Review Text

The action of this genuinely unputdownable thriller starts 11 years after the rape and murder of Will Klein's ex-girlfriend. Will's beloved elder brother Ken was the chief suspect and immediately disappeared; despite an international manhunt he was never found. Now a chance discovery reveals that Ken is alive, but when Will shares the evidence with Sheila, the new woman in his life, she disappears overnight. Will's quest for the truth draws him into a terrible nightmare of betrayals and cover-ups: the more he uncovers, the deeper his discoveries draw him into a version of events where nothing makes sense. Organized crime, the FBI, ghosts from the past and his own family all form a circle of deceit spinning faster than you can turn the pages. Harlan Coben is a true master of suspense. The twists and turns in this plot cannot be anticipated and are exposed one by one with ever-advancing tension. Nor does Coben miss anything in his portrayal of loving and compassionate relationships. Indeed it is a mark of his accomplishment as a writer that he makes credible the tortuous connections between humanity and evil, loyalty and betrayal, and compassion and revenge. An outstanding novel. (Kirkus UK)show more
