WOW!! What A Story!!
I don’t want to tell you too much because I don’t want to spoil any of the suspense the builds throughout this book but here are the basics:
This is the story of high school senior, Haley McWaid, the pride of her family, good grades, never gets in trouble, a little obsessive compulsive who doesn’t come home one night and goes missing.
It is also the story of Dan Mercer, a social worker, who works with troubled teens, who may be a sexual predator, as he is “CAUGHT” by a television show, hosted by Wendy Tynes who is on a mission to expose internet predators. It also delves into the lives of Dan’s old college roommates and how they may have complicated Dan’s life. The whole thing leaves Wendy worrying about who she can trust.
This story takes more twists and turns than an old country road and you better be belted in. It is a story filled with tension, stress, pressure, that challenges the reader. It is a thrilling, gripping, spine tingling novel that deals with things that could only be seen on television setting up shop in this community.
Harlan Coben takes all these plots and ties them together in what I believe will be the best book I read this year.
You will be “CAUGHT” from the first page and you will not be RELEASED even after the last word.
If you have not pre-ordered this book, you should do it NOW.
This is definitely not a book to me missed.
Harlan Coben is definitely one of the best authors of our time. His books have debuted as #1 on bestseller lists around the world. To read his biography, find a list of his 17 novels and more check out his website
