'Brilliant ... Coben proves why he's one of the top crime writers in the world' Daily Mirror. Harlan Coben is now widely recognised as one of the thriller genre's biggest stars. He is a No.1 Sunday Times bestseller, a New York Times bestseller, and had three titles in the 2004 Guardian fastseller chart. Harlan Coben always receives incredible reviews: 'If you read only one American novel this year make sure that it is this one' Sunday Express. 'Superbly plotted, pulling you down unexpected by-ways with apparent ease. This is Coben's great ability. He can twist a plot (usually involving dark secrets from the past) in ways that leave you breathless' Daily Telegraph. 'Dark, twisted and gripping' Daily Mail. 'Coben's genius - and his most frustrating trick - is that he makes it all seem so obvious, then kicks your legs away before the end' FHM. 'One of the most sheerly entertaining and accomplished writers in the genre' Daily Express.
Harlan Coben was the first ever author to win all three major crime awards in the US, and has established a best-selling series of crime novels starring his powerful creation, Myron Bolitar. He currently lives in New Jersey with his wife and four children.
