    (1605)

    Three people living lives they never wanted, hiding secrets that even those closest to them would never suspect, will find that the past never truly fades away. Even as the terrible consequences of long-ago events crash together in the present and threaten to ruin lives, they will come to the startling realization that they may not want to forget the past at all.

    What disappointed you about Stay Close?

    The narration was overly dramatic and painful to listen to. Very staccato, as though nearly every word was followed by a period or worse, an exclamation point. The writing was at times eye-rolling with the corny one-liners and metaphors. I didn't find any of the characters likable. The ending was too drawn out with much "tell me what really happened" and no one could say what really happened without going into all their thoughts and feelings and baggage from the past.


    Has Stay Close turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Not at all. I've enjoyed other Harlan Coben books and other books in this genre.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Scott Brick?

    Almost anyone.


    What character would you cut from Stay Close?

    The mother-in-law seemed to be thrown in for no good reason. No one would think she had anything to do with anything, and alas, she didn't.
