great story line
Loved Myron Bolitar series was very sad to see it end but this series is almost as good
cant wait for the next books
Business owner, mother of 2 amazing kids, wife to 1 "gardener-in-training" and seeker of the truth. Always.
Loved the transition from Book 1 into the second. At times, the charcter, who is 14, comes across as way too mature for this years. Other than that, a page turner.
I am a wife of 30 years, mother of 4 wonderful grown children and a retired teacher....one of my new goals as I turn 50 this year is to become an author! I listen to one story on audible a week I am an addict!
The narrator is a good choice for series; he has a youngish voice that fits Mickey Bolitar. This story seemed like it took forever to set up, and that the main storyline was rather weak. Even so, there were several surprises and twists that made it worthwhile. Chief Taylor in particular is a bit of a chameleon.
71-year-old grandmother who has been an avid reader all my life. I have recently retired from being a litigation attorney (for Plaintiffs).
I got my books mixed up and listened to Book 3 before Book 2. However, This book really was necessary in order to understand Book 3. I will probably listen to book 3 again. I really liked this book in comparison to the other two. It has some real plot twists, particularly in explaining the death of Rachel's mom. It was logical and advanced the story a great deal. I do find it a little boring how Mickey continues to say he simply will not lie, no matter who the truth hurts. I don't find that to be particularly realistic, but the author needs it for the story to move in the right direction. I have listened to better series, but I still would recommend this one to people who are not looking for particularly deep plots.
Harlan Coben does a great job of telling Mickey's story, crafting an interesting mystery while simultaneously making us feel the familiar pangs of high school angst such as sports, friends and crushes.
They Myron Bolitar series is one of my favorites, and Mickey is a chip off the ol' block.
This book has a great amount of suspense, and a more plausible story than the previous one in the series.
The narration is excellent and makes a big difference, particularly when there are characters of all ages.
I can't wait for the next book in this series.
