Dr. David Beck met his wife when they were 7 and inseparable. They celebrated each of their 12 wedding anniversaries at the very same place they met, his grandfather’s campsite. On their 13thanniversary, they continued the ritual, but this time, something happened. Beck heard Elizabeth scream, and then he gets hit on his head and almost drowning. Waking up in the hospital to the news that his wife is dead is not anything a man wants to hear about his wife. Especially when he got injured trying to save her and still did not succeed.
8 years later, David Beck still goes on dates but cannot let go of his late wife, Elizabeth. While working one day, Beck receives an email in code, but he deciphers it and determines that Elizabeth may be alive! At this moment, Beck has been warned to tell no one. And he doesn’t. Instead, he runs from the people he trusts the most, plunging into a search for the shadowy figure whose messages hold out a desperate hope.
But already Beck is being hunted down. He’s headed straight into the heart of a dark and deadly secret–and someone intends to stop him before he gets there.
I recently read my first book my Harlan Coben, and it was pretty great. I decided to seek out another. I enjoy the murder/mystery books. Honestly, I didn’t find this one as captivating. It had so many twists and plots and part of the story that no one would add up in the real world. It was just hard to believe some of this would actually happen. But, overall I did enjoy it still, and will find a 3rd book to read by Coben. I rated this a 3 out of 5.
