You can only run for so long...

Fashion model Lynn Giles is tipped for the top - excelling in her career and love life, she has never been happier. But her dreams are cruelly shattered by a bomb blast that leaves her badly scarred. Suddenly her career's in ruins and her long-term boyfriend is gone.

Plagued by the paparazzi, she flees to Cornwall where she meets and falls in love with her handsome neighbour, blind crime novelist, Alan Murray.

As a new life starts to fall into place, her former boss threatens to tell Alan about her past indiscretions unless Lynn agrees to become one of his porn stars.

She refuses and is miraculously saved from exposure when her boss ends up taking a dive off a cliff. Relief doesn't last long though as a series of unsettling incidents, leads Lynn to suspect that her novelist lover may not be all he claims to be ...

David Hodges' latest crime thriller, Blast, again delivers the gritty realism that only an experienced ex-copper can provide.
