Coben does it again and ruins all my plans to run errands, cook, clean and grocery shop today. I could not put it down! I need to plan when to start a Coben better! And just when I thought I had it all figured out, whammy a sneak attack! Loved it, Loved it!

It's been a long time since I've read a book that was so captivating that I could not put it down! This is my first Harlan Coben book, but it won't be my last. His writing style is great, the book moves along at a good pace and never gets logged down in too many details or descriptions. The clues kept me guessing and going in several different directions, right up to the very end. I really enjoyed reading this book.

This book should get more than just 5 stars. Lots of twists and turns and dozens of surprises keep you turning the pages. I couldn't put this books down. Don't cheat by reading the last few pages. This book really does end of the last page.

This audiobook was excellent. Harlen Coben kept me guessing until the very end. I had the plot figured out several times, or so I thought, and was completely wrong. The murder of four teenagers at summer camp started the book and allowed many twists. There were times I was sad that my commute was over because I was caught up in the stroy and even sat in my driveway until a part was over several times. Would recommend.

I thoroughly enjoyed The Promise which led me to try another book by this author. I can now say for sure that I am hooked. It was difficult to put the book down.

This book could be a little confusing because of the different story lines but they all come together in the end. Again, it's one of those stories when you think you've got it figured out only to be proved wrong.

Excellent author. I can't wait to read more of his books.

This book kept me reading! Starts with a camp for teenagers, some go into the woods and never come out. Later when some are all grown up and successful the mystery of the Woods come back to haunt them. And one especially tries to find answers to what happened that night in the Woods.

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.
