Having read "No Time for Goodbye" Barclay's first published work, it was hard to expect an excellent book again from this author. However, with as many suprises and an excellent ending, this is again another book you won't be able to put down!

  another winning performance

Very good read. I guessed the outcome early on but still wasnt 100 per cent sure as Linwood Barclay has a way in tricking the reader and keep the suspense going. Not as good as first book but cant wait until readinfg "fear the worst".

  A must read

After reading No Time For Goodbye didn't think this book would be as good....but think it is even better! Linwood Barclay just grips you from the beginning, the way he leaves you guessing at the end of each chapter, meaning you just have to turn the pages to the next is excellent. Have just bought Never Look Away and as ever can't put it down! What an author - thank you!

  Gripping!

The quickest I've read a book for a long time, I found myself constantly wanting to read just one more chapter before I put it down. I found myself still guessing until pretty much the end.

I bought this book for my holidays last week, having read his first thriller (No Time for Goodbye) I thought why not?!

I have to say its every bit as good as his first book - in fact its better. I really could not put this book down, great storyline, great twists and turns.

Have just bought his other book which am reading now and hope its as good as this!

  Superb

I believe that this novel is a lot better than No Time For Goodbye, the language used and the way the story pans out is just enjoyable in all aspects for me, impressive work this time around and it's a gripping read.

  Excellent

Once i picked up the book I couldn't put it down,lots of twists and turns, but i worked out the connection earlier in the book and also the Culprit, won't mention who or what as not to spoil it for others, but I thoroughly enjoyed the story slowly unfolding but as mentioned knowing what was going to be the outcome i was waiting for the crux of the story to appear, and when it did I found myself hurrying to read on and see what happens. There are actually 4 different stories happening and they all get tied up neatly at the end. I thought his first book was better, but heres to his next one.
