Publisher Description

“If you like Harlan Coben, you’ll love Linwood Barclay.” —Peter Robinson, author of Bad Boy

Glen Garber, a contractor, has seen his business shaken by the housing crisis, and now his wife, Sheila, is taking a business course at night to increase her chances of landing a good-paying job. But she should have been home by now. With their eight-yearold daughter sleeping soundly, Glen soon finds his worst fears confirmed: Sheila and two others have been killed in a car accident. Grieving and in denial, Glen resolves to investigate the accident himself—and begins to uncover layers of lawlessness beneath the placid surface of their Connecticut suburb, secret after dangerous secret behind the closed doors. Propelled into a vortex of corruption and illegal activity, pursued by mysterious killers, and confronted by threats from neighbors he thought he knew, Glen must take his own desperate measures and go to terrifying new places in himself to avenge his wife and protect his child.

“The writing is crisp; the twists are jolting and completely unexpected.”—Stephen King, Entertainment Weekly

“Fast-paced and with an irresistible blend of suspense and tension.”—Tucson Citizen

The Accident

I just finished reading The Accident and I have to say I have never been more caught up in a story than I was in this one! I've just discovered Linwood Barclay's books and after reading A Tap on the Window could not wait to read more! My husband is a police officer and I find Barclay's writings amazing! Can't wait to read more!

The real accidents

This was riveting, but all the twists and turns, made this soooo unreal and unbelievable...so many questions unanswered. What was the connection to the counterfeit purses, drugs, housing products? Never answered!
