When James Salisbury, the owner of a British car manufacturer, ploughs his ‘self-drive’ car into a young family, the consequences are deadly. Will the car’s ‘black box’ reveal what really happened or will the industry, poised to launch these products to an eager public, close ranks to cover things up?
James himself faces a personal dilemma. If it is proved that he was driving the car he may go to prison. But if he is found innocent, and the autonomous car is to blame, the business he has spent most of his life building, and his dream of safer transport for all, may collapse.
Lawyers Judith Burton and Constance Lamb team up once again, this time to defend a man who may not want to go free, in a case that asks difficult questions about the speed at which technology is taking over our lives.
I really enjoyed this story and I thought that the author had an excellent writing style that was brilliantly suited to this genre, she worked the story really well and made it a really addictive story.
The book is set at a great pace for the plot and that helps to build up the suspense and intrigue as the story progressed. I thought that the characters were well developed and I liked getting to know more about them, they were genuine and believable and that for me always works really well in this genre.
It is 4.5 stars for me for this one, rounded up to 5 stars for Goodreads and Amazon – it is a well written story, thoroughly enjoyable and very highly recommended and isn’t that a fantastic cover!!
