Elise In "No Time for Goodbye" by Linwood Barclay .... why Enid was in a wheelchair. I just finished the book and really enjoyed it but was just wondering why Clayton's first wife was in a wheelchair. Did they explain it and I missed it?


Maggie I enjoyed this book - so easy to read - but no can't remember why she was in a wheelchair either lol


Chantele Nope they never explained it, I just assumed it was old age?


Laura Good point. That would have been interesting to find out why. I pressumed it was old age too. She deserved to be anyway- evil woman! :-0


Diane It has been a few years since I read this book, don't remember the character of Enid. I need to re-read it. I do remember that it was one of the best books I had read in a long time. Linwood Barclay has a new book out that I have on my "to-read" list.


Linda Some thing needn't be explained because they create an atmosphere of mystery and secrets, what was really what the book was all about.

I just finished reading the book. It took me only 2 days since I picked it up! You're right - there was no explanation behind how Enid ended up in a wheelchair, but I think it makes the whole story just a little bit more interesting. I guess, with a good crime novel, some things are just never meant to be uncovered?... 5 out of 5 stars!

P.S. One more thing. I just realised I cannot remember what happened to Jane, Vince's step-daughter. Vince told Terry to take care of her just before he died, and I don't remember the author mentioning her again...Maybe I missed it, I'm not sure atm.


Mary Just finsihed. I did wonder how Enid ended up in the wheelchair but didn't place too much importance on it. Couldn't put it down. Amazing read with the twists and turns.

Ana Janjic Just finished the book! It was amazing! I liked it very much!!!


Sarah I loved this book!!
The only thing I didn't enjoy about this book was what happened to Vince and Jane!? Perhaps I missed it, but when Vince was added to the story, it made the book so much more enjoyable! I was hoping to read about what happened to Vince!

As for the comments on why Enid was in a wheelchair, seeing as how Mr Sloan was dying I am guessing Enid was also dealing with the outcome of getting old, and you would assume that is why she was in a wheelchair, given the rest of the story, I don't think her being in a wheelchair was quite as relevant as the other parts of the novel so I never even though twice when reading about her being in a wheelchair.


Lyndl Enid need to be wheelchair bound so she couldn't get out of the car at the end
