Product description


[Find You First] is not only [Barclay's] best work to date, but definitely the thriller of the summer. It has a gloriously insane ending that would be a beauty for a movie adaptation.--Florida Times-Union

"Mr. Barclay is known for keeping readers on the edge of their seats. In Find You First he surpasses his own past successes with a multi-strand plot that bounces, in short, cliff-hanging chapters... Propelled by Dickensian twists of fate and Hitchcockian suspense, the book is populated by a large and colorful cast, including some chillingly pragmatic hit-people, a couple of foolishly adulterous spouses, a desperately lonely comic-book fan and an underage runaway in a gilded cage. All of them help Miles Cookson learn: 'Being a parent is a lot more than just biology.'"--Wall Street Journal

"The twists and turns in Find You First are nicely balanced with suspense, action, character development and a plot that demands that you read the story from start to finish with no pauses or excuses. Barclay, who has demonstrated with a long and impressive bibliography that he is incapable of writing badly, has penned the book of his (or anyone's) career. The cinematic narrative makes it perfect for video adaptation, but don't wait for the movie or the series. Neither could be better than what Barclay has given us in the here and now."--Book Reporter

An incredible thrill ride with non-stop action. . . . [T]here is simply no putting this book down once you get started. . . . In Find You First, Barclay has given us an exciting puzzle to solve, and tremendously interesting characters to solve it with.: --The Nerd Daily

Barclay deftly twists and turns all these characters into a taut and engrossing thriller that will keep readers guessing until the end.--Library Journal (starred review)

"Barclay melds a solid, winning plot with in-depth character studies, including his supporting characters. . . The tense Find You First gains its suspense from its character's motives, not gratuitous action. Another winner from Barclay."--Sun-Sentinel

Prolific novelist Linwood Barclay delivers a clever twist on an old trope . . . Science meets megalomania in this up-to-date nifty entertainment.--Washington Post

"The master of psychological suspense is back with a deadly race against time when the unconventional heirs of a dying tech millionaire begin to meet mysterious ends."--Nerd Daily

"Find You First is an enjoyable, taut thriller that never lets up on the intrigue as it races to tie everything together. What more could anyone ask for?"--Mystery & Suspense

"Suspenseful, expertly paced. . . . Barclay makes even secondary characters feel real. Fans of Daniel Palmer will be pleased."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"A vivid story with a compelling cast of characters mixed with a truly terrifying scenario. . . . Barclay has crafted a great thriller with a surprising ending and readers will sweat a little the next time they get on an elevator."--Associated Press

"Mr. Barclay's books are distinguished by wit and startling twists. In Elevator Pitch, he surpasses himself with a premise suited for the big screen, a plot filled with stunning surprises--and an ending that leaves the reader greatly satisfied."--Wall Street Journal

"This novel moves as fast as a falling elevator and hits with just as much force. Linwood Barclay is a stone cold pro and Elevator Pitch is a shameless good time."--Joe Hill, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Fireman and Strange Weather

"Find You First starts with a bang and ends with an even bigger one. Barclay is a terrific writer, but he's outdone himself with this. It's the best book of his career. I couldn't put it down, and you won't be able to, either. If you enjoy thrillers, this is the real deal. It never lets up."--Stephen King

"A full-throttle powerhouse of a thriller--Linwood Barclay is in a class of his own."--T. M. Logan, author of The Vacation and Lies

"Barclay [is] always good for a touch of cardiac arrest. . . . Chilling . . . wildly inventive and really scary."--New York Times Book Review on Elevator Pitch

"Elevator Pitch is a white-knuckled ride of a book with twists on every level and an unforgettable cast of characters brought to life with Linwood Barclay's signature flair and acuity. I gulped it down."--Gilly Macmillan, New York Times bestselling author of What She Knew and The Nanny on ELEVATOR PITCh

"[Barclay] does a masterful job of layering on the mysteries until we're almost frantically turning the pages, impatient to find out what the hell is going on. A beautifully executed thriller."--Booklist (starred review) on A NOISE DOWNSTAIRS

"Barclay's latest combines an engrossing, fast-moving, well-twisted modern-day plot with believable characters. Fans of psychological thrillers and the author's previous books will love this."--Library Journal [starred review] on ELEVATOR PITCH

"Linwood Barclay's novels - as intelligent as Michael Connelly's, as compelling as Harlan Coben's - never fail to astonish. A Noise Downstairs, his best work yet, is a cobra of a story: smooth, slippery, unnerving . . . and likely to strike when you least expect it. I devoured this book."--A. J. Finn, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Woman in the Window on A NOISE DOWNSTAIRS

"Read Elevator Pitch as soon as possible. It's one hell of a suspense novel."--Stephen King on ELEVATOR PITCH

"Vintage Barclay - A Noise Downstairs is an utterly compelling read with a twist you won't see coming. I loved it!"--Shari Lapena, New York Times bestselling author of A Stranger in the House and The Couple Next Door on A NOISE DOWNSTAIRS
