    This is out of date please update he has a new one coming next week

    • Caydence James

      It’s not like someone is standing there “at the ready” with their whole life dedicated to updating this list. As you can see, this was updated soon after the book actually came out (which is smart because there’s a chance that a book could be pushed back). I know he’s a great author but it’s not reasonable to expect them to update something if it hasn’t happened yet. LOL!

  • jan

    I am reading linwood barclay’s “Trust your eyes” and find it very interesting how he can keep the story going with multiple character stories all involved in same mystery. Have to force myself to put it down and take a break..

    • DealerDan

      Is that the first of his you have read?

  • Caydence James

    I think the town is called “Promise Falls”, not “Primrose Falls”. Is the name of the town different in books sold in Canada and England?

    • Thanks Caydence it was a typo – fixed now 🙂

      • Caydence James

        Oh cool! Thanks for the update! I was actually beginning to think that Mr Barclay had different versions in publication for different countries! You’ve just prevented a full on search for the other version! Lol!!!

  • angie 21

    Have read all his stand alone novels and the Promise Falls trilogy. Cannot wait for them to be published quick enough.

  • Brenda Bones

    I just started reading Linwood Barclays books. I love how he intertwines characters to make the mystery more complex.

  • Steve

    Linwood Barkley was born in Darien CT He is an American not Canadian; Just resides in Canada.

    • Brandon

      He moved to Canada when he was 4. I would say that’s pretty Canadian. (I didn’t write this bio, but if I ever have much doubt, I usually leave out nationalities.)
