No Safe House

What would you do to protect your daughter …? From the million-copy bestselling author of NO TIME FOR GOODBYE. Seven years ago, Terry Archer and his family experienced a horrific ordeal which nearly cost them their lives.

Today, the echoes of that fateful night are still audible. Terry’s wife, Cynthia, is living separate from her husband and daughter after her own personal demons threatened to ruin her relationship with them permanently. Their daughter, Grace, is rebelling against her parents’ seemingly needless over protection. Terry is just trying to keep his family together. And the entire town is reeling from the senseless murder of two elderly locals.

But when Grace foolishly follows her delinquent boyfriend into a strange house, the Archers must do more than stay together. They must stay alive. Because now they have all been unwillingly drawn into the shadowy depths of their seemingly idyllic hometown. For there, they will be reconnected with the man who saved their lives seven years ago, but who still remains a ruthless, unrepentant criminal.

They will encounter killers for hire working all sides. And they will learn that there are some things people value much more than money, and will do anything to get it. Caught in a labyrinth between family loyalty and ultimate betrayal, Terry must find a way to extricate his family from a lethal situation he still doesn’t fully comprehend.

All he knows is that to live, he may have to do the unthinkable…

    Barclay takes the didn't-see-it-coming twist (of which he is master) to cosmic levels here and has the reader open-mouthed at his ingenuity throughout. His protagonists have depth and complexity and he is even prepared to tackle what is something of a rarity in the crime genre - forcing his readers to change their minds characters safely consigned to the moral outer darkness (FINANCIAL TIMES)
