Darkest Fear by Harlan Coben

Myron Bolitar's ex, Emily Downing, tells him he's the father of her son, a dying 13-year old boy. Jeremy is in desperate need of a bone marrow transplant, but the donor vanishes without a trace. Staggered by this news, Myron plunges into a search for the missing donor that leads him into a mystery involving a broken family, a brutal kidnapping spree, and the FBI.

I wasn't really that into this book when I first started reading it ... it was a bit of a slow starter. But, by the end I was hooked. And in fabulous twisty writing style, the end was not the end, there were at least another 40 pages where the satisfactory expected ending got pulled apart and re-written. Definitely an enjoyable read!
