Just One Look by Harlan Coben

An ordinary snapshot causes a mother’s world to unravel in #1 New York Times bestselling author Harlan Coben’s shocking thriller.

When Grace Lawson picks up a newly developed set of family photographs, there is a picture that doesn't belong-a photo from at least twenty years ago with a man in it who looks strikingly like her husband, Jack. And though Jack denies it's him, he disappears that night, taking the photo with him. Now, to save her family from a fierce, silent killer who will stop at nothing to get the photo, Grace must confront the dark corners of her own tragic past...

Quite simply - this is not one of Harlan Coben's best. While it contains the great writing, the flawed human characters, the twists and surprises we have come to expect it really is a kooky story in search of a rational explanation. Sadly the story only works if you accept the premise that a bunch of irresponsible people try to hide their actions and that others are driven to murder to try to discover the truth. While Coben attempts to portray the characters as ordinary people who simply make bad mistakes the resulting deceit, vengeance and violence define them as people I would not want to know. I guess you could feel some empathy for the main character, Grace Lawson. But like so many of Coben's protagonists you really feel sorry for her because she is surrounded by friends and loved ones who are such schmucks. At the end of a long, implausible story Harlan Coben tries to tie it all together and we are supposed to say, "Oh, that's what's going on and that's why people behaved the way they did." In my book, it just doesn't work. I hope the next Harlan Coben book I read is better.

This was a decent read, but definetely not one of Harlen Coben's best. I felt the book had a few too many characters and the ending was a little far fatched. Dont get me wrong, the storyline was interesting and the book moved quickly, but not one of my favorites by this author.

This story begins with one mystery, then brings in others. The characters each deal with their own problems, yet Coben masterfully finds a way to keep them flowing together in one story. One of the best endings I've read in a long time!

I loved the writer's style & I could easily identify with the characters. Some you love, some you love to hate. Many surprising twists & turns...keeps you turning the pages, unable to put it down....never knowing what to expect next. I will definitely be reading more of Harlan Coben's books! I have been looking for an author like this for quite some time. Highly recommend!

I absolutly loved this book! It was full of twists and turns that made it where once you started reading, you couldnt stop! This book was pretty easy going, it was very descriptive and easy to understand. I think anybody and everybody who likes a good book should give this book a chance, and I can promise you that you wont be dissapointed!

Great reading. Many twists and turns to keep you from putting the book down. If you like James Patterson's books you will also like Harlan Coben's writing style.

This was my first Harlan Coben novel. It had me from the first pages. The twists and turns and the suspense never ended. Great read.

The best Harlen Coben book I have read yet. I have only read about three of his, and this one kept me guessing until the last few pages.

This was a little hard to follow on audio, however, once I could remember who each character was, it became a very interesting story. This was a first read for this author for me and I won't hesitate to pick up another book by him.   The story was very in depth, sometimes too much, however, had a spectacular ending.   It seemed to me that there were too many characters to follow and keep up with and I don't think the story would have lacked any without a few of them.   I had a rough time in the beginning, however, became very interested throughout the middle of the book.  I also believe that if I would have read the story rather than listened to it, that it would have been easier to get into and stay with the story.
