The Accident by C L Taylor. Read March 2014

“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.”
This is a fast paced thriller that hooks you on page one and keeps you interested throughout. The story is told by Sue, mainly in the present but with flashbacks to her former life twenty years ago. Gradually the pieces of the jigsaw come together and it becomes clear how her earlier experiences have influenced current events.
The flashback sequences are menacing and disturbing, and made me sympathise with the young Sue whereas I found present day Sue annoying at times. Overall I enjoyed the suspense and trying to work out what was going on and whether there might be a big plot twist in store. The story built through many twists and turns to a shocking conclusion and left me feeling that I’d had a truly satisfying reading experience.
I read The Accident over just a couple of days, a sure sign of my enjoyment. Recommended for psychological thriller fans.
