Publisher's Summary

New York Times and number-one international best-selling author Linwood Barclay delivers the second spine-chilling thriller set in the troubled town of Promise Falls, following the electrifying cliffhanger ending of Broken Promise....
After the screen of a run-down drive-in movie theater collapses and kills four people, the daughter of one of the victims asks private investigator Cal Weaver to look into a recent break-in at her father's house. Cal discovers a hidden basement room where it's clear that salacious activities have taken place - as well as evidence of missing DVDs. But his investigation soon becomes more complicated when he realizes it may not be discs the thief was actually interested in....
Meanwhile, Detective Barry Duckworth is still trying to solve two murders - one of which is three years old - he believes are connected, since each featured a similar distinctive wound. As the lies begin to unravel, Cal is headed straight into the heart of a dark secret as his search uncovers more startling truths about Promise Falls. And when yet another murder happens, Cal and Barry are both driven to pursue their investigations, no matter where they lead. Evil deeds long thought buried are about to haunt the residents of this town - as the sins of the past and present collide with terrifying results.

I would have given it a 5 , but.....

This was a 5 star listen for me right up to the last few words......and then it ended with no resolution to any but one "minor" murder. It's a complex story with a LOT of storylines and I like that but I do expect the story to tie it together at the end. I have not read the first in the series so I will now go back and read that one. I understand now that it also leaves you hanging. I'm not sure I like this style at all......I have a hard enough time remembering what I read last week, let alone a year or more later.

Be prepared to be left hanging

I was an hour and a half into the book and felt I was missing something. I reread the summary which said it was 2nd book in the series after reading the reviews of Broken Promises that complained of the abrupt cliffhanger I bought that and read it first. I am glad I did and would recommend anyone reading this read it first. It will be easier to understand it more. Both books take place over a short span of time. This picks up where first one leaves off. Each book resolves one mystery but continues the main mystery started in the first and ends abruptly. You are left with feeling what did I do forgot to download the rest of the book. The story line is interesting and you begin to feel you know some of the characters well but I wish I knew it will be months to a year before I know what happens to them next. This is a trilogy at the very least how long before the primary mystery is solved is anyone's guess. I am hoping that it is wrapped up in the next one but there is enough going on to keep us guessing through a few more. Good book but expect a big WHAT THE at the end.
