From New York Times and #1 international bestselling author Linwood Barclay comes a new, standalone blockbuster thriller that spins off from the events of the explosive Promise Falls trilogy.
If you made a mistake that took someone's life, you'd remember it . . . wouldn't you?
After a tragedy rocks the community of Promise Falls, Cal Weaver is asked to investigate the threats being made to the accused's family. He's heard all about it on the news: the young man who drank too much, stole a Porsche and killed a girl, and who claimed afterwards not to remember a single thing. The whole town is outraged that he got off lightly, but for reasons Cal can't explain, he accepts the job. Then Cal finds himself caught up in a vicious revenge plot, chasing someone set on delivering retribution. In Cal's experience, it's only ever a matter of time before threats turn into action. . . .
A gripping thriller packed with scandal, from the master of the twist you never saw coming.

Once again,Linwood Barclay has written a thriller so engrossing, that I couldn’t wait to get home from work to read the next part and stayed up late, trying to finish it. This book, like his others, could be made into a movie or perhaps a TV series. Can’t wait to get started on the next book.
The best (so far) of the Promise Falls Series.
Really enjoyed reading this book. I have read all of the “Promise Falls” books and this one in my opinion was the best. I duly expect that another will be forthcoming.
