I have loved everything I have read by Linwood Barclay so far. This book got me hooked right from the start. I loved the way the book started in 1983 and then went into the present. This gave us the back story from Cynthia’s point of view about what happened that night.
No time for goodbye is written from Cynthia’s husband’s perspective. At times this can be annoying as I Cynthia comes across as the main character as it is her family that disappeared. However reading the story from her husband’s point of view we get to see in depth the problems he encounters and we go along on his journey as he works out what happened 25 years ago.
Throughout this book though there seemed to be a few thriller novel clichés and I was able to work out what had happened pretty quickly. With this authors books he tends to have lots of twists and turns throughout the novel however I felt that the ending fell a bit flat, it didn’t really add much to the overall story. There is a second novel coming out based on these characters so I hope that maybe the story follows on.
