(132)The Accident by Linwood Barclay

The Accident

Publication Date:August 9, 2011
400 pages

If you have never read Linwood Barclay before I urge you to run out and pick one up at the bookstore. Mr. Barclay has a way of taking normal, ordinary citizens and putting them in extraordinary circumstances.

The Accident is the story of the Garber's. They are your normal American family. Glen runs a small construction company that has fallen on hard times. His wife, Sheila is feeling the pressure to help out with the family finances and may have gotten herself into some baaaad stuff. But it is up to Glen to find out the truth as Sheila did not survive the accident that she caused and killed two members of another family. Will he be able to find out the truth before his young daughter becomes the next victim of "An Accident".

I absolutely love the way Linwood Barclay tells a story. He sucks you into his world and makes you feel as if his stories could be taking place in your very own suburban neighborhood. He continues his winning streak with The Accident. The twists and turns are so unexpected yet not so far-fetched that it seems unrealistic. Y'all know that I love thrillers, but Linwood Barclay is quickly solidifying his place as one of the best authors out there.


Why I Read...

I remember the carefree summer days when I used to ride my bike to the public library to pick out new books. I would go almost daily to find books to read. I read to learn. I read to explore the world. I read to escape. I read because not reading is not an option.
