By the international number one best-selling author of Tell No One and Fool Me Once, soon to be a major movie starring Julia Roberts.
The boy who had been missing for 10 years was right in front of him....
A decade ago kidnappers grabbed two boys from wealthy families and demanded ransom, then went silent. No trace of the boys ever surfaced.
For 10 years their families have been left with nothing but painful memories and a quiet desperation for the day that has finally miraculously arrived: Myron Bolitar and his friend, Win, believe they have located one of the boys, now a teenager. Where has he been for 10 years, and what does he know about the day, more than half a life ago, when he was taken? And most critically: what can he tell Myron and Win about the fate of his missing friend?
Drawing on his singular talent, Harlan Coben delivers an explosive and deeply moving thriller about friendship, family and the meaning of home.

It only gripped me at the beginning and the end. The middle section bored me and seemed to go on forever.
I don't know the characters and they didn't interest me. This is my first book by this author.
The narrator did a good job separating the voices but his voice bothered me at times. Seems harsh to say but it grated.
I wouldn't really recommend this book. I see others love it so maybe it's just not for me.
I enjoyed the twisting story and all the characters.
Meeting up with old friends from other Myron Bolitar stories in a new story.
I couldn't find any other audio books read by Steven Webber but I would like to, it was excellently read, I really enjoyed the way he changed his voice for the different characters without putting on funny voices.
I chuckled a few times.
Harlan Coben has written yet another gripping book - he never fails. The outcome is quite unexpected, and as for Win's implied disclosure at the very end when he dances with Eema- tantalising.
loved everything about this book the narrater was good some times i struggle with a American accent but not this time definitely worth a listen ending was good nice twist at the end
Really enjoyed another Harlan coben Myron Bolitar novel... once started I had trouble stopping the story, where at the end of a long journey I'd sit in the car till the end of the chapter?! Liked the twists and turns and familiar characters...
I will say that the story keeps you engaged and encourages your mind to create all manner of possible scenarios as you 'guess' your way through to a whodunit conclusion. Suspicion as to the truth comes in the later chapters so the story does not lose its hold on you too early. Having read so many of his books, I had created characters within my own mind that were a tad more serious..Win was portrayed with a little too much flippancy for my taste, but the narrator did a good job of separating characters and delivered voicechange and intonation well; which made the book a pleasure to listen to.
