Another good Harlan Coben. I wouldn't say it's his best though. I thought the ending was a little too stretched out and sort of a lame twist...but overall I enjoyed the book.

Oh my, what a thriller. Kept me on the edge all the way through. I couldn't put the book down. Will definitely have to read his other books. Hope they are as good as this one.

Coben does not disappoint. My only complaint - the psycho torturers are creepy and I really wish he'd forget about them.

Coben always leaves you thanking your lucky stars that you don't have the families he writes about!

Another great one by Harlan Coben. He is the master of the genre. Plot twists and clues revealed most unexpectedly keep you guessing right up until the end. And just when you think the story is over and all has been revealed--BAM--a new twist. Great book!

At first I had a hard time getting into this, but I stuck with it, and wow, am I glad I did! Coben does a good job of developing the characters.

Grace Lawson finds an od photo, one she didn't take, in a set of newly developed photos she picks up. She doesn't recognize any of the people in it, but one looks a lot like her husband, Jack. When Jack sees the photo, he leaves in the family car with no explanation and disappears, taking the photo with him.

Grace struggles to keep her and their childrens' lives as normal as possible while she begins to search for her husband. The path to discovering his whereabouts and the reason for his leaving takes many twists and turns, with quite a surprising ending!

This was my third Harlan Coben novel, after Tell No One and No Second Chance. Despite the thrills and chills, I couldn't quite connect with the characters. If you never identify with the main characters in some essential way, it's hard to care what ultimately happens to them. Some indefinable magnetism was missing this time. That's all I can blame. The plot and dialogue were as inventive as ever.
