My name is Jane Cotton and my recommended author is Linwood Barclay.
I have always enjoyed crime/mystery books and have read most if not all from Lee Child, Kathy Riechs, Alexander McCall Smith, David Baldacci, Michael Connelly etc. I guess you get the picture.
However, a friendly volunteer put me on to Linwood Barclay and I have really enjoyed the 2 series that I have read.
The first series I read was about Zak Walker, a reluctant detective and what I really enjoyed was the humour behind the character as well as, of course, the unexpectedness that always makes a good read. Bad Move was the first in this series.
I have now moved on to a trilogy about Promise Falls- small town USA with Broken Promise. Here, Linwood, was juggling several story lines and I was rather amazed that one story line was left in complete limbo so I am really looking forward to book 2 in the series.
If you like similar stories and you’ve not read any of Linwood Barclay’s books, please give them a try- as far as I can see we have most in our library.
