Seconds Away by Harlan Coben

Having ended the EDGAR AWARD-nominated SHELTER with a jaw-dropping cliffhanger, Coben picks up Mickey's story right where it left off in this suspenseful new adventure. Mickey and his loyal new friends, sharp-witted Ema and adorably charming Spoon, once again find themselves in over their heads on the hunt for missing pieces to a puzzle they have yet to understand. As the mystery surrounding Mickey's dad's death unfolds, he soon learns that they may be in more danger than they could have ever imagined.
