REVIEW: FIND YOU FIRST, BY LINWOOD BARCLAY

Tech millionaire Miles Cookson has more money than he can ever spend, and everything he could dream of—except time. He has recently been diagnosed with a terminal illness, and there is a fifty percent chance that it can be passed on to the next generation. For Miles, this means taking a long hard look at his past . . .

Two decades ago, a young, struggling Miles was a sperm donor. Somewhere out there, he has kids—nine of them. And they might be about to inherit both the good and the bad from him—maybe his fortune, or maybe something much worse.

As Miles begins to search for the children he’s never known, aspiring film documentarian Chloe Swanson embarks on a quest to find her biological father, armed with the knowledge that twenty-two years ago, her mother used a New York sperm bank to become pregnant.

When Miles and Chloe eventually connect, their excitement at finding each other is overshadowed by a series of mysterious and terrifying events. One by one, Miles’s other potential heirs are vanishing—every trace of them wiped, like they never existed at all.

Who is the vicious killer—another heir methodically erasing rivals? Or is something even more sinister going on?

It’s a deadly race against time . . .

 

an interior journey thoughts

 

As we first meet up with Miles Cookson in Find You First, he is struggling with an impossible diagnosis. And to make everything worse, he is realizing that a decision he made as a young person could now have horrendous effects on a group of young adults.

Alternating between the narrative of Miles and his possible heirs kept me eagerly turning pages as he tries to find them before something terrible happens.

Who is chasing after them, hoping to reach them, and what is the motivation for this race against time?

Several nefarious characters are pushing ahead to wipe them off the face of the earth, including any sign of their existence. Miles’s wealth is a big factor, but there is more at stake for one of the evil characters.

Back and forth we go, and just when I thought I had it all figured out, there were a few stunning threads unraveling just when we needed to know more. A 5 star read.
