Have you ever picked up a book not having a clue what to expect?
I have to say that I have a tendency to pick up books like this all the time…
As a librarian, I try very hard to not judge a book by its cover, but in this case, Caught by Harlan Coben drew me in by its cover. It’s just a simple cover with a red door to a home on it. That’s it. I opened the book, read the first few pages, and I was hooked.
This story is a complex one with many prominent characters. These characters all bring their own excitement to the mystery of the novel. As you read through it, you really have to pay attention to each detail or you will get lost in all the chaos that is going on in the book. First there is Dan who gets himself in trouble, big trouble… there is Wendy and there is Marcia, a mother who is deeply saddened that her daughter is missing…and nobody, not even the police detectives have a clue as to what has happened to her. Will see be found? Will she be found alive…?
This novel flows very quickly and there are twists and turns everywhere. If you are looking for a fast-paced read this one is for you. Before you know it, you will get caught up in the action and you will hate to see this one end. – Lynn Koenig, Adult Services
