Lovereading view...

A great stand alone thriller from Harlan Coben with two plot lines to follow. One is the case that lawyer, Paul Copeland, is prosecuting now and the other the murder investigation he was involved in as a teenager. Thoroughly gripping, you’ll find you are second guessing yourself constantly throughout. Another unputdownable novel from this brilliant crime writer.

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

Synopsis

The Woods by Harlan Coben

Paul Copeland's sister went missing twenty years ago. Now raising a daughter alone, after the death of his wife, Paul - known as Cope - balances family life with a career as a prosecutor. But when a homicide victim is found with evidence linking him to Cope, the well-buried secrets of the past are threatening everything.

Is this body one of the campers who disappeared with his sister? Could his sister be alive? Cope has to confront so much he left behind that summer so long ago: his first love, Lucy, his mother who abandoned the family, and the secrets that his parents might have been hiding even from
their own children.

Cope must decide what is better left hidden in the dark and what truths can be brought to the light. And can he find absolution?
