Wow – Thrilling
Find You First by Linwood Barclay is an absolutely thrilling contemporary crime suspense that will have your heart racing and your mind spinning. It is a fabulous roller coaster of a read. Linwood Barclay is the master of the suspense novel.
The plotline is complex and well thought out. There are red herrings to pick up along the way as Linwood Barclay cleverly controls the directions your suspicions go until the very end. I failed once more to predict the outcome. My jaw literally dropped at the conclusion.
A quest for wealth and power lures people to do despicable acts. The reader witnesses the lows to which some will stoop. In contrast there are kind and pure hearts that look out for others and are always motivated to do the right thing.
Family is important. Family is more than mere blood ties. Family is pure hearts connecting with love.
The characters were well drawn and realistic, eliciting a variety of emotional responses from the reader. Some were unbelievably despicable. Others evoked a feeling of kindness as good hearts were glimpsed.
Find You First was a truly thrilling read. I read with my heart in my mouth as I was propelled towards the end. It was really marvellous.
I would like to leave you with my favourite quote that really impacted me:
“They’ve all got stories. You think they’re these old people sitting around waiting to die, but they’ve done things.”
I received this book for free. A favourable review was not required and all views expressed are my own.
