Darkest Fear

Author(s): Harlan Coben


Myron tries desperately to save the life of the son he never knew he had

Myron never saw it coming. A surprise visit from an ex-girlfriend is unsettling enough. But Emily Downing's news brings him to his knees. Her son Jeremy is dying and needs a bone-marrow transplant - from a donor who vanished without a trace. Then comes the real shock: the boy is Myron's son, conceived the night before her wedding to another man. Stunned by the news, Myron plunges into a desperate search for the missing donor. But finding him means unraveling a dark mystery that involves a broken family, a brutal kidnapping spree, and the FBI. Somewhere in the sordid mess is the donor who disappeared. And as doubts emerge about Jeremy's true paternity, a child vanishes, igniting a chain reaction of heartbreaking truth and chilling revelation.

Product Information

An excellent, gripping Myron Bolitar novel from the No.1 bestselling author of TELL NO ONE and PROMISE ME. Reissued in the stunning cover design behind Harlan Coben's brand new novel, THE WOODS. All the backlist are being reissued in the new livery in 2007. Coben is now widely recognised as one of the thriller genre's biggest stars. He is also a Sunday Times and New York Times bestseller and had three titles in the 2004 Guardian fastseller chart. Harlan Coben always receives fantastic reviews: 'This is top-notch thriller writing' Observer. 'A criminally good novel ... [a] plot with so many twists and turns I felt both giddy and wildly exhilarated by the end. What makes Harlan Coben so special is his ability to pick ordinary people who harbour extraordinary, and often deeply dark, secrets' Daily Mirror. 'He is a superb writer and a devilish plotter ... Take my word, this story is exceptional' Independent on Sunday. Tell No One is in the advanced stages of being made into a Hollywood movie with Michael Apted directing.


Harlan Coben was the first ever author to win all three major crime awards in the US. He is now global bestseller with his mix of powerful stand-alone thrillers and Myron Bolitar crime novels. He has appeared in the bestseller lists of THE TIMES, the NEW YORK TIMES, LE MONDE, WALL STREET JOURNAL and the LOS ANGELES TIMES. He currently lives in New Jersey with his wife and four children.
