Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“[A] gripping tale…Broken Promise examines several residents of Promise Falls and their hidden secrets and desires. The story is fascinating, and the characters are intriguing…This is like the best epic fantasy novels that hint at more ghastly tales to follow.” Associated Press
“Promise Falls, New York, is a less salacious but deadlier version of Peyton Place in this engrossing small-town thriller from Arthur Ellis Award–winner Barclay… Linwood’s adept characterizations and knack for unsettling twists make this a surefire bestseller.” Publishers Weekly
“David is an appealing hero, flawed but dogged in his pursuit of the truth. Not all the mysteries are solved in this book, which offers an exciting start to a new series set in Promise Falls.” Library Journal
“Twist-driven thrillers packed with explosive action are a hallmark of Linwood Barclay’s career.” USA Today, praise for the author
