Publisher's Summary

A warm summer Saturday. An amusement park. David Harwood is glad to be spending some quality time with his wife, Jan, and their four-year-old son. But what begins as a pleasant family outing turns into a nightmare after an inexplicable disappearance. A frantic search only leads to an even more shocking and harrowing turn of events.
Until this terrifying moment, David Harwood is just a small-town reporter in need of a break. Then he gets a lead that just might be the answer to his prayers: a potential scandal involving a controversial development project for the outskirts of this picturesque upstate New York town. It’s a hot-button issue, but strangely, David’s editors keep shooting it down. Why?
That's a question no longer at the top of David’s list. Now the only thing he cares about is restoring his family. Desperate for any clue, David dives into his own investigation—and into a web of lies and deceit. For with every new piece of evidence he uncovers, David finds more questions—and moves ever closer to a shattering truth.

Not bad but not his best

Any additional comments?

I recently have been listening to all of Linwood Barclay's books on Audible. I have loved all of them - except this one. I liked it a lot. It was a decent mystery but it didn't keep me as gripped as the rest of his books. All in all enjoyable. If you like mysteries and haven't listened to Barclay yet, definitely put his books in your library. I especially liked that they aren't all the same detective, characters, etc. You can start with any of them and finish with any of them.

Great suspense novel with intertwined plots...

Overall, a well-developed story which keeps you engaged and wanting more. However, the ending is anticlimactic and not quite believable. It feels like the author was in a rush to the finish line and could not develop a suitable plot twist; instead, taking a poorly chosen shortcut.

Great narration and well defined character voices.

With all of that said...It is a good audio book; definitely worth the money and time.
