The Accident - Linwood Barclay
Before I start reviewing a book I like to see what others have said. No exception to that here either, so why have I given it five stars where others have given a one, two or three? Because I think that sometimes we can be so blind in a relationship that we really can't understand when something completely out of character takes place and this is how I felt for Glen after he discovers that his wife had been driving drunk, killing not just herself, but two other people.
Glen tries to hold it together for his daughter and his business but then his daughter Kelly's best friend Emily loses her mother supposedly also to an accident and Glen starts to question what is really going on in suburban Milford.
Having read my other Linwood Barclay reviews I can understand what people are saying about the plots. He seems to take pretty normal family situations and turn innocent people's lives on their heads, so yes, a repeating pattern, having said that, I haven't read one of his books for years, so had forgotten this pattern and as a result enjoyed how the plot twists and turns.
