Not Coben's best. Too blatant qnd telegraphing. Only a few genuine surprises although the end is twisty fun. Still it felt cliche and predictable most of the way. It is a first novel though and his later books arr much better. Only for fans.

Brittany I would like to extend an invitation to you to join my goodreads group. My goal is to find an enjoyable place to visit to find all of the things you want in a group. We have a lot of group and buddy read options and are constantly adding more read & review opportunities, if you enjoy challenges and posting of free ebooks, as well as author participated discussions, then come on over to For Love of A Book, where every group matter has the power to help shape the group into the best it can be.
