I always know I will have a great read whenever I start a book by Linwood Barclay, and his books never disappoint. He knows how to get his reader’s attention with an intriguing hook that creates suspense right off the bat. Then, each chapter creates more uncertainty and tension that has you wanting to read just one more chapter before you have to get back to life.
Linwood Barclay creates an enjoyable, fun, unique, complex story with some likeable, unlikable, some stereotyped characters and characters that defy stereotypes. There are a few characters here, and at times I struggled with keeping up with them all, and that did stall the story for me. The pace is fast with all the page-turning action that had me at the edge of my seat. It is a bit over the top and does require suspending some disbelief, but entertaining and fun right up to the last page. I highly recommend it.
I received a copy form the publisher through EW.
