    They’re one of the country’s most telegenic couples: beloved TV journalist Sara Lowell and New York’s hottest basketball star, Michael Silverman. Their family and social connections tie them to the highest echelons of the political, medical, and sports worlds - threads that will tangle them up in one of the most controversial and deadly issues of our time. In a clinic on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, a doctor has dedicated his life to eradicating a divisive and devastating disease. One by one, his patients are getting well.

    Story

    I have generally liked Coben's books, especially for their twists. This one is no exception in that department. However, I found it melodramatic and somewhat unsatisfying, unmitigated by Coben's own apology in the forward. As he notes, it is now dated. I'd say downright anachronistic. Too bad. Overall, I liked the plot.

    Without giving away any details, there wasn't satisfying resolution of some of the story lines - a little too much like real life, I suppose. I would have preferred a little less hand-wringing internal dialogue from his characters. Sometimes he just went overboard.
    If I was reading this review, as a Coben fan I wouldn't be dissuaded by it. So I know you are going to read (well, listen to) the book anyway, likely with the same eyebrow raises, silent groans and head-shakes I did, then you will look for another one of his books to listen to, also just like I did.

    Brick did a good job with his narration. I don't know how he kept all the voices straight!

    I don't think Coben needs to revisit this book, but I liked the detective characters.
