I read this book for this month's "Thriller" theme in my online book club, The Reading Cove. It had me at hello - the prologue was crisp, engaging and witty.

I enjoyed the alternating points-of-view, mainly first person through Glen's experience, but we also got third person with some of the other characters, which gave the story a nice balance.

Set in bad economic times with themes of middle class people turning to selling knock off purses, prescription drugs, etc. to make ends meet, I was guessing right up until the end, but the story did feel like it went on a little bit longer than necessary. But all in all, THE ACCIDENT was a very intelligent, well put together page-turner! B+
