Review: The Accident

The Accident
The Accident by Linwood Barclay

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

A fast paced mystery set in suburbia that doesn't have a bored single mom at the center of the story. That guarantees a book a two star rating from me! Add some decent research, good pacing (except for the big action scene that was obviously written for seeing rather than reading) and hardly any superfluous characters and you've got a decent contemporary mystery that successfully straddles the line between cozy and thriller. If you liked [a:John Katz|3166803|John Katz|http://www.goodreads.com/images/nophoto/nophoto-U-50x66.jpg]'s early mystery series, you'll be happy to discover that the dark side of the suburbs has not lightened up one bit.
