One fatal crash. Two colliding worlds. Three wrecked lives.
School teacher Ben is driving on the motorway, on his usual commute to work.
A day like any other…
Except for one man who, in a final despairing act, jumps in front of Ben’s car, turning the teacher’s world upside down in a single horrifying instant…
Wracked with guilt and desperate to clear his conscience, he develops a friendship with Alice, the dead man’s wife, and her 7-year-old son Max.
But as he tries to escape the trauma of the wreckage, could he go too far in trying to make amends?
How would you cope, knowing you’d caused someone’s death?
Thanks to Compulsive Reader Tours and Trapeze books for my copy of the new psychological thriller, ‘The Wreckage’ by Robin Morgan-Bentley.
Whilst driving to work one morning, teacher Ben, finds himself at the centre of another person’s suicide when a man throws himself in front of his car on the motorway.
Racked with guilt, Ben tries to find out the fate of the jumper, leading him to the hospital bed of the victim, and his wife Alice...
The story that follows is an immersive, compulsive and at times intense thriller. Told from the 2 viewpoints from both Ben and Alice, Robin Morgan-Bentley writes a cracking tale that holds your interest and keeps you turning. I read the book in a couple of sittings.
The story moves along at a decent pace, and the suspense builds slowly but surely.
A book that’s about obsession, mental health, and how 2 flawed and believable characters deal with the aftermath of a tragedy.
Assured, confident writing, I was engrossed from the start and this is a book I highly recommended
