The Passengers by John Marrs – Book Review


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

The new gripping page-turning thriller from the bestselling author of THE ONE – soon to be a major Netflix series.

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?



An inquest is being held to determine who is at fault during accidents with driverless cars…..the car or the human…a jury watches videos of accidents and makes decisions on quite basic information….the car is usually exonerated.

But, then 8 driverless cars are taken over by The Hacker, the inquest jury, headed by MP Jack Larsson is told to decide who of the 8 will survive…

They are given a chance to interview each person to make an informed decision, Libby though, knows one of the Passengers….Jude, the person she met in a bar and believes he is the One.

It taps into our fear of a loss of control, being in a car with no driver…..would my life be deemed worth saving over that of someone else in an accident….

What follows is one of the most twisty thrillers I’ve read. There are so many secrets and lies to keep you guessing right to the breathtaking end. A definite must read for any lover of a dark thriller……a thought provoking nail biter….a brilliant 5 * read.

I would like to thank the Pigeonhole and the author for the opportunity to read this book for free and this is my honest and unbiased review.
