This is the first Harlan Coben novel that I have read, and I really loved it.

Grace Lawson finds an unexpected photograph while picking up her photos at the PhotoMat. Curious, she shows the photo to her husband, and then their whole lives are turned upside down. Her husband, Jack leaves the house, but doesn't return. Grace heads to the police station, when she receives a suspicious phone call from Jack. She knows something isn't right, but she is afraid to let the police get involved...so her own investigation begins...and life will never be the same.

If you like twists and turns, then READ THE BOOK. ( )

Another hit out of the park for Coben. His stand-alone books always grab me from the beginning and make me hold on for the bumpy ride to the surprising end. ( )

Cobun readers know they can expect a complicated, often convoluted story with many characters and plot twists, and this is no exception. Cobum misses the mark with this one, however because he has created a too complicated and too convoluted story which is not only difficult to follow, but illogical as well as unrealistic, and, at times, a bit boring. I was disappointed. ( )

Another excellent book by the master of Mystery and Suspense, not read one book by Harlan Coben I haven't really enjoyed. Like all his books it's almost impossible to work out who did it, and there are twists galore, even twists on the twists- definitely multiple layers in this book. Some great dialogue within this book as well, including some dialogue that make you laugh out loud! Look out for the great line about pooping your pants and the night lite! ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0451213203, Mass Market Paperback)

An ordinary snapshot causes a mother’s world to unravel in an instant. After picking up her two young children from school, Grace Lawson looks through a newly developed set of photographs. She finds an odd one in the pack: a mysterious picture from perhaps twenty years ago, showing four strangers she can’t identify. But there is one face she recognizes—that of her husband, from before she knew him.

When her husband sees the photo that night, he leaves their home and drives off without explanation. She doesn’t know where he’s going, or why he’s leaving. Or if he’s ever coming back. Nor does she realize how dangerous the search for him will be. Because there are others interested in both her husband’s past and that photo, including Eric Wu: a fierce, silent killer who will not be stopped from finding his quarry, no matter who or what stands in his way.

Her world turned upside down, filled with doubts about her herself and marriage, Grace must confront the dark corners of her own tragic past she struggles to learn the truth, find her husband, and save her family.
