I'm an engineer that found "reading" great books to be an excellent way to spend time in the car. I hope others do too.

    In a bold novel, Harlan Coben (Tell No One) continues to stake out new ground in suspense, unleashing a haunting tale of secrets and betrayal...and of one man's search for his missing brother that spirals into a breakneck hunt for a killer, a victim, and the truth.

    Ed says: "Excellent twists and turns"
    "Good, but annoying character communication skills"
    Overall

    First off, some folks didn't like the reader's voice but once I got used to it (by the end of the first CD), I found it OK and thought the reader did a pretty good job with the various characters. I'd listen to another book read by the reader.

    The story has some twists and turns to be sure, but Will (and most everyone else) needed to attend a class on communication skills. I found myself wanting to wring his neck for being so stupid and not just talking straight up when asked a direct question. When he did answer questions, they were sarcastic when it didn't seem appropriate for the character.

    It also seemed a little unbelievable that his brother would never bother to contact him given how close they were supposed to be.

    Even with the frustrating dysfunctional communication skills of all the characters, I found myself sitting in the car listening "just a few minutes more" which is the sign of a good book.
