Review quote

'Harlan Coben writes puzzle books. I like puzzles and I like being fooled. Coben does that extremely well, probably better than anyone else around at the moment. Just One Look. is a puzzle book par excellence. I loved it.' -- Mark Timlin THE INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY 'Coben's power lies not only in narrative and pithy dialogue... his characters are properly fleshed out and credible, making for an emotional, as well as scary, rollercoaster of a read.' THE DAILY MAIL 'In the hands of Harlan Coben, you are kept guessing - and intrigued - until the last line. Just when you think you understand everything, Coben introduces a surprising twist. His previous books have been massive bestsellers, and if you read this one you will understand why.' -- Matthew Lewin THE GUARDIAN 'Coben has a highly readable style [and] the crucial skill of being able to evoke evil.' THE DAILY TELEGRAPH 'Coben's best' THE GOOD BOOK GUIDE 'Coben is one of the genre's big hitters and on this showing it's easy to see why.' LONDON METRO 'If you've never read a Harlan Coben, you're in for a treat. As a thriller writer, he is right up there with the best with a great ear for dialogue and total mastery of storytelling. Just one look and you'll be hooked.' ladsmag.com 'The best book I've read this year. Coben moves the story along at breakneck speed and the twists keep coming with an eye-popping intensity.' CRIMETIME 'A gritty, fast paced page turner with convincing characters and a twist to die for' NEWMARKET JOURNAL "A spell-binding storyteller." IRELAND ON SUNDAYshow more
