As a boy, Will Klein had a hero: his older brother, Ken. Then, on a warm suburban night in the Kleins’ affluent New Jersey neighborhood, a young woman—a girl Will had once loved—was found brutally murdered in her family’s basement. The prime suspect: Ken Klein. With the evidence against him overwhelming, Ken simply vanished. And when his shattered family never heard from Ken again, they were sure he was gone for good.
Now eleven years have passed. Will has found proof that Ken is alive. And this is just the first in a series of stunning revelations as Will is forced to confront startling truths about his brother, and even himself. As a violent mystery unwinds around him, Will knows he must press his search all the way to the end. Because the most powerful surprises are yet to come.
Harlan Coben has been one of my favorite authors ever since I stumbled upon his book Tell No One half a dozen years ago. Since then, I have slowly but surely been making my way through his long list of amazing books. This one was no exception.
You know how most tag lines on book covers are crap? This one's the exception. "More twists and turns than an amusement park ride" is no exaggeration. Just one you think you've got it all figured out - BAM! - huge plot twist and you're turning pages furiously, trying to get to the end! I was continually surprised, right down to the very last pages. If you like a good mystery without a lot of bloodshed and gore, you don't want to miss this one!
