Publisher's Summary

Marc Seidman awakens to find himself in an ICU, hooked up to an IV, his head swathed in bandages. Twelve days earlier, he had had an enviable life as a successful surgeon, living in a peaceful suburban neighborhood with his beautiful wife and a baby he adored. Now he lies in a hospital bed, shot by an unseen assailant. His wife has been killed, and his 6-month-old daughter, Tara, has vanished. But just when his world seems forever shattered, something arrives to give Marc a new hope: a ransom note. Both a white-knuckle thriller and a story about the loyalty of old friends and the bond between parent and child, No Second Chance is another masterpiece from an author who writes "suspense at its finest" (Jeffrey Deaver).

This was my first Coben book. After listening I bought another. I never felt let down. The book just flowed with one twist after another. I usually listen to audible books when I commute to and from work. This tale caused me to continue listening every night when I finished my journey. Get it, you'll love it, I did.

The villians in this story reminded me of some of the bad guys in John Sandford's Lucas Davenport series. Really wretched, which makes this a really good story. The narration is excellent and the flow of the story is near perfect. The twist at the conclusion is fairly predictable, but I don't think it detracted from the whole. None of the protagonists, including Marc and Rachel, are totally likeable but I think that makes for a more interesting novel. If you like suspense, twists and turns and a satisfying ending, you will enjoy this listen.
