I like his writing style and it was a good story. Just wish I'd have known it was continued in the next book. Actually just found out it is a trilogy. Hope I can find book 2 and 3 before I forget this one.

Final Assignment

This is by far the funnest book I have read in a long time. Just when I'm beginning to think that this small town can't get any weirder something crazier pops up. I have to rack my brain to remember the characters are as I begin reading each chapter and it features a character that was introduced earlier in the story. There are a lot of characters and I find them all fascinating. I'm reading the second in the trilogy and I cannot wait to get into the third. I highly recommend the Promise Falls trilogy.

One of my favorite Canadian authors. Always a great read.

I simply cannot say enough good things about this Canadian author. I love good mystery stories and I am always on the hunt for a new author to enjoy. His books are bad for me because I ignore everything for a good while and stay up too late because I just cannot stop reading. Give him a try, I think you'll enjoy his stories.

One of my favourite authors and although many of his novels are stand alone books, this start of a thrilling trilogy will keep you on the edge of your seat!

I found most of the plot twists predictable but enjoyed the book nevertheless - good story.

I always enjoy Linwood Barclay's books. A friend recommended I try reading his books and I have no regrets. I've enjoyed every one I've read and this book did not disappoint. This is a series, this book being the first. The ending was not completely wrapped up so I 'm looking forward to getting the second in this trilogy.

Broken Promise --- by --- Linwood Barclay.
I remember Barclay from his days as a columnist working for the Toronto Star. Since then he’s put over fifteen novels under his belt. And he sure can write. This story is about a really “weird” situation. An angel leaves a baby on Marla’s doorstep. There’s murder and lots of deceit in this novel. And I dare you to outhink Barclay in this plot. Definitely something to read. Fast.
