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.

What the Critics Say

"[A] compulsive page-turner... The 'this could be me' factor lends poignancy to the thrills and chills." (Publishers Weekly starred review)

    "Myron is My Fictional Boyfriend"

    First off, I love this series but I will admit not every story in this series is 5 star worthy. "Long Lost" is-- with the only exception being the narrator. He failed to give our beloved characters the voices they deserved. That being said, I got over it, only cringing here and there. The story was worth it. Loved the totally creepy cliff-hanger ending. Love Winn, Esparanza, Big Cindy and Mr. and Mrs. Bolitar. Please Harlan Coben, don't make me wait too long for more Myron Bolitar!

    "Great Story - Great Reader"

    "Long Lost" is a great story with a number of interesting "twists." It's a real suspenseful thriller with likable protagonists and humorous quips thrown in along the way. And, the reader is one of the very best I've ever listened to.

    "Good listen."

    Long Lost was a good listen. The book slowed just past the middle and some of the loose ends took too long to tie up, but the ending will leave you wondering about a possiblity you never imagined.

    "Mushy"

    Harlen Coben has gotten too sentimental. The first few Bolitar books were sharp and crisp. This one is too full of hesitations and sentimental feeelings that don't ring true. Bolitar has always been a bit of a dufus but now he's a sappy dufus.

    "Too many bad puns and quips"

    The good news is that this is a book that is easy to listen to and if you are a Coben fan, yolikely u will find it acceptable. However, I did not think it one his better efforts. This was a story with a modestly clever ending but you have to endure what I felt was an awkward blend of quips, puns and murders. Further, the quips and puns were mostly tired and in some cases repetitive (there were countless terrible puns involving the name of a stewardess named Mee). It seemed the French detective was thrown into the story to create a diversion from an otherwise lackluster group of characters. Bolitar needs to grow up - there are too many instances where he clearly knows what he should or shouldn't do and then does the opposite. This creates situations that he should not been part of. I know this is supposed to be fiction, but the coincidences are too improbable to take very seriously.

    "Thrift shop of ideas and plot"

    "The Boys and Especially The Girls from Conn."
    An improbable plot is swaddled in the impossible.
    H.C. conceives a homage to Ira Levin via Henny Youngman. Neither money nor likelihood impede the homophobic-homophile Bolitar. The narrative, at its best, is plodding. Imagine Thanksgiving with butter, gravy and whipping cream and nothing else.
    This is an immature, insubstantial effort meant to capitalize on some very important themes. The listener [no fault of the reader] simply doesn't care.
    Dragging in the Jean Reno-French cop for his "charisma" is an obvious, strained attempt to create false sentiment so that it will ache when le cop is knocked off... with undue gallantry.
    Coben would be better off offing Bolitar's friends. Good editing would get rid of the comic strip characters; and the Ira Levin updating may have worked. Without the editing, "Long Lost" is a novel chuck full of kitchen sinks.
    Coben has been much better.
    "Ladies and Gentlemen," as Bolitar would announce, "I give you "Long Lost"... Please keep it."

    "LOVED IT!"

    Just loved it! Myron Bolitar is one of my very favorite characters and Harlan Coben has never let me down! A riveting storyline that I could not leave. Hope there is more to come...and soon!

    "highly entertaining"

    I found this story plausible, very intriguing, with a wonderful French policeman character, and an excellent narration by the narrator. Not having listed to earlier Myron Bolitar audiobooks, I'm not accustomed to the other narrator. I truly enjoyed Weber's narration skills. Of course, good narration can only be accomplished with a good story, great dialogue, and great characters, amply provided by Coben.
