  1. I know some may think Harlan Coben beneath them, but let me explain why I find myself enjoying his books First, I m tired as heck of books where nothing happens but blushes hidden and a cough of disapproval Second, I always had a fondness for books on killers not to understand myself, but the opposite, I assure you Third, I agree with most of Coben s values, like this snippet from No Second Chance Edgar belongs to that unique class of the entitled who have deluded themselves into believing that [...]


  2. No Second Chance is a first rate crime thriller, somewhat slow at times but overall very engaging and well written.


  3. I have mixed feelings about Harlan Coben The first novel I read of his was part of the Myron Bolitar series and I so seriously disliked Myron and his sarcastic ways that I dismissed Cobens books completely.Then, a long airplane ride forced me to reconsider and I found myself enjoying his Tell No One Smart, complicated and a likable protagonist a far cry from Myron.No Second Chance falls between the two ends of the spectrum, but closer to the good end As I ve learned is his usual set up, his prot [...]


  4. Dr Marc Seidman has been shot twice, his wife has been murdered, and his six month old daughter has been kidnapped When he gets the ransom note he knows he has only one chance to get this right But there is nowhere he can turn and no one he can trust.Okay, so this book is a little can t happen in real life but Harlan Coben is such an incredible writer that you kinda forget it and just let yourself be sucked in.


  5. NO SECOND CHANCE Pub 2003 by Harlan Coben kept me turning the pages right up until the end The story kicks off with a bang and gave me no choice but to read on because I had to find out what would happen next.Marc Seidman wakes up in the hospital, recovering from surgery to remove a bullet lodged in his chest during a home invasion He quickly finds out that his wife was also shot and killed, and his infant daughter has been kidnapped Seidman is desperate to find his daughter but his search is im [...]

  7. Another AWESOME page turner from Coben In the ending just when you think you ve got it all figured out it heads in a direction you ll never see coming No Second Chance is about Dr Marc Seldman who has just come out of a coma after getting shot twice, waking up in a hospital and finding out that his wife has been killed and his 6 month old daughter has mysteriously disappeared, but not long after Seldman receives a ransom demand from an unknown party, and saying if he tries anything stupid he ll [...]


  8. 4.5 stars I had said it before I would lay down my life in a second to protect my daughter And truth be told, if push came to shove, I would lay down yours too This is my first read of a Harlan Coben book I admit I was impressed A coworker suggested him to me when we were discussing our favorite books authors last week She had glowing praise for him, so I located a book quickly and got started Within a very short amount of time, I was hooked and wanted to keep on reading As you can probably tell [...]


  9. Yeah, Coben s stories are a little formulaic and predictable, but I love them nonetheless They are exciting and fast reads I like the earlier ones better than the recent, and No Second Chance is one of my favorites He earned his money the old fashioned way He inherited it The things were handed to you on a silver platter, the you complain about welfare mothers and government handouts He belongs to that unique class of the entitled who have deluded themselves into believing that they somehow e [...]


  10. This book wasn t my favorite Coben book I really enjoyed it at first, but then it just started to drag The thing that really bothered me about this one was that the main character Marc Seidman has the same name as a main character in Coben s first book, Play Dead In a letter to readers at the beginning of Play Dead, Coben mentions that sometimes he borrowed details from Play Dead and used them in other books I didn t like that, because it seems like writers should not use the same name for chara [...]


  11. Dr Marc Seidman has been shot, his wife murdered and his baby daughter kidnapped When Marc is finally ready to go home from the hospital his wealthy, priggish father in law summons him to see the ransom note.Seidman goes against instructions and involves the police and things go terribly wrong Marc soon finds himself turned upside down in an attempt to try and find his daughter.Just when you think you have it figured out the story hits another bump and twist and you start all over A great set of [...]


  12. Harlan Coben does a great job of giving his characters interesting professions and portraying them well There s enough detail to make you think he was a plastic surgeon in a past life.This novel was funny but the support characters are a little unbelievable At one time or another three of them lend the protagonist their cars, one of which had just met him.Nevertheless it is the same page turning thriller that this best selling author is famous for.


  13. Being a forever Jersey Girl even though I m now located in MT Even if HC s books weren t packed with wit and a sharp Jersey edge I think I would still like them based on how familiar the locations are This book is no exception, and although I enjoyed it very much, I must admit it should be nominated for some most sub plots ever award.


  14. Another fantastic page turner from Coben This novel had such thrilling moments that I found myself totally and completely immersed in it and in complete Coben tradition, a 180 hits you at the end which I love Great book Coben is a must read author


  15. Interesante e inquietante novela, de esas que te agarran en las primeras p ginas y ya no te sueltan.Me han gustado especialmente las reflexiones que el autor va haciendo a trav s de los pensamientos del protagonista, tanto las que hace de manera reflexiva intentando analizar lo que le est pasando como aquellas en las que razona bajo mucha presi n y de manera precipitada.La trama est bien trazada, los personales est n bien dibujados, Coben logra mantener el nivel de atenci n casi, casi durante to [...]


  16. This book was great and definitely my favorite kind of book, psychological thriller The author never disappoints Harlan Coben is always one of my favorites I could not put this book down I ve spent all weekend reading it and it was well worth it I will continue to read any book I can by this author.


  17. It was very sad what became of the friendship between Marc Lenny As always Mr Coben delivered an awesome read


  18. Another great Harlan Coben missing person mystery You never know what to expect with his books, which makes you keep reading until the very end


  19. No second chance ltima oportunidad es otra buena novela de Harlan Coben, pero, como suele ser habitual en l, no aprovecha el potencial de la trama para desarrollar un producto redondo A saber, la descripci n de los personajes es excelente, los di logos muy cre bles, el desarrollo de los acontecimientos est muy bien secuenciado, pero qu le falta En mi opini n, a medida que avanza la novela, va perdiendo fuelle, quiz s por entrar en demasiadas reflexiones morales sobre el tema en cuesti n en este [...]


  20. No Second Chance was everything that I expected it to be It was fast paced, page turning action that constantly left me wondering what could possibly happen next This is my third book by Coben and although it wasn t my favorite that still remains as my first read Tell No One by Coben it was a solid second In this book Dr Marc Seidman wakes up from a coma to realize that he has lost everything His infant daughter has disappeared and his wife is dead The worst part of all is that all of Marc s mem [...]


  21. I have read a fair few of Harlan Coben s books, and they certainly keep me turning the pages The trouble is, they re a bit like McDonalds burgers you really fancy one, but after you ve finished it you feel unsatisfied and a bit empty Doesn t stop you fancying another one though.This book was a real HC by numbers, although thank God it didn t have that godawful Hester Crimstein in it All the other usual plot lines were there though the teenage love affair that cast a long shadow over all future r [...]


  22. When you dream about the mystery unraveling in the book you are reading, you can be pretty certain it is a great book Yes, even in my sleep I was trying to solve the mystery presented in NO SECOND CHANCE Dr Marc Seidman is a plastic surgeon He lives with his wife, Monica and his infant daughter, Tara Marc is not the type of plastic surgeon you normally think of when you hear the term Marc does facial reconstruction on children and adults who have been injured or who were born with facial deformi [...]


  23. This book started off kind of interesting, with Marc, the main character waking up after having been shot, to find out that he has been comatose for two weeks and his wife is dead and kid is missing Despite the potential of the beginning, this kind of book is one of the reasons I hate reading modern mystery action thriller novels When the main character says he trusts his old buddy Larry with his life and would do anything for him, well then we just all know Lenny was the one that did it And gue [...]


  24. Marc Seidman wakes up in ICU to find his wife has been murdered and his baby daughter, Tara, has vanished.This story is NOT hot off the press as Harlan wrote this novel in 2003 Does this 391 page crime thriller seem out of date, reading it 11 years after it was first published NO this book is a stonking good read and it DOES NOT show it s age What you get is a first class read that fully entertains you from start to finish No Second Chance is a FULL story will loads of detail and lots of twists [...]


  25. I always like Coben s books Good thriller and good plot.Back Cover Blurb When the first bullet hit my chest, I thought of my daughter Marc Seidman wakes up in ICU to find his wife has been murdered and his baby daughter, Tara, has vanished Then something arrives to give Marc new hope a ransom note We are watching If you contact the authorities you will never see your daughter again There will be no second chance.The note is chilling, but Marc sees only one thing the chance to save his daughter A [...]


  26. This book started off a little slow for me Once it picked up though, it grabbed me and wouldn t let go That s what I m finding out about Mr Coben s books, he takes you on a whirlwind ride and spins you around until you are dizzy with intense anticipation to find out what the heck is going on He s becoming a fast favorite of mystery suspense novels to read for me.



  27. It was inevitable I was going to have to dislike or be disappointed by a Harlan Coben book and this was it It didn t suck me in as they normally do, it picked up but then became too much of a mind scramble then got too sappy, sentimental and lifetime movie at the end I don t think it helped that I recently read another book with a near identical storyline guy who never gets over his college gf we had a special connection least favorite HC book but at the same time if this was the worst, I ve fou [...]


  28. The story line of this book is very different from other books I have read by Harlan Coben Did it have a WOW Factor compared to his other books, I would say NO Interesting but not Fantastic That s why a gave it Four Stars
