Description

In this #1 New York Times bestselling thriller from Harlan Coben, a dead man's secrets fall into the hands of a vigilante antihero—drawing him down a dangerous road.

Over twenty years ago, the heiress Patricia Lockwood was abducted during a robbery of her family's estate, then locked inside an isolated cabin for months. Patricia escaped, but so did her captors — and the items stolen from her family were never recovered. 

Until now. On the Upper West Side, a recluse is found murdered in his penthouse apartment, alongside two objects of note: a stolen Vermeer painting and a leather suitcase bearing the initials WHL3. For the first time in years, the authorities have a lead — not only on Patricia's kidnapping, but also on another FBI cold case — with the suitcase and painting both pointing them toward one man.

Windsor Horne Lockwood III — or Win, as his few friends call him — doesn't know how his suitcase and his family's stolen painting ended up with a dead man. But his interest is piqued, especially when the FBI tells him that the man who kidnapped his cousin was also behind an act of domestic terrorism — and that the conspirators may still be at large. The two cases have baffled the FBI for decades, but Win has three things the FBI doesn't: a personal connection to the case; an ungodly fortune; and his own unique brand of justice.

  • Just Meh.

    This was my first Harlan Coben book and I’m sad to say, it really disappointed me. I hate Win’s personality and everything about him. He is a completely unlikable guy and I just didn’t care about the story. The characters were dull, without depth, and were not interesting at all. This is a true and honest review. I’m not an overly critical type of person; in fact, there’s a lot I can overlook in a story. But this one was painful to get through.
  • Not His Best

    Alas, the great Harlan Coben is off his game. Mix a far too complicated plot with a cornucopia of barely necessary peripheral characters; then add a misogynistic, rude, ultra wealthy and ultra unlikable “hero;” and finally throw in an unsatisfying ending. Disappointed, but I’ll wait for another one from one of my favorite authors and will give this one a Pandemic Pass...
  • Terrific read!

    I love this whole series! Windsor is a fascinating character, albeit disturbing lol. The cleverness and humor of Coben always makes this series a delight!
  • Very Wordy

    I vote Win as a character. He has been a long time favorite. This book did not disappoint either. Same Win whit and attitude.

    I’ve always loved the Myron and Win series. I was afraid that Win would not stand up on his own. I was delighted to see that he could
  • The best

    Been a Win fan since he first appeared. Read all of Harlan’s books and liked/loved them all in varying degrees. But Win is now my favorite and I am hoping there will be more.
  • A page turner!

    Mr. Coben has once again written a dazzling page-turner. He weaved a brilliant tale with a cast of terrific characters. The protagonist is an old friend from previous novels, but never seen under such bright light. The author's sustained commitment to excellence is a gift and an inspiration.
  • Great book!

    I think this is one of his very best books and I have read them all! It was nice and a little disconcerting to live inside the brain of Win for a while!
