Coben again delivers a thriller you won’t be able to put down. Several compelling plots unfold at a rapid clip and build even more momentum as the frantic climax approaches. Some scenes are terrifying and gruesome, but ultimately the story is about different kinds of love — between parents and children, between friends, between lovers — and the unforeseen consequences of things people do in the name of love. Coben has set the stage for a complex, horrifying story of entwined lives that he masterfully brings to a stunning conclusion.

NYPD Detective Kat Donovan is idly scanning a dating website when she spots the profile of her former fiancé. Her heart nearly jumps out of her chest as she confronts what she’s always known: He was the love of her life and she still feels the pain of his leaving her years ago. More old emotions resurface when she learns that the imprisoned man who murdered her father is dying. She’s distracted from all this when a teenager asks her to help find his missing mom.
