#1 New York Times bestselling author Harlan Coben takes readers into the heart of family loyalty in this twisty page-turner that proves that the darkest secrets are often closest to home.

Paul Copeland, a New Jersey county prosecutor, is still grieving the loss of his sister twenty years ago—the night she walked into the woods, never to be seen again. But now, a homicide victim is found with evidence linking him to the disappearance. The victim could be the boy who vanished along with Paul's sister. And, as hope rises that his sister could still be alive, dangerous secrets from his family's past threaten to tear apart everything Paul has been trying to hold together...

    I really like the conversational style of this book. I really got into the characters and felt like i was sitting somewhere hearing a story over a cup of coffee. I thought I had it figured out but I was wrong. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves a good story

    I've never read such an amazing book! I bought it at 12:00 am and I'm ending right now 9:47 pm! The twists and turns try to make you assume things, but don't jump to occlusions because the truth always comes out! Now stop reading this and buy the book!!!!!

    Excellent read. Hard to keep up with the twists and turns and "see" the end. I might rate 4 1/2 but couldn't get the half star.

  • Just one look and others

    By Kserasera
    First discovered Harlan Coben when a saw what I thought was a French movie,"Tell No One." Since then, I have read several of his books and intend on reading all of them since he never disappoints with so many twists and turns that keeps you guessing to the very last page. Truly an incredible author and storyteller that will keep you hooked from the very first page. Can't wait for his books to come out and wish they would never end. They would all make wonderful movies.
  • Another great book

    By Mrs. Lockard
    This was the first book I read of Harlan's. It's addicting and you can't put it down. And a great twist. Not one you get from most authors.

    Just discovered Harlan Coben couple of weeks ago. My first read was Long Lost. Loved that book and was not one bit disappointed in The Woods. Hoben is a very gifted writer and author. His plots are unique and his use of very short chapters is very effective. He develops the characters and give them very definable personalities. I commend him and appreciate so much his lack of profanity in his writing. I find it amazing that as an author he is one of the view who can seem to write a story without the profanity.
