I'm a big Simon Wood fan, and he's rather criminally under-recognized despite winning many awards in the mystery and suspense fields. Wood writes with a wry and grim determination to carry you to the heart of human truth, however unpleasant it may be at times. Real people with surreal problems--read it and be glad it's not you!

This is the second Simon's Wood book that I have read and thoroughly enjoyed both.
Really enjoyed the lead character, Todd Collins, one of life's losers who after a minor traffic incidents finds himself getting more and more enmeshed in desperate criminal activities.
Very fast moving plot and good characterizations.
Will certainly read more by this author.

I found this quite an extra ordinary book and took some time to get used to the thought processes followed by the main proponent and the quite bizarre choices and behaviours that he made. Once I had suspended my belief and began to get used to his mixture of incompetence and immorality I began to enjoy the book slightly more. Some of the characterisation is quite rich and some of the story becomes funnier as the plot progresses.

Excellent book, it just goes from one disaster to another, the poor man, I can't believe anyone could have such bad luck. A thoroughly captivating book just couldn't put it down

This story kept me on the edge of my seat all the time. A good plot with lots of twists and turns. The first book written by Simon Wood which I have read. .

Todd Collins is a failure. He's hopeless at his job, has no social life to speak of and really isn't at all bothered.

When he bumps his wreck of a car into a beautiful new Porsche, he is relieved t find that the driver is nowhere to be seen and leaves a note but not with his name and insurance details. It simply says 'Sorry'.

Unfortunately for Todd, the Porsche belongs to a local drugs dealer, who is later picked up by the police for driving with a broken taillight. They discover a large concealment of cocaine and now the drug dealer's boss decides to pay Todd a visit.

Forced to steal a car and then deliver another vehicle to Dallas. Although he's not the sharpest knife in the block, Todd is a little suspicious and pulls over to check out the vehicle a little further. What he finds will change his life forever and will draw him ever deeper into the criminal underworld and for once he's going to have learn and adapt in order to succeed. He knows that his life will certainly depend upon it.

This is a shorter Simon Wood story and an ideal starting point for anyone new to the author's work. Like all Simon Wood books, the story is intriguing, intense and develops at a blistering pace. Full of amazingly clever and devious twists, it's sure to keep you guessing until the very end.

Read this and you'll be an instant Simon Wood fan, desperate for more, and with so many great books the only thing you'll have to decide is which one next...

At first I was disappointed that it was a relatively short story, but was not disappointed by the plot. What started out as a careless knock of another car went on to take Todd Collins on a journey he would never have imagined. Great read again by Simon Wood, he never disappoints and his plots are all so very different. Great for a bookworm like me.
