Description

The gripping page-turner from the massive No. 1 bestselling author and Richard & Judy Book Club winner

The worst day of Tim Blake's life started out with him making breakfast for his seventeen-year-old daughter Sydney. Syd was staying with him while she worked a summer job - even if he wasn't entirely sure what her job at the Just Inn Time motel actually was - and Tim hoped this quality father-daughter time would somehow help her deal with his divorce. When she didn't arrive home at her usual time, he thought she'd probably gone to the mall to hang with her friends. When she didn't answer her phone he began to worry. When she didn't come home at all, he began to panic. And when the people at the motel said they had no Sydney Blake working there, and never had, he began to see his life going into freefall.

If she hadn't been working at the motel every day, what had she been doing? Something she couldn't - or wouldn't - tell her own father about? To find his daughter, Tim doesn't need to simply track her down - he needs to know who she really was, and what could have made her step out of her own life without leaving a trace.

Only one thing has him convinced the worst hasn't already happened: the fact that some very scary people seem just as eager as he is to find her. The question is, who's going to find her first?

From Publishers Weekly

29 June 2009 – In Barclay's new thriller, Tim Blake, a car salesman in a Honda dealership in Milford, Conn., has more troubles than a Yugo up for its inspection sticker: his wife has left him to shack up with a car dealer rival; he has a devil-wears-Prada style boss; and, worst, his teenage daughter, Sydney, has disappeared from her summer job at the Just Inn Time hotel. Barclay does a decent job of depicting the fright, fantasies and rage of a parent whose child faces prolonged and uncertain danger, but the narrator exists chiefly as a sketch or plot device rather than a complex, compelling individual. The author explores a timely social issue, human trafficking, but the villains behind it are even less defined than the narrator. Still, Barclay (Bad Move) earns a solid A for his page-turning plot. In short, this is a functional stripped-down Civic of a book that gets you there.

Customer Reviews

My personal favourite Linwood Barclay book

If you suffer anxiety Athens Linwood Barclay is your worst nightmare! I remember reading No Time For Goodbye, half way through I generally thought, Aliens! Aliens did it! ...there were no Aliens. I read Fear The Worst and thought, Aliens! Aliens did it! Again I was wrong.

You have GOT to read this

I could not put this book down! Its a long time since I could say that. Well written and lots of twists and turn that kept me hooked. When I finished it - I went straight to the book store to buy my next one

Wrong book!!!!

Having read the synopsis I thought, great, a Linwood Barclay book I haven't read. But when I downloaded it, the book is an old one that I had read - book & synopsis don't match. This needs to be sorted out - money spent for no reason.
