'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.

About the Author

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.

Reviews

Last seen in bestseller Coben's Darkest Fear (2000), Myron Bolitar, former basketball star (Boston Celtics) turned sports and entertainment agent and occasional knight in shining armor, is back in fighting form in his action-packed eighth thriller. For the past six years Myron has been leading a quiet life, much of it at his parents' old house in Livingston, N.J. A new girlfriend, Ali Wilder, a 9/11 widow, is helping to bring him out of his shell. Concerned that Ali's teenage daughter, Erin, and Erin's friend, Aimee Biel, might fall in with the wrong crowd, Myron gives them his contact information in case either of them feels she needs help. Aimee later calls him in the middle of the night for a lift to a friend's house, on condition that her request remain a secret. When Aimee turns up missing in circumstances mirroring those surrounding another vanished girl, Bolitar himself becomes a suspect in her disappearance and must use his wits and martial arts skills to uncover the truth. Coben fans will find much to enjoy in this well-crafted suspense novel, which has a startling final twist. (Apr. 25) Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

A promise made on a whim comes back to haunt sports and entertainment agent Myron Bolitar. Worrying about two neighborhood girls riding with drunk drivers, Myron vows to help them anytime and anywhere as long as they call. Keeping his word a few nights later, he drops off one of the young girls in a suburban neighborhood, and she promptly vanishes. Her angry parents question his motives, and eventually so do the police. Myron swears to the missing girl's mother that he will find her daughter, even if she doesn't want to be found. The return of reluctant hero Myron (Darkest Fear) after a six-year absence will be applauded by his fans and enjoyed by newcomers. Abandoning the expected thriller elements, Coben has written a compelling drama that examines the power of honesty and determination to do the right thing. This should be shortlisted for major awards. Promise to read it. For all fiction collections.-Jeff Ayers, Seattle P.L. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
