Summary from Goodreads: Eight self-drive cars set on a collision course. Who lives, who dies? You decide.

When someone hacks into the systems of eight self-drive cars, their passengers are set on a fatal collision course.

The passengers are: a TV star, a pregnant young woman, a disabled war hero, an abused wife fleeing her husband, an illegal immigrant, a husband and wife - and parents of two - who are travelling in separate vehicles and a suicidal man. Now the public have to judge who should survive but are the passengers all that they first seem?

Review: A phenomenal thriller full of twist after twist. How can one book surprise me time and again? Just when I think I understand, another plot twist happens and I’m flabbergasted. I loved this story because you never know what is true and what is fake. Who is behind the hijacking? Who is really a terrible person and who is faking it? You don’t know and you don’t find out until the end. And even thought the book leads you on, it’s a nice smooth ride until, BAM! It hits you. Even the last few pages are filled with a plot twist. Five stars for The Passengers.

Received an advance reader copy in exchange for a fair review.
