The main character was believable and made a great storyline. I didn't know what to expect
The Reader seemed pretentious and sluggish. Every word seemed very over dramatized and made the first quarter of the book easily something that was able to be turned off. I'm glad I didn't though.
I loved the narration and the writing. The prose was unobtrusive, clear, direct, and moved the story along quickly. Dialog was very natural. The mystery - where is Natalie and what happened to her - was incredibly enticing! Well done!
Absolutely! I could not wait to listen to more of this book every time I had to stop - I simply loved it.
Jake Sanders was the main protagonist and my favorite - well drawn and real. I loved his devotion to Natalie, even after six years of... nothing!
I would have done so if I could stop life and get off for a while - yes, it was that good!
This was my first Scott Brick (narrator) novel, and I found myself completely enamored with his style and interpretation. Bravo! It also was my first Harlan Coben novel - I will be after more books in his stable shortly!
This was a good suspenseful thriller with lots of twists and turns. The protagonist finds out his one true love's husband died so he decides to go to the funeral in hopes of seeing her again after six years have passed. What he finds at the funeral takes him on a long and wild ride. I never really knew where it was going because the direction kept changing. I liked it!
I don't listen to Harlan Coben expecting great literature, but this is possibly one of the dumbest books I've purchased on this site in nearly a decade. From the extremely repetitive writing (if you took out all the sentences where the lead character declares he loves another character using nearly identical language every single time, the book would be five pages long. Add in the overly dramatic narrator and the whole presentation was just ridiculous. I've listened to a bunch of other Coben books and this one feels like he just wrote it for the paycheck. Harlan, you can do better!

This is just the 2nd novel of Harlan Coben that I have finished and I have come to like his convoluted plot and poetic style. The opening pages are somewhat disconnected and as you breeze through the half of the book, the suspense builds up, ultimately amusing you with an unexpected but happy ending.
It is worth the time listening to his books, much more so when Scott Brick reads them for us. He too is in my topnotch narrators.
no - the narrarator was very irritating to me
The main character was discribed as a "lumber jack" sort of guy - 6'5" & was a bouncer at one time. The narrator sounded like a whiney little guy that couldn't fight his way out of a paper bag. There were times I wanted to just turn it off, but the story line was really good and so I finished the book.
This is one you should READ for yourself.
From the first paragraph I literally could not put this down. I listened to it driving, working, relaxing. What an awesome book!
I loved the narrator. Pleasing voice, just enough inflection without overdoing it.
I have always loved to read and just discovered Aubible which I am also loving.
I did not read the print version.
At first, i thought this was going to be similar to Tell No One, also by Harlan Coben. I will admit, I was very disappointed. Thank goodness I was wrong.
I had only listened to one other book narrated by Scott Brick and the story was so awful, it completely took away from the talents of Mr. Brick. I very much enjoyed this narration. He is excellent when it comes to multiple voices.
Yes, I pretty much did. If sleep wasnt so necessary, I probably would have.
This was an excellent book. I had heard and read so many positive reviews of this book so I decided to try it myself. I am so glad I did. I enjoyed it tremendously.
This seemed to be a throwaway
He didn't have much to work with
I jwould have started over
This book was strange. I thought I liked it at times, but it was so not believable that it was hard to take in overall. I guess it was an okay read and performance, but I wouldn't recommend it.
