Summary

In this #1 New York Times bestselling thriller from Harlan Coben, a dead man's secrets fall into the hands of a vigilante antihero—drawing him down a dangerous road.

Over twenty years ago, the heiress Patricia Lockwood was abducted during a robbery of her family's estate, then locked inside an isolated cabin for months. Patricia escaped, but so did her captors — and the items stolen from her family were never recovered. 

Until now. On the Upper West Side, a recluse is found murdered in his penthouse apartment, alongside two objects of note: a stolen Vermeer painting and a leather suitcase bearing the initials WHL3. For the first time in years, the authorities have a lead — not only on Patricia's kidnapping, but also on another FBI cold case — with the suitcase and painting both pointing them toward one man.

Windsor Horne Lockwood III — or Win, as his few friends call him — doesn't know how his suitcase and his family's stolen painting ended up with a dead man. But his interest is piqued, especially when the FBI tells him that the man who kidnapped his cousin was also behind an act of domestic terrorism — and that the conspirators may still be at large. The two cases have baffled the FBI for decades, but Win has three things the FBI doesn't: a personal connection to the case; an ungodly fortune; and his own unique brand of justice.

    I vote Win as a character. He has been a long time favorite. This book did not disappoint either. Same Win whit and attitude.

    I’ve always loved the Myron and Win series. I was afraid that Win would not stand up on his own. I was delighted to see that he could

    Been a Win fan since he first appeared. Read all of Harlan’s books and liked/loved them all in varying degrees. But Win is now my favorite and I am hoping there will be more.
  • A page turner!

    Mr. Coben has once again written a dazzling page-turner. He weaved a brilliant tale with a cast of terrific characters. The protagonist is an old friend from previous novels, but never seen under such bright light. The author's sustained commitment to excellence is a gift and an inspiration.
  • Great book!

    I think this is one of his very best books and I have read them all! It was nice and a little disconcerting to live inside the brain of Win for a while!

    Great to see Win reappear. Very intriguing character and well developed. Corbin makes a number of statements about humanism through Win. As much as we might not like them, his grasp of human motivation is quite accurate. Beyond that, it’s a very good and complex story. Very much in line with what we have come to expect from Corbin. Would like to see what comes next for Win.

    This book is the absolute worst. If he didn’t already have a name it would never have been published.

    Loved the plot. Loads of twists and turns...witty with no chance of putting it down until all was made clear.

    Contrary to one review (maybe more) I greatly enjoyed this book. Harlan, if you can keep producing novels like this I’ll keep buying them.
