From the Publisher:
The past never truly fades away.?
Megan is a suburban soccer mom who once upon a time walked on the wild side. Ray used to be a talented documentary photographer, but now he finds himself in a dead-end job posing as paparazzo. Broome is a detective who can?t let go of a cold case.
Three people living lives they never wanted are hiding secrets that even those closest to them would never suspect. And as each confronts the dark side of the American dream?the boredom of a nice suburban life, the excitement of temptation, the desperation and hunger that can lurk behind even the prettiest facades?they will discover the hard truth that the line between one kind of life and another can be as whisper thin as a heartbeat.
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."
"Coben writes with wit and irony, and his flair for exposing the frail balance point between order and chaos in our lives has never been stronger than in this suspenseful outing." (starred review) 01/30/2012 "Coben excels in descriptions of his character's tortured, ruminative inner lives. He also can pull out of their psychological nosedives to deliver some of the most shocking action scenes in current crime fiction." (starred review) - Connie Fletcher 02/01/2012 "[Coben] excels at creating flawed characters that seem like ordinary next-door neighbors. The mystery itself is challenging, and when everything explodes, the payoff is glorious. STAY CLOSE is a perfect example of a master at the top of his game." - Jeff Ayers 03/22/2012
