Publisher's Summary

Megan is a suburban soccer mom who walked on the wild side once upon a time. Now she’s got two kids, a perfect husband, a picket fence, and a growing sense of dissatisfaction. Ray used to be a talented documentary photographer, but at the age of 40 he finds himself in a dead-end job posing as a paparazzo, pandering to celebrity-obsessed rich kids. Broome is a detective who can’t let go of a cold case - a local husband and father who disappeared 17 years ago - and spends the anniversary every year visiting a house frozen in time, the missing man’s family still waiting, his slippers left by the recliner as if he might show up at any moment to step into them.
Three people living lives they never wanted, hiding secrets that even those closest to them would never suspect, will find that the past never truly fades away. Even as the terrible consequences of long-ago events crash together in the present and threaten to ruin lives, they will come to the startling realization that they may not want to forget the past at all. And as each confronts the dark side of the American dream - the boredom of a nice suburban life, the excitement of temptation, the desperation and hunger that can lurk behind even the prettiest façades - they will discover the hard truth that the line between one kind of life and another can be as whisper-thin as a heartbeat.
Master of domestic suspense Harlan Coben delivers his trademark combination of page-turning thrills and unrivaled insight into the dark shadows that creep into even the happiest communities.

Wish I'd gotten the unabridged version

I love any Harlen Coben's book read by Scott Brick so much and can't get enough. I didn't realize that this was an abridged version of the book until I was done listening to it and regretting not getting the unabridged one. I felt that it ended so quickly.

I don't care what anyone else says about Coben's story being far fetched or Scott Brick being over dramatic, I am a huge fan. I keep looking for his books that are narrated by Scott Brick, but there is not enough of them. I wish Scott Brick re-read all his books, because I really don't want his great books to be ruined by not perfect readers.

I would highly recommend this one as any others of this duo.
