Publisher's Summary

Harlan Coben was voted winner of the Bestseller Dagger, at the 2009 Crime Writers' Association's Crime Thriller awards .

"When the first bullet hit my chest, I thought of my daughter."

Dr Marc Seidman is living in New Jersey with his new wife, Monica, and their baby daughter, Tara, when the shocking attack occurs. When he wakes in the hospital, he learns that Monica is dead, and Tara is missing from her crib.

For two weeks there is no word. Then a ransom demand is made for Tara's return. But Marc makes a mistake.

Something goes terribly wrong during the money drop. The ransom vanishes. The kidnappers get away.

Days turn to weeks as Marc remembers the ransom note's ominous warning: THERE WILL BE NO SECOND CHANCE. The police, believing that Tara is probably dead, start to move on.

Eighteen months pass. And then, when Marc has just about given up all hope of seeing his daughter again, he gets a package with a chilling note attached: WANT A SECOND CHANCE? And inside the package the kidnapper provides proof that Tara is still alive.

Great on all accounts

Performance is great. Takes you into the story from the first moment.
Harlan Coben's books never cease to be amazing!

Robot

Worst narration. Robotic and uninteresting. It made me turn the story off and not finish reading it.

No Second Chance, Harlan Coben

This was my introduction to Harlan Coben (on cassette!) I have been hooked ever since. If you have never heard/read any of his stuff then this is a great one to start with, it is audios equivalent of a "pageturner".

One of my favorite Audio Books!!!

Very exciting and edictave from the beginning to end. Nice voice, I spend many extra hours in the car in front of my house because I couldn't stop listening!

Run of the mill stuff

My second Harlan Coban audiobook and a bit disappointing. Not a bad story but nothing special ... and a little silly in places. I much preferred 'Caught' by the same author.

Great story

Kept me guessing and interested. I'd be keen to listen/read other stories by the author.
