I turned on this book, laid back, and never wanted to turn it off. The reader was awesome. The setting small t..Show More »own USA. The likable young hero primed for conflict and adventure. I knew right away this was going to be great! I was right. The story flowed effortlessly from Beginning to E.
And I didn’t forget the “ND” from the end. The book didn’t end. It just kinda stopped. I was shocked, and was sure I was wrong, even as I heard the familiar words, “Audible hopes you have enjoyed this program.”
I immediately went back to Audible to see if this was Part 1 of a series, but could’t find anything about it. Bummer. I’d really like to know what happens next. I really hope Harlan Coben has more coming.
The story was set in high school, with a 15-year-old Mickey Bolitar as the hero. He is at a new school in an unfamiliar town, and is thrust into 2 separate mysteries he must unravel, with help from his new, courageous, talented, outcast, lovable friends. Though he doesn’t know the town, the folks there seem to know him…freaky.
Good for most ages, this book shouldn’t be classified for teenagers only just because the cast is young. Most people in The States have been to high school, and everyone can identify with part of the story.
My only wish is to hear more! And 7 hours was not nearly enough. We just got to the center of the story, found the bad guys, the monsters, the secret society. Time for the hero to bare his basketball muscles and save the day! “Audible hopes you have enjoyed this program.” Arg.

PS Love these $4.95 sales for members. I would never have bought such a short book with one of my credits, so I would have missed this gem. Will definitely listen to it again. It is now in my re-run bucket, so to speak.
Did you read my review about Part 1 of this Mickey Bolitar mystery?
As soon as I saw that Part 2 was ..Show More »out and I had a credit, this book was in my library.
Again, I looked for any excuse to be listening–I even wanted to get at that dust way up by the ceiling. “No, I can’t come! I have to clean my house today”–Translate: I have the new Harlan Coben Mickey Bolitar story.
Although Mickey’s motivation strained my belief as the story progressed, I still loved the book, and want more. The reader, Nick Podehl, performed totally believably as a high school student.
I don’t agree with one of the reviewers that said this book is for kids only. These stories are for the kid in each of us. Personally, I never knew a high school where I was 6’4″, a varsity basketball player, and free to do whatever I want with no parental supervision. I never challenged the police or had unconditional support from a family member. But I don’t think anyone would want to read a mystery set in my high school years–I was closer to Christine than Mickey. For 7 hours, I got to be the Big Man on Campus.
So I listened almost without interruption, and again thought the book was too short. I hope there is more Mickey Bolitar coming soon!
I love all the Myron Bolitar novels. so I was excited to read books with his nephew, Mickey, as the main star. They're great!! I do wish Myron played ..Show More »a larger role and that he could be a part of Abiona (sp?). He's trying so hard with Mickey ... Anyway, I think the series is fantastic and I think the ending of Found is probably one of the BEST endings I've ever read! I'm really hoping for a 4th Mickey Bolitar but I don't know if that's in the cards. Either way, fantastic book!!
