Publisher's Summary

Theirs was a marriage made in tabloid heaven, but no sooner had supermodel Laura Ayars and Celtics star David Baskin said “I do” than tragedy struck. While honeymooning on Australia’s Great Barrier Reef, David went out for a swim - and never returned.

Now widowed and grieving, Laura has a thousand questions and no answers. Her search for the truth will draw her into a web of lies and deception that stretches back 30 years - while on the court at the Boston Garden, a rookie phenom makes his spectacular debut....

    "interesting"

    Mr. Coben mentions this is one of his first books and if you haven't heard/read any of this recent books then don't read this one. I thought this was well written, a lot of the story was predictable but the main climatic turn was a surprise, just like all the other stories I've read of his. I am curious about a couple of things in the story but can't really mention it without ruining part of the story for someone else.

    "Slow story with painful detail"

    The author dragged out the story forever. General story was interesting but would not recommend it.

    "Outrageous but great!"

    I thought the story line was rather outrageous but it held my interest from the start. The ending kept me guessing and was a complete surprise. As usual, Scott Brick does an amazing performance with the narration!

    What did you love best about Play Dead?

    Play Dead is a very original and unique story. Gripping, it holds your interest throughout the book. Frankly it is one of the best books, in all aspects, that I had the pleasure of reading -- and in this case, listening to.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I truly liked all of the characters. Together, they made the book come alive!


    What about Scott Brick’s performance did you like?

    Fantastic performance. Scott Brick conveys the emotions and personalities of the characters. I will look for more audiobooks performed by Scott.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Absolutely! It was extremely hard to put down -- but I tried to pace myself.

    "Different from Harlen Coben's or her books"

    while it's different, it's still a great read. A fun who done it for all.

    Story
    "the suspense was killing me!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Play Dead to be better than the print version?

    I say yes the audio is better only because I cannot get a set amount of time without interruptions to read a book. When its audio, I can listen while I'm at work just like others listen to their music. I'm able to cover more ground with the book---but only if I like the narrator. If they have an accent or have too old a voice or pause at the wrong time, it is hard for me to get in to the book


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    yes!! I love this author and I know he said to not judge based off this book, but I for the first time wanted to skip to the end just to find out what was going on! I couldn't get there fast enough. It was so exciting!! I love how he switches points of views in the book to make sure we see how each character is thinking. I love it


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The scene between Mark practicing on the court and David coming out to confront him. I don't want to give away that scene but I loved it.


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

    I loved when "true love" found out it wasn't a "forbidden" love


    Any additional comments?

    I love this author, haven't found a book I haven't loved yet and only had 1 bad narrator. Keep up the good work!!

    "Long but I loved it"

    I have not read or listen to all of Harlan Coben books, but I am working on it. This book was long, perhaps dragged out a bit but I loved the suspense and the story was great. Also liked the narrator . Now on to the next booked regardless of my husbands complaining that I was getting carried away, so who needs sleep.
