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)
I WILL be back to listen to more by Harlan Corben. I LOVE Scott Brick as the reader oof the books I listen to. This story had so many twists and turns, you never really knew who was the bad guy and who wasn't, not even after you thought it was all spelled out for you, another twist. I will be back for more, kept me guessing, and I usually figure most of them out right away, not this one.
I liked Mark, because he told the story.
I really enjoyed the story and the way it keeps you guessing all the way to the end. This book is just a little dated.
I listen to books to be entertained... my favorite genre is a "Legal Thriller" I have actually been a member since 2001. Love my books!
I love the mystery of this book. It kept me guessing until the very end.
Professional woman, reading constantly
I LOVE Harlan Coben's storytelling abilities. LOVE Scott Brick as a reader. The two of these guys combined, makes for page burning story. Not unpredictable, but I still had difficulties putting it down to sleep, eat, etc. Well worth the purchase!
This story had it all....Romance, plot, twists, turns, the evilest of villains and more betrayals than expected. Marc a seemingly regular guy, whose heroic tendency's came from his deep love for his daughter. It was a enthralling read from beginning to the unexpected end.
I really like how believable this story is. The main character is very real and easy to identify with. A missing child is everyone's worse nightmare! Coben makes you stop and consider how you would handle similar situations if life presented them.
Coben is well known for his plot twists and he certainly did not disappoint in 'No Second Chance.' I think I actually said 'you have got to be kidding!' out load on more than one occasion when reading this book.
I enjoy Scott Brick's voice. He is a consistent narrator who definitely adds to the story.
I was really disappointed at how thick headed the main character was. I started rooting for the bad guys to take him out and end his suffering. There were too many little story lines going on in this book, it was disconnected. I didn't really care at all for this and will really have to debate whether or not I would listen to another one by this author.
I like the narrator, I have listened to several books that he has done so I know the problem here was all storyline.
The story was entertaining and had lots of twist, liked how I couldn't figure it out, the detectives weren't very good though...lol They should have looked into the wife more or at least her phone records especially her call right after the shooting??
I'll be looking forward to reading more books by this author!
I'm relatively new to audio books, so I'm no expert, but I enjoyed this book! Never read anything by Coben before, but I will again in the future. Good purchase!
Couldn't wait to see what curve ball was coming next. Absolutely one of my favorites, start listening and it will grab you and keep you guessing as to how it all plays out. Great entertainment
