Megan is a suburban soccer mom who walked on the wild side once upon a time. 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 the age of 40 he finds himself in a dead-end job posing as a paparazzo, pandering to celebrity-obsessed rich kids. Broome is a detective who can't let go of a cold case - a local husband and father who disappeared 17 years ago - and 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 at 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 never truly fades away. 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 façades - they will discover the hard truth that the line between one kind of life and another can be as whisper-thin as a heartbeat.

Master of domestic suspense Harlan Coben delivers his trademark combination of page-turning thrills and unrivaled insight into the dark shadows that creep into even the happiest communities.

    " A great Coben! "

    " I enjoyed this book. I haven't read anything by Harlan Coben in quite a while. Like always, this is an exciting story. Will have to go back and read the other books that I have missed. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Frances | 1/26/2014

    " I usually like Coban's mysteries, but this one didn't work for me, and I didn't finish it. My thought was that publishing business's pressure on writer such as Coban to produce a book a year is turning out books of lesser and lesser quality. Sad to see. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lisa Dewar | 1/26/2014

    " Good read though I found some of the story a bit unbelievable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Season | 1/6/2014

    " I am not sure how I really felt about this one. There was a pretty good plot, good characters, good twists and turns, but everything all seemed to fit in a nice little bundle, nothing left to wonder why? The characters were well thought out and explained, their actions fit the characters, but....I was still left wanting something more, but I just don't know what. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jayne Thorold | 1/30/2013

    " I usually love Coben's books. But this one was slightly disappointing. The characters were as usual very believable and likeable, but there were no real shocks and I realised who'd 'done it' half way through the book,so the ending was of no great surprise. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Arlene Walker | 1/26/2013
