Five years ago, an innocent man began a life sentence for murdering his own son. Today he found out his son is still alive.
David Burroughs was once a devoted father to his three-year-old son Matthew, living a dream life just a short drive away from the working-class suburb where he and his wife, Cheryl, first fell in love--until one fateful night when David woke suddenly to discover Matthew had been murdered while David was asleep just down the hall. 
Half a decade later, David’s been wrongly accused and convicted of the murder, left to serve out his time in a maximum-security prison—a fate which, grieving and wracked with guilt, David didn’t have the will to fight. The world has moved on without him. Then Cheryl’s younger sister, Rachel, makes a surprise appearance during visiting hours bearing a strange photograph. It’s a vacation shot of a bustling amusement park a friend shared with her, and in the background, just barely in frame, is a boy bearing an eerie resemblance to David’s son. Even though it can’t be, David just knows: Matthew is still alive.

David plans a harrowing escape, determined to achieve the impossible – save his son, clear his own name, and discover the real story of what happened. But with his life on the line and the FBI following his every move, can David evade capture long enough to reveal the shocking truth?


  • Almost…

    4 Stars. A excellent book but Coben has spoiled me to the point where I can only give it 4 because it’s not up to his standards. Most others would get 5 for writing this. It was just a little thin, I think, is the word for it. Maybe a little rushed even though it had to move quickly. Just not his best. You should definitely read it though. It probably makes a great movie, not a series though. Mr. Coben, please make this into a Netflix MOVIE, set here and filmed here, in The States.
  • Great story from Harlan

    By jj's way
    An enjoyable read. A little reality, a little tall tale, a bit of just go with it, and some sweetness to hold it together, and a little salt, margarita style.
  • Outstanding!

    Love this author and his characters!
  • Not for Me!

    By Lslatte
    The subject and goriness of how this book starts out about a child was enough for me to stop reading. Hated it!
  • Really good

    By daniellec813
    I like how everything came together. I found a major part of the story kind of unnecessary in the end but I was intrigued throughout and liked how no stone was left unturned.
  • Not at all realistic

    By TJEL
    Seems like the book was written by a very inexperienced or young writer. None of it is believable or close to reality. Don't waste your time and money on this book.
  • All encompassing

    I started this book at 10 am and completed the book at midnight (including reading during commercial breaks in a Mets baseball game)!

  • Lies upon lies, webs upon webs! Down the rabbit hole I go!

    By Aerynsun2221
    How does Harlan do it? How does he keep track of all these plot twists and turns? But man, did I enjoy the ride! I couldn’t put it down. From now on, I’m reading his books on the weekends. I need to work during the day.
  • One of his best

    By petelx
    An extraordinary and monumental achievement in fiction. Coben is a master story teller par excellence. What an amazing book! And an amazing author.
