Book Summary

Myron Bolitar hasn’t heard from Terese Collins since their torrid affair ended ten years ago, so her desperate phone call from Paris catches him completely off guard. In a shattering admission, Terese reveals the tragic story behind her disappearance — her struggles to get pregnant, the greatest moment of her life when her baby was born … and the fatal accident that robbed her of it all: her marriage, her happiness and her beloved only daughter.

Now a suspect in the murder of her ex-husband in Paris, Terese has nowhere else to turn for help. Myron heeds the call. But then a startling piece of evidence turns the entire case upside down, laying bare Terese’s long-buried family secrets … and the very real possibility that her daughter may still be alive.

In grave danger from unknown assailants in a country where nothing is as it seems, Myron and Terese race to stay a step ahead of Homeland Security, Interpol, and Mossad. Soon they are working at breakneck pace, not only to learn what really happened to Terese’s long-lost little girl — but to uncover a sinister plot with shocking global implications.

Media Reviews

"[A] fast-paced ninth thriller ... Bolitar fans will cheer their hero every step of the way." - Publishers Weekly.

"Starred Review. Fans are strongly advised to leave plenty of time to plow through the case at one sitting, as any delay would be fatal to the suspension of disbelief it demands. On the other hand, those few hours will leave the easy chair smoking." - Kirkus Reviews.

"Coben puts a wicked topical spin on Children of the Corn in an action-packed thriller with a horrific yet credible premise." - Booklist.

"This is sure to please both Bolitar fans and those who have only read Coben's roller coaster-ride thrillers." - Library Journal.
