The Accident (Unabridged)

by Linwood Barclay

Open iTunes to Buy


Glen Barber isn't the only person in the small town of Milford with things on his mind. The recession has been bad for his construction business, especially after a mysterious fire destroys one of his buildings. But everyone else in Milford seems to have problems too, as the financial pressures begin to pinch. Glen's troubles, however, are about to escalate to a whole new level. His wife Sheila has her own plans for getting them out of their financial jam, but these come to an abrupt halt when her car is found at the scene of a drunk-driving accident that took three lives. Not only is she dead, but it appears she was the cause of the accident. Suddenly Glen has to deal with a potent mixture of emotions: grief at the loss of his wife, along with anger at her reckless behaviour that leaves their young daughter motherless. If only he could convince himself that Sheila wasn't responsible for the tragedy - but as he looks deeper into the circumstances and begins to realise just how many secrets lurk behind Milford's idyllic facade, he may have to face something much, much worse...

The accident

Brilliant , hooked after first couple of chapters and kept on edge all the way through it

Worth every penny

I was hooked! Guessed some outcomes, but not all & it certainly didn't spoil it for me. :)


Quite disappointed, have enjoyed all LB's books so far and was really looking forward to this. The story is fine to a point, but the conclusion seems rushed, contrived and unimaginative. Feels like Barclay was paid for a multi book deal and this was the best he could come up with to keep his end of the deal.
