We weren't in the coach when it crashed. It was 3.15pm when the driver lost control of the wheel. Twenty-eight pupils and two teachers went tumbling over the cliff-face into the ravine. I wish I was there with them. It would have been a nicer way to die. 16-year-old James and his step-brother Henry are the only survivors in a horrific coach crash that kills their entire class. And James knows the nightmare has only just begun. For Henry hates James, bullies him in secret and has promised to kill him one day. Traumatized by the crash and stranded in the French countryside, the boys run to a nearby deserted mansion in search of help. But for James the desperate quest to be found soon turns into a ferocious battle for survival. Henry has trapped him in the house and over the next 48 hours James is forced to play a chilling game of cat and mouse - with a violent and terrifying climax.
