Far From True: A Thriller by Linwood Barclay

Far From True
A Thriller
by Linwood Barclay

Publisher: Doubleday Canada
Hardcover, 480 pages

Barclay just gets better and better. He has mastered the complex puzzle of mystery writing and keeps so many balls in the air you are guaranteed to be taken by surprise again and again.

I loved the first book in the series and was seriously excited when this one came out. It is part of a trilogy so I have to wait til November for the final installment.

This book stands alone or is even better read in order. Click on the book jacket below to view the first book in the series.

From the Back Flap:

From the Canadian king of suspense comes this edge-of-your-seat thriller with a startling twist, for fans of Harlan Coben, Lisa Gardner and Tami Hoag.

New York Times and #1 international bestselling author Linwood Barclay delivers the second spine-chilling thriller set in the troubled town of Promise Falls.

     After the screen of a run-down drive-in movie theater collapses and kills four people, the daughter of one of the victims asks private investigator Cal Weaver to look into a break-in at her father's house. Cal discovers a hidden room where salacious activities have taken place--as well as evidence of missing DVDs. But it may not be the discs the thief was interested in. . . .

1st book in the series
     Meanwhile, Detective Barry Duckworth is still trying to solve two murders he believes are connected, since each featured a similar distinctive wound. And when yet another murder happens, Cal and Barry are both driven to pursue their investigations, no matter where they lead. But where they lead may be more horrific than either man can imagine.

Linwood Barclay is a New York Times and #1 international bestselling author whose critically acclaimed novels have been optioned for film and TV.
