hits you and then he runs, and you never catch him until the last word of the last sentence on the last page. Cracking stuff." (Alan Glynn)
