Coben adds to his highly successful series with a ten-year-old cold case kidnapping that involves a familiar cast of characters—Win Lockwood, nephew Mickey, Big Cindy, and Esperanza—and this one has a personal connection. One of the missing boys, kidnapped at age six, was Win's nephew. The anonymous email that gets this story moving takes Myron and friends into a world of teenage prostitution and two families whose world once again is ripped open by the possibility of either reunion or closure. Steven Weber brings the audiobook alive by capturing the nuances of the author's humor, irony, and suspense.
VERDICT A novel with the right number of twists, highly recommended for mystery and thriller audiences both familiar with and new to Coben. ["This engaging mystery is full of quirky characters…and features several surprises. A treat for fans of the Myron Bolitar books and readers looking for a quick, exciting thriller": LJ Xpress Reviews 9/2/2016 review of the Dutton hc.]
