"Crime-stopper extraordinaire Myron Bolitar returns in this rousing thriller by bestseller Coben. This time around, Bolitar heads to Paris to heed the distress call from his former lover, Terese Collins, whom he hasn't seen in more than 10 years. She has since lived out her dream of marrying and starting a family, but her perfect life has been shattered, and Bolitar must pick up the pieces. Steven Weber gives an inspired, well-crafted reading that elevates Bolitar from flat, one-dimensionality to a flawed and fully believable character. Weber's other characterizations are equally original; he is interested and invested in the story from the get-go. A Dutton hardcover (Reviews, Feb. 2). (May)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
