Overview

Long Lost (Myron Bolitar Series #9) by Harlan Coben, Steven Weber

Myron Bolitar hasn’t heard from Terese Collins since their torrid affair ended ten years ago, so her desperate phone call from Paris catches him completely off guard. In a shattering admission, Terese reveals the tragic story behind her disappearance—her struggles to get pregnant, the greatest moment of her life when her baby was born…and the fatal accident that robbed her of it all: her marriage, her happiness, and her beloved only daughter.

Now a suspect in the murder of her ex-husband in Paris, Terese has nowhere else to turn for help. Myron heeds the call. But then a startling piece of evidence turns the entire case upside down, laying bare Terese’s long-buried family secrets…and the very real possibility that her daughter may still be alive.

In grave danger from unknown assailants in a country where nothing is as it seems, Myron and Terese race to stay a step ahead of Homeland Security, Interpol, and Mossad. Soon they are working at breakneck pace not only to learn what really happened to Terese’s long-lost little girl—but to uncover a sinister plot with shocking global implications.

“[A] compulsive page-turner.… The ‘this could be me’ factor lends poignancy to the thrills and chills.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“[Coben’s] genius is to make the seemingly mundane terrifying.” —Booklist (starred review)

I love Myron's character and the whole cast of characters, but this was not the Coben with heart and enthusiasm that I loved so much in the previous Myron novels. It is good, but not great. It seems that the long wait was because Coben has lost a connection with Myron. Is Myron too old, too stayed to really be out fighting the evils of the world, or is he becoming a lot like Lucas Davenport just old hat to the writer who wants to move on? I liked the novel but it was slow and somewhat unbelievable. Harlan, I see you in Myron, and maybe you need to liven up your life?

I should know better than to start a Harlan Coben book ten minutes before the World Series game between the New York Yankees and the Philadelphia Phillies. Thinking I could start Long Lost and then put the book down while I watched the game was foolish. Once Coben gets his hooks into you, you're stuck. His tightly crafted story keeps you turning the pages until you finish the book and realize that not only has three hours flown by, but so has the baseball game. But during those three hours, the reader is captivated. Long Lost is the newest entry in Coben's Myron Bolitar series, but if you haven't read any of his other Myron books, you will still be able to enjoy the story without being lost. Bolitar is a sports/entertainment agent in New York City. He receives a phone call from a woman he had a torrid affair with ten years ago, asking him to join her in Paris. Although memories might make any man run for the first available flight, Myron is involved with a single mom who lost her husband in 9/11. Myron and his loyal best friend/multimillionaire Win (think Bruce Wayne/Batman) are forced into a fight with a bully of a middle school basketball coach (anyone who has ever been involved in youth athletics will recognize the type). The coach humiliated Myron's girlfriend's son in front of a gym full of people, and when Myron calls him out on it, violence follows. Myron's girlfriend tells him that she is moving to Arizona, and when word comes down that the coach and his buddies are cops and Myron and Win could be in serious legal trouble for the beating they gave them, Myron decides that a trip to Paris is a good idea. Nothing is ever easy in Myron's life, so naturally his trip to Paris is fraught with danger. Terese, his long lost love, has brought him to Paris to help her find her ex-husband, whom she believes is in trouble. Terese's ex-husband is murdered, and she becomes a suspect. While Myron tries to help her clear her name, he runs afoul of Paris law enforcement, and somehow Homeland Security, Israeli Mossad, and Interpol become involved. Add in some weird kind of cult, genetic disease, and the possibility that Terese's daughter whom she believed she killed in a car crash years ago may still be alive, and you've got yourself a barn burner of a story. The great thing about Coben's books is that you never know where he is taking you. You can try to figure out where it is all going, but he always manages to surprise the reader in the end. You find yourself literally holding your breath as you read, and when you get to the end, you can finally let it out. Sometimes I'm surprised that I don't pass out from lack of oxygen before I finish reading. His characters are well drawn, and Myron is one of the classic good guys in comtemporary fiction. His relationship with his parents is touching, and he and Win make one of the best buddy teams around. One section of the book particularly interested me- Myron makes a visit to a doctor at the Terence Cardinal Cooke Health Center in New York, and I was so excited when I read that because my husband has a connection to the center. It was such a cool shout-out! I give Long Lost my highest recommendation. If you are looking a thriller with terrific characters, a fun sense of humor (his one-liners are hysterical)and one that will keep you turning the pages, pick this one up. Then get busy with the rest of the Myron Bolitar novels.

This book was like marshmellow fluff. Mr. Coben's books are usually thrillers that you do not want to put down. This book was a struggle to finish. Mr. Coben is capable of much better, this was one of his worst books.

I will continue to read Cobin's books because it is like James Patterson - easy read without troubling the mind

Harlan Coben remains one of my favorite authors. While his books are usually about someone thought long gone who suddenly reappears, his writing ability, pace and plot twists make for exciting reads. Long Lost shares the issue of the "found again" person and the pace of this novel keeps one on the edge of their seat. But the plot is weak, the supporting characters peculiar and unlikable, and the premise underlying this work is unbelievable while being trite at the same time. The book is elevated by his writing style while simultaneously being eroded by the story. If one can believe the premise then I have some land in Florida I would like to discuss with you. It reminded me of the last Lee Childs (Jack Reacher) novel in its attempting to jump on the bandwagon of modern day issues without the foggiest notion of how those things play out. Its like someone supporting a politician without having a clue what the politician stands for. Coben has done better.

I usually enjoy Myron Bolitar plots, but the woman character was crazy. The entire book was off center and had a very strange ending. I still don't know if the girl was hers. Did Myron stay with her? Who knows?

Harlen Coben is one of my favorite authors. Ever since being turned on to him a few years ago, I've read almost all he's written. This is a good book, but the plot twists just seemed a little unbelievable to me. The first two thirds of the book moved at a rocket pace. The last third seemed to crawl with a somewhat anti-climatic ending. Still, it was an enjoyable read.

I have never read anything by this author before, but I am very impressed and would definitely purchase other works by him. The entire book was well written, with good characters, and kept you wanting to know more. The action starts out early in the book and just keeps going until the last few pages. I would highly recommend this book to anyone that loves thrills, murder, and mystery!

I've been a big fan of Harlan Coben for years and haven't read anything by him that I didn't like until Long Lost. It's probably natural for a series to start to seem a bit repetitive and formulaic, but this book just seems like a lazy effort. A throwaway story with a kernel of cleverness in the plot. Reads like a mediocre episode of CSI. Nothing here I haven't seen before and not as fun as all the other Bolitar books. Coben's luster has faded a bit on this one, but will hope for a strong bounce back.

Major switch from the style of all the other Bolitar novels. International intrigue, a little far fetched. Still an ok read, but I miss the old Bolitar.

I really liked this story, but what I found to be quite chilling is this is something that could happen.
