    It's Change Year 25, a generation after high-energy technology died in a catastrophe most of the human race didn't survive. The children born after the Change are now starting to take center stage - and Whoever or Whatever was behind the Change itself may be taking a hand in their rivalries. An expedition has travelled to Nantucked across a strange and hostile continent to find some answers.

    Story

    the reader is droll; the story is NOT a stand-alone ... can't understand what is going on or what has gone before ... and even reading about it on different websites I'm STILL in the dark and bored to tears ... bored enough to see if I can get my $ back!

    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.
