Long Lost | [Harlan Coben]

Long Lost

Myron hasn't heard from Terese Collins in years. Not since their affair ended with no explanation. There had been no contact since, so her call catches him off guard. She's in Paris, she says, in trouble, and only Myron can help. She tells him a sad story she's never before revealed: a good marriage, her struggles to get pregnant, the happiest moment of her life when her only child was born, the day everything she'd ever loved was taken from her.

Publisher's Summary

Myron hasn't heard from Terese Collins in years. Not since their affair ended with no explanation. There had been no contact since, so her call catches him off guard. She's in Paris, she says, in trouble, and only Myron can help. She tells him a sad story she's never before revealed: a good marriage, her struggles to get pregnant, the happiest moment of her life when her only child was born, the day everything she'd ever loved was taken from her. In the years since, Terese has had no contact with her ex-husband, until the phone call that brought her to Paris.

When she gets there he's been murdered, and she's a suspect. But then comes a startling piece of evidence that turns the entire case upside down, laying bare Terese's long-buried family secrets in a most shocking way and leaving Myron nowhere to turn for help. Caught in a foreign landscape where nothing is as it seems, he must tear apart the city - and eventually the globe - fighting for answers to unfathomable questions that will take Myron, and millions of Harlan Coben readers, where they have never gone before.

    "The reader kills the audiobook"

    I am struggling to keep on listening to this book because the story is good but the reader is so terrible...exemple: This book's action takes place thru most of the book in France and the reader can't pronounce correctly a single french word whether a street name or any other french word and then has the audacity to try to use a "french accent" when he is reading the part of a french character of the book, and it sounds like an american person who has never been in France and doesn't even understand what a french accent sounds like...it is attrocious...please, I am sure that Mr Coben, having situated his latest book in France, had his saying in the choice of the audiobook reader...what happened to Scott Brick? Steven Weber has killed the audiobook. I have listend to pretty much every single one of Mr Coben's books made to audiobook and have adored every single one of them. Why did he change reader...it baffles me.

    "Myron Bolitar starring in "Boys From Brazil""

    I am a fan of the Bolitar series. After listening to the series, you know their voice, how they think, how they act, and their personalities. It was a jolt in the last book when the narrator changed. The prior narrator (Marosz) gave each character a voice that matched the character’s attitude and background. Now, another narrator change. No longer did the narration add to the story but it now distracted. Esperanza now sounds like a 70 year old man. Win no longer has that elite, pompous voice.

    If this was the first book of the series I read, it would definitely be my last. It is like a successful television series where all of a sudden it is determined the core of the show needs to change to appeal to a different audience. All of a sudden Myron’s sports agency is no longer important, his interaction with his family is minimized, and Esperanza is now an afterthought. (This may have been a plus because the narrator did such a horrible job with her voice that it was hard to listen to.) Even Win was somewhat marginalized. Plus, Myron’s and Win’s give and take was unmemorable.

    In previous books there was murder and bad things happening but there was still a funny and light mood interspersed in the story. Myron had been a good natured, funny, and warm person. Now Myron is darker and solemn.

    The story line was a real reach. It was sort of Myron in a remake of “Boys From Brazil” with a terrorism angle. I could normally follow and mentally visualize the prior stories. The plot of this story was just not plausible to me. Instead there was international intrigue, terrorism, which was interjected with a little political and social commentary. Change the names of the characters and I would not have been able to connect this to Bolitar series.

    The prior books were entertaining and enjoyable. Unfortunately, this one was not. I hope that the author gets back to the core (Myron’s wit, family & friend interaction, and a believable story line).

    "One of Coben's best books!"

    A Myron Bolitar story that takes Myron to Europe where through an old girlfriend he finds himself in the middle of a terrorist plot. Well Done.

    "My First Harlen Coben-not my last"

    This was an exciting thriller with all the elements I look for when I purchase this kind of book from Audible-a good story, suspense, likeable main characters and a good narrator. Stephen Weber does an excellent job. I couldn't get over how much he sounded like Scott Brick without Brick's melodrama when it isn't called for. I was surprised that there were two versions of this novel, both unabridged) with different narrators.

    "Okay for a light read."

    The plot was quite farfetched but the characterizations were interesting. I especially enjoyed the smart-aleck banter between our hero and the French detective.

    "Convoluted"

    started out great...loved the characters, especially Wynn.
    Then..somewhere it went off the deep end into a ridiculous storyline with waaaay toooo much going on, most of it unbelievable.
    Sorry, it lost me.

    "Myron & Win!!"

    I eagerly wait for Myron & Win. I love those characters and the stories. The only thing lacking in this series is the narrater from the earlier books, Jonathan Marosz. He is the best narrator and when he talks you know exactly which character he is portraying.

    "Great Book"

    I enjoyed this book from the begining, it was hard to stop listening at the end of my work day. It has a few twists in it and you will be surprised at the end.

    "Myron needs to man up"

    Is Myron Bolitar a man in his 40's or is he a 14 yr old? The narrator didn't help with this either. Way too much angst.

    "Really enjoyable"

    This was my 1st Coben book - now I'm back for more. Really enjoyed the narrator. I listen in my car - this kept me driving further distances.
