On the Run, On the Hunt (trailer)

A businessman with a dark past, a journalist who won't let it go, and a detective who is closer than he should be.

@MagsTavares You would think after a week the police would have realised that Richard O'Reilly's "suicide" was, in fact, a murder.

William S Hunt
@william_s_hunt

Of course, I have an advantage over them, being the one who murdered him.

William S Hunt
@william_s_hunt

Thoughts, @tonybfrank?

Maggie Tavares
@MagsTavares

wait... are you THE William S Hunt? As in former associate of Richard O'Reilly, etc.? Is this an official reapppearance?

@william_s_hunt Okay, so you're either Hunt or you've got a recent photo of him... fine. Why am I supposed to believe you committed murder?

William S Hunt
@william_s_hunt

What an excellent question. I suggest you start trying to find the answer.

Tony B
@tonybfrank

Are you nuts? This isn't some side-quest treasure hunt, it's murder. To which you've apparently confessed.

The next day

@william_s_hunt

I am glad we can all share our thoughts so easily these days. I certainly sympathise with the detective's disdain for Richard's lifestyle.

Tony B
@tonybfrank

How open minded of you.

William S Hunt
@william_s_hunt

At any rate, Richard would have been wise to examine the way he lived; it did make murdering him that much easier.

Maggie Tavares
@MagsTavares

@william_s_hunt I'm curious... How far back did you and O'Reilly know each other?I think you two had been friends much longer that most people knew...

Later that week

@MagsTavares

Richard O'Reilly's death has been officially declared a murder. An arrest warrant has been issued for William S. Hunt.

Maggie Tavares
@MagsTavares

We have a lead. Allie. She's been working as O'Reilly's personal assistant, convinced by PCI to leave her previous job.

Maggie Tavares
@MagsTavares

After O'Reilly's death, she was not considered worth keeping around - and was let go without references.

Maggie Tavares
@MagsTavares

Do you want to meet Allie, Mr. Hunt? If you would agree to an interview, I can arrange it. She has a lot to say.

Tony B
@tonybfrank

woah woah WOAH what are you doing???? are you insane? are you offering this woman as bait to a murderer?

Then
Tony B
@tonybfrank

@MagsTavares Are you on the way with Allie? I think it would be best if she gets to the station as soon as possible.

Maggie Tavares
@MagsTavares

Sorry - I'm sorry, she's gone.

Maggie Tavares
@MagsTavares

She read Hunt's tweet just now and bolted, she thinks she's next. I tried to follow but I lost her. She's not answering her phone.

Tony B
@tonybfrank

If she contacts you, tell her to stay where she is and call the police, we'll come get her. She might be our only witness to this.
