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.

    Like mainly mystery and suspense with a bit of chick lit and non-fiction thrown in. Severe addiction going on 10 years to Audiobooks.

    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.

    "Predictable, but entertaining"
    Would you listen to Never Look Away again? Why?

    Nope.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The hero of the story was well drawn, and believable, even though the story line required listeners to suspend their belief once in a while. Having your wife set you up to take the fall for her murder is a bit fanciful, but the reader does a good job portraying what it would be like.


    What three words best describe Jeffrey Cummings’s performance?

    Balanced and belivable.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    Not a bad book, we actually were looking for another book with a similar title, but ended up downloading this one. The weakest character was the hero's wife, but that may have been due to the book, not so much the reader. Some of the supporting characters such as the detective and the crooked prison boss were very well acted and entertaining. Worth the time and overall enjoyable.
