    Cynthia stood out front of the two-story house on Hickory. It wasn't as though she was seeing her childhood home for the first time in nearly twenty-five years. She still lived in Milford. She'd driven by here once in a while. She showed me the house once before we got married, a quick drive-by. "There it is," she said, and kept on going. She rarely stopped. And if she did, she didn't get out. She'd never stood on the sidewalk and stared at the place.

    And it had certainly been a very long time since she'd stepped through that front door.
    She was rooted to the sidewalk, seemingly unable to take even one step toward the place. I wanted to go to her side, walk her to the door. It was only a thirty-foot driveway, but it stretched a quarter century into the past. I was guessing, to Cynthia, it must have been like looking through the wrong end of some binoculars. You could walk all day and never get there.

    But I stayed where I was, on the other side of the street, looking at her back, at her short red hair. I had my orders.

    Cynthia stood there, as though waiting for permission to approach. And then it came.

    "Okay, Mrs. Archer? Start walking toward the house. Not too fast. Kind of hesitant, you know, like it's the first time you've gone inside since you were fourteen years old."

    Cynthia glanced over her shoulder at a woman in jeans and sneakers, her ponytail pulled down and through the opening at the back of her ball cap. She was one of three assistant producers. "This is the first time," Cynthia said.

    "Yeah yeah, don't look at me," Ponytail Girl said. "Just look at the house and start walking up the drive, thinking back to that time, twenty-five years ago, when it all happened, okay?"
    Cynthia glanced across the street at me, made a face, and I smiled back weakly, a kind of mutual what-are-you-gonna-do?
     
    And so she started up the driveway, slowly. If the camera hadn't been on, is this how she would have approached? With this mixture of deliberation and apprehension? Probably. But now it felt false, forced.

    But as she mounted the steps to the door, reached out with her hand, I could just make out the trembling. An honest emotion, which meant, I guessed, that the camera would fail to catch it.
    She had her hand on the knob, turned it, was about to push the door open, when Ponytail Girl shouted, "Okay! Good! Just hold it there!" Then, to her cameraman, "Okay, let's set up inside, get her coming in."

    "You're fucking kidding me," I said, loud enough for the crew—a half dozen or so, plus Paula Malloy, she of the gleaming teeth and Donna Karan suits, who was doing all the on-camera stuff and voiceovers—to hear.

    Paula herself came over to see me.

    "Mr. Archer," she said, reaching out with both hands and touching me just below my shoulders, a Malloy trademark, "is everything okay?"

    "How can you do that to her?" I said. "My wife's walking in there for the first time since her family fucking vanished, and you basically yell 'Cut'?"

    "Terry," she said, insinuating herself closer to me. "May I call you Terry?"

    I said nothing.

    "Terry, I'm sorry, we have to get the camera in position, and we want the look on Cynthia's face, when she comes into the house after all these years, we want that to be genuine. We want this to be honest. I think that's what both of you want as well."

    That was a good one. That a reporter from the TV news/entertainment show Deadline—which, when it wasn't...

    Barclay (Bad Guys
    ) tugs hard on the heartstrings with the tragic tale of Cynthia Bigge, whose parents and brother vanished without a trace the day after she had a tempestuous teenage argument with her father. Twenty-five years later, raising a daughter with her husband, Terrence Archer, in Milford, Conn., but still haunted by her family's disappearance, Cynthia goes on TV to talk about what happened and plead for clues. A mysterious phone call leads her to believe her father, at least, may still be alive, but as her excitement grows, so do Terrence's worries. It soon appears that someone is playing a unexpectedly vicious game with Cynthia's emotions, and that her family held secrets she never suspected. Though some plot twists require significant suspension of disbelief, skilled characterization and convincing dialogue more than compensate.

    Starred review from September 1, 2007
    Cynthia Archer, a suburban Connecticut teenager, wakes up to an unusually quiet house one morning. At first, she finds the peacefulness comforting, but feelings of horror quickly settle in as she discovers that her family has vanished. Her father, mother, and younger brothergone!without a note or clue as to what happened. Flash forward 25 years, and Cynthia has a family of her own, but she can't stop looking for answers to what happened the day her life changed forever. Is her family still alive? Was she simply abandoned? If the rest of her family was murdered, why was she spared? Small clues to her family's disappearance start to show up, and Cynthia soon faces ghosts more horrific that she ever imagined. For Cynthia, finding the truth may be the worst part of the mystery. Barclay's ("Stone Rain; Bad Move") latest novel is a top-notch thriller, with surprises around every corner. The suspense comes in layer after layer and doesn't stop until the last page. Strongly recommended for all fiction collections. [See Prepub Mystery, "LJ" 6/1/07.]Ken Bolton, Cornell Univ. Lib., Ithaca, NY

    Afterturning out fourmystery novels featuring science-fiction author Zack Walker (the most recent isStone Rain, 2007), Toronto Star columnist Barclaypens a stand-alone thriller that carrieshis signature blend of humor and suspense. Fourteen-year-old Cynthia Bigge wakes up one morning to find her entire family gone. Twenty-five years later, their unexplained disappearance still haunts her. She agrees to appear on thereenactment showDeadline, hoping the TV exposuremight provide her with some answers, although her husband, English teacher Terry Archer, is considerably more skeptical. Indeed, not long after the show airs, thetwo areshaken down by a psychic, receive a series of bizarre phone calls, andbecome the victims ofa break-in, although nothing is taken; instead, something is lefta hat that Cynthia is convinced belonged to her father. As Cynthias paranoia escalates, Terrys patience wears thin, and the two decide to hire a private detective. Thats when the mayhem starts. Despite a few implausible plot turns, thisfast-paced readis bound to please, offering an especially intriguing premise andplenty of irreverenthumor.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2007, American Library Association.)

  • Michael Connelly "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."
  • Robert Crais "No Time for Goodbye is a high-speed emotional roller-coaster. The surprises will leave you breathless."
  • Peter Robinson, author of Piece of My Heart "A terrific page-turner that keeps you in suspense until the very end. If you like Harlan Coben, you'll love Linwood Barclay."
  • David Hewson, author of The Lizard's Bite "No Time for Goodbye begins as an intriguing mystery then shifts with a sinister grace into a race-against-time thriller that begs to be read in a single sitting. Barclay sets his dark tale in the most familiar of surroundings, a decent, loving family, on the verge of being torn apart by tragic events 25 years old. The author's unique voice finds terror in the most mundane of environments, an ordinary home, and thereby makes his shocking and original tale all the more compelling."
  • Joseph Finder "No Time for Goodbye is a turbo-charged, nonstop thriller that got me with every twist and turn. Linwood Barclay has written a mesmerizing, addictive page-turner that I just couldn't put down. It's one of the best suspense novels I've read in years."
  • Charlaine Harris "No Time for Goodbye is a great suburban thriller--and that's not a contradiction in terms. Linwood Barclay doesn't make one false step, and the surprises just keep on coming. Don't start reading No Time for Goodbye late at night: you'll stay up to finish it."
  • Alafair Burke, author of Dead Connection "No Time for Goodbye is a deliciously smart thriller, full of surprises and perfect pacing. I'm jealous I didn't write it."
  • Tess Gerritsen, New York Times bestselling author of The Bone Garden "No Time for Goodbye is one of the best thrillers of the year! Utterly riveting, it will grab you on page one and won't let you go until the final, stunning conclusion."
  • Publishers Weekly "Skilled characterization and convincing dialogue."
