it was ok

** spoiler alert ** I keep alternating between two and three stars for this book. It's a fairly enjoyable read but definitely not as good as Coben's more current books. The real problem that I have with this book is that the story is just so incredibly implausible. A star basketball marries a woman he loves (who happens to be a top supermodel and incredible business woman), and then on their honeymoon find out that she's actually his sister. So what does he do? Fakes his own death in Australia with the help of his police officer friend from Boston, has full plastic surgery to have his face, hair and voice changed and then ends up playing for the NBA again with the same team?!? Then in the end it turns out that they aren't brother and sister and live happily ever after. It's just so ridiculous.
