Two young boys, Patrick and Rhys, went missing from Rhys' home ten years ago. Rhys' mother, is Win's cousin, and Win is determined to find out what happened to them. When a teenage boy who seems to be Patrick suddenly appears, there are more questions than answers, and after a few dead bodies and another disappearance, Win calls Myron for help.
Coben is in his element here, as he tantalizes us with clues and intrigue. His characterization is strong, and we watch the main characters develop along with the plot. I like the way he intertwines his characters from his other series into this book, too. He does a good job with first time characters as well. The parents of both boys are all victims who pull at our heart strings even as we try to figure them out. The action never stops, and Coben's humor helps the reader relax during some of those fast paced moments.
This might not have been my favorite Bolitar saga, but it kept me going from page one, and made me sad when I turned to the last page. I am hoping that we don't have to wait long for the next book in this series...one hiatus was more than enough.
