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.

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!

Wow. Following Grace Lawson as she unravels the mystery of her husband's disappearance is a wild ride. Vicious villains abound on this hard, fast, winding trail - and the pages fly by.

Grace Lawson is a happily married mother whose life is turned upside down after she receives an old photograph of her husband with a group of people. When she asks her husband Jack about the photos origins, he immediately disappears. When he finally telephones briefly, Grace senses that he is in danger. Her efforts to protect her family force her to investigate secrets which others will kill to protect.

Like all of Harlan Coben's standalone thrillers, Just One Look is very suspenseful. The super-scary Eric Wu is back,. The occasional violent scenes are balanced by warm ones; indeed one of Coben's strengths is creating characters you cheer for because they act with the interests of their loved ones at heart.

The ending (which I will not give away) was complicated and perhaps a bit more contrived than some of his other books. Coben's books are always worth the ride though.

For most of the book, I was totally prepared to give this 4 stars, as it hooked me right away and was so suspenseful that I read it in a couple of days. Then I got to then end, which just seemed really implausible and gave the impression that the author had started with a list of characters he wanted to include, then crafted a plot around them...So the 3 stars are for everything before the ending.

Starts off at a gallop and never slows! Coben is still prince of the plot twist!
