Publisher's Summary

Passengers boarding the 10.35 train from Manchester Piccadilly to London Euston have no idea that their journey is about to be brutally curtailed.

Holly has just landed her dream job, and Jeff is heading for an interview after months of unemployment. They end up sitting next to each other. Onboard customer service assistant Naz dreams of better things. And among the others travelling are Nick with his young family; pensioner Meg and her partner, setting off on a walking holiday; Caroline, run ragged by the competing demands of her stroppy teenage children and her demented mother; and Rhona, desperate to get home to her daughter.

And in the middle of the carriage sits Saheel, carrying a deadly rucksack....

    "VERY emotional book"

    A very real story told with such human characters. It has made me cry.
    David Thorpe brought everyone to life beautifully.

    Story
    "Disappointing!"
    Any additional comments?

    I always enjoy the TV dramas 'Vera', which are based on many of this author's novels. This is my first book by her and I am sadly disappointed. It's not very well written. It has an interminable use of repeated strings of "he said, she said, he said". As to the story, we are given background on all of the characters involved. This is needed, but spends too much time on the small details of their lives. It must be acknowledged that issues of race and culture are handled extremely well, but this alone doesn't rescue the story for me. After developing all of the characters. The consequences of the 'deadly rucksack' mentioned in the publisher's note are just depressing. There are no surprises, as such situations are all too familiar. One hour from the end and I am returning it. Fictional accounts of this stuff seem pointless and just feel dispiriting. I'm not sure why I didn't anticipate this before purchasing it.
