Never Look Away: A Thriller by Linwood Barclay
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Once again Stephen King has recommended a great thriller and I wonder along with him about how we missed this author. Linwood Barclay has seven other titles listed in the front of his current book. The cover even touts him as "#1 Internationally Bestselling Author. . ." (and some other stuff that the library barcode covers up). When I checked him out, I discovered that he lives in Canada and has worked as a columnist for the Toronto Star.
David Harwood is a small town reporter working for a struggling newspaper. On this fateful day, he and his wife Jan and their four year old son head for the local amusement park for a day of fun when the unthinkable happens and his life begins to unravel around him.
There are so many twists and turns in the story that it will keep you turning pages to the end.
He has a new title coming out in 2011 and I will be busy reading some of his backlist until then!
