On The Run

By Dennis E. Smith


Publication Date:  September 26, 2021


Avery's choices were never about right or wrong; they were about survival.


Avery Gillis finds a well-dressed skeleton with a bullet hole in its skull under his bathroom floor. He names it Mr. Bones, and in fear for his life, Avery buries him in a shallow grave in the nearby woods. Avery is afraid he will end up like two friends and co-workers who got him into this mess. They called the FBI to report an international money-laundering scheme, and within days, both were murdered. Now in hiding, Avery alone holds all the evidence. So when a survey crew finds Mr. Bones, Avery panics and calls his only friend, Buck, to meet him at a nearby bar, where a stranger, Billie Rae Robinson, approaches him. Their meeting, however, is not accidental. She knows all about Mr. Bones and suspects Avery isn’t who he pretends to be. 

Avery’s secret life is about to be turned upside down.
