Praise for The Passengers

Another savagely clever near-future thriller. Provocative, terrifying and compulsive. If you loved The One, you'll love this!

Cara Hunter, Sunday Times bestselling author of Close to Home

Marrs is brilliant at twists and for the addicts of adrenaline-fuelled twisty rides, this book really delivers the goods

Peter James

One of the most exciting, original thriller writers out there. I never miss one of his books

Simon Kernick

With some real jaw dropping moments, it was an edge of your seat read that even surpassed The One. This will be the must read book of summer 2019.

Claire Allan

The Passengers is a 1970s disaster movie by way of Black Mirror. If you're looking for a sleek, exhilarating ride, look no further

Financial Times

Fast-paced, gripping and with twists and turns that catch you unawares – you’ll want to hang on to your seat belts until the very last page.
