Overview

You never meant to kill him….One night, Matt Hunter innocently tried to break up a fight—and ended up a killer. Now, nine years later, he’s an ex-con who takes nothing for granted. His wife, Olivia, is pregnant, and the two of them are closing on their dream house. But all it will take is one shocking, inexplicable call from Olivia’s phone to shatter Matt’s life a second time….
An electrifying thrill ride of a novel that peeks behind the white picket fences of suburbia, The Innocent is at once a twisting, turning, emotionally charged story and a compelling tale of the choices we make and the repercussions that never leave.

Failed Attempt

I forced myself to listen into the 3rd CD and finally gave up. When was the story going to start? While I have enjoyed the Myron Bolitar series, this book was Way over the top on mundane details. Matt's inner musings are boring and insignificant. Details of the the other characters are equally boring. I might try again if someone were to tell me that something happens by the end of CD 3. But maybe not.

I've read Harlan Coben before and I have found his books to be great. This one could have been better. I thought it was very boring.

Loved It!
