Too Close to Home

Too Close to Home by Linwood Barclay  is a event filled thriller with a twist like no other. The news that your neighbours, the Langleys and their teenage son, have been shot dead is shocking enough, but even more terrifying is the thought that maybe the killers went to the wrong house.

The Cutters, who live next door, also have a teenage son, Derek, who was in the Langleys' house when the killer came to visit; naturally Derek becomes the upstate New York cops' chief suspect.

But this is just the start of an extraordinary and complicated series of events that, before the 380 pages are done, are going to lay bare many shameful secrets kept hidden for years. Too Close to Home is generally more intended for a slightly older audience, as the older teens are able to connect with one of the protagonists, Derek. It's a little slow in some parts, but picks up your attention in others.

I wouldn't recommend this book to someone who gets paranoid easily, but for all others it's a good read to check out.
