‘Barclay is such an old pro that you feel he can now write these terrific thrillers standing on his head. His great talent is to infuse the most everyday things with extraordinary menace’ – Daily Mail


The sequel to the Sunday Times No.1 bestseller No Time for Goodbye. Seven years ago, Terry Archer and his family experienced a horrific ordeal that nearly cost them their lives. Today, the echoes of that fateful night are still audible. Terry’s wife, Cynthia, is living alone after her own personal demons threatened to ruin her relationship with her family. Grace is rebelling against her parents’ overprotection. Terry is just trying to keep his family together. And the entire town is reeling from the murder of two elderly locals. 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 drawn into the shadowy depths of their seemingly idyllic hometown. Soon, they will be reconnected with the man who saved their lives seven years ago, and who remains a ruthless, unrepentant criminal. Caught between family loyalty and ultimate betrayal, Terry must find a way to extricate his family from a lethal situation he still doesn’t fully comprehend. All he knows is that to live, he may have to do the unthinkable. . . • No Time for Goodbye sold 800,000 copies in paperback and was on the Sunday Times bestseller list for 19 weeks.
