Earlier that same day, Ben discovered a new surgery to restore eyesight. He rushes home to tell Christy, only to find her dead by overdose of sleeping pills.

Loved it, the ending will blow you away!

Awesome Thriller!!!! Great book, great narration!
"Train Wreck: It Wasn't An Accident, An Engineer's Revenge" is one of my favorite books released so far this year! The story, while a Thriller, is extremely emotional at times and the reader pulls you into the mind of a man and woman in despair. There are some humorous moments, but Blair London gives us such a deep look into the psyche of a disturbed woman and her lover. It's sad, but very funny at times... they ending is amazing!
By far, Spike, the bartender was my favorite! He could tell one funny story after another!
Ben and Christy, the lead characters have had their share of horrendous problems. They are likeable, especially Ben, but Spike is the character that was really down to earth, caring and hilarious!
Yes, I have listened to Lauren Holladay. She's quickly becoming one of my favorite narrators. I highly recommend her! She seems like she actually takes on the character and you can hear the heartache in her voice. And, it's silky smooth.. I just love her.
Absolutely! If you've got about 6 hours to spare, go for it! It's well worth it!!!
Get this book. Blair London is going to be a superstar! I can see a movie coming from this!
I read a review by the actor Matthew McConaughey who said of Blair London's books, that he would love to be the lead character if one of her books are made into a movie. He enjoys her writing that much. Megyn Kelly, formerly of Fox News and other well known celebrities give her glowing reviews!
