This is a weekly event that highlight a book we can't wait to be published. It's hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.
Have you ever read a book by Linwood Barclay? If you haven't and if you like a good suspense novel that almost always has something very unusual happening to an "ordinary" person, you might try one. I've read several of his books and enjoyed each one of them. I'm always happy to see a new one come around. My selection this week is:
Publication Date: July 28th
Then he comes across a family secret of epic proportions. A year after a devastating miscarriage, David’s cousin Marla has continued to struggle. But when David’s mother asks him to check on her, he’s horrified to discover that she’s been secretly raising a child who is not her own—a baby she claims was a gift from an “angel” left on her porch.
When the baby’s real mother is found murdered, David can’t help wanting to piece together what happened—even if it means proving his own cousin’s guilt. But as he uncovers each piece of evidence, David realizes that Marla’s mysterious child is just the tip of the iceberg.
Other strange things are happening. Animals are found ritually slaughtered. An ominous abandoned Ferris wheel seems to stand as a warning that something dark has infected Promise Falls. And someone has decided that the entire town must pay for the sins of its past…in blood.
