The Moment Before Impact

If you haven’t discovered Alison Bruce yet, then you really should now. Alison started out with Constable many years ago with her Cambridge-set police procedural series featuring DC Gary Goodhew. The series won her many fans and she was shortlisted twice for the CWA Dagger in the Library. When the series came to an end after seven books Alison turned her hand to standalone psychological thrillers. The first, I Did It for Us, was published last year, Sophie Hannah calling it ‘unpredictable, challenging and compelling’. She has now followed up with the equally brilliant The Moment Before Impact, which M W Craven considers to be ‘the perfect crime novel’.

Alison is just so good at ratcheting up the tension while pulling the rug from under your feet – an achievement to be much admired.  With immersive and utterly gripping writing, if you have not done so already, do give Alison a go – I can guarantee you won’t be disappointed!
