So the fact that this book does it try to make itself better than most of those books ends up making it somewhat forgettable in the grand scheme of things. Like the book does more telling us that they’re in love what does it do a whole lot to actually show us those things. There’s invariably something sinister in their past that comes back to haunt them, and this is clearly the case here too. Because there are others interested in both her husband’s past and that photo, including Eric Wu: a fierce, silent killer who will not be stopped from finding his quarry, no matter who or what stands in his way. Los personajes, están lo suficientemente perfilados, pero no hay ninguno que vayas a recordar con el tiempo.

This is another epic tail that brings characters to life, puts them into situations that rock your sanity. The Five (2016) and Safe (2018 – starring Michael C Hall, Amanda Abbington and Audrey Fleurot) were formulaic and frankly a bit daft.While the mysterious paternal figure certainly helps Grace out, providing protection for her and her children, I didn't like him at all and he seemed less believable than most of the other characters.

Pair this with the same gripping plot and pages that seem to fly by, and Just One Look rates as Coben’s best book yet. In the book, I complained that this particular villain was it used as effectively as it could’ve been despite the fact how cool he was. I considered skipping until the end and giving it one star, but stuck it out as the book is pretty short, only about seven hours. Then he tries to brush it off by saying nonchalantly that he doesn't know who any of the people are, including the one Grace thinks is him.This one did seem a bit more complex than other Coben books with all the characters to remember and the separate plotlines as well, but it still flowed pretty well. And I feel like that the book makes their relationship between Grace and her kids feel like it mean something, which is something that the other Harlan Coban novels really don’t have as much. I love the nuanced bits and pieces he always pops in: “Like every other parent, Grace only had eyes for her own. When she looks closer she notices that the photo is a bit blurred and is lacking the vibrant colors of the others. However, I thought that Jack and Grace could’ve had a more developed relationship that we as the audience could’ve witnessed, The pacing towards the first half of the novel was pretty bad because there was a lot of characters such as the cops and Mrs Swann added next to nothing to the story and could’ve been cut entirely, and that this book more or less is really derivative and doesn’t do anything that’s that different than any of the other Harlan Coben novels.
