With the runaway success of last year’s No Time for Goodbye, expectations have been high for Barclay’s next novel and luckily he doesn’t disappoint. When the Cutter’s neighbours are all shot dead in their home one night, the Cutter family find themselves wondering whether the killers simply went to the wrong house and the real target was, in fact, themselves. They all have secrets to hide, how long will they be kept secrets now? Each chapter ends with you wanting to read more so make sure you have a few hours to settle down and read.

Too Close to Home Synopsis

When the Cutter family's next-door-neighbours, the Langleys, are gunned down in their house one hot August night, the Cutters' world is turned upside down. That violent death should have come so close to them is shocking enough in suburban Promise Falls, but at least the Cutters can console themselves with the thought that lightning is unlikely to strike twice in the same place. Unless, of course, the killers went to the wrong house.

At first the idea seems crazy. But gradually we discover that each of the Cutter family has a secret they'd rather keep buried. What was on that old computer teenage Derek and his friend Adam Langley had salvaged? And where is it now? What hold does a local professor and bestselling author have on Eileen Cutter? And what does Jim Cutter know about Mrs Langley that even her husband didn't?

To find out who killed the Langleys and why, everybody's secrets are going to have to come out. But the final secret - the secret that could save them or destroy them - is in the one place nobody would ever think of looking...
