The stunning young adult debut from international bestseller Harlan Coben is now in paperback!
Mickey Bolitar's year can't get much worse. After witnessing his father's death and sending his mom to rehab, he's forced to live with his estranged uncle Myron and switch high schools. Fortunately, he's met a great girl, Ashley, and it seems like things might finally be improving. But then Ashley vanishes. Mickey follows Ashley's trail into a seedy underworld that reveals that Ashley isn't who she claimed to be. And neither was Mickey's father. Soon Mickey learns about a conspiracy so shocking that it leaves him questioning everything about the life he thought he knew.

Harlan Coben has been the recipient of Edgar, Shamus, and Anthony awards--the first writer ever to win all three of those major prizes for mystery writing. He is best known for his thrillers featuring Myron Bolitar, a sports and entertainment agent who is sometimes pressed into service as a detective by his clients. Like his main character, Coben was born and raised in Northern New Jersey. After graduating from Amherst College in 1984 with a degree in political science, he began working in a travel business founded by his grandfather. Coben wrote the first Bolitar novel, DEAL BREAKER, in 1995; his books have since made regular appearances on the bestseller lists, and his work has been translated into some 40 languages. TELL NO ONE, a stand-alone novel published in 2001, was later made into an award-winning French film whose main character is a pediatrician, as is Coben's wife. In 2011, Coben published SHELTER, the first in a new series featuring Mickey Bolitar, Myron's nephew, and which won yet another Edgar award--this time in the category of Best Young Adult Novel. Coben has said of his writing process, "I don't outline. I usually know the ending before I start. I know very little about what happens in between. It's like driving from New Jersey to California. I may go Route 80, I may go via the Straits of Magellan or stopover in Tokyo--but I'll end up in California."
