  • It's not Myron Bolitar--but it's good! Jul 21, 2010
    by robroy

    Dr. Marc Seidman is a humanitarian, a plastic surgeon who travels the world, repairing the most horrendous wounds and birth defects for people who couldn't afford him in a million years. Who would want to attempt (and narrowly miss succeeding at) killing such an admirable man; to murder his wife, and abduct his six-month old daughter? I read a lot of mystery/thriller novels, and have to say I never figured this one out. The last chapter and epilogue were both stunners. Highly recommended, if you like your mysteries truly puzzling, and your heroes emotional and sensitve. Harlan Coben knows how to write 'em, for sure.

    Lots of twists and turns. I was very surprised with the ending. All of Coben's books are great.

  • Dare you to put it down Mar 9, 2008
    by Francesca

    This author rarely gives you a totally wrapped-up, happy-ending, global solution. And the guilt seems to seep around mightily. But maybe that is his realistic tribute to the human condition. This plot is very convoluted: a couple of cops zoom off on "solutions" that--of course--make a suspect of the protagonist, and new people burst onto the scene just when you have almost absorbed the presence of the original crop of characters. It's fun to reconstruct the journey in your mind once you know its ending, and oh what a wild ride to get there. The first person narrator is both flawed and sympathetic, as he goes through every conceivable twist and complication and ego-diversion to reach his kidnapped daughter. There are a couple of wierdos straight out of Dickens, a manic-depressive wife and a delightful gun-toting farmer with a web bride. Murder, kidnapping, male bonding, and the slipped stitches of an old romance--the old cliche fits: hard to put down.

    A great book and fun to read, Coben brings you hard and fast into the story and makes you lose your ability to put the book down. A great book from start to finish
