I found the pace a little slower than the usual Bolitar stories, but still exciting and keeps you guessing.

Very good story. Marsh's characters are always so interesting and real. This book is no different. Almost all of them have a motive for murder. A good read!

If you love Agatha Christie, but have already read all her books, Ngaio Marsh is for you. A bit more complicated, but just as quietly humorous.

Myron Bolitar hasn't heard from Terese Collins since their torrid affair ended ten years ago, so her desperate phone call from Paris catches him completely off guard. Terese reveals the tragic story of the fatal accident that robbed her of her daughter.

Now a suspect in the murder of her ex-husband in Paris, Terese has nowhere else to turn for help. Myron heeds the call.

In grave danger from unknown assailants in a country where nothing is as it seems, Myron and Terese race to stay a step ahead of Homeland Security, Interpol, and Mossad.

When Myron Bolitar reconnects with an old flame, things heat up, both for his emotions and mystery. This book will take you across the ocean to Paris and London and keeps you guessing right up to the very end. Easy, good read with some twists and turns thrown in.

Loved it,

Short book, so I read it in only two days. Plenty of action but nothing over the top or unbelivable. Very interesting interpersonal relationships, enough depth but again does not drag out.

I have seen Harlen Coben on Murder by the Book on Tru TV, but have never read any of his books.

I am now a fan & will be reading many more!

After receiving a phone call from his former girlfriend, Terese Collins, Myron Bolitar flies to Paris to help her search for her ex-husband. But by the time he gets there, Terese is a suspect in Rick Collins murder. While investigating the murder, Myron is arrested, beaten, shot and tortured. He also learns that Terese and Rick once had a daughter who died in an accident. Evidence shows that Rick may have found out their daughter is alive. Now Myron and Terese work to uncover her whereabouts.

This is the 9th book in Coben's Myron Bolitar series. This story was very different from the previous eight books. This time Myron is dealing with terrorists and international politics. The mood is more serious, but we still have Coben's trademark humor, especially when it comes to jokes about Win's latest girlfriend, Mee. Even though I liked the book and was surprised by the ending, I would rather Coben go back to the old style of more mystery and less thriller. My rating: 4 Stars.

Another hit by Coben! I couldn't put the book down, because I wanted to find out what was going on! The story moves from New York to Paris to London and back to New York... and Coben ties it all together at the end! I highly recommend not just this book, but any book by Harlan Coben!

Always a great read for adventure, suspence, and thrilling outcome. Can't go wrong with a Harlan Coben novel.
