No Time For Goodbye
And that was one of the problems I had with No Time for Goodbye. He delved right into the action in that book which was excitingbut I felt that as a result, we didn't get to know and care for the characters as much as we should have. That problem is nonexistent here - Barclay is hitting us with not only an amazing, fast-paced thriller, but characters that we already know intimately. When Cynthia was 14, she woke up one morning to find her mom, dad, and older brother missing.
The beds weren't slept in. No note was left. Her whole family just vanished without a trace.Book Trailer for No Time for Goodbye by Linwood Barclay
The book takes place 30 years later, and deals with how Cynthia is seriously fucked-up because of this, and how overprotective she is of her daughter - and it's a thriller because people are getting murdered and the truth of what happened to Cynthia's family is finally coming to light.
In this book, the sequel, it's 6 years later.
No Time for Goodbye by Linwood Barclay | Book and Movie Reviews
I'd hoped that after what happened in Book 1, Cynthia would ease up on how intensely overprotective she is of her now year-old daughter, Grace. But nothing has gotten better. In this book, Grace is deliberately acting out - smoking, parking with older, good-for-nothing boys, and getting into all sorts of shenanigans - because her mom is suffocatingly overprotective. There were medications she could take, of course. But she didn't like how they made her feel, and really, wasn't it a good thing to always be on guard?
To be ready for whatever bad thing that might come along? You couldn't allow yourself to be lulled into a false sense of security, right? Except it was no way to live.

Cynthia feels terrible about what happened and realizes she's out of control. So she decides to move out and live in her own apartment for a while. Then add drug and gun smuggling, lots of murder, kidnapping, and tax fraud to what this family is already going through, and you've got this doozy of a thriller that really starts fast and keeps going at a breakneck speed.
I like Barclay's writing. It's not beautiful, but it's good for a thriller. Grace sometimes thought her mother had her so convinced something awful would happen to her that she just wanted to get it over with.
