Jake Fisher thought he met the girl of his dreams while he was away trying to write his dissertation. They had a wonderful summer together and he believed they would spend their lives together. Then, one day she announces that she is going back to her old boyfriend and a few days later Jake receives a wedding invitation to her wedding. He cannot believe this is happening and has to see it with his own eyes. When he goes to the wedding she makes him promise not to bother her or her husband ever again. He promises and does nothing for six years, but then one day he sees the obituary for the man he saw Natalie marry. He decides to go to the funeral and does not see Natalie as the grieving widow, but instead sees a woman who has been married to this man for many years and they have two teenage kids together. Where is Natalie? Why was her husband married to someone else?
Coben has done it again with this exciting mystery. Jake’s journey takes off immediately after learning that Natalie’s husband is dead. The more he investigates and looks for her, however, the more dead ends and questions he has. No one seems to know where Natalie is and some people do not seem to believe she existed in the first place. The story twists and turns like all of Coben’s best mysteries do and the ending is full of surprises that will satisfy mystery fans.
