Nice try, but keep trying!

A re-release of a very early book. Unfortunately, it shows, especially in the early chapters set in Australia where Coben's youthful lack of knowledge of Australian culture and vernacular speech make very heavy going of it. In fact, his misuse of the word "mate" and his belief that Queensland has American style sheriffs was almost enough to make me give up on the book, although it does improve later when set in the USA. It is a pity that the publishers chose to conceal Harlan Coben's own warning in the inner pages of the book, rather than tell it as it is on the cover. I can only re-iterate the author's warning - DO NOT read this as your first Harlan Coben novel, it is in no way typical of his later work. In fact, you could choose to give it a complete miss without suffering any great loss.
