Missing You by Harlan Coben
  

Lovereading view...

A fast-paced thriller with intertwining plots that keep you guessing almost to the end. The pace is relentless and very topical as it highlights the dangers that can lurk behind online dating encounters. It stars Kat Donovan, a NYPD detective, who recognises her ex-fiancé of some 18 years ago online and starts a correspondence. Then she is told the man convicted for murdering her policeman father is dying so she goes to get some answers as to who ordered the killing and is left with more questions than ever. It is easy reading, compulsive stuff.

If you like Harlan Coben you might also like to read books by James Patterson, John Verdon and C. J. Box.


The Good Book Guide logo The Good Book Guide Review. NYPD Detective Kat Donovan has no idea why a man she loved abruptly terminated their relationship and disappeared. Two decades pass, and on a dating website, a surprised Kat discovers the missing Jeff. But this is only one plot strand. Kat’s policeman father was murdered years before and she is not convinced that the man who confessed is the killer. More? People are being imprisoned in subterranean boxes on a secluded Amish farm, the scion of a moneyed family asks Kat to look into his mother’s inappropriate sexual behaviour… Coben draws all disparate plot strands together with masterly authority.

Synopsis

Missing You by Harlan Coben

It's a profile, like all the others on the online dating site. But as NYPD Detective Kat Donovan focuses on the accompanying picture, she feels her whole world explode, as emotions she's ignored for decades come crashing down on her. Staring back at her is her ex-fiance Jeff, the man who shattered her heart eighteen years ago. Kat feels a spark, wondering if this might be the moment when past tragedies recede and a new world opens up to her. But when she reaches out to the man in the profile, her reawakened hope quickly darkens into suspicion and then terror as an unspeakable conspiracy comes to light, in which monsters prey upon the most vulnerable. As Kat's hope for a second chance with Jeff grows more and more elusive, she is consumed by an investigation that challenges her feelings about everyone she ever loved - her former fiance, her mother, and even her father, whose cruel murder so long ago has never been fully explained. With lives on the line, including her own, Kat must venture deeper into the darkness than she ever has before, and discover if she has the strength to survive what she finds there.
