I bought this on audiobook to listen to in the car and I found myself being happy to be in traffic jams because I didn't want to hurry home, it was that good!

This is the story of Paul Copeland, a county prosecutor, who has a blast from the past when a dead body turns up. Twenty years before, at a summer camp, four teenagers are murdered and buried in the woods while Cope (Paul) is supposed to be on gurad duty. Instead he is having a bit of a fumble with his girlfriend Lucy and one of the teenagers who went missing was Cope's sister. A series of bizarre things keep happening to various people that were at that camp that summer and long buried secrets are being unearthed.

I found myself gripped by the plot; the pace never slackened and there were a few surprises thrown in to keep me on my toes. I really enjoy Harlan Cobens books but this has to be one of the best, in my opinion. Loved it!

Jen Yay! Thanks for the review. Whenever you come across an audiobook you loved, please let me know. They're great to listen to on my iPod when I'm out walking with Hannah.
