The Boy From The Woods by Harlan Coben


The Boy from the Woods

Harlan Coben is a master of suspense. His books are like a game of ‘which shell is the pea under’. You have to pay close attention to multiple storylines within the main bombshell plot. And this one has my favorite character, Hester Crimstein.

Thirty years ago Hester discovered that her son, David had an imaginary friend at the edge of the woods. Only he wasn’t imaginary. He was a real boy, living in the woods with no name, no identification, nothing. Named Wilde, he is still a mystery even to himself.

When a local girl goes missing, the famous and oh so wonderful lawyer, Hester Crimstein, asks Wilde to use his skills to help find her. In doing so he finds that everyone is lying. Everyone is keeping secrets. Secrets that someone will kill to keep quiet. Is the missing girl part of some high school game or something more sinister?

An edge of your seat thriller with an ending I never saw coming. But it was a very satisfying one!

  1. I love Hester as well. I am so jealous, I was declined for this one, so am on the list at the library for it. Great review Patty.

    1. Our libraries all closed at 6 last night. Only on line services now. And I had tickets to see Harlan in Tulsa on the 19th. He cancelled. Boo Virus!

      1. Our libraries closed as well, so I will have to wait patiently for all the books I was hoping to read when I get home. I have had three plays/musicals cancelled that I had tickets for into April. Oh well, we all need to do what we can.
