My rating: 4.5 Stars
My opinion: I think one of the reviewers nailed it when he compared it to a modern version of Hitchcock's famous film REAR WINDOW. As usual, I loved Barclay's build-up and the unique storyline that this book had compared to other books of his..
I must admit that I am a huge Linwood Barclay fan...have been since I read the first book I had picked up by him. Although it did take me a little bit more time to get into this one, once I did, I couldn't put it down. This book has the typical characteristics of dynamic, engrossing storyline and multidimensional characters.
Would I recommend? : Yes
