Missing You | [Harlan Coben]

Missing You

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.

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

    "A Brand New Fan"

    Mr Coben -- I had never heard about you until I signed up for your pre-release, caught up in the excitement, much like when I go shopping and just HAVE to have this article. Well I am TOTALLY glad I did! You are now my new favorite and January is brilliant; thank you for your wise choice of readers.

    When this book started, skipping to another plot, I daydreamed somewhat until I decided hey, I have missed something important here! So I went back to the beginning (after probably 1/3 the way through) and I am SO glad I did! This book is so well balanced with the good, the bad and the ugly! You are now my favorite author, and January my favorite narrator. I was blown away by this book, needless to say!

    I have a wide variety of interests in reading, and few favorite authors, with fewer still readers. Mr Coben, I am going to read all your books. If they are just half as good as Missing You, you have a new fan for life!

    "Coben never disappoints"
    Any additional comments?

    Most of the audible books I buy I end up rating a 4 or a 5. After listening to this book, I realize I should save my ratings of 5 for a book like this. Harlan Coben is great, although after a while Myron Bolitar can get boring. I have enjoyed many Bolitar books, but there has never been a non-Bolitar book that I would not rate a 5 or above.
    The narrator for Missing You was excellent even though I usually prefer male narrators, especially Scott Brick.
    Highly recommend this novel!

    "Still Missing"
    Would you try another book from Harlan Coben and/or January LaVoy?

    I LOVE Harlan Coben BUT if this book had been my first - I would have NEVER tried another


    Any additional comments?

    This book has a VERY boring beginning, in fact I was a few chapters in still trying to figure out what I had purchased and was going to return it when it got interesting.
    Decent ending which helped make up for the horrid beginning......

    "Good but not Great"

    This story was neatly put out. I had figured it most out from about a third into the book. So I wasn't in for many surprises. A bit predictable yet still entertaining. After you've read enough if these books you may want to be challenged a little more. The narration was excellent. Overall it wasn't a bad book. But it was by no means a classic.

    "Had everything!!!!"
    If you could sum up Missing You in three words, what would they be?

    A real pageturner

    Kat. She is a really good heroine.


    What does January LaVoy bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Super narrator.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes!


    Any additional comments?

    This book was one of the more entertaining books I've read in a long time. It was good storytelling and I didn't have to become a philosophizer to enjoy it lol.

    "OUTSTANDING Book!"

    I started this book about 2 days ago and could NOT stop listening to it when I got home tonight. I was glued to it. I found myself cheering out loud for Dana Phelps and absolutely loved the characters. I've listened to several books on Audible now, some thrillers and some nerdy school material, and this is HANDS DOWN the best book. When you find yourself talking out loud to the characters, it says something about the way the book sucks you in.
    I am grateful that the writer was able to tie everything together and provide a satisfying ending.
    Wonderfully written and beautiful narrative.

    "Solid though not his best"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Yes. Coben is still a master storyteller, though this is not one of my favorites.
