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
