From Publishers Weekly

Feb 11, 2013 – In the prologue to this Kafkaesque stand-alone from bestseller Coben (Stay Close), Jake Fisher, a political science professor at Lanford College in Massachusetts, promises the love of his life, Natalie Avery, to leave her and the man she s about to wed, Todd Sanderson, alone. For six years Jake keeps his promise, until he sees Todd s obituary, flies to the deceased s Palmetto Bluff, S.C., funeral, and finds that the widow is not Natalie. This is merely the first of many shocks. He later gets the brush-off from Natalie s sister, and when he tries to revisit the retreat in Kraftboro, Vt., that Natalie was attending when they fell in love, he s told there is (and was) no such place. Surprising secrets among Jake s friends and colleagues propel him on a trail of violence and labyrinthine deception. Coben has achieved greater suspense in other thrillers, but this ranks among his strangest and most ingenious plots. 5-city author tour.

Customer Reviews

Danielle Steel writing as Harlan Coben

On chapter 13 & no sight of a mystery yet. Just a sob story about a guy that can't get over a love at first sight affair from six years ago.
What happened to the real Harlan? Now that's the mystery! Save your money or you will have a case of buyers remorse. Very disappointing :-(. UPDATE. Now at chapter 28. Really just flipping pages to get to the end. Still no mystery, just frustration. This book is really a book about the leading male character, lets call him "Damsel in Distress" and his end eennddlleess search for the love of his life. My husband & I use to read Harlan Coben books together, but he wouldn't come near this one. It's a romance story, even Nora Roberts has more mystery in her books. I sound bitter, but when you anticipate a great read, prepay $15 bucks for it and it turns out to be a stinker you get bitter. Spoiler Alert: flipped to the last chapter as I needed this to be over, true love wins out. The End.

Six Years

Read it in two days. Was not my favorite of his books,but I enjoyed it.

Awesome book

I don't read many books, but every now and then I will get in the mood for a book or two. I've never heard of the author before I bought this book. I'm very pleased to say that this is an amazing book. I really enjoyed it. I would always find myself reading it every chance I got. Great book and really looking forward to other books by this author.
