Audible Editor Reviews

Editors Select, March 2014 - While not my go-to genre, every now and then I like to sit back and take in a good mystery/thriller. So, when I saw that Harlan Coben was coming out with a new stand-alone novel, I felt it was the perfect time to try out something new from an author I knew well by reputation (through countless rave reviews from Audible members) but never read or listened to personally. Missing Youwas exactly what I was hoping for: a cleverly conceived, suspenseful thrill-ride with cops and bad guys. There's a taken-from-the-headlines sense to the story where 40-year-old NYPD detective, Kat Donovan, discovers an old love and stumbles upon a possible gateway into a mysterious crime world through an online dating site her friend signs her up for. If you are looking for some smart entertainment and the kind of book you just can't put down, I can highly recommend Missing You. For anyone who is already a Coben fan, Missing You offers something new in a strong female protagonist, and a strong female narrator in January LaVoy to boot! —Tricia, Audible Editor

Publisher's Summary

Number-one New York Times best-selling author Harlan Coben set huge sales records with last year’s Six Years - and he’s poised to do it again in his next breathtaking stand-alone thriller. Harlan Coben, author of six consecutive instant number-one New York Times best sellers and a total of 24 award-winning, best-selling, and internationally acclaimed novels, returns with another ripped-from-real-life thriller full of impossibly high emotional stakes and the real-to-life characters for which he has become famous.

    Story
    "was going along fine 'til the sap started flowing."

    Narrator was very good, but doesn't know a Jamaican accent. That aside, the story was good until it got seriously sappy. Still worth the time to listen.

    Story
    "Could not put it down"

    A thriller that will make you never want to stop listening A solid story that keeps you on your toes and has so many twist and turns that you will not know what will happen next. With the numerous sub plots and characters the story is totally unpredictable. Is it a detective story, a mystery or a romance novel? This book has a mixture of all three, however the bad guys are off the chart evil. Since I could not put it down, I gave it 5 stars.

    Story
    "Last 1/4 pulse-pounding; main character not great"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No.I've read a lot of Coben books & felt very positive at the idea of a female main character.Kat was not the brightest bulb. In fact, I wonder how she ever made it to the rank of detective. Her bff, who runs a detective agency, likewise seemed not very swift & rather like a cardboard cutout.The saving grace was Dana Phelps -- now THAT was a great female character.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    The threads of Kat's Dad & her ex-fiancee could have been axed. I liked Aqua (& he came in useful in the (father/fiancee) plot later),Kat's bff did very very little.Kat got more help from Chaz. He did some damn fine work of the detective variety. I got to looking forward to his calls to Kat. Stagger, Kat's supervisor, was a jerk; she was ridiculous for trying to crash his meeting, but his overkill reaction to this - transfer - made me think he was a party to her dad's murder.


    Which character – as performed by January LaVoy – was your favorite?

    I LOVED DANA PHELPS and pretty much loved her son Brandon as well.Sugar was also a great character, although I totally disagree with her making excuses for a man who beat her, saying he really hated himself. A man who inflicts his self-hatred on others thru violence isn't much of a man in my book--I don't care about his reasons. I also liked Chewie. And liked Gerard Remington & hated what happened to him. Liked Nurse Ratchet - not her real name - the prison nurse.

    What happened to Juicehead was PERFECT. I could see it as a scene in a TV movie or zombines TV show! All thanks to Fabulous Dana!


    Was Missing You worth the listening time?

    Yes, for the last 1/4.


    Any additional comments?

    With all that build-up I didn't think Jeff came close to being so great. The reason for his mysterious exit was unsatisfactory.Maybe I'm a dim bulb like Kat or was just too bored with her to care, but I still wasn't sure about what happened to her father.I enjoyed the prison scene with Nurse Ratchet -- whatever she was called, the one with the toothpaste on her teeth.

    "Oh what a tangled web we weave!"

    This book held my interest from the moment I picked it up. I usually listen on the way to and from work. Missing You had me listening all time, every spare minute. I loved the way the story lines all meshed. it has been a while since I read one of Harlan Coben's books. I won't wait so long agsin!

    "BEST COBAN BOOK"

    As soon as I saw Win's name I was hooked! I love Win and Myron! This book will not let go of you. The story is dark and modern. Coban does not glorify the events taking place in fat Ghandi's world but they are horrifying none-the-less. I love the justice and closure. Mr. Coban, YOU ARE IN FINE FORM WITH MISSING YOU!

    Story
    "Obnoxious and flat"

    This is my first novel by Harlan Coben, and for all the rave reviews I have to say that I am very underwhelmed. I find his writing style very irritating, to the point of being unable to listen to this to the finish.
    And while I don't think the narrator is the best, I think this has less to do with her than with the characters.
    Personally, I think the characters in this book are all very flat and far too much of a stereotype of stereotype. I find it very hard to emotionally connect with any of them, and so I don't particularly care about what happens to them. That's probably the main reason why I have such a hard time finishing this book, and I am not sure I will. The story itself also seems a bit dull, and about a third into the book it still seems a bit without direction, not knowing what it wants to be.
