Publisher's Summary

Theirs was a marriage made in tabloid heaven, but no sooner had supermodel Laura Ayars and Celtics star David Baskin said “I do” than tragedy struck. While honeymooning on Australia’s Great Barrier Reef, David went out for a swim - and never returned.

Now widowed and grieving, Laura has a thousand questions and no answers. Her search for the truth will draw her into a web of lies and deception that stretches back 30 years - while on the court at the Boston Garden, a rookie phenom makes his spectacular debut....

    "Crazy twists"

    I loved the twists and that it had you guessing from chapter 1. These characters go to the extreme to protect or keep family close. Harlen Coben didn't disappoint.

    "Too early Coben"

    This book was apparently written near the beginning of Coben's career, and it shows. I'm a fan of Coben's work -- I like his intricate plots and constant surprises -- but his writing has always been a little lurid and overdone. This one is even more so -- the whole thing is painfully overwritten and the prose is very clunky. I winced a lot at his constructions. The book is at least two hours longer than it should be just from clunky writing. Which is too bad, because it's a neat story -- Coben should have picked it up and re-written it before releasing this early work. Scott Brick does the best anyone could at getting through the thickets of overwriting, but it's painful. Pick a different Coben.

    "Great Book"

    This is the 1st Coben book I've figured even half of the ending! I don't know how much that's saying since this is his first book as he states in the prologue. This is the 4th or 5th Coben book I've read/listened too and the endings were always a complete shock and this one was still half a surprise. He is a great suspense novelist!

    "Good book but too long & repetitious!"

    I heard that this is his first book & his newer books are much better. Everyone has to start somewhere.
    I Almost quit reading it many times. The book should have been 10 chapters shorter. He went over and over the same things and strung them out way too long. The plot was a bit preposterous but hey, it's fiction. I will give his newer books a try.

    "Long but not bad"

    Enjoyed - twists and turns with lots of double motives.
    Dry at spots- but author made up in others.
    Just love listening to Scott brick!
