A lone soul facing overwhelming odds and implacable foes sounds like a typical plot but Coben has the expertise to make it anything but typical. Dr. David Beck faced tragedy early in his life and has moved on or has he?
David Beck is a hopeless romantic who grasps at straws. Coben makes him believable and you are sympathetic to his plight. The foes are sadly entirely too realistic. Money talks and no more than in this book.
The twists and turns will keep you occupied and force you to read long after your normal bedtime.
This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
