Typical Coben thrill but poor underlying theme
I have listened to many Harland Coben books and have enjoyed them all.
The declared theme of "someone needing something for the health of a child the character did not know he had" is rather lame.
All American boy.
Most are critical to the story line. A couple of the incidental characters touched during the travels could be cut but with little benefit.
Final twist feel a little contrived, to quote a line near the end "it does not have the feel that truth does"
