A friend gave me this book as a parting gift. It was intended as a 'in-flight' book but didn't quite make it as having started it, I couldn't rest until I had finished it. What attracted me most to this book was the characters - wholly believable and human with flesh as well as bones. Paul Copeland's dilemma of ethics (tell a lie to save a friend/leave the past buried or dig it up etc) was thought provoking and caused true thrill, mostly because these are questions we all face (though perhaps in a less dramatic setting) at some point in our lives if not on a daily basis. Coben's style and language was also enjoyable. I went to the bookstore to purchase some of his other books but found that the blurbs on the back didn't catch me - this is not normally a genre that I would seek out so will be interested to see reviews of the other books as well.
