This book unexpectedly arrived in my post and from reading the description I was intrigued, immediately adding this to the top of my reading pile. In a future world of driverless cars a set of seemingly normal passengers set off on their normal journeys, but what then takes places is a page turner of a story as their cars are highjacked and their faces are projected everywhere. I was gripped from the very first page of this book, it’s one of those futuristic stories that is entirely plausible and that means it makes you think And this book really makes you think – from the start where we meet Libby as she takes her place in the jury investigating an accident involving driverless cars, deciding if the car or the person was at fault, to the stories of the highjacked passengers that we learn as the book progress – what way would you decide? I’ve not read any of John Marrs novels before, but this book really makes me want to check out more I really don’t want to spoil this book, so I can’t give away too much of the plot but this was truly a page turner and I was thrilled to see it’s soon to be made into a Netflix series – I am certain it will translate from page to screen in a big way!

When someone hacks into the systems of eight self-drive cars, their passengers are set on a fatal collision course.

The passengers are: a TV star, a pregnant young woman, a disabled war hero, an abused wife fleeing her husband, an illegal immigrant, a husband and wife - and parents of two - who are travelling in separate vehicles and a suicidal man. Now the public have to judge who should survive but are the passengers all that they first seem?
