A Tap on the Window by Linwood Barclay

16072980One of my favorite authors is baaack!!! This time, it is about a troubled man who gets in a huge mess just by being a good samaritan. Even though this is a well-used plot line (person in wrong place at the wrong time), Linwood Barclay is a master at this genre.

Cal Weaver is a private investigator who has just lost his teenage son Scott to an apparent suicide. One night, obviously distraught and looking for answers, Cal is sitting at a light when there is a tap on his car window. A young girl asks for a ride. At first he is reluctant, but then the girls says she was a friend of Scott’s. Hoping that possibly she may have information regarding his son, he lets her in. And what a ride it is from then on!

As in all of his novels, not too much can be said without spoiling the book, so just know that A Tap on the Window has so many twists and turns that it will make your head spin. I could not put it down!
