A terrible car accident - or calculated murder?


An evening out for five students ends in tragedy, with two dead and one critically injured. Nicci Waldock survives, but her life is left in tatters. Years later, a sighting of Jack Bailey, the brother of her dead friend, leaves her with a shocking realisation about the night of the accident.


Helped by former journalist Celia Henry, Nicci sets out to learn the truth about what really happened, and discovers a series of lies and dangerous secrets that have distorted everything she thinks she knows.


In uncovering the tangled truth of what happened that night three years ago, Nicci must decide who she can trust, and who is about to kill again. And she realises that everything can be saved or lost in the moment before impact.

Alison Bruce

Alison Bruce is the author of eight crime novels and two non-fiction titles. Her first novel, Cambridge Blue (2008), was described by Publishers Weekly as an ‘assured debut’ and introduced both detective, DC Gary Goodhew, and her trademark Cambridge setting. She went on to complete the DC Goodhew series with a further six novels before writing the psychological thriller, I Did It For Us.

Her work has attracted both critical acclaim and a loyal readership. In 2013 and 2016, Alison was short listed for the Crime Writers’ Association Dagger in the Library Award and this year she has been long listed for the third time.

Alison teaches creative writing and is a Royal Literary Fund Fellow at Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridge.

Alison's latest DC Gary Goodhew novel, Cambridge Black, was published by Little Brown in February 2017.

I Did It For Us, Alison's first standalone, was published by Little, Brown in January 2018.
