Wow, a mystery thriller that pulled me in from page one. I had a hard time putting the book down and kept me up late turning the pages to find out what happened.
Three years ago, a collision between a fast-moving freight train and a school bus full of kids led to a devastation and grief on an unimaginable scale. Seventeen kids and three adults were killed, or were they? Detective Amara Alvarez was out enjoying her Saturday breakfast at a local diner when it was disrupted by a husband and wife arguing over a text that she received from their son. One thing leads to another that leaves Amara wondering if the children may still be alive. With time running out, Amara must convince herself and her co-workers that yes, the boy is alive and that she will do everything in her power to bring him and the other children home.
A clean mystery that was emotional, intense, mesmerizing, leaving you wondering what happened to the children. “Collision of Lies” was the first book that I read from the author Tom Threadgill and am looking forward to the next book in the Detective Amara Alvarez series.
I received a copy of the book from Revell Publishing in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own.
