A Tap on the Window

Evergreen award winning and bestselling author Linwood Barclay’s latest thriller A Tap on the Window is new to our high holds list this week. The concept: private investigator Cal Weaver’s son died in a tragic drug related accident, and Cal has become consumed by his grief, drifting further and further from his once normal life. One night on his drive home, a girl drenched in rain taps on his car window and asks for a ride. He knows he shouldn’t let her in, but is unable to stop himself from doing so. This is his first mistake. Cal becomes drawn into the suspicion, lies, and secrets of his small town, and decides to expose the murky underbelly hidden beneath his town’s ideal façade. This is his second error, one which may just cost him his life. A Tap on the Window is available to reserve in print and e-book formats from the Haliburton County Public Library today.
