Oh, yes, it’s finally here, and it’s quite simply fabulous! I’ve been eagerly awaiting the last in the ‘Promise Falls’ trilogy, each book has ramped up my expectation for the next, and I was literally dancing in my seat when I got hold of ‘The Twenty-Three’. Chapter one, once again is a statement of intent, two sentences, 19 words, and you know you're in for a thrilling, chilling ride. People are dropping like flies in the town of Promise Falls, Detective Barry Duckworth hasn't got time to think, let alone eat. There are surprises at every corner and the story is drenched in tension. Linwood Barclay wields a sledge hammer full of impact, yet it’s his ability to point you in the direction of the small things, the subtle, the hidden, that I really admire. As with life, all the threads aren't left in a neat and tidy row, there are a few left unfinished, left free, to float in your mind, and creep up on you long after you've finished. ‘The Twenty-Three’ is a zig-zagging, mind-gripping, wonderfully entertaining read, and I loved every exhilarating second of it. ~ Liz Robinson

Here's what one of our members thinks of her bag
A big thank you for the two Lovereading bags I ordered, which have arrived safely. I love mine and will use it with pride. The bags are lovely quality, sturdy and support a good cause in the Rewrap initiative; I think they make the perfect accessory for any book lover. The second bag was a gift for my sister and she says she will take it to her next book group meeting to help spread the Lovereading word. Once again, many thanks. Emily Wright

Synopsis

The Twenty-Three by Linwood Barclay

A dark cloud of suspicion and fear continues to hang over the town of Promise Falls. A series of bizarre, ominously threatening incidents suggests someone is plotting to take revenge on the town. But who is the perpetrator, and revenge for what? Now the time for threats is over. And the inhabitants are about to discover the truth, with devastating consequences.

Reviews

There's definitely something rotten in Promise Falls. In THE TWENTY-THREE, the riveting final installment of the Promise Falls trilogy, the story comes to a frightful and fitting conclusion. Nothing is more satisfying than tucking into a new Linwood Barclay novel, and this is one we've all been waiting for. -- Shari Lapena, author of THE COUPLE NEXT DOOR
