One morning, while at her yoga class, Karen Friedman, along with everyone there, learns of the bombing at Grand Central Station. At first, Karen feels horrible for the people involved in some way. Until that same horror starts to sink in - her husband had taken the train to work that morning after bringing the car in for servicing. Trying not to panic, she tries to reach him - but he’s gone. The first bomb was set off in the first...more
"Yes reader, I'm afraid its true - this novel is badly let down by the poor dialogue"
"But Kieran I think, and Kieran don't hate me for saying this, but maybe you are being unfairly picky Kieran?"
"No reader - I am not. The festering dialogue weighs down a good story like a stone anchor
On the morning Karen Friedman learns that her husband, a hedge fund manager, has been tragically killed, Detective Ty Hauck begins his investigation of another man's death in a suspicious hit-and-run in Karen's hometown.
The two seemingly unrelated tragedies are about to plunge a beautiful widow and a determined investigator into a maelstrom of murder, vast sums of missing money, and international conspiracy.

This book has great character dev...more

He was thought to have been killed and burned up in the tragedy. His wife and children accept the inevitable and move on with their lives until terrifying threats and unexplained coincidences cause his wife Karen to doubt everything she new about...more
The book starts off interestingly enough with a somewhat believable family, with a rich business man father, two kids and a homemaker wife whose life takes a turn for the worse after a "terrorist" attack on a subway. I personally thought the terrorist angle was a bit lame, but i guess it served the purpose and since...more

One wealthy family's life is turned upside down the morning of a bombing at Grand Central station as they realize that their husband/father has perished in the destruction. He was a successful hedge fund manager, and as the family attempts to put their lives back in order, things begin to come out that question his integrity.
The same day as the bombing, there was a suspicious hit-and-run in the small town where the family lives. It doesn't sit well with the head detective, Ty Hauck, an...more
I thoroughly enjoyed this one, although there were a few spots that challenged my realm of credibility just a bit. The plot involves misuse of investment funds (think billions, not m...more
His wife, Karen, sees the news in a scene that is reminiscent of the many 9-11 tragedies.
The same day there is a hit and run in Greenwich, Ct. and when Lt Ty Hauk investigates he finds Charles' name and cell phone number in the hit and run victim's pocket.
Karen's troubles aren't over. She is threatened by two men looking for a large amount of mone...more

He was supposed to have died - but a year later, his widow realises he is alive, after watching a TV show on the 1st anniversary of the bombing - Karens sees a fleeting image of someone in the background footage and realises it is Charlie.
This was the perfect scenario for him, for people to believe that he had died, as prior to the bombing, he had been living on the edge - he had...more
Good plot, characters & very believable. A good read, indeed!
The basic plot was interesting, but I found the execution somewhat lacking. The two main characters were likable but all too predictable, except when they did things to move the plot along that would just not happen in real life. Also, the fact that neither of them figured who was behind everything until it was almost too late was just a little silly.
It's not that it was a bad book (although overall a little improbable) it's just that there was nothing new. It was pretty easy to see what was going to happen from far(faaaar) away. The whole, rich housewife/'widow' and small town cop end up taking down professional assassins...more
This novel is an attention grabber right from the start...beware...It is a never ending fast paced story of deception, lies and conspiracies.
It opens one morning at yoga class, Karen Friedman and her friends learn of a fatal bombing at Grand Central Station. Karen at first, felt terrible but her emotions go into high gear when she realizes that her husband Charlie, a hedge fund manager, has taken the train to work. She later finds out that a part of her husband's b...more
