‘Broken Promise’ – Linwood Barclay

broken promise

David Harwood is a single parent, recently made redundant, and he is living in his home-town of Promise Falls with his parents. Things could be better. As is often the way with fiction, things are about to get a lot worse!

Without going into details, he gets caught up in the aftermath of what can only be described as a horrific murder.

I raced through this, desperate to find out if my hunch about the ‘bad guy’ was correct. It was, but I wish I’d learned more about why he’d acted as he did. The ending also felt a little open-ended for me, but given that this is part of a new series I assume this is to set up what comes next.

I was given a free digital copy of this by Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
