Review

Sadly, I cannot recommend this Harlan Coben novel. I’ve read just about all of his previous books, and they have been excellent, but I am at a loss as to why this one has his name on it. Truly, it is so dreary and silly, so boring, so very dull that I am having a very hard time believing he wrote it. It’s not even close to the quality of his previous writing. Perhaps he didn’t; many bestselling authors (James Patterson comes to mind) are getting teams of people to write for them and put their own name to it because it will usually result in sales regardless of how bad it is.

Kat, the female police officer hangs out at a bar her dead father, also a policeman, used to frequent and sits on the stool he used. Her best friend, voluptuous and seductive, is a private investigator – but we don’t really see her investigating anything. She is too busy flirting with men and when they approach her, rejecting them as unworthy. She is a caricature. A teenage boy’s fantasy. Brandon, a precocious teenager seeks Kat out to help him find his missing mother and this is the basic plot of the tedious, plodding and lifeless story. Missing You by Harlan Coben ePub

It has a sprinkle of everything: The aforementioned well-endowed friend; a black homosexual cross-dresser (the only character even remotely interesting and fleshed out) a chain-smoking gravel-voiced mother in denial of her husband’s other life, a boss with suspicious actions around her father’s death, a vapid ex-lover who dumped her and -wait for it- she still loves and pursues. Then there are the evil monsters responsible for the kidnappings of many people. There are even zombie overtones with people in coffin-like boxes. The mafia don was a mere sketch and so vapid I couldn’t believe why Coben didn’t flesh him out at least a bit. None of these characters are engaging. They are like stick-people. The plot is improbable, the ending ridiculous and the entire book a failure that had so much potential. Missing You by Harlan Coben ePub

By the time I got to the predictable end, I couldn’t care less what happened to any of them.

Honestly, I have no ax to grind with one of my all-time favourite authors, but where the heck did this silly romance posturing as a thriller come from. Not from the pen of Coben unless he was channeling a teenager. I suppose this may have been an attempt to market the book to a YA audience while keeping his loyal readers in the process. It just didn’t work. I paid nearly $20 for this and I regret not researching it since the sample seemed as if it might be ok. It wasn’t. Two thumbs down.
