Summary

One decision. One family's future in ruins.

When Jake Buckman decides to let Ryan, his 16-year-old son practice driving home along a deserted street, he has no idea of the deadly consequences.

But in the darkness of night, a runner comes from nowhere and the hit is fatal.

Now Jake and Ryan have two options: admit Ryan's responsibility...or drive home as though nothing happened. What follows is not a clear-cut hit and run, but a split-second decision by a father who will do anything to protect his son.

How much should a parent sacrifice for their child? And could any family survive the burden of such a terrible secret?

Too short ...want more!!!

Any additional comments?

Totally loved this nail biting read but I felt it finished quite abruptly. The only thing that spoiled it a bit for me was the narration. Ron Livingston speaks really fast at times and can come across as bored when rushing through certain sections but overall a great addictive read.

Gripping stuff!

Absolutely first class edge of the seat thriller- keeps the tension up right to the end. I couldn't put it down, in fact I lost sleep, being so totally engrossed in the story I kept thinking, 'just one more chapter,' as time rolled on. Narration was perfect, contributed wonderfully to the overall listening experience without dominating it. Fully recommend this book!

Oh dear

Predictable & totally unbelievable ending.
Started off very well but so much repetition. I feel this story could have been told in half the time.
Truly wanted to like it & there was so much promise but just didn’t live up to it for me.
