 The Woods

by Harlan Coben

"The latest page-turning killer from Harlan Coben sustains a breathless narrative pace through enough plot twists for a half-dozen novels. Paul Copeland, a politically ambitious New Jersey prosecutor has seen his life profoundly shaped by death--that of his wife from cancer, his father (who had apparently been deserted by Paul's mother) and his sister, whose disappearance had all but torn the family apart 20 years earlier. ... 'I don't like good and bad, just as I don't like black and white,' says the author. 'I prefer to work in the grays. No character comes out of The Woods unscathed or innocent.' " -- Kirkus
