Some mistakes can change your life forever. For Matt Hunter, that mistake came in one terrible moment when his attempt to help a friend and stop a fight resulted in an accidental death. Matt was convicted of manslaughter and sent to prison. Time that his peers spent in college, Matt endured behind bars.

Now, nine years after his release from prison, his innocence long forgotten, he’s an ex-con who takes nothing for granted. With his wife Olivia pregnant, and the two of them closing on a house in his hometown, things are looking up. Until the day Matt gets a shocking, inexplicable video call from Olivia’s phone. And in an instant, the unraveling begins.

A mysterious man who begins tailing Matt turns up dead. A beloved nun is murdered. And local and federal authorities, including homicide investigator Loren Muse, a childhood schoolmate of Matt’s with a troubled past of her own, see all signs pointing to a former criminal with one murder already under his belt—Matt Hunter. Unwilling to lose everything for a second time, Matt and Olivia are forced outside the law in a desperate attempt to save their future together.

An electrifying thrill-ride of a novel that peeks behind the white picket fences of suburbia, The Innocent is at once a twisting, turning, emotionally charged story and a compelling tale of the choices we make and the repercussions that never leave us.

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 NRL | 2/16/2014

    " would have been higher rated but it tacked on a mega happy ending that completely ruined the tone. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emma | 2/11/2014

    " This was great! The novel that got me into Harlan Coben in the first place - I have read at least four more from him and I am still yet to read one that topped this! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Trish | 2/2/2014

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Robert LeBlanc | 1/29/2014

    " Very entertaining. It has themes that are similar to The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. However neither of the 2 main protagonists are as well developed as Larson's. The book moves along at a good pace and has a few twists. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ashlee Kindell | 1/27/2014

    " The book jumped around a lot, but was good! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kim (Bookishly Me) | 1/23/2014

    " This book was great from beginning to end....I had a hard time to stop reading. The story just kept pace from the beginning. Normally I have a hard time getting trough the first few chapters, but not with this book. I was hooked right from the beginning. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lee | 1/19/2014

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Robert | 12/17/2013

    " As usual, narrator Scott Brick does a fantastic job bringing these characters to life. And in terms of fast-paced action, twists and turns, Harlan Coben writes one mean thriller. "

    " Once again Harlan Coben grabs hold of me with his novel! This is the kind of book that you just rush through because you can't figure out the mystery and just want to know what's going to happen! Couldn't put it down. Harlan Coben is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mira | 11/20/2013

    " Another solid thriller from Harlan Coben. This is not a Myron & Winn novel, but a stand alone, with a few of Myron's supporting cast. Good plot, kept me interested. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah Boyette | 11/19/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Renie | 4/19/2011

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kendar88 | 3/27/2011

    " This is a good book, but suffers from a bad start. The first few hours are depressing and the multiple story lines seem too detached. Then half way through you know a lot more and is captivating till the end with many plot twists. "

    "
