Somehow, through all my reading, I had never had occasion to read anything by Harlan Coben.
That stops now.
I could NOT put this book down tonight, & finished this in a little over a day.
Can't wait to pick up another one by Coben. ( )

Having been in jail, Matt Hunter builds a new life for himself, but a video sent to his phone sends him on a search for the truth. Fast-paced with lots of twists. ( )

Excellent suspense and very different from his series books. Perfectly appropriate for high school readers as well. ( )

In memory of Stephen Z. Miller.

To those of us fortunate enough to have been his friend-we try to be thankful for the time we had, but it's so damn hard and to Steve's family, especially Jesse, Maya T, and Nico-when we're strong enough, we will talk about your father because he was the best man we've ever known.

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 045121577X, Mass Market Paperback)

Matt Hunter made a mistake when he was 20 years old and paid for it with a four-year stint in prison that left him with a determination never to be locked up again. Finally, his life is back on the promising track he was taking before he accidentally killed a man: He has a good job, a newly pregnant wife he adores, and is about to close on the home of their dreams. Then he gets a couple of bizarre photos on his cell phone that seem to show his wife in a compromising position with a black-haired stranger. But before he can sort out who sent the anonymous pictures and why, he's running from the law--especially from the cop who was his best friend in grade school, and a sharp young detective who's stepped right into the middle of an FBI investigation spurred by the discovery that a dead nun who wasn't who she claimed to be is somehow mixed up in Matt and Olivia Hunter's life. Coben deftly wields a complicated plot involving a missing stripper, a dead gangster, an incriminating videotape, and a couple of agents who aren't quite who they seem to be, while Hunter manages to hold onto his faith in Olivia despite her clouded past and uncertain future. Like all Coben's protagonists, (including the hero of his popular series starring sports agent turned detective Myron Bolitar) Hunter is a nice, middle-class New Jersey boy who's still the innocent of the title, despite the miscarriage of justice that sent him to prison. Or was it? That's the moral question at the heart of this tightly constructed thriller, which will no doubt shoot directly to the top of the bestseller list, and deservedly so. --Jane Adams
