So starts one of the most exciting books I have read this year. Fear The Worst is the definition of a page turner. I could not put it down until I finished it. Every question that is answered only brings up two more in its place. The pace is fast and furious and makes for a great read. I will definitely be checking out Linwood Barclay's previous books
