Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

At the start of this disappointing stand-alone from bestseller Coben (Promise Me), Paul "Cope" Copeland, acting county prosecutor for Essex County, N.J., and Lucy Gold, his long-lost summer camp love, are still haunted by a fateful night, decades earlier, when their nighttime tryst allowed some younger campers, including Cope's sister, to venture into the nearby forest, where they apparently fell victim to the Summer Slasher, a serial killer. Cope's intense focus on a high-profile rape prosecution of some wealthy college students shifts after one of the Slasher's victims, whose body was never found, turns up as a recent corpse in Manhattan, casting doubt on the official theory of the old case. Cope's own actions on that night again come under scrutiny, even as the highly placed fathers of the men he's prosecuting work to unearth as many skeletons as possible to pressure him into dropping the rape case. Less than compelling characters fail to compensate for a host of implausibilities. Hopefully, Coben will return to form with his next book. (Apr.)

This was my first Harlan Coben novel. Certainly not to be my last. A phenomenal writer, Coben grips you and won't let go until the very last page. I think his newer works (2000 and later) have slightly higher levels of sophistication and plot development. This will not stop me from reading the entire library of Coben novels.

I would suggest this as your first read of Harlan Coben. Enjoy the plot and his intricately drawn characters. And hold on to your hats...

When I started reading the book and Paul saw his father burying something, for the whole book I thought I had it figured out.

But as Harlan Coben does everytime he gets you thinking you know the answer and BOOM it never is the right answer.

I am totally in awe of this man's creative writing. To put a book together like this just can't be done by just anyone.

He is without a doubt the best author I have read in a long time.

In fact I just ordered another book by him.

Format: Hardcover
Just started reading Coben recently; I had recommended "Tourist in the Yucatan" to a friend. He already read "Tourist" and recommended I should also like Coben as thier styles were similar. Well, I took my friends advice and have become a big Harlen Coben fan! I like the way Coben takes seemingly ordinary people and then puts them in extraordinary circumstances. I think it makes for a much better thriller than the typical world weary cops and detectives or the super-human antics of some of the genre's characters. With Coben we real people in unreal or terrifying situations and that makes it seem all the more real. He also knows how to create emotional connections between the reader and the characters.

In this one we have a county prosecutor who is pulled into reliving an old tragedy from his youth and his loss of innocense. The story is ultimately about redemption. If you are looking for a smart thriller that does not follow the rules, I highly recommend this book!
