“Is it too late to tell him you love him when you are looking down the barrel of his gun?”
An English debutante transforms from Miss-Perfectly-Correct to criminally insane as she breaks the bonds of her rigid upbringing. Sheriff Hank Gephart tries to reel her in - but she’s out of control and she’s not hitting the brakes.
What happened to the genteel lady in twin-set and pearls? And why did she shoot Mr Right?
Brake Failure is set in 1999 in the months leading up to Y2K “meltdown” when the US government was spending $150 billion preparing for Armageddon As Lionel Shriver says in her novel, We Have To Talk About Kevin: "1999, a year widely mooted beforehand as the end of the world."
About the Author:
Alison Brodie is an ex-model and internationally-published author. GOOD HOUSEKEEPING chose her debut for their Pick of the Paperbacks. The Scottish Daily Mail reviewed 'Face to Face': "Vain but wildly funny leading lady."
Alison has a criminal record for busking/disturbance of the peace in Piccadilly Circus; speeding in Spain and hustling in Athens. She lives in Biarritz, where she can be found speaking unnintelligabuble French.
Her latest novel - 'THE DOUBLE' - is out now on Amazon Kindle. "...another addition to Brodie's body of work and proof of her genius in writing fiction." ~San Francisco Book Review

I absolutely loved this book. I found both Ruby Thompson and Claire van de Ghekkinck quite amusing and entertaining. I also would have liked to know what happens after the book ended. I gave this book a 5 star rating and got a copy in exchange for an honest review. Last Word: I managed to read this book in a week, I found it to be a pleasant read. Enjoy, Carmen.
