Book #3 was No Second Chance by Harlan Coben. Back of the book reads:
Dr. Marc Seidman has been shot twice, his wife has been murdered, and his six-month-old daughter has been kidnapped. When he gets the ransom note-he knows he has only one chance to get this right. But there is nowhere he can turn and no one he can trust.
This has been my audio book since Thanksgiving, and it was much better than I was expecting. I wasn’t overwhelmed by the other Coben book I’ve read (Just One Look), but this one grabs you and then keeps you involved with its various twists and turns. The nature of the crime behind the kidnapping was not what I expected. I also did not expect the final twist. This was a great thriller that keeps you guessing.
The only issue I had with it was that the characters tended to have many many long-winded thought monologues. This is probably less annoying if you’re reading it and not listening to it.
