Author Info
Harlan Coben
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."
Praise
"[Coben's] best book to date."
From the Publisher
Annotation The apparent infidelity of an ex-con's wife and the death of a nun with a shady past are linked in this standalone thriller by bestselling author Harlan Coben. Fourteen years after Matt Hunter accidentally killed a young man in an attempt to break up a drunken frat party brawl, and nine years after his completed prison term for manslaughter, things have never looked better for him...until he receives a video via his cameraphone showing his pregnant wife Olivia in a motel room with a strange man. Meanwhile, a nun with breast implants dies in a suspicious manner, and circumstantial evidence connects Matt to the murder. Proving Matt's innocence will send both him and his wife on the run to confront the darkest secrets of their pasts.
