Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Linwood Barclay delivers an electrifying novel of suspense, in which a family’s troubled past is about to return in more ways than one. And this time, they may not be able to escape.… Seven years ago, Terry Archer and his family, who first appeared in No Time for Goodbye, experienced a horrific ordeal that nearly cost them their lives. Today, the echoes of that fateful night are still audible. Terry’s wife, Cynthia, is living separate from her husband and daughter after her own personal demons threatened to ruin her relationship with them permanently. Their daughter, Grace, is rebelling against her parents’ seemingly needless overprotection.
Terry is just trying to keep his family together. And the entire town is reeling from the senseless murder of two elderly locals. But when Grace foolishly follows her delinquent boyfriend into a strange house, the Archers must do more than stay together. They must stay alive. They have all been unwillingly drawn into the shadowy depths of their seemingly idyllic hometown. For there, they will be reconnected with the man who saved their lives seven years ago, but who still remains a ruthless, unrepentant criminal. They will encounter killers for hire working all sides. And they will learn that there are some things people value much more than money, and will do anything to get it.
Caught in a labyrinth between family loyalty and ultimate betrayal, Terry must find a way to extricate his family from a lethal situation he still doesn’t fully comprehend. All he knows is that to live, he may have to do the unthinkable.

Linwood Barclay has done it again - 5 Star Review

What made the experience of listening to No Safe House the most enjoyable?

Partly because I think this is the first sequel I've seen to any of Linwood Barclay's books and I'm familiar with the characters of a previous EXCELLENT book.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Yes and I can't say how or it might ruin it for the next listener. All I can say is if you listened to No Time For Goodbye (and really liked it) then you will Love this one. If you haven't read the previous then this is still a good stand alone.

What does Brian O'Neill and Graham Winton bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

They did a Great narrating job together. Voices complimented the other and having 2 made a distinction between opposing characters.

Any additional comments?

Very good book. I've been looking forward to Linwood Barclay writing another since his las (Tap on the Window) and this did not disappoint. I've listened to everything he's done on Audible a this one does not disappoint.

After listening to 3/4 of this audio book, I had finally gave in and ended the torture. The book started out great and I was looking forward to listening. However, I found that there was too much explanation, too much incidental and goofy filler. I kept saying to myself, "Oh, give me a break!" (I didn't need to know that so & so went stopped on the way and bought a chocolate milkshake, etc.) It was also quite choppy - too many characters with their unrelated story lines. Although I've liked other books by this author, I wouldn't recommend this one.
