Parting Shot is a companion novel to the Paradise Falls trilogy by Linwood Barclay, and like those novels, I marvel at Barclay's brilliance.

First off, I don't write reviews but in this instance I felt compelled to. I read lots of books in the crime/thriller genre and Linwood Barclay is one of a handful of authors on my must-read list.
