Just One Look by Harlan Coben

Review by Matt Plaisted (Year 12)

Just One Look is a stand-alone novel written by Harlan Coben.  It begins with the main character, Grace Lawson, taking a trip down to the local Photomat to pick up some photos onf her family's latest holiday.  Grace finds an unfamiliar photo in the package.  It is a picture of a group of friends standing together, one of whom resembles her husband Jack in his younger days.  But there is something strange about this picture.  Why does one girl in the photo have a cross over her face?  Little does Grace know, but she is about to uncover a massive secret ...

Only minutes after Jack sees the photo, he disappears.  Now Grace must uncover the mystery of his disappearance, and the photo.  Is it a coincidence, or was it put there on purpose?  With the help of an acquaintance from Grace's past, who has connections to the mob, Grace seeks answers.

This book is one of those books that it is really hard to put down.  The characters are really well written and the excitement builds up gradually and the twists and turns keep you guessing all the way.  It is a great read.

  1. Matt I read this book earlier in the year and really liked it. The ending was really good and I didn't guess what was coming. I have a new Harlan Coben to read in the next couple of weeks and I'm looking forward to it. Ms Schaumann
