Publisher's Summary

Some mistakes can change your life forever. For Matt Hunter, that mistake came in one terrible moment when his attempt to help a friend and stop a fight resulted in an accidental death. Matt was convicted of manslaughter and sent to prison. Time that his peers spent in college, Matt endured behind bars.

Now, nine years after his release from prison, his innocence long forgotten, he's an ex-con who takes nothing for granted. With his wife Olivia pregnant, and the two of them closing on a house in his hometown, things are looking up. Until the day Matt gets a shocking, inexplicable video call from Olivia's phone. And in an instant, the unraveling begins.

A mysterious man who begins tailing Matt turns up dead. A beloved nun is murdered. And local and federal authorities, including homicide investigator Loren Muse, a childhood schoolmate of Matt's with a troubled past of her own, see all signs pointing to a former criminal with one murder already under his belt...Matt Hunter. Unwilling to lose everything for a second time, Matt and Olivia are forced outside the law in a desperate attempt to save their future together.

An electrifying thrill-ride of a novel that peeks behind the white picket fences of suburbia, The Innocent is at once a twisting, turning, emotionally-charged story and a compelling tale of the choices we make and the repercussions that never leave us.

What the Critics Say

"[Coben's] best book to date." (Publishers Weekly)
"As usual with Coben, an intriguing start, hinging on one out-of-whack technological trick, hurtles into a fast-paced hunter-and-hunted drama. First-rate." (Booklist)

    "This is a great book"

    This book was incredible. I found myself hanging on by every word. Most of all the narration was done so skillfully it was an art.

    "This book had me from the beginning"

    From the first few mintues I was sucked in. Narration was very good and story was powerful. I felt a whole range of strong emotions that did not let up till well after the story was over.

    Excellent book by a superb author.

    "Impressively Crafted Mystery"

    This is the first Coben book I have read. I was very impressed by this expertly crafted mystery. The characters were all well developed and believable. The story line was full of twists and turns and had surprises until the last chapter. I would highly recommend this book.
