From the Publisher
#1 international bestselling author Linwood Barclay delivers a sequel to No Time for Goodbye--an electrifying novel of suspense in which a family''s troubled past is about to return in more ways than one. And this time, they may not be able to escape. . .
Seven years ago, Terry Archer and his family experienced a horrific ordeal that nearly cost them their lives. Today, the echoes of that night are still haunting them. Terry''s wife, Cynthia, is living separate from her husband and daughter after her own personal demons threatened to permanently ruin her relationship with them. Their daughter, Grace, is rebelling against her parents'' needless overprotection. Terry is just trying to keep his family together. And the entire town is reeling from the senseless murder of a local retired couple.
But when Grace follows her delinquent boyfriend into a strange house, the Archers must do more than stay together. They must stay alive. Because now they have all been unwillingly drawn into the shadowy depths of their idyllic hometown. There, they will be reconnected with the man who saved their lives seven years ago, but who remains a ruthless, unrepentant criminal. The Archers will learn that there are some things people value much more than money, and some people who will do anything to get it.
Caught in a labyrinth between family loyalty and ultimate betrayal, Terry must find a way to extricate his family from a lethal situation. All he knows is that survival might mean doing the unthinkable. . .

#1 National Bestseller “ No Safe House is Barclay’s most ambitious work to date, full of plot twists and turns, grim humor, rough nobility and dark redemption. . . . Wondrously done.” — Book Reporter “This is a welcome return to the Archer family. A compulsively readable thriller. . . . Another hit for Barclay.” — Library Journal “Barclay takes the didn''t-see-it-coming twist (of which he is master) to cosmic levels here and has the reader open-mouthed at his ingenuity throughout. His protagonists have depth and complexity and he is even prepared to tackle what is something of a rarity in the crime genre—forcing his readers to change their minds about characters safely consigned to the moral outer darkness.” — Financial Times (UK) “The follow-up to the smash hit No Time For Goodbye revisits the Archer family, who are unwittingly drawn into a web of violent crime. Brilliantly plotted, with witty dialogue that crackles in the best hard-boiled tradition, you’ll race through this fast-paced and brilliantly twisty thriller.” — Sunday Mirror (UK) “Few authors can match Barclay''s ability to conjure constantly surprising thrillers and set them against a backdrop of normal suburban life where everyday events and objects are imbued with a sense of menace. . . . Gripping and very suspenseful, this one will keep you frantically reading until the final unexpected twist.” &m
