A dark cloud of suspicion and fear continues to hang over the town of Promise Falls.

A series of bizarre, ominously threatening incidents suggests someone is plotting to take revenge on the town. But who is the perpetrator, and revenge for what?

Now the time for threats is over. And the inhabitants are about to discover the truth, with devastating consequences.

    "brilliant!"

    Linwood Barclay is a genius! Jeff Harding is a great narrator. Wonderful story and a thrilling finish to a fantastic trilogy!

    Story
    "A good book, kept me guessing to the end"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Twenty-Three to be better than the print version?

    The only thing I didn't like was Jeff Hardings' American drawl, and he was even worse doing the female voices! The previous two Promise Falls books had great narrators.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I liked the police officer Barry Duckworth who added comedy intervals with his endless battle with cake!


    What three words best describe Jeff Harding’s performance?

    Annoying whining drawl


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me laugh in places, and at times exasperated as the prime suspects kept getting killed off.


    Any additional comments?

    The Promise Falls trilogy needs to be read in order obviously. The last book has all the answers but it still leaves it open to further books. I really enjoyed these books.

    Story
    "Poor ending."

    After having to wait for this the third book for an ending I found it very poor. The story was filled with lots of irrelevant content and the ending was very rushed and unfinished. Linwood has really let his readers down with this one.

    Story
    "Can't Believe I'm saying this....."
    What did you like best about The Twenty-Three? What did you like least?

    The best thing was that it closed off the Trilogy.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    There was a big build up that wasn't necessary due to the other 2 previous books then I felt the ending seemed rushed.


    What does Jeff Harding bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    I have to say one of the better male narrators, tried to differentiate between the many characters and did it quite well.


    If this book were a film would you go see it?

    Obviously.... Its Linwood Barclay... Please 1 film though not 3 ;-)


    Any additional comments?

    I think a lot of time was spend recapping on the 2 previous books which fine, I guess for some is handy. However I think it took time, and words, that could have been used for more detail in the final chapters. Just my opinion though. Still as always and outstanding read from Linwood. Next please ;-)

    "Keeps you guessing till the end."

    I've 'read' all of this author's books & have never been disappointed. This book has a very intriguing plot with lots of twists and turns.

    Story
    "I'm definitely not moving to Promise Falls!"

    I thought Broken Promise was okay, but really enjoyed Far From True and this third and final book in the trilogy, was for me the best. I'd definitely recommend reading or listening to the other two first though. The story has several plot lines running in tandem and I like the way he uses characters from earlier books, although I haven't read all of his earlier books. I enjoyed Jeff Harding's narration, although some of his female characters can be a little whinny. I don't want to spoil the plot, but you'll be thinking twice before drinking tap water whilst you listen to this book.

    "Another winner for Linwood Barclay"

    Although I'm an avid fan of Mr Barclays books and can admit I'm a little biased but this climax to the trio of Promise Falls got me guessing right to the end plenty of twists and a possibility he hasnt finished in Promise Falls I recommend this to all thriller readers but you need to read Broken promise and Far from true first. Thanks Linwood and please hurry with next one

    Story
    "Good but complicated!!"

    This is a good follow up to the previous two and finally finishes the story (was worried at one point it might roll over into book 4!)
    The only problem is, as there has been quite a gap, I did forget who was who and there are quite a lot of main characters in the plot that it took me a while to remember what had happened to whom previously.
    However- plenty going on which is great. Narrated well except him women's voices are a bit patronising!!
