(85) Fear The Worst by Linwood Barclay

October is Mystery Month!

Fear The Worst is the perfect mystery novel to read on a cold, rainy October night. It is not a gruesome murder mystery. But instead, the book is about your normal, average 40-ish year old car salesman living and working in the Connecticut suburbs. Tim Blake is excited to have his seventeen year old daughter staying with him for the summer. Until one day she doesn't come home from work.

Tim & his ex-wife, Susanne, have their world turned upside down. A month has passed with no leads & no Sydney. Tim feels as if he is just spinning his wheels. Until the website set up for Sydney gets a hit. And it sends Tim on a cross country wild goose chase to find his daughter.

There is not much that I can say without giving away the ever evolving plot. It is fast paced & thrilling. Without being confusing, if that makes sense. Tim Blake is a likable guy, he is the kind of guy you would want for an "ex". He is smart, without being unrealistic. He is a man on a mission. Nothing will stop him. Just proof that when a man's family is threatened, he can turn into the the SuperHero that every little girl thinks her Daddy is under the Dockers & button-down shirts.

Great book. Wonderful mystery. You will enjoy this thrilling mystery!

Sounds right up my alley. Must check it out. No pun intended....

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.
