THE INSTANT #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER Ten years after the high-profile kidnapping of two young boys, only one returns home in Harlan Coben’s gripping Myron Bolitar thriller. A decade ago, kidnappers grabbed two boys from wealthy families and demanded ransom, then went silent. No trace of the boys ever surfaced. For ten years their families have been left with nothing but painful memories and a quiet desperation for the day that has finally, miraculously arrived: Myron Bolitar and his friend Win believe they have located one of the boys, now a teenager. Where has he been for ten years, and what does he know about the day, more than half a life ago, when he was taken? And most critically: What can he tell Myron and Win about the fate of his missing friend? Drawing on his singular talent, Harlan Coben delivers an explosive and deeply moving thriller about friendship, family, and the meaning of home.

As DI Nikki Galena struggles to come to terms with the tragic death of her friend, a man is found on a piece of wasteland in Greenborough town. The manner of his death, a cold-blooded and professional execution, bothers her deeply, but not nearly as much as it bothers her sergeant, DS Joseph Easter. Joseph's life has been scarred by a terrible event in his past, something so awful that he has spent years coming to terms with it. Now, when it seems that everything is finally coming together for him, he realizes that the nightmare is seeping back, threatening his career, his sanity and maybe his life. Add to this a mysterious series of bizarre and unexplained suicides, and Nikki Galena finds herself locked in a battle to find what appears to be not one, but two brutal killers loose on the Fens.
