Harlan Coben's new thrill ride, undisputedly his best yet, is a gut-wrenching cautionary tale of what can go wrong when the lines of communication between parents and children shut down.
Tia and Mike Baye never worried that their son, a hockey superstar and solid student, would become one of those sullen teens with “issues.” But after 16-year-old Adam's best friend Spencer Hill commits suicide, he becomes rebellious and secretive, giving them reason to install a sophisticated spy program on his computer. When a message orders their son to “just stay quiet” it sends ripples of fear down their spines. What has Adam gotten himself into?
Betsy Hill asks herself the same thing when, searching online, she comes across a picture of her son taken on the night of his death. She's positive she sees Adam Baye in the background. Yet didn't he swear to her and the police that he never saw Spencer that night?
When Adam suddenly goes missing, neither of these parents gets the answers they seek. All they know is that something deep and sinister has infected their community and they're quite correct in fearing that what they've experienced so far is only the darkness before the storm….
