    Not the best in this series by FAR, and the fact that the reader is sooooo sloooow makes it all the more tedius. If this were the first one of this series I'd purchased I would never get another

    Number-one New York Times best-selling author Harlan Coben set huge sales records with last year’s Six Years - and he’s poised to do it again in his next breathtaking stand-alone thriller. Harlan Coben, author of six consecutive instant number-one New York Times best sellers and a total of 24 award-winning, best-selling, and internationally acclaimed novels, returns with another ripped-from-real-life thriller full of impossibly high emotional stakes and the real-to-life characters for which he has become famous.

    Story

    This is the first time I've listened to a Harlan Coben story that was outside his normal Bolitar series and it is debatable that i will give him "another chance." His light-weight, simplistic narration style does not lend itself to this intentionally convoluted tale. Our main character is a disfunctional woman officer who is stuck in a 20 year old past. Suddenly "things" happen so she can unravel and resolve issues ... it is all very amateurish. At one point when people's lives are at stake and she is hot on a trail of kidnappers, she pulls off to make a personal side-trip, abandoning all that is urgent to "take care" of something that can clearly wait. Even the ending, which was supposed to leave us "wondering" instead gave me the feeling that the author just didn't know how to write a decent ending so he dropped it.

    I wanted to like the characters .... uh, not so much. A few smatterings of humanity here and there, but overall they are forgettable.
