No Second Chance by Harlan Coben

No Second Chance by Harlan Coben

Dr. Marc Seidman only remembers eating a granola bar before waking up in the hospital after weeks because he was shot twice. His wife is dead and his six month old daughter is missing. When the ransom note comes to his father-in-law, Marc has lots of decisions to make. He goes to the authorities, which already suspect him of having something to do with the murder and kidnapping, and it results in a botched attempt to get his child back. Something doesn't feel right to Seidman though. Was one person responsible for everything or were there multiple crimes taking place?

This is my least favourite Harlan Coben book. It is completely unbelievable and the problem is that there isn't just one item that is unbelievable, there are many. For example, you visit a home in the country and try to sneak up on it with weapons. The home owner finds you and then after some talking, agrees to help you. Yeah I'm sure that would happen. This book was layer upon layer of farfetched plot lines.

My advice would be to save your time and find another book to read.

First Line: "When the first bullet hit my chest, I thought of my daughter."
