Will Klein always worshiped his older brother Ken, but that was in the past. Over 10 years ago, Will's ladylove was killed and Ken was accused of the crime. Ken promptly vanished, never to be seen again.

Will gets absolute proof that Ken is alive but has no idea as to his whereabouts. Before Will can completely digest the info about his brother, his new love, Sheila Rogers, vanishes into the night, and the FBI question Will about her, claiming her past does not bear scrutiny.

Now Will is faced with two mysteries that become all the more puzzling when he learns they're connected. Worse still, someone is determined that Will never discover the truth about anything.

GONE FOR GOOD is a real pulse pounder, an action thriller that takes off at a roar. Coben provides readers with twists and turns aplenty and quirky characters that will remind fans of his Myron Bolitar series. As always, he's a master at wringing every emotion from readers. (May, 342 pp., $23.95)
