Myron Bolitar hasn’t heard from Terese Collins since their torrid affair ended ten years ago, so her desperate phone call from Paris catches him completely off guard. In a shattering admission, Terese reveals the tragic story behind her disappearance—her struggles to get pregnant, the greatest moment of her life when her baby was born…and the fatal accident that robbed her of it all: her marriage, her happiness, and her beloved only daughter.
Now a suspect in the murder of her ex-husband in Paris, Terese has nowhere else to turn for help. Myron heeds the call. But then a startling piece of evidence turns the entire case upside down, laying bare Terese’s long-buried family secrets…and the very real possibility that her daughter may still be alive.
In grave danger from unknown assailants in a country where nothing is as it seems, Myron and Terese race to stay a step ahead of Homeland Security, Interpol, and Mossad. Soon they are working at breakneck pace not only to learn what really happened to Terese’s long-lost little girl—but to uncover a sinister plot with shocking global implications.

Harlan Coben is the bestselling author of eighteen novels, including The Woods, Promise Me, and The Innocent, and is the winner of the Edgar, Shamus, and Anthony awards. He lives in New Jersey with his family.From AudioFile:
Hold on to your headphones! Harlan Coben's ninth Myron Bolitar adventure is a genuine edge-of-your-seat thriller. Myron answers a call for help from his ex-ladylove, Terese, and becomes entangled with terrorists, Interpol, Mossad, and Homeland Security. Myron knows he can depend on his good pal Win but can't be sure which group wants him dead. The plot zigzags from a fertility clinic to a black-ops prison to an ultraconservative anti-choice home for unwed mothers, and the bodies pile up. Steven Weber keeps things intense, from knock-down-drag-out encounters with killers to the hot-and-heavy rekindling of Terese and Myron's romance. When Myron is kidnapped and tortured, Weber's convincing pain will leave listeners gasping for breath. Myron's latest encounter with evil and Weber's terrific performance make this required listening. S.J.H. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine
