New Jersey Detective Napoleon “Nap” Dumas is seasoned, cynical, and a bit snarky. You have to like his devilish humor. He doesn’t give a poop about what anyone thinks or says; he does his job. Single by choice, but has a close friend from high school. Fifteen years ago, in his senior year, Nap’s twin brother dies in a tragic accident. At the same time, Nap’s girlfriend disappears. Life goes on, until Nap is called on by local police to explain the fact that his old flame’s  fingerprints are found in a stolen car – a car used during the murder of a fellow cop. The mystery begins.

Why I liked. Lot’s of suspects, investigating, twists. Fun guessing. Good narration. No trouble discerning who-says-what-to-who, a nice audiobook production.

Why I didn’t like. Stretch the imagination. Some of the coincidences are eye rolling, wouldn’t happen. But, hey, it’s fiction. Not great literature, not intended to be – just a nice mystery that will hold your attention.

I thought I’d figured it out, but Coben threw me a curve. No spoilers, enjoy your own sleuthing. There is a plot thread left hanging in my opinion. But, it didn’t spoil the story. Audiobook just under nine hours of listening, narrated by Steven Weber, released in September of 2017 by Brilliance Audio.
