    No Time for Goodbye by Linwood Barclay (amyblue)
    amyblue: Similar cold case family mystery and "every day joe" main characters. Both are great "suburban thrillers."

Yep. You're next. A really good page turning read from cover to cover. Recomended by Harlan Coben, , , , he should know! ( )

This is an ok book. Its a bit like a Harlen Coben or a Linwood Barclay thriller.
The main character is Mike Wingate a builder and family man.
He is being threatened by some dodgy characters, he comes home to find his wife injured he has to get himself and his daughter away he calls on his old step brother Shepard to assist him. Mike goes on the run from the Police and the bad guys sometimes the Police are working with the bad guys.
Mike is unaware why he is being hunted he then to his complete surprise finds out he is a quarter Indian and the bad guys want to kill him and his daughter so they can keep all the money a casino operating on an old indian reservation ground for themselves.
Mike with the help of Shepard kill the baddies and receives the money from the casino. More importantly he is able to be reunited with his wife and daughter. ( )

By far one of the best thrillers I've read in a while. You could not help but identify with Mike and Kat and their plight (didn't hurt that I have a daughter Kat's age). I want a friend like Shep. Mike fell down the rabbit hole and it just kept going deeper and deeper. And the reason everyone wanted him and his daughter dead was a brillant and unique twist; completely unseen until the author wanted you to know: just moments before he laid it out for the reader to experience in full horror. The end of the book had me wondering if I was happy for having experienced it or just sad that it was ending. ( )

This review was written for LibraryThing Early Reviewers.
I thought this was one of Hurwitz's better novels. Good pacing, tight story, believable plot. Creepy antagonists, murder, mayhem, it's got it all. ( )

The article that Robert Crais did for BN.com where he spotlighted 7 authors was how I found "You're Next". I finished it last night and it is definitely up there as one of the best books I've read in a long time. Had me hooked from page 1 and I could not put it down. I fell in love with the characters (even Shep) and from the start knew right away how much Michael loved his family. ( )

To Rosie, for introducing me to my adult self.
And to Natalie, for making it all make sense.
First words
The four-year-old boy stirs in the backseat of the station wagon, his body little more than a bump beneath the blanket draped over him, his hip sore where the seat belt's buckle presses into it.

Book description
'I know you, don't I?' Five words - that's all it takes to plunge Mike Wingate and his family into mortal danger. Mike doesn't recognise the crippled stranger who approaches him at a party ...but the stranger seems to know all about him. What has Mike done? Do they have the wrong man? Overnight, the threats become attacks, and Mike, his wife, and their young daughter learn they aren't safe anywhere -especially not their own home. He doesn't know who they are. He doesn't know what they want. But there's no time to figure it out - because his enemies have killed before, and he's next.
