Just One Look

I am not sure what the title of Harlan’s book has to do with the story, but his titles are perhaps the greatest in the suspense genre.  In Just One Look , housewife Grace Lawson’s life is turned upside down by a photograph that was slipped to her.  Her husband disappears, strange characters return from her tragic past, and she feels threatened for her and her children’s safety.  Oh and the police don’t seem to want to help.  And there is an oriental super villain thrown in for good measure.

No Second Chance

Imagine being shot, waking up trying to find out what happened to your family and feeling that the police, rather than helping, are looking at you as the prime suspect.  Add a few hit “men” and a long lost love and that will give you a peek into Harlan Coben’s novel, No Second Chance.

I had heard that author Coben’s novels are suspenseful so I was anxious to read one of his novels.  No Second Chance did not disappoint as I could hardly put the book down.   The novel offered many twists and turns and is a great book to read.  I look forward to reading more of his work.
