“I was completely gripped from the very first page. I absolutely loved – and loathed – the slow, steady unfolding of your worst nightmare relationship. Robin Morgan-Bentley is a master of hold-your-breath suspense.”
About The Wreckage
One fatal crash. Two colliding worlds. Three wrecked lives.
Ben is driving on the motorway, on his usual commute to the school where he works. 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? And are the dynamics of this friendship exactly what they seem?
“This thriller is so gripping because it could happen to anyone. The Wreckage is original, intelligent and utterly compelling. I loved it.”
“It doesn’t feel like a first novel at all, it’s written with the confidence of someone several books into their writing career. I absolutely loved Alice and her sarcasm. It’s a great original idea, and the style reminded me in parts of authors like Clare Mackintosh, TM Logan and Mark Edwards.”
“The tension builds beautifully and the twist hits you like a ten-ton truck.”
