Format: Hardcover
The last couple of Harlan Coben novels I read were stand-alones. They were enjoyable but not fully satisfying. In Home, Coben returned to the Myron Bolitar series. He has also returned to form.

Win Lockwood is searching for two boys, kidnapped in New Jersey, who have been missing for ten years. He’s related to one of them. When he finally spots the other boy, three thugs get in his way. Three dead thugs later, the boy is gone, prompting Win to call Myron Bolitar for help.

Harlan Coben doesn’t usually write jaw-dropping prose, although he occasionally comes up with something clever (“a purple top so tight it could have been sausage casing”). Coben does, however, knows how to keep a story moving, and that’s good enough for a thriller, provided the story is interesting. “Interesting” isn’t a sufficiently forceful word to describe the plot of Home. The captivating story keeps the reader emotionally involved while pondering the fate of the two boys.

The parents of each boy are believable characters. Each parent is obviously the victim of tragedy, but the full nature of their respective tragedies isn’t known until the story concludes. The strongest characters, of course, are Win and Myron, each of whom evolves a bit by the time the story ends. Mickey Bolitar, Myron’s nephew (and the central character in a young adult series), plays a supporting role, along with his friends Ema and Spoon. Win’s cross-dressing buddy Zorra adds a note of comic relief to the story when he isn’t causing mayhem.

The plot needs that comic relief because it is quite intense. Coben builds suspense until he delivers a startling conclusion that resolves the mystery. The climax is emotionally satisfying.

Unlike most modern thrillers, Coben managed to tell a compelling story without overreaching, without relying on implausible coincidence, and without following a formula. I’m glad to see that Coben got his groove back in Home.

I wish there was a love button. This has to be one of my top reads of 2016. I couldn't get through it fast enough yet I didn't want it to end. The story itself was good but I think I am more in love with the characters. This is the newest Myron Bolitar novel. If you are new to Myron then I highly suggest you start with book one to understand who he is and how he develops. I think my favorite thing about the book is the dysfunctional group of characters that form Myron's life. They are misfits.. they are broken in their own ways.. yet they are family. I would want them in my family! Myron, Esperanza, Fat Cyndi and Win make up one crazy group but they love each other and will do anything for each other. The "bromance" between Win and Myron is endearing for lack of a better word!

The story is about a 10 year old kidnapping involving Win's cousin's son. Win gets a new lead and heads to London to see if he can find the missing boy. He gets himself in a bit of situation and calls his best friend Myron to fly over and lend his assistance. Of course the story takes on twists and turns and Myron and Win rekindle their 'bromance." The banter between them will bring a smile to your face if not a full laugh. The writer did a great job bringing in Esperanza and Big Cyndi to help with the search and the ending definitely caught me off guard.

My only complaint, which isn't really a complaint but maybe a suggestion, is that the writer could have done a little more back story on the beginning of Win and Myron's relationship. There have been so many stories since then so I forgot how they met and what made them best friends. I think he could have spent a few pages reminding the reader of how the "bromance" began since their friendship is the core of every one of these novels. All in all a really great read and if you like Myron, you will love this book!

After being very disappointed in Coben's last stand-alone book, Fool No One, I was sure -- being a big fan of his Myron Bolitar series -- that I wouldn't be disappointed in Home, the eleventh book in this series. In Home, Coben returns to his roots, reuniting his series characters Myron Bolitar and his best friend, Win, along with the rest of the cast that populated his early books. In addition, Coben has his teenage nephew, Mickey and some of his friends (from his Young Adult series) play a key role in Home.

I won't spend time summarizing the plot of Home, as this can be read about in the Amazon Book Description above. I'll just say that, having just finished this book, I have some mixed feelings about it.

On the positive side, in typical Coben fashion, Home is written in a fast-paced style that makes it a very quick read. It has a plot that grabs your interest from page one and maintains reader interest to the last page. It brings fans of this series up-to-date in the lives of the characters they have grown fond of over the years. And, it is filled with an above average share of plot twists and turns right up until the very end of the story.

However, for me, these positives were, for the most part, somewhat offset by three negatives factors. The two biggest negatives for me are that: (1) a lot of the action and plot twists require a suspension of disbelief that at times went beyond my willingness to do so, and (2) that the motivation for the actions -- and the specific actions themselves -- taken by a few of the key characters were so implausible that they served to weaken the book's credibility. A third, but lesser, negative is that the role Coben has Myron's sixteen year old nephew and friends play in this book didn't "ring true" for me.
