Kort biografi
At the age of 22, Linwood left the resort and got his first newspaper job, at the Peterborough Examiner.
In 1981, he joined the Toronto Star, Canada’s largest circulation newspaper. For twelve years he held a variety of editing positions, then became the paper’s humour columnist in 1993. A few thousand columns later, he retired from the paper in 2008 to write books full-time.

After writing four comic thrillers featuring the character Zack Walker, Linwood turned to darker, standalone novels, starting with No Time for Goodbye, which became an international hit. The novel has been translated into nearly forty languages, was the single bestselling novel in the UK in 2008, and has been optioned for film by Eric McCormack. Since then, all of Linwood’s novels have appeared on bestseller lists, and more his books have been optioned.

Linwood studied English Literature at Trent University. He was fortunate to have some very fine mentors; in particular, the celebrated Canadian author Margaret Laurence, whom Linwood first met while she was served as writer-in-residence at Trent, and Kenneth Millar, who, under the name Ross Macdonald, wrote the acclaimed series of mystery novels featuring the private eye Lew Archer.

It was at Trent where he met his wife Neetha. They have been married more than thirty years, and have two children, Spencer and Paige.

Recensioner

Överlag en intressant och spännande komponerad historia. Fungerar bättre som avslutande del i en trilogi än på egna ben.

Både spännande och inte. Kul med en handling som utspelar sig över tre böcker men det kändes som väldigt många lösa trådar i denna boken. Men det är lättläst och en bra sommarpocket att plöja.

Spännande och intressant historia. Både bokens huvudspår samt alla bihandlingar fungerar vilket gör att jag verkligen vill fortsätta läsa böckerna i serien, även fast den bara får en trea i betyg.

An easy read page turner. The story is original but trustworthy. Not so well written but it keeps the thrill almost to the end. A little disappointing ending but worth reading.
