Publisher's Summary

From New York Times and number one international best-selling author Linwood Barclay comes a new, stand-alone blockbuster thriller that spins off from the events of the explosive Promise Falls trilogy.
If you made a mistake that took someone's life, you'd remember it...wouldn't you?
After a tragedy rocks the community of Promise Falls, Cal Weaver is asked to investigate the threats being made to the accused's family. He's heard all about it on the news: the young man who drank too much, stole a Porsche, and killed a girl, and who claimed afterward not to remember a single thing. The whole town is outraged that he got off lightly, but for reasons Cal can't explain, he accepts the job. Then Cal finds himself caught up in a vicious revenge plot, chasing someone set on delivering retribution. In Cal's experience, it's only ever a matter of time before threats turn into action....
A gripping thriller packed with scandal, from the master of the twist you never saw coming.

Critic Reviews

"A tough-minded crime novel about the dangers of vigilantism.... Real crimes, unspeakably nasty ones, including murder, figure in this well-built novel." ( The New York Times Book Review)
"Fans know to expect a twist from Linwood Barclay and they get more than one here. Those of us hooked on [Promise Falls] can hope that trilogy or no, Cal and the town make another appearance at some point." ( The Globe and Mail)
"Billed as a stand-alone spinoff of Barclay's Promise Falls trilogy, the new book has a stripped-down, tautly focused quality.... Barclay's latest small-town thriller is one of his best." ( Kirkus Reviews)

Linwood Barclay has done it yet again. His masterfully crafted story is absolutely superb. Another master of the hook and twist genre. I highly recommend ANY of his books.

Barclay Does NOT Disappoint 5-Stars!

Linwood Barclay’s New book “Parting Shot” is a gripping suspense thriller, totally packed with scandal, intrigue, mystery, history, and a twist you will not see coming! I couldn't stop listening. Barclay is my favorite author, I can’t say enough about his writing, character development and storylines. Barclay never disappoints and in Parting Shot he’s once again show us why he is the master at what he does. I highly recommend!!!!!
