No Time For Goodbye by Linwood Barclay
Cynthia Bigge, a rebellious fourteen-year-old, wakes up one morning to find that her entire family has vanished without a trace.
What do you do when there is no evidence, no note left behind, no witnesses?
All Cynthia wants is some closure.
Twenty-five years later, she'll finally learn the truth...
Throughout the book, there are strange things that begin to happen. Phone calls, notes, e-mails...information that leads to so many more questions than answers.
Great book. This is another author I would like to keep following. It's a great suspense story that you can't help but get caught up in it. So many twists and turns, it'll have you on the edge of your seat...well, for me it did. I couldn't put it down.
I loved how it was written. He did a nice job at building the background of each character. From the devastating situation that Cynthia had to go through as a child, you can definitely understand why she does the things she does. For example, being extra cautious when it comes to her daughter because she is aware that the world is sometimes a cruel place.
Her husband understands her frustrations and is by her side 100%, but later starts to wonder if she's having a nervous breakdown after all those years.
I personally loved the ending of the book; I wouldn't have had it any other way.
