Harlan Coben follows four consecutive #1 New York Times bestsellers with a stand-alone thriller in the vein of his beloved breakout novels Caught and Hold Tight. Megan is a suburban soccer mom who once upon a time walked on the wild side. Now she's got two kids, a perfect husband, a picket fence, and a growing sense of dissatisfaction. Ray used to be a talented documentary photographer, but at age forty he finds himself in a dead- end job posing as a paparazzo pandering to celebrity-obsessed rich kids. Jack is a detective who can't let go of a cold case-a local husband and father disappeared seventeen years ago, and Jack spends the anniversary every year visiting a house frozen in time, the missing man's family still waiting, his slippers left by the recliner as if he might show up any moment to step into them.Three people living lives they never wanted, hiding secrets that even those closest to them would never suspect, will find that the past doesn't recede. Even as the terrible consequences of long-ago events crash together in the present and threaten to ruin lives, they will come to the startling realization that they may not want to forget the past at all. And as each confronts the dark side of the American Dream- the boredom of a nice suburban life, the excitement of temptation, the desperation and hunger that can lurk behind even the prettiest facades- they will discover the hard truth that the line between one kind of life and another can be as whisper-thin as a heartbeat.With his trademark combination of page-turning thrills and unrivaled insight into the dark shadows that creep into even the happiest communities, Harlan Coben delivers a thriller that cements his status as the master of domestic suspense.

4.0 A serial killer in hiding and the witness disappeared
At least this is what I thought when persons who disappeared started to show up, and have two sadists torturing people just to find these formerly disappeared persons. A mystery sort of book without the investigator to navigate and lead you through the plot. So even with 30% in, things are happen...

Well in the end not a bad book, but not as good as I’m used to when it comes to Coben. Usually there is a lot of twist and turns and you really can’t trust anyone, but this book it was all too easy straight through. Not enough red herrings. And Ken and Barbie? Christ, a psycho couple, how many times...

4.0 Stay Close by Harlen Coben
Good, solid mystery with a message. I was hoping for a bit more of a scare, but despite the lack of scares it was exciting. I had no idea how it was going to end or who the killer would end up being. This is the first Coben book I've read, so I have nothing to compare it with, but if this is compara...

Great murder mystery with a collection of damaged characters. Didn't see the end coming until the end. Great read.
