Never Look Away | [Linwood Barclay]

Never Look Away

It starts with a trip to a local amusement park. David Harwood is hoping a carefree day at Five Mountains will help dispel his wife Jan's recent depression, black moods that have led to frightening thoughts of suicide. Instead, a day of fun with their four-year-old son Ethan turns into a nightmare. When Jan disappears from the park, David's worst fears seem to have come true. But when he goes to the police to report her missing, terrified that she's planning to take her own life, the facts start to indicate something very different.

Publisher's Summary

It starts with a trip to a local amusement park. David Harwood is hoping a carefree day at Five Mountains will help dispel his wife Jan's recent depression, black moods that have led to frightening thoughts of suicide. Instead, a day of fun with their four-year-old son Ethan turns into a nightmare.

When Jan disappears from the park, David's worst fears seem to have come true. But when he goes to the police to report her missing, terrified that she's planning to take her own life, the facts start to indicate something very different. The park's records show that only two tickets were purchased, David and Ethan's, and CCTV shows no evidence that Jan ever entered the park at all.

Suddenly, David's story starts to look suspicious - suspicious enough for the police to wonder if she's already dead, murdered by her husband. To prove his innocence and keep his son from being taken away from him, David is going to have to dig deep into the past and come face to face with a terrible childhood tragedy - but by doing that he could risk destroying everything precious to him.

    "Top thrills"

    I like thrillers that have an air of normality about them and don???t go too over the top with explosions and other silliness and Never Look Away fits that bill well. At its heart it???s a story of a family where all is not what it seems and plays on the sorts of fears that all of us might face at some time. It took me a little while to ???get into??? Jeffrey Cummings??? narration as he used a wide variety of voices and some of the ones for minor characters were a little odd-sounding. However after the first 20-30 minutes I was totally absorbed and Cummings had made the book whatever the audio equivalent is of a page turner.

    "Great entertainment"
    What made the experience of listening to Never Look Away the most enjoyable?

    Author Linwood Barclay comes up with exciting stories again and again... even though some readers dispute the similarities, I still compare them to Harlan Coben's earlier stand-alone thrillers like
