Seconds Away

By Harlan Coben

Review

How would you feel if you are new in town, and on your way to school, a crazy old "bat lady" comes out of her rickety old house and says, "Your father isn't dead," and goes back inside? Or how your beautiful girlfriend mysteriously disappears before your eyes, leaving you to suspect this may be related? And then your GORGEOUS friend Rachel is shot? This is exactly how Mickey Bolitar feels when these exact things happen to him. He and his friends Ema and Spoon will stop at nothing to find out the truth, even if it involves putting everyone at risk, which it does. He is told countless times to stop interfering with a police investigation, but he does not listen. Read the book to find out what happens to him, Ema, Spoon, Rachel, and his dad.
