Can one mistake change your life forever? For Matt Hunter, the answer is a resounding yes. In one swift move, as he helps a friend and tries to stop a fight, he accidentally kills someone. Convicted of manslaughter, Matt pays a steep price. While his friends go away to college, Matt is behind bars. But once released from prison, he becomes determined to rebuild his life. He works day and night to become a lawyer, marries a beautiful woman and now they're expecting their first child. The mistakes of his youth and his tortured past seem to have only made him a stronger person whose life is turning into a brilliant success story. But one day, Matt receives a strange video message on his cell phone. To his horror, he realizes that someone with an evil agenda is following him. Everything he has worked so hard for could be destroyed. And as questions arise about his wife, Matt realizes that he can't trust anybody, especially the woman he loves...--Page 2 and 3 of cover.

Just finished this novel. Coben is a new author for me and tbh, I cant recall how I found the 1st one Id read...but, I am now, officially ADDICTED! This was one heck of a ride...never boring, so twisty, your head begins to do the same. Loved it. The end however, brought me to tears. An absolute 5 read. Happy Reading!

Good book - truly a page turner. Consistently good writer with great plots and characters - always makes you look forward to his next one.

This is the 2nd book by this author, that I have read, voraciously! He's good, articulate, excellent character development, and many twists and surprises in his thrillers. I can't wait to enjoy his long list of published works over this summer and beyond.
