Page turner! From the back of the book: With unmatched suspense and emotional insight, Harlan Coben explores the big secrets and little lies that can destroy a relationship, a family and even a town.
I chose this suspenseful thriller as a mental palate cleanser after the intense experience of reading Red Pill by Hari Kunzru. Nap Dumas has never recovered from the night when his twin brother Leo died on the train tracks, and Nap's girlfriend Maura left town, never to be seen again. Now Nap, a cop, is drawn into an investigation that may uncover the secrets of the past. A quick, twisty read.
I‘m late to the Harlan Coben fan club, but I loved this book. HC has a way of weaving the story, and even when you think every stone has been uncovered... there‘s still one gut-punch left to be told. I took this one out from my local library, and not long after, they closed for the COVID-19 lockdown. I‘ll return it once they‘re open again... I might read this again to look for clues I might have missed the first time.
This was just a random book I picked up at a charity shop to get the two for one deal but it‘s ended up being one of the best books I‘ve ever read. It‘s the first #harlancoben book I‘ve read but certainly won‘t be the last. It was one of those books that perfectly is unpredictable but has you constantly trying to guess it. I love it and would definitely recommend!!
This was another page turner by Harlan Coben. I thought I knew what had happened but ended up surprised. I really enjoy Steven Weber‘s narration. I am about to read a print copy of one of these to see if it‘s the story or the narration that I‘ve liked.
Holy cow, look at this spread! Thank you so much, Doug! I have not read, nor do I own, any of these thrillers! I can‘t wait! And the fun socks, the sweet card, the patches and some Golden Girls... jackpot! 🎃 I ❤️ absolutely everything! #AllHallowsReadSwap
Thank you for hosting @MaleficentBookDragon !
Another cracking read from Harlan Coben, and he certainly keeps his reputation as the master mystery writer and the writer of the best unexpected twists. Not sure I‘ve ever known him write a bad book and this was up there with the best of them. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ This takes me up to 22 hrs 43 mins in the #24B4Monday Readathon.
I hadn‘t read any of Harlan Coben‘s books before so I wasn‘t sure what to expect, but I really enjoyed it. This is a well written, fast paced thriller, it‘s an easy read., but that doesn‘t mean there‘s no substance to it, just that pulls you in. There‘s a rhythm to it that flows so well. I thought the characters were great, Nap, Augie, Ellie, Maura and even Leo. #netgalley
This will be book number 38 of my year. Harlan Coben is easily becoming a favorite of mine. I think after the last one I read I am even more excited to begin this one.
I love when I am reading and a sentence stops me short. Who knows why something will resonates at that moment in time but when it does you sit up and take notice. It is especially interesting when it comes from a book that I am reading for pure entertainment and escape. Yesterday it was “Everyone has hopes and dreams”. I think if we can look at each of our fellow humans through that filter we might find ourselves a little more compassionate.
I just CANNOT get enough of Harlan Coben books! I never want to put them down and this one was no different. From the very beginning you are trying to figure out what happened and the twists keep coming. Check it out (or any of his others) because you won‘t be disappointed.
At work with about a million things to do, and all I want to do is read.
Ugh...IDK..I think my love affair with HC may be over😩😢This is a stand alone “thriller” but honestly Nap Dumas is an absolute clone of Myron Bolitar (who makes a cameo...fun) so not much originality going on. The story is the SAME FORMULA as all the other HC books, which is starting to wear thin. Somewhere between a so-so & pan. The witty snark is even feeling old. Still a page turner #BorrowNotBuy
I was hooked for the first half of the book. After that, it was too conspiracy theorist for me. Also, I think this book, as well as other Coben books, there are too many unbelievable surviving in hiding scenarios for me.
I did enjoy cameos of characters from Coben's Myron Bolitar series. I wonder if any of these characters show up in those.
Overall, these are reliable reads.
In my hotel starting to read but can‘t stop watching #My600lblife. 😳
This was good for a Harlan Coben. The latest twists of the book came almost too quickly for me towards the end. There was a lot of exposition and set-up and then at the end the reveals kept coming. At least they came. I really enjoyed the main character of this one & he‘s younger than Coben‘s usual protagonists so that was a nice change!
Harlan Coben shared on social media a cake he was given for his book hitting bookstands. That's a heck of a cake!!! If I got one like this, I'd feel bad because no one else would have anything to eat. 😆
I finished this amazing book in a day. Being too sick to go to work helped😷but never too sick to read. I love Harlan Coben. Have never read anything by him I didn't like. It's not a Myron Bolitar book, however,he does make an appearance. There are twists and turns galore. Nap lost his brother and girlfriend years ago but is still haunted by that night. He might be getting answers very soon and more than he bargained for!!
#TBRtemptation post 2! Soon to be released. New Jersey detective Napoleon Dumas hasn't been the same since high school, when his twin, Leo, and Leo's girlfriend were found dead and his girlfriend, Maura, left him. For 15 years, he's been looking for her and the cause of his brother's death. Now the answers may come from a suspected murderer's rental car, and the darkness gets darker. #blameLitsy #blameMrBook 😎
I love Harlan Coben! Binging on this show on Netflix as we speak!!!
Loved it! I so enjoy Coben's writing. Characters you can invest in and some twists. A 15 year old suicide/accident/murder ??? is the central force behind recent events. They'll need to reveal the truth about past events in order to solve crimes in the present. 💙🤓📚
