Thank you to Rachel at Rachel’s Random Resources for giving my the opportunity to review The Cinderella Plan by Abi Silver
When James Salisbury, the owner of a British car manufacturer, ploughs his ‘self-drive’ car into a young family, the consequences are deadly. Will the car’s ‘black box’ reveal what really happened or will the industry, poised to launch these products to an eager public, close ranks to cover things up?
James himself faces a personal dilemma. If it is proved that he was driving the car he may go to prison. But if he is found innocent, and the autonomous car is to blame, the business he has spent most of his life building, and his dream of safer transport for all, may collapse.
Lawyers Judith Burton and Constance Lamb team up once again, this time to defend a man who may not want to go free, in a case that asks difficult questions about the speed at which technology is taking over our lives.
Abi Silver is a new author to me, so I was delving into The Cinderella Plan based solely on the blurb and I wasn’t disappointed. What originally drew me in quickly captivated me. The beginning instantly grabs you and makes you have all these feelings about the car accident. While this is part of a series It can easily be read as a standalone. This is a wonderful book, especially for those who enjoy a good legal thriller book. I honestly couldnt put it down.
