A quick-paced psychological thriller
Megan, a suburban soccer mom, has a secret wild past. She’s got two kids, a perfect husband and a beautiful house, and a growing sense of dissatisfaction. Ray was once a talented documentary photographer, now he’s a fake paparazzo taking snaps of spoilt rich kids. Broome is a detective who just can’t seem to let go of a cold case – the disappearance of a local husband and father seventeen years ago.
Harlan Coben is an international bestselling thriller author. I’ve read several of his books, and I have to admit I’m a bit of a fan.
This book had me from the first paragraph. There’s something intimate, yet matter of fact about the way Harlan Coben writes. This story, predominantly told from the perspectives of Megan, Ray and Broome, pulls you into their world, and takes you along for the ride as they try (in their different ways) to uncover the truth about a secret that’s been hidden for almost twenty years.
