I Will Find You by Harlan Coben @HarlanCoben #StevenWeber @BrilliancePub

the setup…
Five years ago, David and Cheryl Burroughs woke to find their three-year old son Matthew brutally murdered in his bed. Somehow, David ends up accused and convicted of his murder and is serving a life sentence in a maximum security prison in an isolated section. Cheryl’s sister Rachel suddenly comes to visit him, his first since he’s been there, and shows him a photograph from a vacationing friend with a boy in the background bearing the same birthmark as Matthew. As incredible as it seems, David and Cheryl both know it’s his son. After five years of not caring about anything, including his own life, David is hellbent on escaping and determined to find Matthew.

the heart of the story…
Well, now. From the moment following David’s discovery that his son is alive, this story had me holding my breath, especially while he was still in prison. I loathe stories about prison life so I was willing to suspend any level of beliefs until he got out of there. Then it became a journey to figure out not only where Matthew is living but why was David obviously set up for a murder and who was the child in that bed. There aren’t a lot of moments to breathe as the search for David by two highly skilled FBI agents was relentless and smart. David’s also resourceful, with a little help from friends, some from strange corners.

the narration…
I’m now used to Weber narrating Coben stories and he’s the perfect choice for his kind of storytelling. He’s gifted and he helped ratchet up the tension and excitement. And, he does sarcasm like no other.

the bottom line…
This was hard to put down as the pace never lets up. Every time I thought David might be relatively safe to catch a break, something would happen to mess that up. There are the typical twisty moments but there’s more about David’s commitment to find and rescue his son that captured my heart and soul. His transformation from a man without a will to live to someone with everything to live for was inspiring. Just bring your seat belt because this isn’t an easy ride.

  1. What an interesting premise, Jo. Lots of questions to be sure. I love that Coben always makes me hold my breath and miss sleep. Great review, and I will be adding this to my TBR right now.
