I bought this book to take on holiday in a couple of weeks but I thought I would open it just to see what it was about and I ended up not going to sleep that night. Penny is back on her best ever form and she presents her characters in a sympathetic light but she also makes them human. Some are likeable and some not so likeable but we end up understanding those that maybe we can't really like. I loved this book and her idea of a motorway crash has been well researched and this central theme allows this novel to unfold. It is going to be one of the summer reads

I'm giving this book 4 stars but really I think its 3.5. I started this on holiday and finished it on the aeroplane this morning nearly 2 weeks later. A novel that is fairly ok, a good ish holiday read that I could pick up and put down anytime, little thought process required. Not PVs best, I don't think she can ever quite top No Angel. Swearing in places that wasn't needed, I certainly didn't love any of the characters, I don't think I cared that much about any of them really. Plot became predictable, terminology a bit skewed at times, characters would say something that I thought was out of context. All said though I read it from cover to cover and it kept me entertained, if you like the author and what something that doesn't require too much effort then go for it. I really do need to read the 2nd part of the Spoils of Time. Wonder when we will see something as spectacular as that again?

I have read all Penny's book and this was the most disappointing. I was looking forward to it with relish but found the characters disappointing and annoying. It was very predictable and not enough mystery to it. How annoying the characters Linda and Alex were especially. You can do better than this Penny!

Although I'm a Vincenzi addict, I did feel that her last book wasn't up to the usual standard, This one sees her right back on form and it's totally compulsive. Once again life came to a stop for a complete weekend as I greedily devoured the stories of a group of people whose lives become connected through their involvement in a particularly nasty car smash on the M4.

The characters are believable and have real depth and the plots are innovative and credible. All in all, it's a really good read. When the paperback comes out, it will be the perfect holiday book - shame I won't have that pleasure as I just couldn't wait!
