I had a chance to read this as an ARC. I had never read anything by Linwood Barclay before, but the blurb was interesting, and I love a good mystery. I enjoyed the story although, for a bit with so many characters and their points of view, I did get a bit lost. Once everyone was in play, I wanted to get to the end to see how it all turned out. There are basically two stories in this book, one that gets resolved and one that has you waiting for the next book. With the main story, I did figure out some of what was going on early enough but not to the extent that it turned out to be. I do recommend this book but be prepared for some unresolved storylines.
