Parting Shot by Linwood Barclay

Promise Falls, Book 4

Synopsis: A gripping thriller packed with scandal in a small town, from the master of the twist you never saw coming – international bestseller, Linwood Barclay.

When a young girl from Promise Falls is killed by a drunk driver, the community wants answers.

It doesn’t matter that the accused is a kid himself: all they see is that he took a life and got an easy sentence. As pack mentality kicks in and social media outrage builds, vicious threats are made against the boy and his family.

When Cal Weaver is called in to investigate, he finds himself caught up in a cold-blooded revenge plot. Someone in the town is threatening to put right some wrongs…

And in Cal’s experience, it’s only ever a matter of time before threats turn into action.

Review: I find that the author of this series always has a lot of ideas in his novels and I must say that I was very curious to see what will be proposed here.

We’re back to Promise Fall with the characters we know. Several stories are intertwined, including the one of Brian who appears with a strange tattoo on his back without understanding what happened. But there is also the story of Jeremy, this boy accused of running over a girl and, despite the harassment he is undergoing, there might be much more to this story.

I had a great time with this novel. I have to say that I didn’t expect to find all these stories about Brian and his family or the revelations that Cal is going to find out by spending time with Jeremy.

Yes, it was a very interesting novel Promise Fall never has a moment’s rest!
