When Will Klein was a young man his ex-girlfriend was found murdered and his older brother, Ken, was considered to be the chief suspect in her killing. Her brother disappeared and became the subject of an FBI manhunt. Never to be heard from again, Ken believed that his brother was an innocent victim who also died that night. Forever haunted by not know what truly happened that night, Wil and his family moved on.

As Will’s Mother is dying she tells him something. She says his brother is still alive. Is he? Was this the hopes of a dying woman? Is Ken still alive? If so, then where has he been and what really happened that night?

To make matters worse, Will’s girlfriend goes missing. She leaves only a note behind. What is going on? Could her disappearance be related to his brother somehow? Is it all coincidence? Why is the FBI is interested in her disappearance?

Will also receives a blast from the past in the form of “Ghost”. He rocked by seeing someone from his past, his missing girlfriend, mounting evidence that his brother may in fact be alive, questions by the FBI and his job working with runaways.

This book is full of twists and turns. Every time I thought I had a handle on things, Coben threw in a zinger. He keeps the surprises coming until the very last page. I was so drawn in that I read this book in one day. The story drew me in and had me wondering what was going to happen next.
