I am sooo glad I read ebooks...or Id be paying for tearing the pages because I couldn't turn them fast enough. This was a great read. I loved the characters, except for a few of the cops(agents)..smh... thank goodness for Carlson. Only took me a couple of days to get thru this, an excellent read and I would highly recommend it to anyone who likes a mystery.5 stars. Happy Reading!
Another great suspense filled story by one of my favourite authors.
Stand alone novel full of action and plot twists, right to the very last page.
Incredible suspense! Nice to have the point of view from the husband rather than a detective for a change. Feels like you are making decisions yourself.
I'm reluctantly going to finish this book, although I lost patience with Coben's overstated and exaggerated portrayals of minorities as thuggish uneducated criminals and white people as irrefutably rich and intelligent within the first couple of chapters. I understand the desire to come across as gritty and realistic but it just ended up coming off as offensive. The dialogue and character and scenery descriptions were completely stereotyped-i have never heard a black person use the word "bidness" in a legitimate conversation. Also, the simple mechanics of the writing were just awful. It lacks structure and flow. Good story, abhorrent execution.
The only reason I'm still reading is because I want to know what happened to Elizabeth. Glad I checked out the e-book instead of wasting gas to go the library for a paper copy.
Begin reading on pg267.
I'd have to say this was a pretty good read. Some characters were interesting, some, not so much. There are a few twists to the story, which I enjoy. I never like reading "predictable". I'd give it 3+ stars because although it was good, some of the characters were off-putting.
When a man receives a mysterious email from his deceased wife, he sets out on a quest for answers.....a spine tingling...fast paced....game changing novel.......definitely a page turner
One of the best murder mysteries I've ever read. The opening premise of a man suddenly receiving an email from his wife who was murdered eight years ago certainly gets one's attention. That's followed by a plot with more twists than a mountain bike path. It's difficult to figure out who the good guys and bad guys are and almost everyone seems to have secrets that somehow bear on the plot.
An unusual bonus, seldom encountered in books of this kind is that several of the minor characters (the fugitive hiding in the woods, the drug dealer, the lesbian model, the doctor's father-in-law) are well drawn, interesting and really contribute to the story.
Some readers have criticized the plot for being far-fetched. Of course it is! That's what this genre of book is supposed to be -- a piece of fantasy. Yes, there are technology anachronisms; a legitimate quibble but I'm willing to overlook minor issues like that when the entire book is so entertaining.
A well deserved four-and-a-half stars.
Excellent mystery with lots of twists and unexpected turns. Highly recommended to those who enjoyed Gone Girl.
