I think Harlan Coben is a very talented author and I absolutely love his Myron Bolitar series. The book was well-written and I loved the interactions between the characters. However, the plot of Long Lost didn't work for me. I didn't understand the terrorist plot, which was convoluted and not very plausible, IMO. I don't know why Coben veered away from the sports aspect, but I missed that and I hope he brings it back next time. This wasn't a bad novel by any means, just not what I come to expect from this series.
Loved it! Granted, the plot was a bit far-fetched, but its Myron and Win! You gotta love Myron and Win. Especially Win. *fans herself* Although the plot was very serious, there were definitely moments that caught me laughing out loud. I love Win's dry, sarcastic wit. The play on words that Win uses when talking about Mee, his "flight attendant", were hilarious!
Myron Bolitar is the agent extraordinaire to famous clients. So, when he gets a desperate phone call from an ex-lover in Paris, her troubled voice compels him to drop everything and go. Now the writing becomes breathless as everything is not what it seems. Murder, mayhem, terrorists, even stem call research. All of this comes together in a breathtaking plot that will scare your socks off. The writing is taut and slick. Coben is a master of suspense!
