Thriller about a vanished loved one
le 16 janvier 2014
Jacob (`Jake") Sanders' love of his life Natalie suddenly breaks off their passionate love affair after only three months. Soon after she marries an old flame. Jake is invited to the wedding party where Natalie makes Jake swear to leave her and her new husband alone, in peace, by whatever means and forever. Jake keeps his word until he sees, six years later on the website of the university that employs him, an obituary, death notice. Not of Natalie, but of the man she favored above him.
Great start for a thriller that begins in a relaxed mode, but gradually becomes scary, life-threatening for Jake, and which remains rather incomprehensible to him, adding tension. It also offers welcome insights into how smaller US universities finance themselves, the impact of Facebook and why Jake has not joined but knows how to worm his way in.
Lots of reading pleasure and thrills, told in brief, well-written chapters during which Harlan Coben communicates constantly with his readers through his hero Jake. Powerful way to propel a story.
