Synopsis

Never Look Away by Linwood Barclay

It starts with a trip to a local amusement park. David Harwood is hoping a carefree day will help dispel his wife Jan's recent depression that has led to frightening thoughts of suicide. Instead, a day of fun with their son Ethan turns into a nightmare. When Jan disappears from the park, David's worst fears seem to have come true. But when he goes to the police to report her missing, the facts start to indicate something very different. The park's records show that only two tickets were purchased, and CCTV shows no evidence that Jan ever entered the park at all. Suddenly David's story starts to look suspicious - and the police to wonder if Jan's already dead, murdered by her husband. To prove his innocence and keep his son from being taken away from him, David is going to have to dig deep into the past and come face to face with a terrible childhood tragedy - but by doing that he could risk destroying everything precious to him...

Reviews

another instalment of literary crime fiction so gripping it reads like a dirty airport thriller. Indeed, Barclay's latest is being hailed as his best - which is no small feat for the much-acclaimed author of No Time for Goodbye and Too Close to Home. ... A chilling triumph and a must-read. * CITY AM * Expect the unexpected in this compelling, unputdownable best-seller. * TELEGRAPH & ARGUS * Author Linwood Barclay just gets better ... Tense and exciting -- Kati Nicholl * DAILY EXPRESS * `This has to be one of the most engrossing thrillers of the year ... the reader is swept up into the twisted plotting and held in total suspense until the final denouement.

* DAILY MAIL * More wriggles and twists than a bag full of snakes ... mind-blowingly good -- Alex Gordon * EVENING TELEGRAPH * Where has Linwood Barclay been all my life? His is the best thriller I've read in five years. Once I was 30 pages in, I literally couldn't put it down. The writing is crisp; the twists are jolting and completely unexpected. Think 'Rebecca
and you

'll be in the right neighborhood. -- STEPHEN KING * ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY *'
