Publisher's Summary

Marc Seidman awakens to find himself in an ICU, hooked up to an IV, his head swathed in bandages. Twelve days earlier, he had had an enviable life as a successful surgeon, living in a peaceful suburban neighborhood with his beautiful wife and a baby he adored. Now he lies in a hospital bed, shot by an unseen assailant. His wife has been killed, and his 6-month-old daughter, Tara, has vanished. But just when his world seems forever shattered, something arrives to give Marc a new hope: a ransom note.

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).

Wonderful

This is now one of my favorite books. I loved the story and the reader was great. I didn't want it to end. If you are debating on getting this book, don't hesitate any longer. There was action from beginning to end.

Solid mystery worth credit

Very good book. Scott Brick could read a restaurant menu and make it interesting. But worth your time if you like good mystery plot and ending.

Well Done

Harlan Coben always delivers an edge-of-your-seat thriller. His books tend to have a somewhat predictable storyline: introduce characters, show how great the lead characters are, terrible tragedy, lots of good story details, mislead the reader about who done it, reveal some evil person, nice conclusion often with a surprise twist. The formula works and consistently delivers a fun story.

Scott Brick is probably the best narrator out there!

Whiplash maneuvers!

so many twists and turns, ups and downs that my neck hurts....in a totally good way! In my opinion, Harlan Cobens best book. Have reàd it twice now and still love it. And of course, having it read by Scott Brick was an extra bonus....one of my favorite. narrators...a winning combination.
