4.5 Witty Fast-paced and Fantastic Kcatto | 29/09/2012 | See all Kcatto's reviews (2) I love Linwood Barclay and he is definitely my favourite author. The anticipation waiting to read this was huge but it didn't disappoint. I love his characters - normal, real people not the usual drunk, damaged, depressed detectives that other crime writers portray. He uses average people with normal jobs that weird coincidences and bizarre events happen to.Each page has action, and his writing style is to the point but with such witty undertones. I loved it as much as all his other books and no other author could match up!
