Booklist Review: "Thriller writer Coben (who has won the Edgar, the Shamus, and the Anthony Awards, the trifecta of mystery writing) specializes in adapting technology to new and terrifying uses. What Hitchcock did for the shower, Coben does for the cell phone. In his latest, a newly pregnant wife convinces her husband, Matt Hunter, who has severe though irrational misgivings, that they should buy a camera phone so they don't miss a minute of parenthood. She leaves on a business trip, and quicker than you can think, Photo incoming, the husband receives an image of his wife with another man in a hotel room. Someone starts tailing the husband. A nun is murdered. The suspect is the devastated husband, Matt Hunter, because he accidentally killed another college student in a street brawl nine years before. Coben's prologue, which traces young Matt Hunter from childhood through the moment on spring break when his life broke, sending him into prison for four years, succeeds in getting you to care deeply about his main character--and fast. The shadow of Matt's past lends richness to his desperation to clear himself and to his agony that his newly reconstructed life may be ripped away. As usual with Coben, an intriguing start, hinging on one out-of-whack technological trick, hurtles into a fast-paced hunter-and-hunted drama. First-rate. --Connie Fletcher Copyright 2005 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Coben seems to delight in making bad things happen to good people (Tell No One; Gone for Good; etc.), and he does it again in this, his best book to date. A paralegal, devoted husband and soon-to-be father, Matt Hunter has a not-so-secret past: when he was 20, in an attempt to break up a fistfight, he killed a man and served four years in prison for it. He's been out five years, living in his New Jersey hometown, and life is pretty good. But when his beloved wife, Olivia, goes away on a business trip, he receives 15 seconds of digital video on his camera phone showing her in a hotel room with another man. Meanwhile, Loren Muse, Essex County homicide investigator, is working on an unusual case: an autopsy of a nun reveals breast implants, which hint at a previous, not so holy life. After the FBI is called in, evidence links Matt to the nun killing. Like all of Coben's stand-alone thrillers, this is a long, extremely complex tale with plenty of gunfire, betrayals, late-night chases and good people forced to go on the lam. All the characters have extensive, interesting histories, which makes their actions believable under the extreme circumstances that engulf them. Some readers have felt that Coben has been treading water with his last two outings, but this one should re-establish his credentials. Major ad/promo. (Apr. 26) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
