Six years have passed since Jake Fisher watched Natalie, the love of his life, marry another man. Six years of hiding a broken heart by throwing himself into his career as a college professor. Six years of keeping his promise to leave Natalie alone, and six years of tortured dreams of her life with her new husband, Todd.
But six years haven’t come close to extinguishing his feelings, and when Jake comes across Todd’s obituary, he can’t keep himself away from the funeral. There he gets the glimpse of Todd’s wife he’s hoping for...but she is not Natalie. Whoever the mourning widow is, she’s been married to Todd for almost two decades, and with that fact, everything Jake thought he knew about the best time of his life - a time he has never gotten over - is turned completely inside out.
As Jake searches for the truth, his picture-perfect memories of Natalie begin to unravel. Mutual friends of the couple either can’t be found or don’t remember Jake. No one has seen Natalie in years. Jake’s search for the woman who broke his heart, who lied to him, soon puts his very life at risk as it dawns on him that the man he has become may be based on a carefully constructed fiction.
Harlan Coben once again delivers a shocking novel that deftly explores the power of past love and the secrets and lies that such love can hide.

Couldn't wait to download latest Harlan Coben... Now wished I hadn't acted so quickly. Boring, dragging and nearly ridiculous.
Performance was too dramatic for a far-fetched storyline.
It ranks up at the top. I love mysteries and read/listen to many.
Funeral of the gangster.
One thing that is important about character construction is creating a character that you can relate with, and that is not quite the case with Pr. Fisher, the idea of man who cannot get over a girl for six years kept nagging me the whole story. He can sometimes become way too much melancholic to my taste, ans sometimes I could understand some decisons that made some situations much worst.
I must say that the main plot is interesting enough if not somewhat cliche in some parts.
The narrative is quite good and the author has a good flow. He can make the action scenes quite plausible for the situations and some quite remarkable characters, specially the supporting ones, but sometimes he could invest more in personality.
The narrator in competent and knows his business, he could just give little bit mote life to some characters.
I have been a Harlan Coben fan for many years but this book doesn't measure up. The story is a stretch and the tone "soapy".
He did but there were too many characters with only minor roles so at times I was confused.
The performance was over acted, the plot wasn't bad but it was over written. Many parts were repeated unnecessarily.
Yes, I really couldn't put it down and it kept me guessing and coming back for more.
yes, there were constant twists and turns, things to leave you hanging and questioning
His preformance, truly brought some realism to the events
When his best friend didn't shoot him despite his oath.
This book is really worth using a credit on or buying. In my oppinion.
Addicting, excellent and unpredictable! The characters and story are very well developed and continuously intriguing!

This book is packed with interesting twist and turns. The main character, a college professor acts more like a love sick teenager. Technically the book is well written but I feel the character development lacks a great deal. It is a romance novel, short and simple. I did not expect that. I think younger and more romantic inclined readers might enjoy this book more than I did.
The lead character acted like a love sick teenager.
I would not recommend this book one way or the other.
I have either listened to all of Harlan Coben's books. Until this one I loved them all. This one really dragged.
Scott Brick's performance was excellent as always.
I think the ending was complete and does not need another book added to it.
The book just seemed to drag on and on and on. The story line was good but there wasn't enough suspense to hold my interest.
it is one of my favorite that i have listened to in a while. the story was fantastic and keep me wanting more.
the final scene was my favorite
I love a good mystery. I thought that i had solved it early on in the story and was totally wrong towards the end. really keep me guessing the whole time. held my interest. I would strongly recommend this book
