'This latest from crime master Coben is a thrillingly tense yet emotional tale concerning a missing seventeen year old girl' HEAT

FIRST PUBLISHED IN 2010

Haley McWaid never gave her parents a moment's worry. Until one morning her mother wakes to find that her seventeen-year-old daughter didn't come home the night before.


The community is stunned by her loss. Three months pass without a word and everyone assumes the worst.

Wendy Tynes is a reporter on a mission: to identify and bring down sexual predators. Her latest target is a social worker known as a friend to troubled teens.

But Wendy soon realises she can't trust her own instincts - or the motives of the people around her - and that this story is more twisted than she could have imagined...

The Man In My Basement

Walter Mosley
Authors:
Walter Mosley

The man at Charles Blakey's door has a proposition almost too strange for words. The stranger offers him $50,000 in cash to spend the summer in Charles's basement, and Charles cannot even begin to guess why. The beautiful house has been in the Blakey family for generations, but Charles has just lost his job and is behind on his mortgage payments. The money would be welcome. But Charles Blakey is black and Anniston Bennet is white, and it is clear that the stranger wants more than a basement view. There is something deeper and darker about his request, and Charles does not need any more trouble. But financial necessity leaves him no choice. Once Anniston Bennet is installed in his basement, Charles is cast into a role he never dreamed of. Anniston has some very particular requests for his landlord, and try as he might, Charles cannot avoid being lured into Bennet's strange world. At first he resists, but soon he is tempted--tempted to understand a set of codes that has always eluded him, tempted by the opportunity to understand the secret ways of white folks. Charles's summer with a man in his basement turns into an exploration of inconceivable worlds of power and manipulation, and unimagined realms of humanity. Walter Mosley pierces long-hidden veins of justice and morality with startling insight into the deepest mysteries of human nature
