Find You First: A Novel

We rated this book:


Linwood Barclay just might be one of my new favorite authors. Find You First grabbed me from the very beginning. Miles Cookson is a tech millionaire who has just found out that he has an awful disease. Remembering that he donated sperm many years ago to a sperm bank, he sets out to find his biological children. The problem is, it seems like someone else is looking for them as well, and now they are disappearing one by one.

The book is written in chapters according to where certain events take place. Although it is written in the third person, the reader is given the viewpoints of the kidnappers/killers; Miles and his daughter Chloe; Caroline, Miles’s evil sister-in-law; and Doctor Gold from the sperm bank. It is obvious how all these characters are connected; however, other chapters are about a man named Jeremy Pritkin, an eccentric who enjoys the company of young girls, which is extremely creepy.

I loved how Barclay developed all the characters so well and did not rush the storyline. The story was intricate yet realistic, and I was left guessing until the very end. It’s an absolute must-read book for fans of Harlen Coben.
