Split Second is a dramatic story of how the lives of one man and his family were shattered in the blink of an eye by the thoughtless and sudden actions of a total stranger.
Drew Frost had it all: good looks, wealth, his own successful engineering business, a beautiful wife, supportive family and a great social life racing motor bikes. This was everything he had worked for and loved. But one morning, without warning, it was all lost. Nothing could have prepared Drew, and the people closest to him, for what would be the longest journey through a living hell.
How would Drew's family cope with this trauma? Would he survive? Would he walk again? Would his wife stay? These were questions not only in Drew's mind but also in the minds of his family and friends as events began to tear them apart.
Taking place in the early 1980s during the Falklands conflict, with flashbacks to much happier times in the 50s and 60s when Drew was growing up, this tragic story follows Drew's courageous 18 month journey.
During these traumatic events the Frosts would all learn so much about one another and humanity in general, and much of what they found would shock them.
