New York Times and #1 international bestselling author Linwood Barclay delivers the second spine-chilling thriller in the Promise Falls trilogy.

When private investigator Cal Weaver looks into a break-in at the home of a recently deceased man, he uncovers far more than he is prepared for after he finds a hidden room that was used for salacious activities. Perhaps something illegal...

Detective Barry Duckworth is doggedly trying to solve two murders, one of which is three years old. He believes the killings are connected, since each featured a similar distinctive wound. And the key to his mystery may lie with Cal Weaver's own case.

As the lies begin to unravel, and another murder occurs, Cal and Barry find themselves headed straight into the heart of dark secrets as they uncover more startling truths about Promise Falls...

Linwood Barclay has written another great book. It's the 2nd book in his Promose Falls trilogy. The problem with trilogies is that you forget what happened in the previous book(s). I'm looking forward to the last book which is available now. Great read!

Soooooooooo riveting! Loved the characters - hated the sleezy characters so much I wanted bad things to happen to them! Linwood Barclay is such a great mystery fiction writer...can't get enough of his books...this is a trilogy...cannot wait to read the next book!

Far From True --- by --- Linwood Barclay.

For a small town in upstate New York, Pleasant Falls, the locale for Barclay`s ongoing novel, sure has its share of whackos, slime balls, and just plain murderers. There sure are a lot of murderers. For those readers who like to be a couple of pages ahead of the story this story is frustrating ``cause there`s a lot of things comin` out of left field that you just didn`t see comin`; makes for good readin` though. Now the ending, well its like someone tore a chapter out of the book. Reckon LB is just setting the stage for his next book. But pretty good and entertaining murder mystery none the less.

The trouble with trilogies is trying to remember what happened in the previous book. Once the characters were sorted out, the story continued with the many mysteries in Promise Falls. The introduction to the 3rd (and hopefully final) installment hinted that an evil individual is at play. Based on the statements made by the ex-mayor, I suspect he may have something to do with these terrible events (?)

Book #2 of the Promise Falls series turned out to be another great read by an author who I'd almost given up on. Short chapters told from various different perspectives, interesting characters, plus lots of twists and turns kept me reading this book for an entire day instead of actually getting stuff done. And because of the huge cliff hanger ending, I cannot wait until the final book of this trilogy comes out later this year.
