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
    "Painfully Stupid"
    What disappointed you about No Second Chance?

    A decent mystery brought down by the dumbest protagonist I've come across in a while. Not once, throughout the entire book, does he do anything plausible. The mystery kept me interested and listening, but the behavior of the characters was just painful.


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

    "I'd like to change the ending"

    The story was fine up until the disappointing and hard to believe ending. Scott Brick is great, as always.

    Story
    "So slow"

    I thought this book would be very fast pace and have lots of twists and turns. It did not the incident would happen and they would have to repeat it to the police and then to friends and it was like the same story is being told over and over and you just want to get on with the story. I am a real fan of this author but this is the Book I like the least

    "great reading and great writing"

    the story is an example of great writing and great reading. It held my interest although in a couple of places it was a little slow. It always rebounded with a Twist or a turn.

    "Excellent in all ways"

    Another very compelling story. This is proof that an excellent story can be told without a lot of foul language. Thanks. I appreciate that.

    "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.
