Hi, it’s Walker Boone here. There’s a dead guy in the bathtub, my gun’s responsible for the dead part and I don’t know how to get out of this mess.
The thing is I didn’t kill the guy and until I can find out who did, I’m on the run. It’s not as easy as you might think. This is Savannah and everyone knows me. I’m that lawyer guy who dives the ’57 red Chevy convertible. It’s a given I can’t use that as a get-away car so I switched it for a pink scooter. No ones going to look for me in a pink scooter...right?
Now where to hide is the problem. I can’t leave town. If I do that I’ll never find the killer and I’ll be on the run for the rest of my life. I don’t want to be on the run, I want to stay in Savannah.
I’m a Southern boy, I like it here, it’s home. I have a house, and a law practice, a dog named Bruce Willis and I have a girl, a special girl. And that’s where things get even trickier.
It’s been a little rocky between us since I represented her ex in their divorce a few years back and sort of took her to the cleaners in the settlement. In my own defense she’s the one who signed the prenup that made the cleaners part pretty darn easy.
But since then our paths kept crossing. I know her mom, her aunt, Bruce Willis--our shared rescued pup—thinks I’m a good guy and then there are the dead bodies that keep popping up. Hard to imagine forming a relationship over a corpse but that’s how it is. We’re usually trying to find the killer sometimes together, other times not so much.
Reagan…that’s her name, Reagan Summerside...has her ways of doing things and I have mine. Mine are a little more calculated and thought out. Hers are mostly dumb luck that puts her in the right place at the wrong time.
We’ve gotten close, closer than I’ve ever been to anyone. Why did I have to figure this out now of all times when things are so uncertain? Why not before?
Well there you have it. I’m a guy on the lam and a guy in love and I don’t know how to fix either one. Wish me luck and maybe give me some advice on how to let Reagan,...this very special girl in my life...know I care about her when I can’t even let her know where I am.
