Publisher's Summary

If you made a mistake that took someone's life, you'd remember it...wouldn't you?

After a tragedy rocks the community of Promise Falls, Cal Weaver is asked to investigate the threats being made to the accused's family. He's heard all about it on the news: the young man who drank too much, stole a Porsche and killed a girl, and who claimed afterwards not to remember a single thing. The whole town is outraged that he got off lightly, but for reasons Cal can't explain he accepts the job. Then Cal finds himself caught up in a vicious revenge plot, chasing someone set on delivering retribution. In Cal's experience, it's only ever a matter of time before threats turn into action....

A gripping thriller packed with scandal in a small town, from the master of the twist you never saw coming - international best seller Linwood Barclay. Read by Jeff Harding.

    Story
    "Promise Falls Final"

    This is fast paced and full of twists and turns. It gets going straight away and has 2 story's connected at the end. There are 2 unanswered questions at the end so I don't think we have seen the last of private eye Cal Weaver and detective Duckworth. Hints maybe they may start up a detective agency. I hope so.

    "Take the long way home - you will want to keep listening"

    Fantastic 4th promise falls yarn - quite often I find that a couple of books into the series they get predictable however this is the complete opposite - kept the momentum right up to the last minute - seriously keeping fingers crossed for the announcement that there will be a 5th one.
    While it would be possible to read this as a stand alone I would recommend reading the other 3 first

    Story
    "Classic Linwood Barclay"

    A tale of retribution and consequences. Set in Promise Falls and told through the eyes of everyone's favourite comfort eating detective Barry Duckworth and the likeable PI. Cal Weaver. If you've enjoyed Linwood's other books then I'm pretty sure you'll enjoy this. If not it might be worth reading the Promise Falls trilogy first.

    "didn't enjoy this book."

    I have read/listened to every single one of Linwood Barclays books and thoroughly enjoyed them all, but this one was lacking in excitement and it dragged in places. very disappointed. apart from that, great narration.
