"No Time for Goodbye"

No_time_for_goodbyeI have just finished reading an excellent novel by Linwood Barclay entitled No Time for Goodbye.

Here is the author's "teaser" about the book:

One night, when Cynthia Archer was 14 years old, her family disappeared. Now, 25 years later, she’s about to learn what happened to her mother, father, brother, and she might be better off never finding out.

According to Alafair Burke, “No Time For Goodbye is a deliciously smart thriller, full of surprises and perfect pacing. I'm jealous I didn't write it."  I completely agree.

BUT, what is not revealed in any teasers or reviews, is that this book has its foundations in wills, trusts, and estates!  In fact, the plot could not exist with our area of the law!  So as not to spoil the book for readers who have not yet experienced it, I have posted my discussion of the connection off-site here.

I was wondering if there is a movie based on the book No Time For Good-bye
