Series: Garnet Oracle Readers

It’s my job to look at people and to think carefully about them. I was sure there was something strange about this man. His hair – nobody has their hair cut quite like that now. And that suit – it was quite clean, quite new, but the trousers and the jacket were different somehow … Where had I seen a suit like that before? 

There has been a car crash on an empty road, and a driver who thinks he has killed a man. Sue Fraser is a police officer. She has to investigate the accident. First she must find the strange hitchhiker – the man she gave a lift to on the day the accident happened.
