"It's been two months since private investigator Cal Weaver's teenage son Scott died in a tragic accident. Ever since, he and his wife have drifted apart, fracturing a once-normal life. Cal is mired in grief, a grief he can't move past. And maybe his grief has clouded his judgment. Because driving home one night, he makes his first big mistake. A girl drenched in rain taps on his car window and asks for a ride as he sits at a stoplight. Even though he knows a fortysomething man picking up a teenage hitchhiker is a fool, he lets her in. She's the same age as Scott, and maybe she can help Cal find the dealer who sold his son the drugs that killed him. After a brief stop at a roadside diner, Cal senses that something's not right with the girl or the situation. But it's too late. He's already involved. Now Cal is drawn into a nightmare of pain and suspicion. Something is horribly wrong in the small town of Griffon in upstate New York. There are too many secrets there, too many lies and cover-ups. And Cal has decided to expose those secrets, one by one. That's his second big mistake"--… (mer)

I read this book because I just recently saw Mr. Barclay on the Morning show and I had never heard of him before. This was a well-written mystery and I was drawn to the male narrator, which I usually have a hard time with in a mystery. The ending was shocking yet realistic. I was expecting more Canadian references since he lives in Toronto but there were not that many. ( )

I looked forward to getting back to the book whenever I could so that says something about how I liked it and how it wasn't a chore.

It's the first book I read by this author and not my normal genre. It was a simple read. It reminded me a lot of a made for TV movie that is entertaining but not very deep. There were no loose ends, all questions answered. It did keep me guessing because whenever I thought I knew what was coming, I was wrong.

I didn't find it to be much of a thriller or very suspenseful but more of a mystery.

It was a fun read and I will probably check out something else by this author. ( )

Linwood Barclay does it again, I love his books. ( )

True to the Barclay way, this book had many twists and turns. To properly review it would be to give too much away. Just know you should read it. I swear you'll get swept up in the mystery of it all. ( )
