About this deal

They install a spy program on Adam's computer and within days they are jolted by a strange message to their son from an unknown correspondent: "Just stay quiet and all safe. Where does the parent draw the line in letting their children grow up and yet still protecting them? Suburban snooping leads to an intricate web of deceit and deception with deadly and horrific results.

Yeah, I know, I harp on such matters excessively, so when I’m presented with a quality presentation, I’m duty-bound to note it! Adam's best friend, Spencer, recently committed suicide, and since then, Adam has become increasingly withdrawn and moody. The detective investigating Marianne's murder, Loren Muse, realizes that Marianne is not a prostitute and that someone has gone to great lengths to try to fool the authorities. AND the plot continues to layer with the abductions and murders of two women connected to this same neighborhood.All that being at least sort of the case, I’m delighted to note that precisely the opposite obtains with regard to Christopher Bram’s first two novels. There are a series of interrelated plots, all of which come together in a surprising yet logical way, and, just when you think the plot is solved, there is another twist.

Tell No One, Gone for Good, No Second Chance, Just One Look, The Innocent, The Wods, Hold Tight, and Caught. Do you understand why Susan Loriman concealed the fact that she had been raped and subsequently killed her attacker? Comprised of a compelling plot (and twists), believable characters and a pace that would put a cheetah to shame, this was quite an enjoyable stand alone novel from that crafty Mr Coben! The author successfully addresses the racism, institutional and internalised homophobia, and misogyny that were prevalent in that era.Another thing I genuinely appreciate about the novel is that Bram's writing style has a kind of "edgy" quality that brings to mind Daschel Hammet. This erotic, suspenseful novel captures the big-band feel of New York City in the forties, the intensity of a nation at war, and the passion of men for their country—and for each other. Nearby, while browsing through an online memorial for Spencer, Betsy Hill discovers a surprising detail about the night of her son’s death. BookBrowse seeks out and recommends the best in contemporary fiction and nonfiction—books that not only engage and entertain but also deepen our understanding of ourselves and the world around us. I was worried that the character list was growing too long, especially with the Marianne/Nash/Petra line that was still unclear to me.
