Ray finds himself in a moral debacle when a joy ride on a stolen motorbike ends in the inadvertent death of an old woman.

Reviews - What do customers think about Collision Course?
excellent first chapter for EFL-teaching Dec 9, 2001
Nigel Hinton tells the story of a boy who cannot resist the temptation of trying out a motorbike that has been parked outside a pub with the engine running. The reader feels Ray's fascination as he mounts the bike and goes for his first ride which ends in a fatal accident as he loses control of the bike and runs down an elderly lady (chapter one). It is particularly this chapter that lends itself to EFL-teaching as it is exciting and full of useful vocabulary.
