ABOUT THE BOOK
One fatal crash

Two colliding worlds
Adam has left his home for the last time. In his final despairing act, he jumps in front of Ben’s car, turning the teacher’s world upside down.
Three wrecked lives
Wracked with guilt, Ben seeks out Alice, Adam’s widow, and her 7-year-old son Max. But as he tries to escape the trauma of the wreckage, could Ben go too far in trying to ease his conscience?
MY THOUGHTS ON THE BOOK
This is the first time I have ever listened to an audiobook. I love listening to podcasts, but I have never tried a full book. I didn’t quite know what to expect and thought that maybe I wouldn’t like it as much as reading the book, but I was so wrong. This audiobook is simply amazing! The voice actors for Alice and Ben are superb and I was immediately able to build a connection with these two characters.
I originally planned to only listen to this book in the car on my journeys to work, but quickly got so addicted to the storyline, that I also found myself listening in the evenings on the sofa.
Alice and Ben are fantastic characters that are so incredibly well crafted and thought through. The storyline is expertly set out and I loved the way we learn so much about each character and really get to experience their worst fears and nightmares.
The wreckage is such a fantastic and gripping thriller with a twist I would have never imagined. I am definitely looking forward to reading more by this author.
