After The Crash

Yesterday I finished reading After the Crash by Michael Bussi. It's been a while since I've read such a page turner. It was suspensful right up until the last pages and I couldn't put it down. Here is a review from Amazon.

Just after midnight on December 23, 1980, a night flight bound for Paris plummets toward the Swiss Alps, crashing into a snowy mountainside. Within seconds flames engulf the plane, which is filled with holiday travelers. Of the 169 passengers, all but one perish.

The sole survivor is a three-month-old girl--thrown from the airliner before fire consumes the cabin. But two infants were on board. Is "the Miracle Child of Mont Terri" Lyse-Rose or Emilie? The families of both girls step forward to claim the child. Dogged by bad luck, the Vitrals live a simple life, selling snacks from a van on the beaches of northern France. In contrast, the de Carvilles, who amassed a fortune in the oil business, are powerful-and dangerous.

Eighteen years later, a private detective tasked with solving the mystery of the girl known as "Lylie" is on the verge of giving up. As he contemplates taking his own life, Crédule Grand-Duc suddenly discovers a secret hidden in plain view. Will he live to tell it?

Meanwhile, Lylie, now a beautiful university student, entrusts a secret notebook into the hands of Marc, the brooding young man who loves her, and then vanishes. After Marc reads the notebook's contents, he embarks on a frantic search for Lylie.

But he is not the only one looking for her.



  1. Oh wow!!!! That sounds goooood!

    But please, be "careful" with Post Titles. ,-)))) Not-nice thoughts ran through my mind, when reading this one. You have been on the road a lot. Crash. After the crash. See where my mind raced to?????????? Eeeeeek.

    I know. I know. I can be a drama queen. but.... but..... :-) :-) :-)

    Gentle hugs,

  2. Oh my gosh, I never meant to scare you. Sorry about that. You would love this book.

  3. Argg! Lost my comment. This looks like a book I'd really enjoy! I read about little Sadie's difficulties, and I'm so sorry to hear that she is going through this! It's hard to deny a beloved pet a treat. Maybe your vet can suggest a low cal treat, or perhaps you can save a bit of Sadie's regular food and give that to her as a treat. My silk Noreen gives arthritic Gracie, her lab, glucosamine (for dogs) and that seems to ease her discomfort. The pill tastes like a treat, and Gracie loves them. Or maybe it's her prescription drug? Like, now I'n not sure. I have missed your blog so much! Can you hear me kicking myself! Have a great weekend! Hugs to you!
