Edgar Award-winner Harlan Coben brings us his most astonishing-and deeply personal-novel yet. And it all begins when Myron Bolitar's ex tells him he's a father...?f a dying thirteen-year-old boy. Myron never saw it coming. A surprise visit from an ex-girlfriend is unsettling enough. But Emily Downing's news brings him to his knees. Her son Jeremy is dying and needs a bone-marrow transplant-from a donor who has vanished without a trace. Then comes the real shocker: The boy is Myron's son, conceived the night before her wedding to another man. Staggered by the news, Myron plunges into a search for the missing donor. But finding him means cracking open a dark mystery that involves a broken family, a brutal kidnapping spree, and the FBI. Somewhere in the sordid mess is the donor who disappeared. And as doubts emerge about Jeremy's true paternity, a child vanishes, igniting a chain reaction of heartbreaking truth and chilling revelation.

Professional reviews

"The comedic adventures of sports agent Myron Bolitar take a dark turn in the seventh book in his series when Bolitar and friends face a case of a dying child and a serial kidnapper. Myron's old college sweetheart has just told Myron that he is the father of her 13-year-old son, now dying of Fanconi anemia. Only a bone marrow transplant can save the boy, and the only donor has mysteriously disappeared. Jonathan Marosz manages an array of characters-- both good and evil--with richness of vocal tones and color, while giving the third-person narrator a journalistic, almost distant voice. The whole thing works magnificently as Myron takes on the issues of fathers, sons, masculinity, and violence. Marosz's reading shows the humor, the depth, and the vivid storytelling skills of the author. S.E.S. (c) AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine"
