Just One Look – Harlan Coben – Book Review #32

Just One Look


Harlan Coben books are excellent for making into TV programmes. They keep you guessing all the way through and you don’t see the twists coming.

Just One Look centres on Grace Lawson. She’s married to Jack and they have 2 children. Everything is great with their family until Grace picks up a pack of photographs she’s had printed.
Mixed in with her photos is an old photo of five people she, at first, thinks she doesn’t know.

On closer inspection, she thinks one of the men in the photo might be her husband from a time before she knew him.
After showing the photo to Jack, he leaves the house without telling her where he’s going or why. When he doesn’t return, she tries reporting him as a missing person but while she’s at the police station she gets a call from Jack telling her he needs some space.

Grace knows him well enough to know that he was trying to send her a message telling her he’s in trouble. She sets out to try and find him and finds herself in increasing danger.

Harlan Coben puts bits throughout the story that, at the time of reading, you don’t take notice of. You only notice them at the end when it all starts coming together. This is one of the reasons I’m a fan!

Just One Look by Harlan Coben

I’m starting to get a good collection of Coben books and I’m looking forward to reading the next one 🙂
