    I have read both Robert Brenda’s thrillers girl in the ice and night stalker ….they are 2 of the best books ive read so far and cannot wait to read more from this author Girl in the ice is a gripping story from begining to end I recommend it to everyone who loves thrillers ….In my opinion it would make a brilliant TV drama …

    Absolutely a real page turner. Am now reading Night Stalker and it is just as good. Hope they keep coming.

    You ACED it Robert…the Girl in the Ice was a thrill a minute and an ‘on the edge of my seat’ page turner till the very end… and the winner is Robert.

    Read both books so enjoyed them. Hope there will b many more to come

    I enjoyed reading the book In a dark dark wood by Ruth Ware. I want to read Ruth Ware’s new book The Women In Cabin 10.

    Just finished Girl In the Ice and immediately ordered Night Stalker. Great suspense writing and highly recommend.

    Girl in the Ice is a brilliantly written crime thriller,I couldn’t put it down,and will be looking to get his next book.

    Girl in thevIce kept me gripped to the last page. The characters are well drawn and believeable. I just couldn’t put it down. Now halfway through the Night Stalker, equally brilliant.

    Love Lynwood Barclay book. Always exciting edge of the seat stuff. Bring it on!

    I found it a very good page turner, with a good plot line and a few twists and turn with dead ends thrown in for good measure.

    I haven’t read any of Linwood Barchay’s books, although I have a few of this author’s books in my library. I’m kind of going down a list and I will get to them soon ……..Sorryu

    Brilliant, so immediately signed up to his next book

    The Girl In The Ice is one of the most compelling novels I’ve read in years. I read the last half in one sitting! Because I’m on a fixed income I have to wait for his new book to go down in price.
    Good job Robert!

    I thought The Girl In The Ice was easily the best crime thriller I’ve read so far this year. Loved it, and immediately signed up for his next one, which I’ve just finished reading. Also a top notch book.

    Chillingly good! #2Night Stalker is excellent as well!!

    This author was absolutely point on with descriptions and character development
    I love a good murder. I love even more a brain exercise.
    Girl in The Ice had it all.
    So much so it’s now a favorite of my friends.
