Review: FAR FROM TRUE by Linwood Barclay (PROMISE FALLS #2) Once again, Linwood Barclay breaks the envelope limiting imagination as he returns readers to that exceptionally bizarre community, Promise Falls, New York. (About the only achieved promises here are a failing small-town economy and a cast of really off-the-wall characters.) However, eager readers are guaranteed exciting, thrilling, and riveting entertainment. As far as I know, some of these scenes are never-seen-before. Author Barclay peels off the veneer of this odd community, as he does so.well in each of his novels, and exposes the real issues and real individuals. If you like to explore towns in "the twilight zone," where nothing is as it appears, welcome to Promise Falls, an unforgettable community. I'm enthusiastically awaiting the third in this extraordinary series. Promise Falls: you might want to visit, but you sure don't want to live (or die) there!
