Sports rep Myron Bolitar is surprised when he gets a visit from his first love, Emily Downing. Emilys 13-year-old son, Jeremy, has an acute form of anemia that can turn deadly unless he receives a bone marrow transplant. The national registry has found a suitable donor but the donor has disappeared and Emily would like Myron to find him. Moreover, Emily reveals a secret shes been carrying for nearly 14 yearsJeremy is Bolitars son.
Bolitar barely has time to absorb the news that he has a son, let alone a dying one, but knows he must find the missing donor before its too late. He soon finds himself involved with a wealthy, self-destructive family, the feds, a series of kidnappings that may or may not have occurred, and a diabolically evil mind.
Harlan Coben has outdone himself with DARKEST FEAR, the thrill read of the season. The plot is a nail-biter, and Coben explores the relationships between fathers and sons as keenly as he plots suspense. (Jun., 368 pp., $6.50Hardcover published June 2000)
