15 Seconds by Andrew Gross

Plastic surgeon Henry Steadman is in Jacksonville, Florida when, in a case of mistaken identity, the police believe that he murdered a cop during a traffic stop.  Wanted by the authorities, Henry makes his way to a friend's house and finds him dead. Not knowing whom he can trust, he is on the run and completely in the dark about why he's in this situation. He decides to plead his innocence to Carrie Holmes, who's manning the phones for the police hotline. While the police believe Henry is a killer, Carrie decides on her own to follow some leads that Henry gives her and soon realizes that he could be innocent. Racing against time, Henry comes to the realization that he must hunt down the real killer...  A great read-alike for Harlan Coben.
