Never Look Away

A wife’s disappearance and a childhood tragedy are linked across the years in No. 1 bestseller Linwood Barclay’s gripping thriller

It starts with a trip to a local amusement park. David Harwood is hoping a carefree day will help dispel his wife Jan’s recent depression that has led to frightening thoughts of suicide. Instead, a day of fun with their son Ethan turns into a nightmare.

When Jan disappears from the park, David’s worst fears seem to have come true. But when he goes to the police to report her missing, the facts start to indicate something very different. The park’s records show that only two tickets were purchased, and CCTV shows no evidence that Jan ever entered the park at all. Suddenly David’s story starts to look suspicious – and the police to wonder if Jan’s already dead, murdered by her husband.

To prove his innocence and keep his son from being taken away from him, David is going to have to dig deep into the past and come face to face with a terrible childhood tragedy – but by doing that, he could risk destroying everything precious to him . . .

Expect the unexpected in this compelling, unputdownable best-seller.
TELEGRAPH & ARGUS
Author Linwood Barclay just gets better ... Tense and exciting
Kati Nicholl, DAILY EXPRESS
More wriggles and twists than a bag full of snakes ... mind-blowingly good
Alex Gordon, EVENING TELEGRAPH
Where has Linwood Barclay been all my life? His is the best thriller I've read in five years. Once I was 30 pages in, I literally couldn't put it down. The writing is crisp; the twists are jolting and completely unexpected. Think 'Rebecca' and you'll be in the right neighborhood.
STEPHEN KING, ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY
`This has to be one of the most engrossing thrillers of the year ... the reader is swept up into the twisted plotting and held in total suspense until the final denouement.'
Carla McKay, DAILY MAIL
another instalment of literary crime fiction so gripping it reads like a dirty airport thriller. Indeed, Barclay's latest is being hailed as his best - which is no small feat for the much-acclaimed author of No Time for Goodbye and Too Close to Home. ... A chilling triumph and a must-read.
