5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Twisty Tale., 10 April 2014
This review is from: The Accident: A gripping psychological thriller with a shocking twist (Kindle Edition)
Thank you to the author and publisher for the review copy.

Sue Jackson has the perfect family but when her teenage daughter Charlotte deliberately steps in front of a bus and ends up in a coma she is forced to face a very dark reality.
Retracing her daughter’s steps she finds a horrifying entry in Charlotte’s diary and is forced to head deep into Charlotte’s private world. In her hunt for evidence, Sue begins to mistrust everyone close to her daughter and she’s forced to look further, into the depths of her own past.

An extremely clever and involving past/present mystery story – absolutely addictive, I practically got paper cuts as I avidly turned the pages, following along with Sue as she begins to uncover the hidden layers of Charlotte’s world.

I’m a huge fan of well constructed psychological stories, where nothing is ever as it seems and this is an extremely good example of that kind of tale. Sue has issues of her own, she frequently has breakdowns, so even as she discovers something twisted going on that may be related to her own past, will she get anyone to believe her? Will YOU the reader believe that there is any more going on here than a teenager letting general life woes get on top of her and making a snap, impulsive decision to end her life..

I loved the characters – I sympathised with Sue utterly as she struggles to keep it together in the aftermath of a heart wrenching event, and the well drawn background of her previous experiences that colour and shape how she reacts is perfectly placed to leave you slightly off kilter and wonder if she isnt, perhaps, just losing her mind. Cleverly done – I say no more, I would not want to inadvertantly spoil it.

Told in present time, with flashbacks fleshing out Sue’s history both as a young woman and her life with her Husband, this is truly terrifying in a lot of ways and encompasses an authentic look at issues involving post traumatic stress – clever, intriguing, beautifully flowing and captivating, this is definitely one to watch.

Happy Reading Folks!
