Harlan Coben is a master at turning ordinary lives upside down. In THE INNOCENT, a man’s life is coming apart---for the second time. Matt Hunter, an ex-con trying to live down his past, is jolted from his suburban life when he becomes the prime suspect in a murder. In the prologue, Scott Brick’s narration introduces a guileless Matt, the innocent Maine college boy who tries to break up a fight and causes a death. Later, released from prison, Brick is appropriately cautious as Matt reenters society and beleaguered when Matt tries to find out the truth. Murder and menace color even the most improbable situations, and Brick makes it all believable. Coben’s serpentine plot twists and Brick’s intense performance make this choice listening.
