"With unmatched suspense and emotional insight, Harlan Cob enexplores the big secrets and little lies that can destroy a relationship, a family, and even a town in this powerful new thriller. Suburban New Jersey Detective Napoleon "Nap" Dumas hasn't been the same since senior year of high school, when his twin brother Leo and Leo's girlfriend Diana were found dead on the railroad tracks -- and Maura, the girl Nap considered the love of his life, broke up with him and disappeared without explanation. For fifteen years, Nap has been searching, both for Maura and for the real reason behind his brother's death. And now, it looks as though he may finally find what he's been looking for. When Maura's fingerprints turn up in the rental car of a suspected murderer, Nap embarks on a quest for answers that only leads to more questions -- about the woman he loved, about the childhood friends he thought he knew, about the abandoned military base near where he grew up, and mostly about Leo and Diana -- whose deaths are darker and far more sinister than Nap ever dared imagine"-- Provided by publisher.

There is one very detailed & disturbing torture scene I would have preferred not to have encountered. Otherwise this was an excellent novel.

The death of his twin brother changed Nap Dumas' future. It has been 15 years of one-sided conversations as Nap's quest to figure out the what & why that of Leo that led him to become a police detective.

Nap's high school love disappeared the same night of Leo's death. When her fingerprints are found at a crime scene, Nap buries himself in finding answers and hopefully Maura.

This deserves a 5/5 except for the disturbing violence.

Good - but way too wordy and unnecessarily long

I don't think Coben has written a bad book yet. Love him!

Louise Penny also wrote a novel 2 years ago about those secretive missile bases on the East Coast in the 70's and 80's. Coben's story is more provocative as it deals with the deaths of 2 teens on the site of such a missile base situated in a small upscale community. These deaths were covered up by the Agency. 15 years later another murder leads one cop into opening up an investigation into the deaths of those 2 teens. The focus of the plot, then, is how did those 2 teens really die? I enjoyed following the leads and assessing the actions of these teens. Coban adds layers of detail about their lives through the cop who does the investigating. Just accept the consequences and the fall out of their actions, as Coban tells it, without giving too much thought about reality.

This was my first Harlan Coben book. Sometimes, I like an easy, uncomplicated read just before bed and this fit the bill. It was an interesting mystery with a likeable protangonist.

Didn't care for this book at all. Too many unrealistic things go on. I felt myself several times go really? Knew who did it early on. Usually like his books a lot...Not this one.
