Coben takes a good plot and suspense, but taints it with cardboard characters and too much suspension of belief. The humorous first person which I normally love seems to only work part of the time. Will, the protagonist seems to have only two traits: irrationally angry and hopelessly naive (you know, when another character is trying to explain a formulaic plot twist that you as the reader saw through five minutes earlier, but he just can't wrap his head around it.) The only interesting character is one of the antagonists, the Ghost, and even he is dulled down by the end. With the plot and pacing, I might have rated this one higher if I hadn't recently read so many superior books lately, including thrillers. This is your literary equivalent of a Lifetime Movie Network original.
