The story line had me hooked from page one and I struggled to put the book down. Reading this book will change the way you drive and approach the roads in the future as well as automatically thinking that any car crash you see could be the result of one of the party involved being paid to instigate the accident for a quick payout.
The book portrays how the strong and influential have contacts to prey on the weak and vulnerable to help them achieve their goals and then dispose of them once their aim has been achieved.
Following the characters plight they find themselves in the current trend of making a fast buck by causing car accidents and using a dodgy lawyers and doctors to fake documents, owing money and out of work the offer is too good to turn down. Unbeknownst to them, the police investigation team is closing in and this adds to the excitement and makes this a page turning thriller.
One of the reasons I enjoyed this book is that it showed the vulnerability of humans. If you were down and out and someone offered you the chance of a way out, would you take the offer knowing that your life would be enhanced and poverty ended even though is through an illegal activity or would your conscious tell you otherwise?
An eye-opening real life tale of insurance fraud that will shock you to the core.
