Both a white-knuckle thriller and a story about the loyalty of old friends and the bond between parent and child, No Second Chance is another masterpiece from an author who writes "suspense at its finest" (Jeffrey Deaver).

"No Second Chance demonstrates that Harlan Coben is one of the finest contemporary suspense writers and that Scott Brick is among the elite audiobook narrators." (AudioFile)
Harlan Coben is surely a favorite of mine and has not let me down with
No Second Chance kept me on the edge of my seat. It was an easy listen with awesome narration (Scott Brick) that sucked me in from the very start and kept me there till the end.
I did short this book 1 star and my reasoning for this was the few times throughout the book that I felt were either a bit predictable and/ or unrealistic. That said, I do find it fascinating that Coben can create an ordinary character and put them in extraordinary circumstances all while keeping the reader believing the unbelievable things that are happening. Not an easy thing to do:0)
I really thought Scott brick ruined this so so book. His characterization were over the top and generalized. I skipped though to the end just to get it over with. Don't waste a credit on this absurd performance.
I'm not a frequent reader of fiction, but this one was well worth the read. I couldn't figure out who did what to who until the very end.
This was the first book I have read/listened that Harlan Coben has written! I can't wait to listen to the others he has written!
I was so often who did this and why. What a tangled web of craziness and twisted loyalty. Do you move on? Do you live with the guilt? Do you decide to be happy for a second chance? Or do you forgive and forget? Really left me wondering what I would do. Would I ever be able to trust again?
Hard to stop listning.
Very easy to feel for Marc Seidman,
Excellent book, I'll have to try another of byHarlan Coben.
I love listening to the narrator Scott Brick. His performance keeps me on the edge of my seat.
This book was a huge waste of time. I used to like Harlan Coben but haven't read one of his books in a long time and will probably avoid any future attempts. What a tedious slog this one was. It seemed to have been written by a child and lacked any sense of believability. Can't remember rolling my eyes more while listening to a book. Just wanted it to be over. And the over-the-top emoting style of Scott Brick is always abrasive. Save your money and try something else.
