    You're Next de Gregg Hurwitz (amyblue)
    amyblue: Similar cold case family mystery and "every day joe" main characters. Both are great "suburban thrillers."

Easy made-for-tv or beach read book. The details won't stay with me long term. Wouldn't re-read.

The father had two families, and his first wife killed a part of the other family. Only a girl survived. ( )

A warm summer Saturday. An amusement park. David Harwood is glad to be spending some quality time with his wife and their four-year-old son. But what begins as a pleasant family outing turns into a nightmare after an inexplicable disappearance. A frantic search only leads to an even more shocking and harrowing turn of events. Until this terrifying moment, David Harwood is just a small-town reporter in need of a break. Now the only thing he cares about is restoring his family. Desperate for any clue, David dives into his own investigation—and into a web of lies and deceit. For with every new piece of evidence he uncovers, David finds more questions—and moves ever closer to a shattering truth.

The story begins with 14-year old Cynthia Bigge waking up one morning to find an empty house. She avoids her parents because she was hauled home late last night by her father, when he found her drunk in a car with her boyfriend. When she returns home from school she realizes that her parents and brother have disappeared without either trace or explanation. A quarter of a century later, she is now Cynthia Archer, married to a kind and gentle teacher, with a young daughter of her own, and still carrying the deep scars of still-mysterious past.

She has no idea if her family is dead or left her on her own on purpose. Cynthia is paranoid and neurotic and traps her family in her own past with her inability to move on sufficiently for them to develop their own lives. It causes friction in her marriage and frustrates her 8-year-old daughter. Strange things start happening that make her wonder what happened all of those years ago. The story deals with how Cynthia and her family try to figure out the mystery of her family 19s disappearance. Things are ratcheted up when Terry and Cynthia hire a private investigator, whose questions spark a pair of horrendous occurrences that in turn bring the events that began over a quarter century before to a shocking conclusion.

The story was a little slower than I expected it to be but that was probably reasonable because the reader needs to really feel Cynthia's paranoia. I didn't think it was an easily solved mystery either. I really liked Barclay 19s style and will definitely pick up some of his other books. If you enjoy suspenseful books with big twists this is probably a book you would enjoy. Believe me, just when you think you 19ve figured it all out, there comes another twist and you 19ll be just as clueless as I was when I read it. ( )

This is the first I've ever encountered Linwood Barclay. I love finding new authors who can tell a good story and tell it well. This is a very good story, told very well. ( )

A quick read by a good author. I like his readable style, his complete but not overly complex characters and the easy pacing of his stories. As I read along, there are no bumps in the narrative or dialog - everything seems to flow so effortlessly and the dialog is not tortured or odd, just natural and feels real. To me, that makes a book (especially one in such a saturated genre) enjoyable.

Even though I sometimes got a bit tired of Cynthia's oh-woe-is-me attitude and angst, the plot built suspense nicely. I like that the story is resolved by a "real" guy, not some super ex-military miracle worker (Reacher), or super sleuth....just a guy bumbling along trying to figure out what's going on with/to his wife and family.

Didn't fit a category for my 2015 reading challenge, but I thoroughly enjoyed it! Recommend if you enjoy thrillers (no graphic violence) ( )

Barclay's approach is to busy the narrative with detail, smart angles and anything else that qualifies as devious. At this, he misses none of the tricks. He converts what at first might pass for red herrings into events crucial to the story, and he reconfigures characters that appear to be cheering on the Archer family from the sidelines into people with less benign agendas. Barclay rarely allows the reader to get comfortable, and in the process..he has written his most involving crime novel so far
