Reviews

"Find You First starts with a bang and ends with an even bigger one. Barclay is a terrific writer, but he's outdone himself with this. It's the best book of his career. I couldn't put it down, and you won't be able to, either. If you enjoy thrillers, this is the real deal. It never lets up."--Stephen King
"Mr. Barclay is known for keeping readers on the edge of their seats. In Find You First he surpasses his own past successes with a multi-strand plot that bounces, in short, cliff-hanging chapters... Propelled by Dickensian twists of fate and Hitchcockian suspense, the book is populated by a large and colorful cast, including some chillingly pragmatic hit-people, a couple of foolishly adulterous spouses, a desperately lonely comic-book fan and an underage runaway in a gilded cage. All of them help Miles Cookson learn: 'Being a parent is a lot more than just biology.'"--Wall Street Journal
"The twists and turns in Find You First are nicely balanced with suspense, action, character development and a plot that demands that you read the story from start to finish with no pauses or excuses. Barclay, who has demonstrated with a long and impressive bibliography that he is incapable of writing badly, has penned the book of his (or anyone's) career. The cinematic narrative makes it perfect for video adaptation, but don't wait for the movie or the series. Neither could be better than what Barclay has given us in the here and now."--Book Reporter
"Prolific novelist Linwood Barclay delivers a clever twist on an old trope . . . Science meets megalomania in this up-to-date nifty entertainment."--Washington Post
"[Find You First] is not only [Barclay's] best work to date, but definitely the thriller of the summer. It has a gloriously insane ending that would be a beauty for a movie adaptation."--Florida Times-Union
