I've been a HUGE fan of Coben's since the moment I read him. I like his easy style, his dialogue, and the fact that (although a suspension of belief is necessary to enjoy almost any and every good work of fiction), most of his plots seemed not-too-far fetched.

However, I wasn't totally sold on this book, or his last one, Miracle Cure (which I thought was the worst of his I've read to date.) It seems to me that his development of character and plot are sort of slap-dash. There isn't as much care, attention, or development to his writing. Maybe it's a case of trying to please too many people. These last two books seemed devoid of any depth and intrigue.

I won't stop reading his work... just probably have to (sadly) lower my expectations. *Sigh*...
