The novel opens at Joe's funeral. He has been killed while with Maya at Central Park in New York; seemingly during a robbery gone sour.
Now Maya is a widow with a two-year-old daughter, Lily, who she loves very much and wants to protect. When a friend gives her a nanny cam, just after the funeral she sets it up in the den where Lily plays. Everything goes well until watching the pictures from the nanny cam she sees her dead husband enter the room and play with her daughter.
The shock of seeing Joe still alive and walking around their house galvanises her into wondering what is really the truth about her husband's murder. This is not Maya's first experience with death. Her sister was recently murdered. While in Iraq, Maya was responsible for the death of civilians. These deaths haunt her and now she has to deal with what happened to her husband and how he could have appeared on the nanny cam. I really can't provide any detail without spoiling this incredible book. Let me just say if you enjoy thrillers with lots of twists, outstanding characters, and a riveting plot, don't miss this one. Maya is one of the strongest female characters I've read in a long time. She's well trained military and completely fearless. Her friends in the book and even the evil characters are engaging. The plot is filled with twists. Every time you think you've figured out what's happening the frame shifts and you see it from a different angle.
The ending is completely unexpected but one that is logical and a result of everything established. An extremely mesmerising read.
Five stars for a book that is so much more. Mr Coben, you are a genius. Thank you.
It's challenging, gritty and a mind bender that focuses on Maya - the grieving widow, ex-war pilot with PTSD.
Thus story is like watching a loaded powder keg with a long wick on slow burn.
You know it's gonna go boom, not sure of the fallout or who will get caught in the cross hairs.
Coben is an expert writer and No doubt, he has written some absolute crackers that keep you on the edge of your seat... But if that's what you're used to, and what you're looking for with this one, you might be disappointed. Sorry Mr Coben.

The end of the book is disappointing and seemed an easy way out for what could have been a good plot.
Would not recommend to anyone looking for a halfway decent crime thriller.
This is presented as a quest by a woman to right so many wrongs, and to answer questions, however improbable. That entire premise is blown away in the final pages, not just in what is now a typical trademark Cobenesque about-face, but in a complete abandonment of the main theme of the entire plot. Never again.
The story I liked and indeed some of the characters. I wasn’t drawn to Maya though, and that was a bit of a problem as she’s the main character and in every chapter. I couldn’t really get past the fact she didn’t put her daughter first, palming her off on Eddie or the day care centre.
The story revolves around the death of Maya’s Husband Joe, the previous Death of Eddie’s Wife Claire and the death, years ago, of Joe’s brother Andrew. Maya sees connections and does her best to find proof.
I found the book rather slow to start and didn’t really get into it until halfway through.
The end will probably surprise you as you find out who killed who, though as I didn’t find myself liking many people it was less of a shock than was intended.
I thought the years later at the end was a nice touch as you see how lily turned out and how all the nice people in the book have found happiness.
If you’ve never read a Harlen Coben novel before I wouldn’t start on this one – try the first Myron Bolitar novel ‘Deal Breaker’.
