This was my first time to read anything by Harlan Coben. I have not read a contemporary murder mystery in quite some time, and I will say that I was not disappointed.

In all, the mystery was very good. I did not put all of the pieces together until the moment before the author handed them to me on a platter, which is all I can ask for in a solid murder mystery. The characters were a little bit cookie cutter an fit into some pretty typical stereotypes, but they were interesting and the dialogue was witty, which made it easy to forgive them for their lack of true originality.

Even though this book was supposedly not written in response to the Duke lacrosse team rape trial, the similarities were striking. In all, it was a fast paced, easy to read mystery that I really enjoyed and would gladly recommend.

Large print. Super exciting mystery that grabs you from the first page. Coben writes nail-biters and this is one of his best. Recommended!

I really enjoyed this book, and finished it in less than two days. There were so many twists and turns, it never got boring. Nor did I get lost by all the characters introduced throughout as I sometimes do. I'd certainly recommend this to others.
