Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Coben’s literally unput-downable thrillers really must be tried. He writes these dark, emotional tales alongside a crime series featuring a security agent, Myron Bolitar. They are good but these stand-alone, psychological thrillers are in a different league.

Comparison: Dennis Lehane, William Landay, John Rickards.
Similar this month: Michael Connelly, John Case.

If you like Harlan Coben you might also like to read books by Lee Child, Kathy Reichs and James Patterson.

Synopsis

The Innocent by Harlan Coben

Matt Hunter's life has already been blown apart once. A fight, a friend in trouble, and the dull crack of someone's skull on the concrete cost him four years in jail, and a small sliver of his soul.

When Matt got out he set about rebuilding his life. He carved himself a
job as a lawyer and fell in love with a beautiful woman. The break in the road seemed only to have made him a stronger person.

But now someone is following him, and Matt realises that his new existence is under threat.

Suddenly Matt can't trust anybody - least of all those he loves...
