Don’t Let Go by Harlan Coben

Don't Let Go by [Coben, Harlan]

Synopsis:

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 in this powerful new thriller.

Suburban New Jersey Detective Napoleon “Nap” Dumas hasn’t been the same since senior year of high school, when his twin brother Leo and Leo’s girlfriend Diana were found dead on the railroad tracks—and Maura, the girl Nap considered the love of his life, broke up with him and disappeared without explanation. For fifteen years, Nap has been searching, both for Maura and for the real reason behind his brother’s death. And now, it looks as though he may finally find what he’s been looking for.

When Maura’s fingerprints turn up in the rental car of a suspected murderer, Nap embarks on a quest for answers that only leads to more questions—about the woman he loved, about the childhood friends he thought he knew, about the abandoned military base near where he grew up, and mostly about Leo and Diana—whose deaths are darker and far more sinister than Nap ever dared imagine.

Harlan Coben is a master of this genre. His characters are one of the things that I love about his writing. They are all painfully human and real. Nat is a good one.

When Maura’s fingerprints turn up in a rental car, with a dead cop on the street. A dead cop who also was part of their high school group, Nat wants to know what’s going on and goes to the only real friend he has, Augie, whose daughter died with Nat’s brother.

Nat is completely clueless as to what happened but he knows people are dying and they all have one thing in common. You’ll have to read it to find out that one!

Nat is determined to find out what happened that night, no matter what the consequences. And trust me there are plot twists everywhere you look. As usual once I started the book I read it straight through while biting my fingernails.

There isn’t a whole lot I can say about Mr. Coben. I’ve read every one of his books and watched his ‘The Five’ on Sky TV. It’s also now available on Netflix and it is so good I’ve watched it three times.  How did I watch it on Sky when I live in the US? Well that’s when you have good friends who will Skype you and let you watch!

Great Sunday to read a Thriller and this a good one to start! Oh and guess who makes a guest appearance in this book? Yep! Myron!!

  1. I haven’t thought about Harlan Coben in forever! My sister and I would buy his books in college and then ship them to each other to share the fun on limited income. Great review and thanks for putting a smile on my face with a happy memory!

  2. This book seems pretty interesting. I haven’t read anything good lately, and have been looking for something that has a lot of twists and turns. Perhaps I should visit my library and check this book out.
