Description

It's been two months since private investigator Cal Weaver's teenage son, Scott, died in a tragic drug-related accident. Ever since, he and his wife have drifted apart, fracturing a once-normal life. Cal is mired in grief he can't move past. And maybe that has clouded his judgment. Because he made a grave mistake driving home on a very rainy night. A drenched young girl tapped on his window as he sat at a stoplight and asked for a ride. And even though he knew a forty-something man picking up a teenage hitchhiker is a fool, he let her in the car--she was the same age as Scott and maybe she could help him find the dealer who sold his son the drugs that killed him. However, after a brief stop at a roadside diner, Cal senses that something's not right with the girl or the situation. But it's too late. He's already involved.
     Soon Cal finds himself mired in a nightmare of pain and suspicion. Something is horribly wrong in the small town of Griffon in Upstate New York. There are too many secrets, too many lies. And Cal decides to expose those secrets one by one.

Editorial Review

“. . . a killer of a thriller.”
The New York Times

“Barclay’s portrayal of the devastating effect of a son’s death on his loving family is note-perfect. The novel’s minor characters are well developed and deliciously detailed. . . . Barclay’s many fans will need no encouragement to seek this book out. But if you haven’t discovered him yet, it’s time you did.”
The Globe and Mail

“Barclay offers one surprise after another in a mystery that unfolds with the mundane heroism and tragedy of a local news story.”
Publishers Weekly
“Fast-paced, spine-tingling plot twists have long been a staple of Barclay’s domestic thrillers, and his latest installment does not disappoint.”
Library Journal
A Tap on the Window raises the Barclay bar even higher.”
Toronto Star

“A smart whodunit with satisfying twists and turns. Mystery buffs couldn’t ask for more.”
