What made the experience of listening to The Accident the most enjoyable?
Linwood Barclay's excellent writing skills being decently performed by Peter Berkrot.
Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?
Oh, yes, it certainly did; very hard to pull the earplugs out to sleep. The story moved from one exciting moment to the next in this who dunnit.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes, I suppose it was but it was almost too exciting and had my adrenaline coursing late into the night while the plot changed from one suspect to the next.
Any additional comments?
A really good mystery suspense thriller with so many bad characters, from Mr & Mrs next door to major crime figures all living in this small town. It moves along at a decent pace until the denouement which is a real surprise. Great book, highly recommend; can't go wrong with this writer.

Another fantastic thriller from Linwood Barclay! Completely gripping with convincing narration. The only thing hat stopped me giving this five stars is the frustration I sometimes felt with the main character Glen who seems a little slow at realising what's going on!

Linwood Barclay is a master creator of nightmare scenarios for his characters and taking his readers on a roller-coaster of shocks and red herrings before the final resolution. In this book Glen Barber's wife dies in the accident of the title, but the circumstances are very strange. Other unexpected accidents and deaths occur and the listener is drawn into a web of deceit and intrigue that certainly kept me listening. There are many threads to the story and numerous characters, the names of which take some concentration to keep track of, but the reader is very good and his use of different voices helps to identify who is speaking.
Like many thrillers the body count defies credibility, but all in all it's a great story, however unbelievable.

Story had developed well but towards the end it was like how many more times will this guy arrive just in the knock if tone and how many ordeals can he find himself in in one day.
