No Second Chance by Harlan Coben

No Second Chance 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 book 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 characters in different books, unless they are the same person. This character had the same name, but was a completely different person.
