A Tap on the Window

A Tap on the Window

On a rainy night, a man gives a teenage girl a lift home, but the girl he picks up isn’t the same one he drops off . . . Bestseller Linwood Barclay hooks the reader from page one with this suspense masterpiece

When Cal Weaver stops at a red light on a rainy night while driving home, he ignores the bedraggled-looking teenage girl trying to hitch a ride – even when she starts tapping on his window. But when he realises she’s one of his son’s classmates, he knows he can’t really leave her, alone, on the street.

But nothing prepares him for the consequences of trying to help her out. The next morning he’s gone from Good Samaritan to Murder Suspect, and with one girl dead and another missing, he’s suddenly at the centre of a deadly puzzle that reaches right to the heart of the town – from its bullying police force to its strangely furtive mayor – and finally to one family’s shocking secret.

[A] killer of a thriller
NEW YORK TIMES
Sure-fire and highly adroit storytellers as Barclay, whose speciality is to take ordinary people and to gradually dismantle all the meaningful elements in their lives ... This is Barclay firing on all cylinders
FINANCIAL TIMES
Barclay is excellent at showing how ordinary people doing good deeds can get into terrible trouble
