"If you made a mistake that took someone's life, you'd remember it... wouldn't you? After a tragedy rocks the community of Promise Falls, Cal Weaver is asked to investigate the threats being made to the accused's family. He's heard all about it on the news: the young man who drank too much, stole a Porsche and killed a girl, and who claimed afterwards not to remember a single thing. The whole town is outraged that he got off lightly, but for reasons Cal can't explain, he accepts the job. Then Cal finds himself caught up in a vicious revenge plot, chasing someone set on delivering retribution. In Cal's experience, it's only ever a matter of time before threats turn into action..."--

Love Linwood Barclay!

This author is just so good and Promise Fall, first the trilogy and now this one are such an amazing read. The characters are well developed and the plots are captivating. You will be drawn in after the first chapter and have a hard time putting down the books. Wish he could write faster!

If you want drama/crime, this is the author for you. Probably best to start reading in order because referrals are made to previous characters and events. His books are never disappointing with twists and turns you never saw coming.

I LOVE THIS WRITER!! If you haven't read his Promise Falls Trilogy, you missed some great reading! The first book is a good read, but not up to his usual standard. But it gives you the background for the following two books, which are fantastic reads. As is Parting Shot, the fourth book in the Promise Falls series.
Why do I love this writer so much.... He writes intriguing mysteries that have a lot happening, a lot of surprising twists. They are serious stories but they always have an undercurrent of humour. Not too many writers can put all these elements together as well Barclay can.
Besides his Promise Falls books, his other memorable book is Trust Your Eyes. The plotting in that book is so masterful! It is original, scary, and very funny all at the same time.
