Review: It’s been a long time since I’ve read a Harlan Coben’s novel, but I usually have a good time every time. So when I saw the release of this new novel, I was intrigued!
Simon’s life has been turned upside down since his daughter Paige ran away and at home he seems to be the only one who cares. Even if his wife wants him to do nothing, our hero is determined to find his junkie daughter. But this quest will lead him to places and contact with people much more dangerous than he thought. Yes, because Paige’s disappearance is linked to a more than sordid story and Simon will have to do everything possible to find her, even risk his own life and that of his wife. He will also discover secrets about his loved ones that could well change everything!
It was really a very interesting novel and I must admit that there are several things I didn’t see coming. We discover different characters in alternation, connect their stories little by little and I must say that everything is very well mastered. I had a good time with the story and was delighted to find the author’s pen after all this time.
