A very creative way to keep you on edge. It's like trying to solve a hand full of detective cases, in one story. I liked it, some thing's could have been left out but I guess it set us up for some confusion.
Some of the logic in the book is poor. Attempts to build suspense with week devices. Like the way the hero (a DA) is treated by the police with very little incriminating circumstances. Didn't make sense. This type of bad logic crops up in other places in the book.
The ones that stick out are representative of the bad logic mentioned above.
No. I wish I had listened to the preview first because I don't like his style and have struggled with another book by him. He has a clipped and almost bored sounding way of reading. It isn't convincing when he tries to be dramatic. It's a bit like listening to Captain Kirk. This style infests his dialogue as well making his characters often sound the same as each other.
This was my first book from this author. I was impressed with the style - amd Scott Brick always does a great job narrating. if you like a good mystery, this is worth a credit!
So many twists and turns. Surprises up to the end. Great story.
Paul, of course! He wasn't a perfect character... he had flaws... but he was likeable and easy to relate to.
Paul! Although I did enjoy the stripper who accused the frat boys of rape.
Absolutely! It was hard to turn it off.
This was my first book by Harlan Coben but I've been a huge fan of Scott Brick for a long time. I want to read more Coben!

Well structured, well developed characters, generally well paced plot. Yep, that's 3 'wells.
The ending fell short, but author had plenty of logical twists. To be honest, I hit the epilogue and felt cheated. I needed the big punchy ending, and it wasn't there for me.
Still, I would recommend this read.
The line: "I said nothing" was repeated at least fifty times. If not that line, then a variation of it: she said nothing; he said nothing. It took me out of the story which was engaging until it's convoluted ending. The narrator's performance bothered me too, so full of conviction on every other line exhausted me. I like Harlan's books but this wasn't my favorite.
Best book I've listened to!!! In the beginning the narrator sounds like William Shattner, " by sounding choppy, but this only lasts for a couple chapters. Awesome story, well worth suffering through first chapters. So many twists and turns.
