By the international number one best-selling author of Tell No One and Fool Me Once, soon to be a major movie starring Julia Roberts.
The boy who had been missing for 10 years was right in front of him....
A decade ago kidnappers grabbed two boys from wealthy families and demanded ransom, then went silent. No trace of the boys ever surfaced.
For 10 years their families have been left with nothing but painful memories and a quiet desperation for the day that has finally miraculously arrived: Myron Bolitar and his friend, Win, believe they have located one of the boys, now a teenager. Where has he been for 10 years, and what does he know about the day, more than half a life ago, when he was taken? And most critically: what can he tell Myron and Win about the fate of his missing friend?
Drawing on his singular talent, Harlan Coben delivers an explosive and deeply moving thriller about friendship, family and the meaning of home.

It was alright. Nothing more or less. The story idea was interesting with a nice little twist but I feel it was poorly executed. There seemed to be lots of unnecessary characters and entire chapters that were really useless. I understand this book is part of an ongoing series, a series I haven't read. Maybe all these unneeded characters would bring me joy if I had of.
They story was fantastic I had no idea how it was going to end. However the narrator was incredible. I was listen to any book he read and I am extremely picky often a great story line is ruined by the story teller. I would love to know if he has done anymore. Thank you!!
My first book I have got from Harlan Coben. Loved it, the story was good, the ending was good, I am hooked.
The reading was excellent. enjoyed thoroughly.
This was a Great story - keeps you interested and guessing right to the last line.
"My favorite yet"
A wonderful Coben story with a unique little twist at the end, narrated, nay, performed expertly by Steven Webber, has made this my favorite audible book yet. Thank you
"OK but not one of Coven's best"
let's just say the suspense hadn't killed me... I still had no problem getting through the book and finishing it. The characters are just not interesting enough, not believable enough, and either too much, or not enough likeable. the storyline is OK, again - not too original, and the ending is good but not great
"Abysmal - avoid"
Thin and unbelievable plot padded out with irrelevant background. Clichés abound in the characterisations. Very poor.
"Will make a super film!"
This is my first Myron Bolitar book, so it took me a while for the pieces of previous books to fall into place. But on the whole it did quite smoothly. It was a good plot with a credible explanation. It will make a popular film I believe.
"Great to have Myron and Win back"
After what seems like a long absence I'm so glad Coben has written another novel about Myron Bolitar. Have been a little disappointed by other previous books, but this one is the best for ages. Great story and plot. Love that we hear Win's "voice" too. It's a taught plot and keeps you gripped till the end. All the usual Coben twist and turns and surprises and some great characters. Love the subtle humour and sarcasm. Well worth a read.
"The beginning and end were good!"
It only gripped me at the beginning and the end. The middle section bored me and seemed to go on forever.
I don't know the characters and they didn't interest me. This is my first book by this author.
The narrator did a good job separating the voices but his voice bothered me at times. Seems harsh to say but it grated.
I wouldn't really recommend this book. I see others love it so maybe it's just not for me.
"Good story excellently read"
I enjoyed the twisting story and all the characters.
Meeting up with old friends from other Myron Bolitar stories in a new story.
I couldn't find any other audio books read by Steven Webber but I would like to, it was excellently read, I really enjoyed the way he changed his voice for the different characters without putting on funny voices.
I chuckled a few times.
I struggled initially but as the story went on it became more compelling and addictive.
"As good as ever"
Harlan Coben has written yet another gripping book - he never fails. The outcome is quite unexpected, and as for Win's implied disclosure at the very end when he dances with Eema- tantalising.
