It's time to celebrate: Linwood Barclay's bone-chilling thriller, A Noise Downstairs, goes on sale today! The New York Times bestselling author of No Time for Goodbye ramps up the tension in his latest, which follows a college professor who, reeling from a near-death encounter with a murderer, becomes convinced his new typewriter is possessed and that its messages are related to the now-incarcerated killer.
The Associated Press just ran a fantastic review (read it here), that was picked up by the Washington Post, San Francisco Chronicle, ABC News, Houston Chronicle, Connecticut Post, and more:
"Proving that Barclay is a master of manipulation, he pulls a genuinely unexpected twist that throws everything revealed up to that point entirely out the window. This thriller then kicks into high gear as it becomes a race for answers and justice.... Predictable becomes unpredictable in this compelling book that echoes the best of Harlan Coben."
Booklist also gave the book a STARRED review, saying:
"[Barclay] does a masterful job of layering on the mysteries until we’re almost frantically turning the pages, impatient to find out what the hell is going on. A beautifully executed thriller."
Congratulations to Linwood on the release of A Noise Downstairs. Be sure to celebrate properly by running out and getting yourself a copy!
