Paige has run away and Simon, dad, is looking for her. Paige had been raped, but said she was o.k. At college she checked at DNA site and found out that Aaron was her half-brother. He was addicted to drugs and tried to control Paige. He abused her and then was found dead. She said she killed Aaron Corval, but in reality mom, Ingrid did. Ingrid did not know she killed her son. She just killed him because he abused Ingrid. That would be Simon and Paige's secret forever once all this mess is settled down. When she was 17 she joined a cult, got pregnant, but was told the baby was stillborn. There was an adoption ring, which Alison Mayflower was in charge of selling these boys for adoption. From these DNA sites these boys found out who their half brothers were. That's where DeeDee and Ash come in. She wants to rule The Truth, this cult group, since the head honcho is dying and his sons will be succeeding him. Well, DeeDee is killing them all so she can take over. Kevin Gano, Damien Gorse, Henry Thorpe and Aaron Corval are all the boys she's killed. The book leads you to think that Aaron was also killed by DeeDee, but not so. Elena, a detective, is hired to check on missing Henry Thorpe. That's when she finds out too much and is killed by DeeDee/Ash. Ingrid is shot by Luther when they were looking for Paige. He claimed self defense because he saw Ingrid shoot Aaron, but Simon didn't know any of this. Cornelius, the owner of the apartments, Aaron and Paige lived in, saved Ingrid by shooting Luther. Mother Adiona saves Simon when they encounter Ash and DeeDee by pushing Ash down from the third floor of the apartment. Dee Dee dies by falling as well (?). Her skull is cracked. Mother Adiona wants her son to live - the next man to be killed, Nathan Brannon from Florida.

Quick read, and plot twists, even to the final pages. Some are predictable, some not.

Sorry.....usually like this author but slogged thru 222 pages and finally closed the book.
Just didn't seem to care about the characters and story.

Harlan Coben's latest novel is a typical example of his stand alone work. First, a plot line with so many twists and turns that you'll actually smile at the subterfuge. Second, a cast of likable characters that try to figure out what is happening and why. And third, just when you think it's over, the epilogue adds another twist. Corben's natural tendency to make toward smart and pithy dialogue is also in evidence. His trademark ability to move the plot at a page turning pace makes this a good, if not deep read. Fans of his Myron Bolitar series will note an obscure reference to that body of work, too.

not my favourite by this author, but enjoyable. Offers a peek at how circumstances can pull an ordinary person from an ordinary family into extraordinary and frightening situations. Very twisty.

“It’s the devil—he gets ahold of you. He pokes and prods until he finds your weakness and then, see, he wiggles right through your skin and gets into your bloodstream. Could be through drink. Could be through gambling. Could be through a virus, like cancer or something. Or the devil could be in the smack, the rock, the meth, whatever. It’s all the devil in different forms.”

"The richer and denser the memory of an event-for example, during moments when you are terrified-the longer you perceive that event lasted. This phenomenon also explains why times seems to go faster as you age. When you're a child, experiences are new and so your memories are fresh and intense-so again time seems to slow down. As you grow older, especially when you are stuck in a routine, very few new or vibrant memories are being laid and so time flies by."

"The seventies classic "Hey, St. Peter" by Flash and the Pan came on the radio...In the song, a man arrives at the gates of heaven and pleads for St. Peter to let him in because living in New York City means he's already done his time in hell." LOL

How far would you go to save your child from danger? A wall street financial advisor, Simone Greene, and his wife Ingrid lived a privileged life, together with their children Paige, Sam, and Anya. When their oldest daughter Paige entered college, her life took a wrong turn when she got involved with a drug dealer and abusive boyfriend. Simon and Ingrid were forced to enter the dark world of drugs, dealers, and criminals to find and save their daughter. However, every time they find a new piece of information, it would lead to another puzzle piece that doesn’t get them any closer. Meanwhile a private investigator, Elena Ramirez, is looking for a missing son of a wealthy businessman. When her path collides with that of Simon’s, they find themselves in danger and Greene’s family under suspicion for a murder.

One major bombshell awaits in the last few paragraphs that will leave the readers in shock after they put the book down!
