I began this Throwback Thursday meme as a way to share some of my old favorites as well as sharing books that I want to read that were published over a year ago. You know, the ones waiting patiently on my TBR list while I continue to pile more titles on top of them:)! I like that these older books are usually much easier than new releases to get a hold of at libraries and elsewhere. If you have your own Throwback Thursday recommendation feel free to jump on board, you’re welcome to use my pic as well. If you’d just link back to me I’d so appreciate it

My Pick this week is:



Published April 2004 by Dutton 

My Rating: 4 Stars

An ordinary snapshot causes a mother’s world to unravel in an instant. After picking up her two young children from school, Grace Lawson looks through a newly developed set of photographs. She finds an odd one in the pack: a mysterious picture from perhaps twenty years ago, showing four strangers she can’t identify. But there is one face she recognizes—that of her husband, from before she knew him.

When her husband sees the photo that night, he leaves their home and drives off without explanation. She doesn’t know where he’s going, or why he’s leaving. Or if he’s ever coming back. Nor does she realize how dangerous the search for him will be. Because there are others interested in both her husband’s past and that photo, including Eric Wu: a fierce, silent killer who will not be stopped from finding his quarry, no matter who or what stands in his way.

Her world turned upside-down, filled with doubts about her herself and marriage, Grace must confront the dark corners of her own tragic past she struggles to learn the truth, find her husband, and save her family.


So…Harlan Coben…enough said:) Seriously though, if you like taut, fast paced, edge of your seat mysteries and thrillers and you haven’t read this one then you’re missing out. Harlan Coben can always be counted on to entertain and keep you turning pages late into the night. I loved that this one involved a regular mom who was just sorting through the recently developed family pictures and then BAM… she’s in a living nightmare! Good Stuff. I hope I’ve convinced you to give this one a try:)

If you’ve read this or would like to I’d love to hear your thoughts, feel free to leave a comment

  1. I love Harlan Coben but haven’t read this one… yet! What I like about him is that his characters are always just ordinary people whose lives are suddenly turned upside down – it makes it so easy to relate to them. Great choice for a Throwback!
