The Twenty-Three

(Promise Falls Trilogy Book 3)

By Linwood Barclay

  • Paperback
  • £7.99

The third spellbinding thriller set in the troubled town of Promise Falls


BOOK 3 OF 3

The final book in the Promise Falls trilogy, The Twenty-Three is a pulse-pounding, race-against-time thriller.

The day begins like any other Saturday - a shower, coffee, breakfast. But suddenly, all hell breaks loose in the town of Promise Falls. People are dying in the street - the hospital and emergency services are overwhelmed by sheer numbers. Is it mass food poisoning, a virus, or something more sinister? Has someone, rather than something, caused this?

Detective Barry Duckworth is already investigating two murders and an explosion at the town's drive-in. He starts to wonder if these crimes and the new attacks are connected to the mysterious incidents in Promise Falls involving the number twenty-three.

But who is sending these deadly messages, and how can they be stopped?

Final Assignment

Linwood Barclay
Authors:
Linwood Barclay

For ex-cop turned private investigator Cal Weaver, this was not exactly the biggest case of his career; in fact, he only took it on because Greta Carlson was a friend of a friend. Greta's sixteen-year-old son Chandler was in trouble at school because of a short story he'd written. Admittedly the story featured a boy bludgeoning his best friend to death with a baseball bat because of an argument over a girl. But still, a story? Mrs Carlson wanted Cal to dig up some dirt on the high school principal she could use as leverage to get Chandler reinstated, and Cal told her in no uncertain terms that he wasn't going to go down that road. But that wasn't quite the end of the story. Chandler's best friend Mike seems to be missing, and at the same time Cal can't shake the feeling that Chandler may have had some help in completing his writing assignment. Life, it seems, may have imitated art after all, but figuring out who's the author and who are just characters in the drama will take all of Cal's critical skills to determine.
