Another interesting thriller from Linwood Barclay. This time there are so many murders, I wondered which ones I should focus on. Barclay does a great job of managing the information critical to the reader, and gives us good depth of character for the principal players.

I'm always awaiting another Linwood Barclay novel. ( )

There is nothing better than a Linwood Barclay novel to keep you glued to your seat and turning pages well into the night. "Too Close to Home" is a stunning piece of writing; a thriller of the best kind. Barclay has this way of keeping you guessing right to the last page. Loved every bit of it! ( )

A thriller by Canadian author. The setting is upstate New York town of Promise Falls where the entire next door family is murdered. Did the murderer get the wrong house, is there a secret someone is trying to protect? Soon the Cutter family is not only next door but under suspicion. This is also a good story of family relationships. ( )

Promise Falls, NY isn't the kind of community where a family is shot to death in their own home. But it is exactly what happened to the Langleys one sweltering summer night, and no one in this small upstate NEW York town is more shocked than their next-door neighbors, Jim and Ellen Cutter. Thet visited for the occasional barbecue, and their son, Derek, was friends with the Langley boy, Adam; but how well did they really know their neighbors. Brett Stockwell a young high school boy wrote a novel the was published under the name of Conard Chase, the President of Thackeray College, which was his only best selling novel "A Missing Part." ( )

This book follows last year's acclaimed No Time for Goodbye..This also has some unexpected twists and turns, not to mention some very good red herrings, but while I was kept guessing right to the end, the surprise finale was unconvincing.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 055359043X, Mass Market Paperback)



Critically acclaimed and bestselling author Linwood Barclay brings terror closer than ever before in a stunning thriller in which murder strikes in the place we should feel safest of all….

In a quiet neighborhood, in the house next door, a family is brutally murdered for no apparent reason. You can’t help thinking, It could have been us. And you start to wonder: What if we’re next?

Promise Falls isn’t the kind of community where families are shot to death in their own homes. But how well did Jim and Ellen Cutter really know their neighbors—or the darker secrets of their small town? They don’t have to look further than their own marriage to know that things aren’t always what they seem. Now the Cutters and their son, Derek, must face the unthinkable: that a murderer isn’t just stalking too close to home…but is inside it already.
