On the night of 22 December 1980, a plane crashes on the Franco-Swiss border and is engulfed in flames. Out of 169 passengers, 168 are killed instantly. The miraculous sole survivor is a newborn baby.
But the identity of the child is unknown, and two families - one rich and affluent, and the other poor - step forward to claim her. So begins a private investigation that wil go on for the next 18 years....

And now it seems he has discovered a terrible secret. He plans to take his own life but not before he places his account of the investigation in the girl's hands. However someone else gets to him first....

Original Thriller but Ending Twist Guessable

I like this thriller. The French setting. The imperfect nature of each character. The multiple leads. But I guessed the ending very early on.

LOVED THE STORY DIDN'T ENJOY THE NARRATOR AT ALL

What would have made After the Crash better?

I REALLY ENJOYED THE THEME OF THIS STORY BUT COULDN'T CONTINUE
WITH THE BOOK BECAUSE THE NARRATOR REALLY IRRITATED ME.

AT TIMES I THOUGHT I WAS LISTENING TO ALLO ! ALLO !

I ONLY LISTENED TO A FEW CHAPTERS BEFORE ABANDONING THE BOOK.
I MAY HAVE TO BUY IT IN PAPERBACK.

Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Daniel Philpott?

I AM SURE DANIEL PHILLPOTT IS A THROUGHLY GOOD NARRATOR. HOWEVER, IN THIS INSTANCE I FOUND HIS VOICE VERY IRRITATING
