The protagonist this time is a building contractor whose wife died suddenly in what seems to be an accident and leaving him with an eight-year-old daughter, a disapproving mother-in-law, an overly amorous widow of a neighbor and a multi-million-dollar lawsuit, and that’s just for starters!
To reveal more is to deny you to pleasure of reading the book yourself. So I won’t go into further details; suffice it for me to say that this is a relevant book in the wake of the coming recession and is a great argument for people feeling the pinch in their wallets to avoid illicit trafficking in knock-off medicines, handbags, and construction materials. The message contained therein is relevant even to those who download and watch “free” movies online.
Do yourself a favor, read the book!
Trust me, you won’t regret it.
Linwood Barclay is a master story teller – a name to look out for.
Step aside, James Patterson!
I’ve always maintained that to say that a book is “un-putdown-able” is nothing but marketing hyperbole and a cliché, but with Linwood Barclay’s books – especially this one – it is truly difficult to put them down; I was more than willing to sacrifice precious sleep just to finish The Accident.
What a ride!
Mr Barclay, please write more and please write more often!
