New York Times bestselling author Linwood Barclay delivers an electrifying novel of
suspense in which a family’s troubled past is about to return in more ways than
one—and this time, they may not be able to escape.
Seven years ago, Terry
Archer and his family, who first
appeared in No Time for Goodbye,
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. Download and start listening now!
