My First Linwood Barclay! WHAT Took Me SO Long?!
The Good News?! It was a Complete Success!
When single millionaire Miles Cookson finds out that he has a fatal disease, he sets out to make things right. Years prior, when he was a young man, he donated his sperm and could potentially have fathered several children. The chances are that he could have passed this terminal disease on to them. Now, he wants to find them and help them out the best way he knows how but giving them a part of his fortune.
Unfortunately for him, someone wants to stop that from happening and the outcome for his heirs ain’t pretty.
A race against time. Mystery and intrigue that will blow your mind. Connections that steal your heart.
“Find You First” by Linwood Barclay exceeded my expectations. It was a well-written, suspenseful, character-driven mystery suspense that kept me glued to the plot for the entirety of the novel. Though this was my first Linwood Barclay, it will not be my last.
Thank you to my book buddy Kaceey for recommending Linwood Barclay to me and for reading it with me. SO glad we both loved it.
Thank you also to Sam Glatt of Harper Collins – William Morrow, & Scene of the Crime for the arc.

Once again Linwood Barclay nails it with an unputdownable thrill ride!
I have been reading this author’s books for years and I know I’m always guaranteed an exciting read when I pick up one of his books.
Miles Cookson just received devastating news. He has a terminal disease. Not even his millions of dollars he has earned in his tech company can save him. But maybe he can use his wealth to help others he may have inadvertently passed on his illness to. You see he has Huntington’s Disease, which is a genetic disorder. Offspring have a one in four chance of carrying the gene that will one day claim their lives.
Only Mikes never had children…at least the traditional way. But as a struggling young man, he did donate his sperm to a fertility clinic. Now he needs to track down his potential grown children to warn them and assist in helping pay for any care they may need.
Sounds simple right? But what if these ‘kids’ are vanishing before he can find them? Who else is tracking them….and why?
Linwood Barclay has the gift of pulling you into the story right from the beginning. Fasten your seat belt because you are about to be taken on one heck of a ride.
There are shocking moments and plenty of red herrings to keep you guessing!
If you’ve never read a book by this author…. What are you waiting for!? This would be a great one to start with. I’ve read them all…. so now I have to sit and wait for his next release! Finger poised over the request button!👆🏼🙏🏼
A buddy read with Susanne!
Thank you to Sam Glatt, Scene of the Crime Early Read program, and William Morrow via Netgalley for an ARC to read and review.
