David Burroughs is serving a life sentence in Maine for the brutal murder of his three-year-old son Matthew. A murder he didn't do. His wife Cheryl has remarried, and his former policeman father is on his deathbed. After having no visitors for five years, his sister-in-law Rachel shows up with a recent photo taken at Six Flags. She believes that a child in the background could be Matthew and when David sees it, he is convinced that his son is alive. In the spirit of the movie/TV series, The Fugitive, David sets out to find his son with help from Rachel, a disgraced, former investigative journalist who still has some good contacts. This action-packed mystery thriller kicks into high gear with a prison break and never lets up as David risks his life to find out who set him up for the murder and how to find his now eight-year-old son. And who was buried in Matthew's grave?
Harlan Coben is a favorite author. His stories are fast-paced and tense. I Will Find You is pure entertainment. While the plot often strains credulity, you need to just go with the flow and enjoy it. You'll be rooting for David as he gets closer and closer to the truth as time is running out. Coben's character Hester Crimstein makes a welcome guest appearance as Rachel's lawyer. This appealing standalone book satisfies with lots of creative twists and turns, like a ride on a rollercoaster at Six Flags.
