Review quote

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.' -- Carla McKay * 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 *show more
