When she gets there he's been murdered, and she's a suspect. But then comes a startling piece of evidence that turns the entire case upside down, laying bare Terese's long-buried family secrets in a most shocking way and leaving Myron nowhere to turn for help. Caught in a foreign landscape where nothing is as it seems, he must tear apart the city - and eventually the globe - fighting for answers to unfathomable questions that will take Myron, and millions of Harlan Coben readers, where they have never gone before.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The switch to first person storytelling was odd and confusing. This is the 9th book in the series. Why change?
The plot was so convoluted and, ultimately, so far fetched that I seriously considered not even finishing the darn book.
None of the usual characters (Esperanza, Win, Big Cindy, Myron's parents) played more than a passing role. This was very disappointing! Who cares about Therese Collins?!?
Myron suddenly has a brother in Peru and a sister? What in the world?! Why mention them at all when Myron is clearly written as an only child?
I use the whisper sync audible narration and the new narrated was awful.
Save your money and your time and skip this one.
Terese and her new dilemma did not captivate my sympathies, probably because she is not an empathetic character from the past. Just as I questioned why I could not really engage with the story but only float along page after page skipping words and sentences to get to more interesting parts, the answer struck me. Myron's latest adventure had transformed into a plot from a bad, really bizarre, "B" movie where you spend a lot of time asking the same question over and over. Really? Really? Seriously? What? Whatever form you choose, the intent of the question remains the same. Myron got himself involved with left overs from a science fiction movie? No, a zombie movie? Wait, a World War II master race movie? Myron comeback and bring all my favorites with you! PLEASE!
The trouble arises as usual from Myron's hero complex. A past lover, Therese Collins, asks for Myron's help on an urgent matter, and he instantly flies to her aid in Paris. From that point on, there's never a dull moment. Myron is followed, attacked, shot at, and harshly interrogated by secret agents from France and America. There are terrific confrontations in which Myron gives as good as he gets.
Such bad things happen that Myron begins to show symptoms of post-traumatic stress syndrome. But there are tender moments, too, between Myron and Therese, who reach a new level of intimacy. And there are both touching and funny scenes between Myron and his worried Jewish parents.
Myron gets off plenty of quips as always. His dialog with secret agents is especially amusing. And there were sentences that made me pause and think, wow, this is really good writing! I feel that Harlan handled international intrigue very well in this book, even though it's not his usual genre.
Myron's ongoing adventures, however outré, never cease to fascinate me.

Hard to get into details about the plot without revealing essential bits. All I can say is, despite it being quite far-fetched it manages to be believable and it will make you gasp more than once. So read this book if you like the genre, or if you have been a long-time fan of Mr. Coben such as I have. The only criticism that I have about Coben's books is that sometimes I find it hard to believe that the main characters (in this case I am referring to Bolitar) always seem so sure of themselves despite very awkward and dangerous situations. He always seems to have an answer ready, which is, I think, quite unrealistic. But a part from that, just like its predecessors, I found this book impossible to put down. I've skipped a couple of lunches to carry on with the reading. No more than that, as the plot is so intriguing, you shall finish this book in no longer than a couple of days. So no, I do not agree with the negative reviews here, not entirely anyway. I think this books is as entertaining as ever, and I wish every buyer to enjoy the suspense! And now I shall get caught in... "Caught", next in line...
