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).

©2003 Harlan Coben; (P)2003 Penguin Audiobooks and Books on Tape, Inc.

    Story
    "My First Coben"

    Long time fan of Scott Brick, but now I am also a fan of Coben. I did guess some of the ending, but no way to predict it all. Kept me entertained and interested all the way through.

    Story
    "Very Entertaining and witty!"
    What did you love best about No Second Chance?

    It is hard to decide what I liked best because it was so good. The story line keep me 100% interested and the narration was amazing. Harlan Coben and Scott Brick make a good team.


    What other book might you compare No Second Chance to and why?

    It was similar to another HC book called Miracle Cure. They both had very surprise endings.


    Have you listened to any of Scott Brick’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes. I must have listened to over 20 of his books. He is my favorite narrator. It is hard to compare because he always does a fantastic job. There are times when I feel he makes the book and it would be boring without him.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I was particularly moved when Mark found his child and was deciding on whether to keep her or let the adopted couple keep her.


    Any additional comments?

    This book held my interest 100% of the time. The twists and turns were brilliant.

    Story
    "This book had a lot of Words!!"

    Ok. I know books have a lot of words but despite the taught suspense there was a lot of dialogue and maybe unnecessary. On the other hand, I may be desensitized by too much tv in my past where resolutions are within an hour or even 30 minutes. And on the third hand?! I would rather have too much dialogue than over descriptive filler.
    Brick is great. Liked the story and it was suspenseful. Maybe this would have been slightly better with the abridged version but the ending did get me a little emotional so maybe I needed all those Words anyway.

    "Intricate and extremely well crafted story"

    Flawlessly written plot and very captivating story. It will grab you and not let you go clear to the end. But be advised to pay attention and listen carefully in the last hour so to totally grasp what happened.
    Scott Brick is always great but he was exceptionally in this read.

    "Another great Harlan Coben book!"

    Another page turner! I enjoy audio books even more when Scot Brick is the narrator! I have added all of Coben's books to my wish list .
