Description

Matt Hunter's life has already been blown away once. At the age of twenty, he got into a fight outside a party and accidentally killed someone. That momentary lapse of reason cost him four years in gaol, and a small sliver of his soul. But when he got out he set about rebuilding his life. He carved himself a job as a lawyer and married a beautiful woman. The break in the road seems to have only made him a stronger person. However, when he receives a strange video message on his mobile phone and he realises that a very bad man is following him, his new existence is suddenly under threat. Why is this ex-con on his tail, and who really is this woman he has married? Suddenly Matt can't trust anybody - least of all those he loves...show more

Review quote

"Harlan Coben always has a good tale to tell, and he knows how to present it with elegance, pace and loads of tension." -- Matthew Lewin THE GUARDIAN "The enjoyably intricate plot takes several turns before we are fooled for the last time and the villains and motive are revealed. A book to read in one gulp." -- Susanna Yager THE SUNDAY TELEGRAPH "A typically brilliant offering from Harlan Coben, with the storyline gripping you from the first line... another excellent thriller that you will be unable to put down. Highly recommended. Absolutely vintage Harlan Coben." www.crimesquad.com "This is familiar Coben territory -- dark, twisted and gripping." -- Carla McKay DAILY MAIL, 22 April "Unpretentious fun." DAILY TELEGRAPH, 18 June "Another smash hit" -- Janet Devlin THE BELFAST TELEGRAPH, 23 April "A narrative that springs a non-stop series of surprises on the reader and scabrously witty dialogue.." -- Barry Forshaw DAILY EXPRESS, 3 June "Coben's forte is the creation of complex plots, peopled with characters that the reader likes and identifies with. He has a great talent for keeping the reader guessing as to what is really going on -- and turning the pages to find out." DEADLY PLEASURES, Spring 2005show more
