Introduction

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Harlan Coben, a heart-pounding thriller about the ties we have to our past...and the lies that bind us together.
 
It's a profile, like all the others on the online dating site. But as NYPD Detective Kat Donovan focuses on the accompanying picture, she feels her whole world explode, as emotions she’s ignored for decades come crashing down on her. Staring back at her is her ex-fiancé Jeff, the man who shattered her heart?and who she hasn’t seen in 18 years.

Kat feels a spark, wondering if this might be the moment when past tragedies recede and a new world opens up to her.  But when she reaches out to the man in the profile, her reawakened hope quickly darkens into suspicion and then terror as an unspeakable conspiracy comes to light, in which monsters prey upon the most vulnerable. 

As the body count mounts and Kat's hope for a second chance with Jeff grows more and more elusive, she is consumed by an investigation that challenges her feelings about everyone she ever loved?her former fiancé, her mother, and even her father, whose cruel murder so long ago has never been fully explained. With lives on the line, including her own, Kat must venture deeper into the darkness than she ever has before, and discover if she has the strength to survive what she finds there.

  "Missing You"by bkmnmpl (see profile) 09/26/17

This was a well written suspense thriller. It was more thriller than mystery. I like the lead character, but I was not entertained by the brutish killers. They were so diabolical that it sickened me... (read more)

A book filled with lots of twists & turns. Makes you think more about technology in our society & its really dark side! The characters are interesting & well developed. A novel you don't want to put... (read more)

  "MISSING YOU didn't grab me until the end of Chapter 1, not bad but not up to Coben's old standard"by ebach (see profile) 04/18/15

He's done it again. Harlan Coben has once again written a winning mystery/thriller in MISSING YOU. Or should I say "mysteries/thrillers" (plural)?

MISSING YOU has more than one mystery go

Really good book. Love Harlan's book. Had some twists in there that I didn't see coming.

 
  "Won't Miss You"by lizblair (see profile) 05/19/14

The writing of this book is adolescent at best. I trudged through it to learn the end of the mystery. I don't think I will read Harlan Coben again.
