About the Author

LS Hawker is the author of the thrillers THE DROWNING GAME, BODY AND BONE, and END OF THE ROAD, published by HarperCollins Witness Impulse. THE DROWNING GAME is a USA Today bestseller and finalist in the ITW Thriller Awards in the Best First Novel category. Hawker grew up in suburban Denver, indulging her worrisome obsession with true-crime books, and writing stories about anthropomorphic fruit and juvenile delinquents. She wrote her first novel at 14. Armed with a B.S. in journalism from the University of Kansas, she had a radio show called "People Are So Stupid," produced fitness videos, and outfitted airports with computer equipment for a major airline, but never lost her passion for fiction writing. Her extensive media background includes everything from public affairs director at a Denver radio station to television sports intern to website designer. She's got a hilarious, supportive husband, two brilliant daughters, and a massive music collection. She lives in Colorado but considers Kansas her spiritual homeland. Visit to view her book trailers, listen to her podcast with daughter Chloe, The Lively Grind Cafe, and read about her adventures as a cocktail waitress, traveling Kmart portrait photographer, and witness to basement exorcisms.

Linda Zagon's review Dec 13, 2018 · edit really liked it Linda's Book Obsession Reviews "The Throwaways" by L.S. Hawker, The Vanishing Point Press Ltd., January 22, 2019 L.S. Hawker, Author of "The Throwaways" has written an intense, intriguing, energetic adventure. The Genres for this story are Mystery, Suspense, Thriller and Fiction. The timeline for this story is around 1986 and goes to the past and future when it pertains to the characters or events in this story. The author describes her quirky and dysfunctional characters as dull, complex, and complicated. George Engle has had 2 significant moments in his otherwise unnoticeable life. The first was when his idolized twin brothers were killed in an accident, when George was 13. The second was when he wakes up in a car , and sees a house explode. In the car with him are cocaine, and evidence of other significant items that fit with the crime. George doesn't remember anything. George does realize that he has to do something. George has always seemed like an "invisible" guy with no major motivation or inclination to achieve anything in his life. At this moment he is anything but. If he didn't cause the explosion, who did? George seeks out his High School friends to help him solve this mystery. Only this mystery now has turned into three murders. George's friends each have their own unique set of problems. Who and why would anyone want to frame George for anything? There are twists and turns, and ups and downs, and danger from the get-go. The world George seems to be running from is involved with drugs and criminal activity. I would recommend this exciting thriller for readers who enjoy action and suspense.
