Missing You by Harlan Coben
2nd generation Detective Kat Donovan knows what it is like to be on the losing end. Eighteen years earlier her father was gunned down and his killer now sits at the end of his life sentence. Shortly after, Kat’s fiance Jeff breaks their engagement with little explanation. From that point on Kat buried herself in her work leaving little time for anything else.
When a friend signs Kat up for online dating service, Kat is skeptical, but one night starts looking through the men that the site has lined up for her as possible “connections”. Kat freezes when she finds herself staring at the man who broke her heart all those years ago; apparently using a false name. When she tries to message him he replies with a flat response giving no acknowledgement of their past at all… and as Kat digs deeper… what she discovers is enough to bring chills up her spine…
If Jeff caught up in a scam of luring women and men with money into false hopes of a relationship?
With her personal life and her career all colliding at once, Kat starts investigating where it is clear that people on both sides of the law do not want her looking in to deeply.
Harlan Coben NEVER disappoints. Every book that man writes is worth the wait. I loved this book! Kat was a great protagonist, she was strong and independent, but had a softer side as well.
As you dig into what is really happening in this book it is enough to give you chills as it is such a real feeling scenario you can easily imagine reading about something like this in a newspaper.
There is so much awesomeness in this book yet I do not want to give even a sample away as this is a book served better with you diving in and putting your seat belt on – you are in for a thrilling adventure!
DO not hesitate to pick this book up – I mark my reputation as a book reviewer that this is Harlan at his finest. Awesome. Awesome. Awesome.
