Far From True by Linwood Barclay

Far From True by BarclayAfter the screen of a run-down drive-in movie theater collapses and kills four people, the daughter of one of the victims asks private investigator Cal Weaver to look into a recent break-in at her father’s house. Cal discovers a hidden basement room where it’s clear that salacious activities have taken place—as well as evidence of missing DVDs. But his investigation soon becomes more complicated when he realizes it may not be discs the thief was actually interested in….

Meanwhile, Detective Barry Duckworth is still trying to solve two murders—one of which is three years old—he believes are connected, since each featured a similar distinctive wound.

As the lies begin to unravel, Cal is headed straight into the heart of a dark secret as his search uncovers more startling truths about Promise Falls. And when yet another murder happens, Cal and Barry are both driven to pursue their investigations, no matter where they lead. Evil deeds long thought buried are about to haunt the residents of this town—as the sins of the past and present collide with terrifying results.

I’m really upset that I didn’t read the books before this one… I think it would have made it a lot better. This book if full of love/hate characters. I went through stages with each and EVERY one of them. Each page brought a new dilemma or some kind of twist.

I don’t know how to say this without a bunch of spoilers, so just be warned before you read any farther. THERE ARE SPOILERS IN THIS REVIEW!

Lets start with the drive in.. a theater screen collapses and falls on top of two vehicles. Kills all four people inside of them. One vehicle was two teens, the other was a married couple. Or so it was thought… After the married couple house was broken into and their secret room was found, they knew something was going on. When the woman’s brother came to identify her remains, a huge bump in the road…. it wasn’t her after all. It was one of their ‘swapping’ partners… Yup you read that right!

Does this have anything to do with the murders around the college campus close by? Well, maybe but you’ll have to read it to find out! Sorry I just did that to you, but c’mon you’ve got to read something… it might as well be something you’ve seen here 😉

I received a complimentary copy of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
