You've lost your daughter. She's addicted to drugs and to an abusive boyfriend. And she's made it clear that she doesn't want to be found. Then, by chance, you see her playing guitar in Central Park. But she's not the girl you remember. This woman is living on the edge, frightened, and clearly in trouble. You don't stop to think. You approach her, beg her to come home. She runs. And you do the only thing a parent can do: you follow her into a dark and dangerous world you never knew existed.  Before you know it, both your family and your life are on the line.

Good story and pretty par for the course of you know and/or are familiar with Coben’s work. Fast paced and always leaving something of intrigue and mystery to end a section. Wraps up with a few unforeseen twists and does well to untie all plot knots... :) if you enjoy Harlen’s work, you’ll enjoy this!

Maeve Merritt chafes at the rigid rules at her London boarding school for “Upright Young Ladies.” When punishment forces her to sort through the trash, she finds a sardine tin that houses a foul-tempered djinni with no intention of submitting to a schoolgirl as his master. Soon an orphan boy from the charitable home next door, a mysterious tall man in ginger whiskers, a disgruntled school worker, and a take-no-prisoners business tycoon are in hot pursuit of Maeve and her magical discovery.

Just to be clear, I’m a near 40-year-old male who wouldn’t typically try this kind of book...but let’s be honest now...it was purely spectacular! The story itself was exceptionally well done, the dialogue has many laugh out loud moments (even some tear inducing moments if I can be completely honest, and why not, I seem to be already), and the narration just brought the whole thing together perfectly! Didn’t want this one to end but had a wonderful time from start to finish! Do yourself a favor and listen to this book, you won’t regret it!! :)
