Too Close to Home | [Linwood Barclay]

Too Close to Home

When the Cutter family's next-door-neighbours, the Langleys, are gunned down in their house one hot August night, the Cutters' world is turned upside down. That violent death should have come so close to them is shocking enough in suburban Promise Falls, but at least the Cutters can console themselves with the thought that lightning is unlikely to strike twice in the same place. Unless, of course, the killers went to the wrong house.

Publisher's Summary

When the Cutter family's next-door-neighbours, the Langleys, are gunned down in their house one hot August night, the Cutters' world is turned upside down. That violent death should have come so close to them is shocking enough in suburban Promise Falls, but at least the Cutters can console themselves with the thought that lightning is unlikely to strike twice in the same place. Unless, of course, the killers went to the wrong house...

To find out who killed the Langleys and why, everybody's secrets are going to have to come out. But the final secret - the secret that could save them or destroy them - is in the one place nobody would ever think of looking...

    "Really enjoyed this audiobook"

    This was Linwood Barclays second book and i found it as good as the first. If you enjoyed too late for goodbye you should enjoy this story. Hard to put down once you start, plot kept me interested and guessing until the end.

    "A riveting listen"

    I enjoyed this author's other book 'Fear the Worst' but thought this one an even more riveting story. From the very first chapter I was gripped and wanted to know what happened next. As with most thrillers you have to suspend belief a bit as one awful event follows another: life isn't usually as eventful as that of the Cutter family whose life is turned upside down when their neighbours are gunned down.
    I thought the reader did a good job.

    "Good follow up book."

    I read the first book in paperback, but got the audiobook (unabridged) for Too Close to Home. Initially I was a bit unsure of the narrator, but very soon I got into the book and was gripped. Ive just put his new book on my wishlist!

    What did you like most about Too Close to Home?

    This is my 2nd Linwood Barclay book and I'm downloading my 3rd right now.This was again original, thrilling, kept me interested from start to finish and the main character was very believable.The narration was excellent.I listen to my books in the car and found that I didn't want to get out of the car so I could keep listening.

    "Too Close To Home = Amazing and Exciting"
    Would you listen to Too Close to Home again? Why?

    I am a fan of Lynwood Barclay, I have never had a bad book by him. He keeps you guessing right up to the end.

    An ordinary family have a tragic murder next door. They then realise that it was all a mistake and the murders were at the wrong house.

    The family are in danger and realise this but they still investigate.

    Its very fast paced and plenty other storys come together.

    You also realise that they are oridnary people but have secrets of there own.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favorite character was the killer because you wont guess who he or she is and I won't spoil it.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    I can't pick a favorite scene as it was all so good.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Murder Who?


    Any additional comments?

    Give this book a try if you love thrillers but its quite scarey to listen to at night

    "Not bad.."

    For some reason I just didn't get into this one the same way I have with all other Linwood Barclay books, and it is difficult to pick out the specific reason. I am not saying that this is a bad read in any way, in my view it is just not up to Linwood's usual exceptional standards.
