"You find yourself quite frantic to know the truth, before this cleverly constructed, smart mystery concludes by delivering a delicious sting in the tail."--Sunday Express (UK) "Fast-paced and action-packed, this thriller is adrenaline pumping. Bussi offers a smart, complex mystery with plenty of plausible twists and surprises ... An engrossing story that's almost impossible to put down."--Shelf Awareness "After the Crash opens with a wrenching scene that will serve as the mystery's terrifically compelling central conceit....sit back and go along for the ride....Bussi's tucked a lot of enjoyable - and enjoyably surprising - pieces into his puzzle."--Boston Globe "A richly satisfying story...a hugely enjoyable ride."--Irish Independent "A novel so extraordinary that it reminded me of reading Stieg Larsson for the very first time...I doubt I'll read a more brilliant crime novel this year."--Sunday Times (UK) "This fascinating tale of intrigue and murder delves into complicated family bonds as it builds to a surprising and shocking conclusion."--Publishers Weekly "Wonderfully ingenious and altogether satisfying."--Marilyn Stasio, New York Times Book Review "After the Crash is a jolt to the senses and a jolt to the heart--both rollicking and labyrinthine, both wildly propulsive and yet rich with grand drama, and with a cast of characters--particularly its sumptuously powerful women--you won't forget."--Megan Abbott, author of The Fever and the forthcoming You Will Know Me "Riveting! Bussi spins psychological suspense at its finest with this consuming tale of one child, two families, and the dark secrets that define us all. Clear your schedule; this book is worth it!"--Lisa Gardner, #1 New York Times-bestselling author of Crash & Burn and Find Her
