I really enjoyed the Hitchcockian beginning to this one - and I'd say that vertiginous spell was carried for roughly 2/3 of the story. Not bad. But at some point, Coben had to show us the hand he held, and, well... it was a bit anticlimactic. Still, a nice read. Scott Brick narrates in his smooth-as-brandy voice, and Coben's prose did nothing to spoil the proceedings. Hugh Jackman will star in the film. He's not 6'4, as is the novel's protagonist, but carries a female fan base that more than makes up for it. They're going to need a fantastically charming actress to play the girl.
