Parting Shot
Parting Shot - Linwood Barclay

Promise Falls #4  

By:  Linwood Barclay 

ISBN: 1409163938 

Publisher: Random House

Publication Date: 10/31/2017 

Format: Kindle 

My Rating: 5 Stars

 

Linwood Barclay returns with his riveting series, Promise Falls following The Twenty Three #3 (2016) with his best yet, in the twisty PARTING SHOT (#4) — a fitting title for his latest riveting thriller. 

Packed with a serious savage punch, and more twists than the Pacific Hwy., we revisit the small fictional town of Promise Falls in upstate New York, outside of Albany. 

A small town filled with scandal and secrets and an overwhelming need for revenge and some evil vigilante justice! 

However, often we find the revenge is directed at the wrong person which causes some major problems for everyone involved. (sorry, killed the wrong person-collateral damage). 

Read My Reviews: 
Broken Promise #1 
Final Assignment #1.5 
Far From True #2
The Twenty-Three #3 

PARTING SHOT almost slipped by me. Thank goodness, the minute I received the newsletter from the author, I was on Amazon clicking away to purchase this one. 

Having read every book in this engrossing series, PARTING SHOT was my favorite. I stayed up until 5 am two mornings in a row to finish. It was worth every minute.

Again, keep your scorecard handy and hang on for a roller coaster wild ride!

This time around, we revisit with characters PI Cal Weaver and Detective Barry Duckworth (two of my favorites) from Promise Falls. Even though the two guys are familiar with one another, neither of the two realize the other is working separate cases which will ultimately connect. 

I for one, am hoping these two go into business together for future books. A huge fan of the series.

There is a common interest that bridges the two cases. Just Deserts. 

A vigilante. A website for those who want Justice. Even though not in the legal sense. People all over the planet inspired to exact vengeance on people who've got it coming, hoping like crazy that what they do is nasty enough to be honored on the website. 

Of course, Promise Falls is well known in this department. Getting even.

Duckworth almost died in the last book and is now a hero. He loves his donuts; however, his wife wants him around a little longer and has changed his diet. He is now down to 233 (loss of 47 pounds). However, he is still tempted.

Could he be getting too old for the job? Maybe a career change is in order?

His is married to Maureen and has a son named Trevor (now twenty-five living back at home). Duckworth's current case takes him to a bar, Knights and when he looks at the surveillance video; his son is lip locking in a corner with some gal, named Carol. Unemployed, but out drinking and evidently up to something secretive. 

What do they have to do with the abduction? 

A guy, Brian Gaffney was abducted from the bar and he does not remember anything. However, he has tattooed on his back, “I’m the sick F*** who killed Sean. He has no clue what this means? He seeks Duckworth’s help. 

There was also an older case of a younger guy, Craig Pierce(known sex offender) who molested a mentally handicapped girl and someone had taken matters into their own hands, months ago- since the law did not make him pay. 

Someone abducted him and had a dog to literally disfigure him. Half his face is missing, plus some manly private parts (ouch). The guy is barely alive. However, he is out to find the person who did this to him. 

Could it be the same person after Jeremy this time?

However, did what happened to Brian have anything to do with the other cases, or was he in the wrong place at the wrong time? 

Cal Weaver has suffered much loss from the previous books. His wife and son are gone. He is moving on and out on his own with a PI business.

His assignment takes him to twenty-something, Jeremy’s family. The wealthy grand-aunt, alcoholic mother-Gloria, her boyfriend, Bob, attorney, Grant Finch and big deal businessman, rich Galen Broadhurst – the guy who owned the Porch. 

Jeremy, was supposedly drunk driving one of his father’s friends' 9ll Porch and ran over and killed a young innocent girl. The attorney and mother helped him get off (so he did not have to do prison time), and there are many which are unhappy. 

They dubbed him as The Big Baby. He also has a friend Charlene. (many red herring here). The website followers are all over this case. They want to make him pay, since the legal system did not. 

Was there something else at play here they overlooked in the original investigation? Was Jeremy really guilty? You can be sure Cal will find it. 

Now throw in the mix, Jeremy and Brian look similar. Also to complicate matters, Brian was seeing a married woman Jessica (which he was unaware of her status). Also, Brian’s neighbors have issues (this gets quite comical with the dad). 

Why would someone tattoo something permanently etched into someone’s skin? A hidden message?

In the social media world and in real life, they are making Jeremy and his family miserable. They are in danger. They call in Cal to be his so-called bodyguard while investigating. However, Cal digs a little deeper into Jeremy’s past problems and gets too close to the truth putting them in more danger. 

Cal is on the run with Jeremy to keep the wolves away and get him out of town; however, someone is tracking them. However, it may be more than one person after them with different motives. 

Wow, PARTING SHOT was unputdownable! As always, in addition to the main cases, there are also always some entertaining secondary characters which always bring more exciting drama. Leave it up to Barclay to bring in another shocker added twist at the 98% mark.

Supercharged, from social media attacks and those who want to make their mark no matter how far they have to go to achieve their status. 

One of my favorite authors, (have read all his books), Barclay delivers a non-stop action crime thriller, in this town of wacky and dysfunction. A powerful writer, Barclay keeps the dry humor, domestic suspense, surprises, and plot twists coming full throttle from upstate New York to Cape Cod— there is never a dull moment. 

If you have not experienced Linwood Barclay, highly suggest you get started. For fans of Michael Robotham and Harlan Coben as well as those readers who enjoy intelligent dark thrillers with loads of twists.

Can’t wait to see what’s next! It is high time for a movie. What an imagination and an amazing storyteller.

Follow These Steps to Take Advantage of Solar Energy

As prices of coal, gas and oil continue to climb, households across the country are switching to alternative sources of energy, which are both eco-friendly and money-saving. Scientists and researchers have been looking for the perfect energy source for decades—one that is dependable, renewable and abundant—and solar energy fits the bill. Consumers searching for an effective energy solution for their home or commercial space should consider solar Idaho projects, as they are affordable, dependable and easily implemented.

 


Before a property can be powered by solar energy, these steps must be followed:


• Calculate Electricity Needs


Homeowners should study their total electricity consumption and usage patterns. With this information, comparisons will help determine which available solutions will provide maximum benefits.


• Assess Options


There is no “one size fits all” solution for solar energy needs. In fact, there are multiple options from which to choose depending on each unique situation and needs. As an example, installations of solar Twin Falls or Boise or Mountain Home would each have a different design due to diverse conditions. The scope and size of each new device or system depends on individual electricity needs, as well as the amount and times of ideal sunlight, shade and darkness.


• Compare Installers


When comparing installers, it is very important to select a certified professional—one who is qualified and with direct experience implementing the solution you choose. Only an experienced professional can provide an accurate assessment of the site and determine the best solutions.


• Coordinate Installation


The installer will take the lead on installation day and guide each involved party through the process. Partnering with an experienced installer ensures that the project will be precisely planned and proceed smoothly.


Anyone searching for cost-effective, efficient and environmentally-sound solar products should look no further than EvenGreen Technology. The dedicated professionals at EvenGreen Technology combine the latest in innovative technology with unsurpassed customer service skills to exceed each customer’s expectations.

Shiver
Shiver - Maggie Stiefvater

Normally I'm not that into YA books including vampires/werewolves etc. But I heard a lot of positive stories about this series by Maggie Stiefvater, so I thought: Lets give it a try.


It didn't disappoint me at all. I liked it. It was a easy reading, nice story. Different from what I'm used to read, but fun though. The story wasn't very complicated, I'll admit that, but it can by nice every once in a while to read a more simple book. It can be really enjoyable. Probably also a good read during the summer vacation.

Josiah Stone is the local sheriff who is her neighbor. Josiah falls for Melanie really hard and fast. He is determined to show all good things about Christmas.

 

I thoroughly enjoyed Christmas in Silver Bell Falls. I love the Holiday romances. I loved seeing the characters go through their own struggles. I loved how Josiah was determined to give Melanie a Christmas that she would love. There was funny moments and sad moments. These elements made this story a wonderful holiday read. I fell in love with the town of Silver Bell Falls and its residents.

I highly recommend this book. I give it 5 stars. This is a great Holiday romance. Must read.

The Fall (Havenwood Falls)
The Fall: (A Havenwood Falls High Novell... The Fall: (A Havenwood Falls High Novella) - Kristen Yard,Liz Ferry,Kristie Cook

I received this book to give an honest review.

 

This gives a whole new outlook on sirens. Serena is drawn to the water yet she doesn't know why, when she plans on leaving Havenwood Falls it seems that her aunt wants to keep her there for a reason. Though Serena doesn't understand why. With her best friend Nikki acting strange, her mother is not herself anymore something just screams there is a huge secret here but what is it exactly? Will Serena and one of her best friends ever get to leave and study aboard or is there a reason she is to stay here?

 For a novella I felt that everything flowed together nicely and nothing was left out. All it did was leave me wanting more of Havenwood Falls! What is going on in this town of supernaturals! 

I have to say I am really enjoying this series and it is hard to believe that it is all done by different authors. So it isn't just one author writing about different characters it is different authors which is just too cool. I do believe I will be reading these books because they are just good clean, well written, plot steady stories.
