Summary

A brilliant, gripping stand-alone novel from the Sunday Times best-selling author of Caught

Matt Hunter's life has already been blown apart once. A fight, a friend in trouble and the dull crack of someone's skull on the concrete cost him four years in jail, and a small sliver of his soul. 

When Matt got out he set about rebuilding his life. He carved himself a job as a lawyer and fell in love with a beautiful woman. The break in the road seemed only to have made him a stronger person. 

But now someone is following him, and Matt realises that his new existence is under threat. Suddenly Matt can't trust anybody - least of all those he loves....

Dreadful Narration

Some narrators are better than others but usually I can understand them quite clearly. I have also enjoyed other Harlan Coben books. I'm not sure whether this is a good story or not because I found the narrator very unclear and simply could not understand half of what he was saying. I have never found this before and I have stopped listening because its impossible to go on with it.
A waste of my months subscription!

Not so good

I think I know now why this way previously available in abridged form. I found this long winded, confusing and a bit repetitive. I love Harlan Corben but just couldn't wait to finish this. Also found the narrator a bit unclear at times

Coben nailed it

So Yet again, hooked on a book by this amazing author. Right until the last chapter, I’m racking my brains thinking. So when the rug finally gets pulled from underneath me, Matt & Olivias twisted tales overlap and entwine. Highly recommend. It’s got sex, violence, blackmail, manipulation.

Sorry

I love all of Harlan's books however this one didn't grip me as much and the narrator was pretty poor

Myron Bolitar needs to be resurrected 😁

predictable

This author excels in trite. I woke up to the fact that his banality put me to sleep.

Great read

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Can't read another for a while as I am still in this story and felt a great loss when it ended. Innocent gets you hooked from the onset and you have to read on. Great characters, plot and read really well. Need another like this now.
