Summary

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 18 years ago. 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 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. Read by Kerry Shale

Gripping

I think this is my favourite Harlan Coben so far, I found myself glad I had a long drive so that I could listen uninterrupted. There were some gruesome bits that I didn't like, but happily for me not too many. The writer really jacked up the suspense and my heart was pounding in places and I had to make a conscious decision not to drive too fast!

The narrator's treatment of most of the male characters was weird though. They were generally portrayed as dumbass, deadbeat types, even when they weren't. There were some male characters that he got really well, so it's even stranger that he made the decision to go with those other portrayals in the way that he did. However, other than this he was a great reader.

Great Storyline

Where does Missing You rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Harlan Coben's books tend to follow a familiar formula but it's a good formula. I'd rate this book in the top 10% of audio thrillers I've heard.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Kat obviously. The whole story revolved around her.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

The narration was very good generally apart from making many of the male characters sound like morons for some inexplicable reason.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes. I would have were that possible. I ended up listening to it over about 3 days because of work commitments.

Any additional comments?

Great Story, Characters you cared about and heart pounding ending. The only drawback was the weird drawls some of the male characters were given.
