The pace intensifies progressively. Initially, the novel focuses on the return to life of Beth, on her discovery of the death of her husband and the fact that life went on without her. This part is very well led, it allows us to feel Beth's feelings and to understand later how horrible are the online videos. When Beth understands that they disappear go, she tries to contact the owners to find that they die one after the other. From there, the tempo accelerates as Beth must find the other owners before they disappear. Her purpose is both to warn them of the danger and finding what, in the video, is so compromising. What was once a simple quest for Beth who wanted to see the last moments of her husband, while she passed out, eventually became a real enigma. Knowing who wants to remove the video and witnesses and why doing so become her priority... and ours.
I do not like movies where the main character risks her/his life by systematically taking the wrong decision and in which the villain keeps coming back. It has the knack of getting on my nerves - literally.Read more ›
After striking the camper, their car flipped upside-down. She smelled gasoline, and knew she had to get them both away from the vehicle. Severely injured and confused, she made her way out of the car and onto the road. She crawled toward the sound of footsteps on gravel. Was it another driver who had come upon the scene and stopped to assist them?
Lying face down on the roadway, as she turned, she could see a pair of feet and tried to cry out. She was weak and it was more and more difficult to keep her head up, all the while fighting to remain conscious. She must tell whoever is there that Luc is still in the car, suspended over the airbag. She raised her head and saw someone standing in front of her. As soon as she tried to speak, a foot swung back and kicked her square in her face. Before she sunk into total darkness, she heard the crack of her teeth and jaw as they shattered.
When she next awoke, she turned and saw Luc on a gurnee next to her. Paramedics and emergency vehicles had arrived. She also saw a crowd nearby, kept back by yellow police tape, all leaning in to get a closer look at her and Luc. She turned back to her husband again, and in the midst of his pain and confusion, she heard him mumble “Sorry…”.Read more ›

Beth Jordan is involved in an auto accident that ultimately takes her husband's life. When she comes to, she's laying on the ground and there are dozens of people who are taking pictures and filming the aftermath.
When she wakes weeks later in the hospital, she is told her husband died and has been cremated. She also learns that million of people have seen the phone clips which were shared online.
The driver of the other car has vanished ... the van had been stolen .. . and Beth needs those recordings to piece together what really happened.
As she recovers in her brother's home, she starts looking at the clips. She sees her husband whispering something to the paramedic who was attending him.
As she begins her search to find this paramedic, she also discovers something else. Some of the clips are disappearing off the internet .. and the people who filmed the accident have been murdered.
So what was filmed that someone doesn't want out there? What did her husband say to the paramedic?
And who is the man who keeps coming after her ... the one who wants her dead?
This one drew me in from the very beginning. It's a gripping thriller that will keep you guessing until the very end. There are a couple of major twists that seem to swirl around the entire story.
The characters are well thought out. Beth is a woman who has it all .. a loving husband, a new home, and she's happy with her life. She seems so determined and strong .. and wonders who she will be now. Her brother, Jody, is what I would expect an older brother to be. They've not always been close, but he's trying so hard to get it right. He's loving and caring and worries.
The killer is a sadistic serial killer. He's brutal in his favorite way to kill ... and it doesn't matter if it's a man, woman, or child. The reader gets to meet him early on in the story, but who is he working for? and why?
Many thanks to the author / Endeavour Press / NetGalley who provided a digital copy in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.

Mary and her husband are involved in a terrible car crash. With her husband lying terribly injured beside her, Mary watches a set of feet emerge from behind the car they crashed into and walk over to where she is sprawled. One of the feet kicks her in the jaw and she blacks out.
When she wakes, she is still at the crash site but on a stretcher. Her husband is on a stretcher beside her and, despite his injuries, is trying to tell her something. A large crowd has gathered and a number of people are recording the event with their phones. She goes ballistic and attacks them.
When she comes round in hospital, she is informed that her husband died of his injuries. Worse still, the most traumatic event of her life has become a YouTube sensation with footage of her attack on the onlookers being viewed all over the world.
Mary learns that the man driving the car in front vanished from the scene. The car was registered under a false name. She must contact every person she attacked who recorded the event and ask for their help.
But somebody is murdering the people who used their hand held devices and is removing their recordings. Mary must try to reach them before the digital fragments of the event disappear altogether.
As Mary moves closer to the truth. she realizes the crash conceals a secret someone will do anything to conceal
A very interesting story, a main character in which it's easy to identify yourself, a never ending irritating suspense that you blows you away.
I did not like the many point of views of the story which does make you dizzy at times and hard to follow between everyone, especially the flashbacks of Mary and her husband.
What I liked about this book is how it brings out society today and how there is always someone there to record your terrible moment, i.e. car accident and are so quick to upload it to the internet for everyone to see. I really did like the plot twist at the end, it was very clearly handled!
When Beth woke to find herself in the hospital, the doctors informed her that her jawbone had been in fragments when she was admitted and had to be replaced with plates. She also learned that she had been in a coma for over eight weeks. Her first question - "Luc?" Where is he? Did her survive the crash? Unfortunately, the answers weren't what she wanted to hear. But Beth was soon to learn that this was just the beginning of what awaits her as she travels from France to America in search of answers to the last word Luc uttered to her... "sorry" and the one word she was told he uttered to the emergency nurse at the site "Allegro."
Author Richard Parker has a knack for writing books that will keep you not only on the edge of your seat but also finding it impossible to put down . This book is no exception. Each chapter fills the reader with nail biting action that draws you tightly into the story. And with the chapters being 1 - 2 pages long, you'll find it hard not to read 'just one more.' I can never get enough of his books.
