Ten years after the high-profile kidnapping of two young boys, only one returns home in Harlan Coben's next gripping thriller, to be published in September 2016.
A decade ago, kidnappers grabbed two boys from wealthy families and demanded ransom, then went silent. No trace of the boys ever surfaced. For 10 years their families have been left with nothing but painful memories and a quiet desperation for the day that has finally, miraculously arrived: Myron Bolitar and his friend Win believe they have located one of the boys, now a teenager. Where has he been for 10 years, and what does he know about the day, more than half a life ago, when he was taken? And most critically: What can he tell Myron and Win about the fate of his missing friend? Drawing on his singular talent, Harlan Coben delivers an explosive and deeply moving thriller about friendship, family, and the meaning of home.

"As the action picks up, [Narrator Steven] Weber reads with a fierce intensity, raising his voice to an all-out roar at the climax of one particular chase sequence. Weber's range of accents - British, Indian, Italian, New Jersey, to name a few - is also impressive and adds another layer of enjoyment to this expertly narrated thriller." (AudioFile)
I have missed these Great characters They are like old friends. Great story and fantastic narrator. Mr Coban please do not make this the last book
Couldn't stop listening. The twists and turns were non-stop to the end and loved hearing Wins point of view along with my favorite character, Myron Bolitar. I also truly enjoyed including Micky and friends. Narration was truly excellent. mr Weber gave voice to all the characters in a truly believable way. Mr. Coben, hurry up and write another one.
I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!
I'm a fan of Harlan Coben novels but not of his Myron Bolitar series. (That MAY be because Myron Bolitar played basketball for Duke, or as we Tar Heels prefer "Dook".) 15 of Coben's 30 novels are in my Audible library. My favorites are the 3 novel teen series featuring Mickey Bolitar. Mickey is Myron's nephew. No one writes better suspense thrillers than Coben when he is at his best, and in Home he is at his very best. I will not discuss the story here except to say one should read the publisher's summary. The narrator, Steven Weber, has a great voice range and he is wonderful. Home is written in an unusual style in that much of it is first person in the voice of Myron's best friend Win. The rest is third person. I highly recommend this novel.
I love Myron and Win. But having all the other beloved characters like Esperanza, Big Cindy, and Myron's parents enhances the theme the title implies. Thrilled that the next generation, Mickey, Ema, and Spoon, played an integral role. Can't say enough about "Home".
Great characters. How can you not love Zora and it would have been nice to see the retro hooker's role expanded. Maybe in the next book. The story's sadness is lightened by the moments of comedy relief embedded in the dialogue. I plowed through this book, my interest always piqued. It really USA reunion of characters we have all come to know doing their thing. And, they do it well.
Love the mystery & narrator is great! Super voices! (There could have been longer space breaks when the story speakers switch, but listener can figure it out.) "toasty!"
There isn't anything I disliked about this book except the feeling of finality at the end. Once again Myron Bolitar and Wynn take you on a rollercoaster ride. Steven Weber captures the characters like only he can. Another great novel from Harlan Coben!
Love love love this series and this one did not disappoint. The narrator was fantastic.
