In David Beck, Harlan Coben, the author of the popular series starring sports agent Myron Bolitar (Darkest Fear et al.) has created a protagonist who shares many of Bolitar's best qualities--he's a decent, generous, gentle guy whose loyalty to those he loves is unquestionable. So when he discovers that people he was close to may be responsible not only for Elizabeth's murder but also the "accidental" death of his father, Beck's sense of betrayal is as understandable to the reader as his uncharacteristically violent reaction. Coben is a skillful storyteller with a gift for creating likable characters caught up in circumstances that illuminate their complex emotional lives and deep humanity. This should be the thriller that breaks this talented writer out of the mystery genre and earns him the recognition he deserves. --Jane Adams --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This was my first Harlan Coben novel and I enjoyed it enough to read it in three days. If I didn't have to sleep, eat and go to work in between, I likely would have read it one... Read morePublished on Oct. 19 2006 by R. Hansen
I finished this, my first Harlan Coben book, in less than 48 hours. Once I started it, that's all I wanted to do, solve the mystery. I read 10-12 books a month, mainly mysteries. Read morePublished on July 5 2004 by lovz2read
This was my first Coben book and I've been a fan of his since. Highly recommend this read as a fast paced, twist and turn read. I never saw the ending coming!Published on June 23 2004 by PeanutyyO
