Tenth Anniversary edition of the million-copy, bestselling novel No Time for Goodbye with a special introduction from Linwood Barclay.



‘One of the world’s finest thriller writers’ Peter James

*

The house was silent. That was the first sign that something was terribly wrong.

Fourteen-year-old Cynthia wakes one morning to discover that her entire family – mother, father, brother – have vanished.

No note, no trace and no return. Ever.

Now, twenty-five years later – with a family of her own – a letter arrives which chills Cynthia to the core.

It leads her inescapably down the path to the devastating truth behind why they left.

Sometimes it’s better not to know…

Reviews

No Time for Goodbye just flies off the page. It's a one-sit thriller. You sit down with this book and you won't get up until you've turned the last page
Michael Connelly
Barclay succeeds in both banging the gong and serving up a riveting, rewarding and, for the most part, plausible three courses, though you may need to take a deep breath somewhere around the coffee stage
GUARDIAN
A fast-moving roller-coaster of a read
DAILY EXPRESS
Barclay's enjoyably creepy tale...certainly keeps one turning the pages
THE TIMES
Where has Linwood Barclay been all my life? His is the best thriller I've read in five years. Once I was 30 pages in, I literally couldn't put it down. The writing is crisp; the twists are jolting and completely unexpected
Stephen King, ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY
Seamless, breathless and relentlessly pacey, Barclay barely puts a foot wrong
