Publisher's Summary

Marc Seidman awakens to find himself in an ICU, hooked up to an IV, his head swathed in bandages. Twelve days earlier, he had had an enviable life as a successful surgeon, living in a peaceful suburban neighborhood with his beautiful wife and a baby he adored. Now he lies in a hospital bed, shot by an unseen assailant. His wife has been killed, and his 6-month-old daughter, Tara, has vanished. But just when his world seems forever shattered, something arrives to give Marc a new hope: a ransom note.

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).

©2003 Harlan Coben; (P)2003 Penguin Audiobooks and Books on Tape, Inc.

What the Critics Say

    Story
    "Worth the listen but not Coben's best"

    I've been a Harlan Cobin fan for years but this one isn't his best, at least not for me. Not bad just not great. I listen to my books when I'm in the yard and when I'm really into one I continue once I get in. Not the case with this one. I hate that I missed the thrill of the intrigue but maybe next time. Doesn't throw me off and I'll listen to the next one.

    I do hope he'll kick in with his warped sense of humor. At times he reminds me a bit of Nelson Demille who defines sarcastic, warped humor.

    "Good story; great narration"
    Any additional comments?

    This book was well written. The author gave enough detail about the critical pieces that would eventually tie the story together without being to cliche or giving away the mystery. The narrator did a superb job, one of the best I've heard.

    Story
    "Quite an adventure"
    Where does No Second Chance rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Probably in the top 25%.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It's a good mystery with a broad spectrum of characters and exciting twists.


    What about Scott Brick’s performance did you like?

    Scott Brick is always a good narrator. Unlike several male narrators I've heard, his female characters are convincing, and he has a laid-back sense to his narration that lets you cruise undistracted through the story.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yep.

    "Coben/Brick always 5 stars"

    It was faced paced with well developed characters and intriguing plot. One of those books where you are wanting to finish and have all the puzzle pieces in place but also not ready to say goodbye to the characters.

    "Longggg story."

    Story took a really long time to tell. Some twists towards the end that I didn't like. Not the worst book of ever read but not the best Harlan Corbin I've ever read either

    "Great mystery and suspense novel."

    I loved the novel. It kept me interested throughout the entire thing. The introduction to characters was great and brought more to the developing story. I would definitely recommend it.

    Story
    "EXTREMELY INTRIGUING PLOT!!!"

    This story had so many characters and yet it was easy to follow who was who at all times. The in-depth story kept me guessing and held my attention constantly to the very end. I had a hard time putting the story aside to do things that I needed to do!

    And SCOTT BRICK!!!! I've said it before and I'll say it AGAIN! He's on the very top of my favorite narrators list! He alone can draw me to a book. My next listen is another by Harlan Coden and I'm delighted that Scott Brick is the narrator once again.

    I recommend this book to anyone that loves a good mystery. SO worth the credit!!!
