Five years ago, an innocent man began a life sentence for murdering his own son. Today he found out his son is still alive.
David Burroughs was once a devoted father to his three-year-old son Matthew, living a dream life just a short drive away from the working-class suburb where he and his wife, Cheryl, first fell in love--until one fateful night when David woke suddenly to discover Matthew had been murdered while David was asleep just down the hall. 
Half a decade later, David’s been wrongly accused and convicted of the murder, left to serve out his time in a maximum-security prison—a fate which, grieving and wracked with guilt, David didn’t have the will to fight. The world has moved on without him. Then Cheryl’s younger sister, Rachel, makes a surprise appearance during visiting hours bearing a strange photograph. It’s a vacation shot of a bustling amusement park a friend shared with her, and in the background, just barely in frame, is a boy bearing an eerie resemblance to David’s son. Even though it can’t be, David just knows: Matthew is still alive.

David plans a harrowing escape, determined to achieve the impossible – save his son, clear his own name, and discover the real story of what happened. But with his life on the line and the FBI following his every move, can David evade capture long enough to reveal the shocking truth?

    How does Harlan do it? How does he keep track of all these plot twists and turns? But man, did I enjoy the ride! I couldn’t put it down. From now on, I’m reading his books on the weekends. I need to work during the day.
  • One of his best

    I finished it, so that’s saying something. But I remember I used to love new Harlan Coben novels as great page turners — high drama but possibly believable if you didn’t squint too hard. This book every ten minutes or so I would just drop my phone in disbelief and stare at the ceiling for a moment before forcing myself to go on. There is even dialog between the characters on how ridiculous everything is and how no one would believe it (for those who have read, the warden and the car). I almost feel like the dialog wasn’t originally there, but the editor read it and said ‘this would never work in real life, you have to have the characters talk about how it will never stand up’.
