Eleven years earlier, Will's older brother Ken became the prime suspect in the rape & murder of Will's ex-girlfriend. However, Ken disappeared before any arrest or conviction could take place, and he hasn't been seen since, leaving his family to suspect that he's likely dead. Now, as Will's mother lies on her deathbed, she alludes to the fact that Ken may be alive. Almost simultaneously, Will's current girlfriend disappears out of the blue. And so begins his quest to find answers to both disappearances, which oddly enough, are connected.

I've read a few Harlan Coben thrillers and have enjoyed them for the most part. I read this one on audio, an abridged version, and as far as abridgments go, I felt that it captured the meat of the story, flowed well, and didn't feel too choppy. Several surprises and twists in this one, which made it enjoyable. Overall, a good story. ( )

Wow, a great murder mystery with lots of twists and turns right to the end. Loved it! ( )

Not under the guise of a novel or any other genre that pretends to be of high quality - this is a book for fun reading. As such, it doesn't have to particularly mind thinking stimulating of its plot (although it's doing just that), enough that it makes you hold your breath for an hour or two — great tension and easy to read.

What a train ride! Just when you think you have it figured out, you are left second-guessing yourself. This is my favorite Harlan Coben book yet. ( )
