When his child is taken, a father will stop at nothing to get her back in this explosive, white-knuckle thriller from the bestselling author and creator of the hit Netflix drama The Stranger.

When the first bullet hit my chest, I thought of my daughter...

Shot twice by an unseen assailant, Dr. Marc Seidman lies in a hospital bed. His wife has been killed. His six-month-old daughter has vanished. But just when his world seems forever shattered, the ransom note arrives: We are watching. If you contact the authorities, you will never see your daughter again. There will be no second chance. With no one to trust, and mired in a deepening quicksand of deception and deadly secrets, Marc clings to one unwavering vow: bring home his daughter, at any cost.

    Suspenseful film for sure. However, the synopsis given here is misleading: the protagonist is not the father of the kidnapped, adorable baby, but the mother.

    This was a fun read but the terrible editing made it a confusing read.
  • Great Story, confusing character switches

    By Whizk
    The story itself was thrilling and kept me wanting to read as often as I could. It bothered me that the context too seamlessly would change from one set of characters to another, causing confusion and the need to re-read so I could understand. You’d finish a paragraph with one character and suddenly the next paragraph started with dialect of another character in a completely different location in the story. Other than that....great read!

    Harlan Coban is a favorite of mine and this book does not disappoint. Fast moving, a lot of twists and turns, an everyday kind of guy just doing what he has to do to survive a tragedy and get some answers, and then an ending I never saw coming. Great read and I highly recommend.
