Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: "With unmatched suspense and emotional insight, Harlan Cob enexplores the big secrets and little lies that can destroy a relationship, a family, and even a town in this powerful new thriller. Suburban New Jersey Detective Napoleon "Nap" Dumas hasn't been the same since senior year of high school, when his twin brother Leo and Leo's girlfriend Diana were found dead on the railroad tracks -- and Maura, the girl Nap considered the love of his life, broke up with him and disappeared without explanation. For fifteen years, Nap has been searching, both for Maura and for the real reason behind his brother's death. And now, it looks as though he may finally find what he's been looking for. When Maura's fingerprints turn up in the rental car of a suspected murderer, Nap embarks on a quest for answers that only leads to more questions -- about the woman he loved, about the childhood friends he thought he knew, about the abandoned military base near where he grew up, and mostly about Leo and Diana -- whose deaths are darker and far more sinister than Nap ever dared imagine"--

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2017 September #1
    Coben, an internationally best-selling thriller and mystery writer and holder of a trifecta of U.S. crime-writing awards (the Edgar, the Agatha, and the Shamus), misfires in this stand-alone mix of suspense novel and detective story. As with just about every Coben novel, this one starts with a wow of an opening, in which a meeting in a bar quickly takes a devastating wrong turn. The plot then turns to suburban New Jersey cop Nap Dumas, who knew the victim and investigates the murder. Dumas is about 30, still living in his father's home, constantly brooding about the death of his twin brother and the break-up with his girlfriend within days of each other, 15 years ago. Coben uses the device of having Dumas write in the second person to his dead brother, and unfortunately, all the expository "You will remember" quickly become trite. And he writes in an arthritic, Chandleresque tough-guy style (a woman has a "neckline so deep it could tutor philosophy") that just doesn't fit a 30-year-old. The story itself sputters along on coincidence, rare for this master of plotting. For determined Coben fans.HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Very few A-list crime writers can claim to have had 10 number-one New York Times best-sellers, but Coben can. His latest may be a misstep in many ways, but that won't stop the lines from forming to buy it. Copyright 2017 Booklist Reviews.
