No Safe House by Linwood Barclay

No Safe HouseNo Safe House by Linwood Barclay
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Oh my word, where have I been? I can't believe this is the FIRST book I have ever read by Linwood Barclay.
I have bought some more!!!!

What a superb story teller. This is grippingly awesome.

Who killed the retired school teachers? That's what I wanted to know!

I loved how we see a couple who are laid in bed hearing loud music come yet again from a neighbors house, yet again he has to go tell them.
The wife follows out in fear for her husband, surely he won't get attacked if his wife is right behind him?

She's left the door to their house ajar though.............

And there begins the sequence of the opening events that got my mind ticking and my thoughts racing.

I just don't know where on earth I have been not reading any of his books before, this will certainly change.

I would like to thank Orion Publishing Group for allowing to read and review this book via net galley


Seven years ago, Terry Archer and his family experienced a horrific ordeal that nearly cost them their lives. Today, the echoes of that fateful night are still audible. Terry's wife, Cynthia, is living separate from her husband and daughter after her own personal demons threatened to ruin her relationship with them permanently. Their daughter, Grace, is rebelling against her parents' seemingly needless overprotection. Terry is just trying to keep his family together. And the entire town is reeling from the senseless murder of two elderly locals.

But when Grace foolishly follows her delinquent boyfriend into a strange house, the Archers must do more than stay together. They must stay alive. Because now they have all been unwillingly drawn into the shadowy depths of their seemingly idyllic hometown.

For there, they will be reconnected with the man who saved their lives seven years ago, but who still remains a ruthless, unrepentant criminal. They will encounter killers for hire working all sides. And they will learn that there are some things people value much more than money, and will do anything to get it.

Caught in a labyrinth between family loyalty and ultimate betrayal, Terry must find a way to extricate his family from a lethal situation he still doesn't fully comprehend. All he knows is that to live, he may have to do the unthinkable....
