Not as good as "Trust Your Eyes' where the problem starts slowly and builds, but in "Fear the Worst," Barclay's thriller gets off to the races very quickly. Tim Blake is having his usual problems; they seem to follow him around. He's a car salesman who's just barely making it, yet he has one redeeming characteristic, his love for his 17 year-old daughter Sydney. Separated, Tim has custody of her for the summer. She disappears one day - she doesn't come home from her receptionist job at a second-rate hotel in town. Tim worries that a tiff at breakfast over something he asked about has made her run off. He soon starts searching and finds that her job may be fictitious, that his former wife's new relationship may be part of the problem, and that he can't get any help from the police. Indeed he quickly climbs to suspect #1. Both Tim and the reader become more and more anxious. Throw in his neurotic girl-friend, enough dead bodies to require a very large hearse, and hints of the mob, and I had an enjoyable read.

The first half of the story is so slow and boring that if I am reading its print version, I would have given up long ago. The last quarter of the story is okay, but it can definitely be a lot shorter and tighter!
