Book Review: No Time For Goodbye by Linwood Barclay

14 year old Cynthia wakes up one morning to find her family has vanished. No one ever finds a single clue to explain what happened to them. Did they leave? Were they murdered? 25 years later, Cynthia is married and has her own child, and the past is about to catch up with her…

Sometimes you just need to read a fast-paced, throwaway thriller, and this one fit the bill. Sure the plot is cheesy, convoluted and improbable, but it’s also edge-of-your-seat fun. I even had a little tear-up at the end. Call me a satisfied reader.

NO TIME FOR GOODBYE is out in paperback now.

I love edge-of-your-seat thrillers, they are my antidote for those days when I feel I am all burnt out and cannot read another book.
