Suburban New Jersey Detective Napoleon "Nap" Dumas hasn't been the same since senior year of high school, when his twin brother Leo and Leo's girlfriend Diana were found dead on the railroad tracks - and Maura, the girl Nap considered the love of his life, broke up with him and disappeared without explanation. For fifteen years, Nap has been searching, both for Maura and for the real reason behind his brother's death. And now, it looks as though he may finally find what he's been looking for.
When Maura's fingerprints turn up in the rental car of a suspected murderer, Nap embarks on a quest for answers that only leads to more questions - about the woman he loved, about the childhood friends he thought he knew, about the abandoned military base near where he grew up, and mostly about Leo and Diana - whose deaths are darker and far more sinister than Nap ever dared imagine.

The new Harlan Coben?!
Like a few other reviewers I too was a little taken aback by this new book by Harlan Coben. Generally his books are suspenseful, shrouded in mystery and appearing almost hopeless but with resolution and a happy ending. This book has suspense and mystery but the ending is definitely not what I was expecting!
I agree with reviewer Wayne Mathews, NC that this book requires more than one listen to appreciate it. It is a dark novel (which I do like) and I have to say the ending was a little surprising. I don't want to spoil this but the protagonist is willing to give up a lifetime of working for a relationship 12 years ago.
Anyway, I do like and Recommend this book, however if you've never read anything by Coben I would recommend starting with a different book maybe FOOL ME ONCE or THE INNOCENT.
Steven Weber does an excellent job narrating.

I think because we were in the car listening as we took a road trip we kept the book going way longer than I would have here at home. I noticed more and more we talked over the narration. Probably not a good sign. We did listen to the book to the end, however. It's not a bad story, it's just not an interesting story. The story just drug on and on. We weren't the happiest with this selection. May not do Harlan Coben again as a book we can both listen to as we take our next car trip.
