Hold Tight for a Fun Ride!

I have read so many of Harlan Coben's books and I've never been disappointed! Once you get involved in the suspense and the action, it's really hard to put his books down and this book is no exception. When children are in danger, despite their ages, I'm always reading in high gear. You want to somehow help, so you're riveted. The characters are real and you buy in at the very beginning! Mr Coben has given us another page turner and the pages just don't turn fast enough!

Tamer Psychological Thriller

An entertaining Coben. For once, a psycho torturer who doesn't have a major role and isn't that scary!

An entertaining Coben. For once, a psycho torturer who doesn't have a major role and isn't that scary!

Not my favorite Coben, but definitely entertaining for many hours in the car. A modern plot and overly mature teenagers made the story seem very plausible. A few plot lines quickly pulled together in the end made the ending seem a bit too convenient.

    Not Coben's best

    Normally, I LOVE Harlan Coben. This one, however, had too many characters and the author seemed to keep bouncing all over the place. The plot was okay, but there were some subplots that were again, all over the place. Not my favorite of his books.

    Okay, not great

    I don't know, I just couldn't jump up and down about this book. Easy to read, but the story was too predictable, and the characters not believable enough to merit even one more star. Just okay.

    Eh, not his best.

    I think Coben was reaching on this particular novel. The situations are anti-climatic and the core problems are over-hyped. Still - I finished the book in two days and the characters are loveable.. well a few of them. I don't think it went anywhere near where his other books have gone, though. A first time reader wouldn't know how creative and brilliant a writer Coben is. Recommended - but not to a first time reader of Coben's.
