Bestselling author Harlan Coben returns with an explosive novel about the love of a father, in a story where nothing is what it seems-and where hope and fear collide in the most surprising ways.
When the first bullet hit my chest, I thought of my daughter...
Marc Seidman awakens to find himself in an ICU, hooked up to an IV, his head swathed in bandages. Twelve days earlier, he had an enviable life as a successful surgeon, living in a peaceful suburban neighborhood with his beautiful wife and a baby he adored. Now he lies in a hospital bed, shot by an unseen assailant. His wife has been killed, and his six-month-old daughter, Tara, has vanished. But just when his world seems forever shattered, something arrives to give Marc new hope: a ransom note.
We are watching. If you contact the authorities, you will never see your daughter again. There will be no second chance.
The note is chilling, but Marc sees only one thing-he has the chance to save his daughter. He can't talk to the police or the FBI. He doesn't know whom he can trust. And now the authorities are closing in on a new suspect: Marc himself. Mired in a deepening quicksand of deception and deadly secrets-about his wife, about an old love he's never forgotten, and about his own past-he clings to one, unwavering vow: to bring home Tara, at any cost.
Both a white-knuckle thriller and an emotionally powerful tale about the loyalty of old friends and the bond between parent and child, No Second Chance is another masterpiece.

Harlan Coben is the winner of the Edgar, Shamus, and Anthony awards, the first writer to win all three. He is the author of nine previous novels, including the international bestsellers Tell No One and Gone for Good.From AudioFile:
NO SECOND CHANCE demonstrates that Harlan Coben is one of the finest contemporary suspense writers and that Scott Brick is among the elite audiobook narrators. When their skills are combined, the result is almost magical. Coben's story has plot twists aplenty, almost too many, and Brick's reading adds an intensity that propels the story at a breakneck pace. Coben wrote NO SECOND CHANCE in the first and third person, which makes this a particularly challenging novel to read. Brick not only meets the challenge, he triumphs over it, providing every character with a unique voice and personality, as well as an individual tone and pace. Coben has developed a loyal following, as should Brick. D.J.S. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
