Adrenalico e intricato al punto giusto. Un thriller che non si riesca a smettere di leggere fino alla fine. Bravissimo Coben. ( )

Well, I finally got around to reading this Coben book. It was a good story with lots of twists and turns, to keep me guessing. Dr. Seidman and his wife, Monica, have been shot and their 6 month old daughter, Tara, is missing. Monica is dead but Dr. Seidman is still hanging on to life.
