The Cinderella Plan
When James Salisbury, the owner of a British car manufacturer, ploughs his ‘self-drive’ car into a young family, the consequences are deadly. Will the car’s ‘black box’ reveal what really happened or will the industry, poised to launch these products to an eager public, close ranks to cover things up?
James himself faces a personal dilemma. If it is proved that he was driving the car he may go to prison. But if he is found innocent, and the autonomous car is to blame, the business he has spent most of his life building, and his dream of safer transport for all, may collapse.
Lawyers Judith Burton and Constance Lamb team up once again, this time to defend a man who may not want to go free, in a case that asks difficult questions about the speed at which technology is taking over our lives.

My Thoughts And Review:
My first dance with this author. And what a dance it was! Surely we would have won the Glitter ball.
James Salisbury has spent fifteen years building hi company SEDA. SEDA designs and manufactures autonomous cars. A technology that allows the car to drive in the safest way possible. A combination of lasers, radar and cameras make this the safest driving experience ever. No accidents, injuries or fatalities.
The cars on the road at the moment are hybrids: allowing the driver to take control. James Salisbury is in such a car when the impossible happens, an accident. An accident that kills 2 children, seriously injures there mother. James himself has amnesia and no recollection of the accident.
He finds himself on trial and if found guilty of controlling the car faces prison. If the car has malfunctioned, his dreams and company will fold.
What transpires is a novel with more twists and turns than Chubby Checker! Who is behind this accident, if not James? Rival car companies, political lobbyists and colleague with their eye on the big prize, James’s company! Could be all of them or none. You will have to read this book to find out. As soon as you think you know who it is, you are thrown a curveball and are back to square one.
Top quality writing, fantastic story that will have you turning the pages furiously!
Read it! You will not be disappointed. Trust me!
