This is the second of Harlan Coben’s novels that I’ve read, the first being Tell No One, and I must say, Coben is quickly climbing to the top of my favourite thriller writer list. Like Tell No One, Just One Look is a crazy and twisted thriller. Coben grabs the reader right from the start and takes them on a roller coaster ride. Almost literally. There are so many twists and turns, there’s no way you’ll figure out what happens on the last page.
The story focuses on Grace Lawson, a wife and mother of two young children, who, on her way to pick her kids up from school, stops to grab some of her prints from a photo centre. In the batch of recently taken pictures, she finds one that’s 15 years old. The picture shows a group of people, one of them is her husband, Jack Lawson. Another is a woman whose face has been crossed out. What happens next is a series of events that happen and connect in almost impossible ways. Grace’s husband goes missing, her children are threatened, and she must do everything she can to make the police believe her while keeping her family safe.
Head over to your nearest bookstore or library and grab a copy of Just One Look. You won’t regret it! Happy reading! 🙂
