David Beck has just received an email from his dead wife… The thriller which made SUNDAY TIMES No.1 bestselling author Harlan Coben a household name.

Eight years ago David Beck was knocked unconscious and left for dead, and his wife Elizabeth was kidnapped and murdered.

Dr Beck re-lived the horror of what happened that day every day of his life. Then one afternoon, he receives an anonymous email telling him to log on to a certain website. The screen opens on to a web cam – and it is Elizabeth’s image he sees.

As Beck tries to find out if Elizabeth is truly alive, and what really happened the night she disappeared, the FBI are trying to pin Elizabeth’s murder on him. And everyone he turns to seems to end up dead…

Reviews

Highly suspenseful thriller, high on excitement
LITERARY REVIEW
A pulsing, pacy, devour-at-one-sitting thriller ... Coben grabs you with the opening paragraph and never lets you go. A class act
OBSERVER
A thriller that recalls Vertigo. If the resolution of the mystery is more straightforward than Hitchcock's, it gains resonance because it keeps coming back to family issues
TELEGRAPH
Intelligent and gripping this is a real white-knuckle read of a thriller
DAILY MAIL
This book will keep you up until 2am
TIMES PLAY
Coben's style is as relaxed as ever, but he still manages to make this a story which is hard to put down
