Staying Close: Stopping the Natural Drift Toward Isolation in Marriage
About this deal
We have the usual mix of damaged characters, who are never quite what they seem, and an ending that I simply didn’t see coming at all.
Staying Close: Stopping the Natural Drift Toward Isolat…
Harlan Coben, an international bestselling author, has penned a gripping crime thriller, Stay Close that revolves around three characters, one who has hid her past but now it is threatening to wipe out her perfect life, the other laments on his broken heart and the reasons behind it and barely manages to make his ends meet and the last one has become a maniac upon investigating the case of a missing man that happened 17 years ago, and the future looks bleak for these three characters, as the missing person count begins to rise in the same manner, their pasts come undone. In a nutshell, this is an enthralling yet entertaining crime thriller that will better be enjoyed by general readers instead of the dedicated fans of the crime fiction genre. The worst offender is the husband, who pouts and gives the silent treatment and generally acts like a seven year old because his wife was out past 1 a.Megan Pierce is a suburban mum living in the fictional suburb of Livingstone, and is hiding a murky past.
Stay Close by Harlan Coben | Goodreads
Unhappily, this is one of those books in which the main protagonist, in this case Megan Pierce, makes one astoundingly stupid decision after another, which is the only thing that allows the plot to advance beyond the first chapter. And although she knows she should be grateful that she had a chance to leave her old life behind and start a fresh one, part of her still misses the excitement of the those days. While Stewart's fate accidentally leads to Carlton's disappearance, very different people actually caused these crimes.Before she departs, Lorraine – who, by the way, works at the Vipers club where Carlton was last seen – gives her pal the plastic engagement ring pledged by a man whose heart she broke by leaving. Lorraine wants to warn her that Stewart, apparently the reason Cassie wished to flee said old life, is back.
