A Tap On The Window by Linwood Barclay

A Tap on the WindowA Tap on the Window by Linwood Barclay
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A very good mystery that kept unfolding in ever more strange ways. Cal Weaver is a private detective whose teenaged son either fell or jumped from a building while under the influence of drugs and died two months earlier. This prompted Cal to investigate everyone who had been in contact with his son and basically trying to find out out sold him the drugs that caused him to do this.

The story opens on a rainy night with Cal being asked for a ride by a teenaged girl. He feels uncomfortable about picking her up, but when she says that she knew his son he feels compelled to drive her home.

This is the beginning of a downward, very dark spiral, quite a surprise for a Linwood Barclay book.
