Synopsis of this title

Life isn't going well for Myron Bolitar. His business is struggling, and his father, recently recovered from a heart attack, is facing his own mortality - and forcing Myron to face it too. Then comes another surprise. Emily Downing, Myron's college sweetheart, reappears in his life with devastating news: her thirteen-year-old son Jeremy is gravely ill and can be saved only by a bone-marrow transplant - from a donor who has vanished without trace. Before Myron can absorb this revelation, Emily hits him with an even bigger shocker: Jeremy is Myron's son, conceived the night before Emily's wedding to another man. Staggered by the news, Myron plunges into a search for the missing donor. But for Myron, finding the only person who can save the boy's life means cracking open a mystery as dark as it is heartbreaking - a mystery that involves a broken family, a brutal kidnapping spree, and a cat-and-mouse game between an ambitious reporter and the FBI.

Reviews of this title


“You race to turn pages... both suspenseful and often surprisingly funny... A slam dunk.”
-- PEOPLE Magazine Beach Book of the Week

“Be prepared to weep bucks while reading DARKEST FEAR... endearing and over-the-top lovable... the author's mysteries are well-constructed, clever and tautly wrapped in a well-scripted story line.”
-- USA Today

“A terrific novel... Coben's professionalism is clear from every paragraph in the book.”
-- Boston Globe

“Fast-paced and layered with both fun and tenderness... Coben is a gifted storyteller.”

“With its pretzel of a plot and page-turning pace, DARKEST FEAR is a winner.”
-- Orlando Sentinel

“This fast-paced story sent me to the bookstore... looking for his earlier books. With the kind of sharp dialogue you used to hear in an old Billy Wilder movie... you'll be surprised that the story also has so many pithy profundities about fatherhood.”
