Ex-fashion model and successful business woman Laura Ayars' perfect world is shattered at a time which should have been the happiest of her life. On her honeymoon, her sports superstar husband goes for a swim - and never returns. But what has happened to David - is he really dead? Whilst struggling to cope with her grief, Laura is plagued by questions and doubts. Was it an accident? Or suicide? Or some terrible, ill-judged hoax? As events begin to unfold, Laura starts to uncover a conspiracy which reaches deep into the past, and is now slowly beginning to destroy everyone involved. Someone will do anything to keep Laura away from the awful truth - and she has no idea who she can trust . . .
I think we can all agree that Harlan can do the "disappeared - but have they really?" storyline.
Time for a different plot perhaps?
this is such an amazing book! I couldn't put it down until I'd finished because I got so in to the storyline it's addictive. honestly, the characters are brilliantly brought to life and the twists of the novel are unexpected bs ingenious.
if you're contemplating this one, just get it, you won't regret it!
Raw and a little disappointing
I have read a number of Harlan Coben's novels and have found each to be thoroughly engrossing from start to finish. The author writes a short preface in this novel explaining that it was written long before he became a household name, and it clearly shows in the way the story flows.
He seems to favour the "cliff-hanger" chapter end far too much, and even the most novice crime thriller reader will know the answer to each "question" long before the author provides an explanation. The twists in the plot are more like gentle curves, where the reader can see well ahead of the storytellers intended pace.
The plot line is, as expected, very clever, but the style of delivery is very raw and leaves an odd taste in the mouth. Good read but not his best by a long chalk.
