"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.

Despite the rave reviews, I was disappointed with this latest novel. It had too much description which left me skipping paragraphs in the hope of getting back to his usual action-packed stories. Can't say I'd recommend it.

My first thought was to say 4 but I couldn't easily put it down, so that's a 5 isn't it? Settled at 4.5. Nap for Napoleon Dumas, a police detective in a small New Jersey city, still "talks" to his twin brother Leo who died in an apparent suicide with his girl friend Diane 15 years ago. Nap's own special, Maura, the love of his 18 year-old life, disappeared at the same time without saying a word of goodbye. Nap has looked for her during those 15 years with little to show for it, and then her fingerprints are found at the scene of a cop killing. When the officer turns out to have been a member of Leo's strange club along with Maura, Nap realizes he's onto something. What did happen to Leo? A delicious chase and a terrific surprise awaits. My first Coben and far from my last.

What a page turner! Set in my home state of New Jersey: Brash. Wise-guy. Never give up. Baby, we were born to run.

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!
