Publisher's Summary

Ten years after the high-profile kidnapping of two young boys, only one returns home in Harlan Coben's next gripping thriller, to be published in September 2016.

A decade ago, kidnappers grabbed two boys from wealthy families and demanded ransom, then went silent. No trace of the boys ever surfaced. For 10 years their families have been left with nothing but painful memories and a quiet desperation for the day that has finally, miraculously arrived: Myron Bolitar and his friend Win believe they have located one of the boys, now a teenager. Where has he been for 10 years, and what does he know about the day, more than half a life ago, when he was taken? And most critically: What can he tell Myron and Win about the fate of his missing friend? Drawing on his singular talent, Harlan Coben delivers an explosive and deeply moving thriller about friendship, family, and the meaning of home.

Critic Reviews

"As the action picks up, [Narrator Steven] Weber reads with a fierce intensity, raising his voice to an all-out roar at the climax of one particular chase sequence. Weber's range of accents - British, Indian, Italian, New Jersey, to name a few - is also impressive and adds another layer of enjoyment to this expertly narrated thriller." (AudioFile)

WOW

Couldn't stop listening. The twists and turns were non-stop to the end and loved hearing Wins point of view along with my favorite character, Myron Bolitar. I also truly enjoyed including Micky and friends. Narration was truly excellent. mr Weber gave voice to all the characters in a truly believable way. Mr. Coben, hurry up and write another one.

Typical of Harlan Coben at his best!

I'm a fan of Harlan Coben novels but not of his Myron Bolitar series. (That MAY be because Myron Bolitar played basketball for Duke, or as we Tar Heels prefer "Dook".) 15 of Coben's 30 novels are in my Audible library. My favorites are the 3 novel teen series featuring Mickey Bolitar. Mickey is Myron's nephew. No one writes better suspense thrillers than Coben when he is at his best, and in Home he is at his very best. I will not discuss the story here except to say one should read the publisher's summary. The narrator, Steven Weber, has a great voice range and he is wonderful. Home is written in an unusual style in that much of it is first person in the voice of Myron's best friend Win. The rest is third person. I highly recommend this novel.

Best ending ever!

Loved it! Suggested read. Ending alone was worth reading. Harlan Coban really knows how to keep you interested.

Long awaited; Did not disappoint!

I love Myron and Win. But having all the other beloved characters like Esperanza, Big Cindy, and Myron's parents enhances the theme the title implies. Thrilled that the next generation, Mickey, Ema, and Spoon, played an integral role. Can't say enough about "Home".

Best Bolitar So Far!

Myron Bolitar's back... With a clever plot device that teases your imagination... Question: Is a child, kidnapped at age 6 in any way predictable in a 16 year old body if he's discovered? Is that boy still the child of his parent's? Of course the parents will have no difficulty answering that question... But what about the 16 year old? Is he identifiable beyond fingerprints or DNA?

Here are powerful questions about what determines who we are... Who anyone is. But that's a piece of the questions which tumble out of Coben's clever plotting. And here the ensemble's more satisfying than ever.

However there seems to be something new in "Home". Windsor "Win" Horne Lockwood, III - Myron's sidekick's- mind is open to us. Win's discussions, interactions, even his thoughts are now as important to the story arc as Myron's own.

This technical change has added a freshness to the series which had slowed somewhat in "Live Wire". As usual however, while "Home" is a barrel that stands upon its own bottom... don't start this series here. Nope, enjoy the way that the players grow with this series and start it from "Deal Breaker" (which is on sale as I write these words). You'll thank me.

Steven Weber does a fine job of bringing the cast to life and dealing audibly with the challenge of two characters (Win and Myron) who pretty much share the lead roles.

Liked it a lot.... 15 stars worth!

Engrossing and satisfying

Great characters. How can you not love Zora and it would have been nice to see the retro hooker's role expanded. Maybe in the next book. The story's sadness is lightened by the moments of comedy relief embedded in the dialogue. I plowed through this book, my interest always piqued. It really USA reunion of characters we have all come to know doing their thing. And, they do it well.
