Book review - Don't Let Go by Harlan Coben

 I shuffled through various books a friend swapped with me. I needed a no-brainer entertaining read. Harlan Coben is a reliable writer and Don't Let Go filled the bill. Fast paced, this book churns with action and emotion. Coben fleshes out his characters and hasn't become a lazy writer. He still explores secrets, lies, and maintains suspense. 

New Jersey suburbs - Detective "Nap" Dumas hasn't been the same since high school. His twin brother, Leo, and Leo's girlfriend, Diana, were found dead on the railroad tracks. Nap's true love, Maura,  disappeared. 

cover blurb - For fifteen years, Nap has been searching  for Maura and for the real reason behind his brother's death. 

Fingerprints, an abandoned military base, childhood friends and a secret group. Nap embarks on a quest for answers - far more sinister than he dared imagine. 

I didn't let go of this book until I zoomed to the end and was surprised by the twists and turns. Thumbs up, good read.  


  1. Sounds like you did well to not let go of Don't Let Go. Glad you got lost in it, Joanne. Another author's name for my brain files. Thank you.

  2. Hi Joanne - sounds an easy read ... and he was known to me ... as Robyn mentions - I'll keep the book on the brain tap! Cheers - Hilary

    1. It's the kind to pick up on the super sale rack. Good to read on an airplane (if one does fly ever again)

  3. Sound like a page turner. Thanks for telling us about it.

  4. Appears to be a great book with a wonderful apt title for today.
