'The modern master of the hook and twist' Dan Brown
'One of the world's finest thriller writers' Peter James
A suburban wife and mother of two - with a dark and dangerous past.
A promising photographer who now panders to celebrity-obsessed rich kids.
A detective who can't let go of a cold case . . .
Three ordinary people, who discover that when the past refuses to stay buried, the American dream can be a nightmare . . .
Coben's latest stand-alone thriller, a sophisticated look at the intersections of three people leading lives of quiet desperation, is vividly brought to life by Scott Brick's skillful, subtle narration. With multiple protagonists, it's essential that the narrator give each of them a distinct voice, and Brick rises to the occasion. He is especially good at matching his pacing to the mood of the text. With a single line of narration, e.g., "With a heavy sigh, Detective Broome approached the doomed house and rang the bell," Brick makes the listener feel what is implied: the slow tread of the policeman, obsessed by an unsolved disappearance and weary from the guilt he carries over his continued failure to bring closure to the family of the missing man. Coben takes his time setting the stage for the drama that will unfold, and Brick's unhurried approach is a perfect match for the material. A Dutton hardcover.
