Stay Close by Harlan Co

Another great book by Coben.

Megan is a stay at home mom living the "perfect" suburban life but things are not always what they seem to be.  She hasn't her past with her husband.  A past full of abuse, a wild lifestyle,  a lover and murder.

Ray is stuck in a dead end job posing as a paparazzo photographer. He can't get over his ex and he has a photo that might break open a murder case or implicate him.

Jack is a detective -- who just can't seem to let go of an cold case file. He visits the victims wife and children every year and continues to search for the murderer. Then, a new murder occurs in the same location as his previous cold case and Jack has to rethink his entire strategy in order to solve both cases.

These three seemingly different lives find that, the  past has a way of resurfacing and crashing down on them.

The writing is intense, the story has so many twists and turns you'll need a road map to find your way out and just when you think you've figured it out ---- Coben tosses something new into the mix and your previous suspicions are wrong, wrong and wrong!

This is page turner. It is gritty, chilling and beyond entertaining.

Grade: A
