Fear the Worst by Linwood Barclay
Released: August 2009

Linwood Barclay initially caught my attention after I had been perusing "best of" book lists on Pinterest and saw that Trust Your Eyes was recommended as one of the "best thrillers that you can't stop reading." I couldn't find a copy of Trust Your Eyes at my local bookstore, but I did manage to pick up the only other title that was available, which was Fear the Worst.

In Fear the Worst, Tim Blake - an average divorced guy who works as a car salesman at a Honda dealership - searches high and low for his teenaged daughter after she seemingly disappears without a trace. After having eaten breakfast with her one morning before work, Sydney never comes home after her shift at a local motel, and not even her closest friends know where she's gone.
