Home (Myron Bolitar Book 11) Kindle Edition
“Coben knows how to play with readers’ expectations, and he’s crafted another suspenseful and twisty tale. Fans and newcomers alike will feel as if good friends have come home.”—Associated Press
“The lasting appeal of this series lies in Coben’s sympathy for ordinary people who do desperate things when they’re swept up in circumstances they can’t control.”—The New York Times Book Review
“Reading Harlan Coben’s spectacular Home feels like running into an old friend you haven’t seen in years...Coben’s latest reminds us not only of his roots but also his mastery of the genre. As structurally flawless as it is stylistically brilliant, Home is everything great storytelling is supposed to be.”—Providence Journal
“Edgar-winner Coben's action-packed 11th thriller featuring sports agent Myron Bolitar (after 2011's Live Wire) blends family drama with a twisty plot...This page-turner is sure to please Coben's many fans.”—Publishers Weekly
“Series fans will be happy to see Myron, Win, Esperanza, and other recurring characters...Given the size of Coben’s audience, this one is sure to be popular. With five years since the last Bolitar novel, expect holds.”—Booklist
“Coben is simply one of the all-time greats—pick up any one of his thrillers and you’ll find a riveting, twisty, surprising story with a big, beating heart at its core.”—Gillian Flynn, bestselling author of Gone Girl
“[A] standout family thriller....Coben moves Home at a brisk pace and while he employs his usual twists, each turn is realistic. The heartfelt Home ranks as one of Coben's best, a standout among his 29 novels.”—Sun Sentinel (Florida)
“Master of ‘the hook.’”—Charlotte Observer
“Harlan Coben once again proves himself a master at creating a page turner that will keep you up reading until the wee hours and keep you guessing right up until the end. While I’ve read many of Coben's books, I was actually new to the Bolitar series when I was sent a copy of Home. Wow, I am totally hooked! Just when you think you have it all figured out, there's another Coben twist, and believe me when I tell you that he saves the most stunning twist for the very end. It left me with my jaw dropping and with the biggest smile ever as I closed the book.”—Joan Lunden

Do not wait for the paperback, HOME is worth every penny.
After reading about half of HOME, I thought I knew the outcome of the storyline since it seemed similar to the real-life case of Frederic Bourdin. Later in the novel, the case of Frederic Bourdin was mentioned which made me even more certain that I had correctly predicted the outcome. Needless to say, I was completely wrong and the ending was completely different than I had predicted. I love novels that have twists and turns that keep me guessing and ultimately surprised at the ending.
HOME is a Myron Bolitar series, but it’s a stand alone novel. The reader does not have to be familiar with the earlier Myron Bolitar series novels. In HOME, Harlan Coben gives a summary of the reoccurring characters and recent events surrounding that character.
If you’re looking for a good and exciting novel to read, I wholehearted recommend HOME.
I loved that when you start reading and you realize that he is giving you Win's voice instead of Myron's. I've been wanting Coben to go into who Win is and why for a long time and he gives me a lot more here. All the usual gang are here and Coben give me more about them too. I loved getting to know more about Big Cindi. Wonderful!!! And after the ending I can't wait for the next book. I've changed my mind. I'm not going to ruin the experience for anyone so no spoilers.
If you're looking for a well done series to binge on start with the first Myron book and buy them all. You'll lose sleep but in the end you'll find new friends and it will be well worth your time. There are some authors who's books I prebuy, staying up late to get the book as soon as it downloads to my Kindle. Harlan Coben is one of those authors.
cliff hanger. He embelished a bit too much on the scenery, cities, homes, landscapes and etc. At times it was like reading a brochure for a
vacation spot or referring to areas that you never want to see or be in. But I love his books, I am 79 years old and most likely my opinion
is not very important but you asked for it., so you have it..... I will be anxiously waiting for his next book.
Overall, I loved this novel.

As for the ridiculous comments about the UK... cant get pizza here?? Was Coben last in London in the 1970s? It certainly appears that way with his out of date views and his bargain basement Bond baddie characters.
The two main characters in the Bolitar series have become two dimensional caricatures of themselves in this outing - with some bizarre political correctness chucked in. If this were a first book by a new writer the might have been some excuse but for such an experienced and lauded writer to have come up with such a poor offering then I can only assume that he was under pressure from his publisher and lacking decent ideas.
Win gets emails, his cousin Rhys and his friend Patrick disappeared at six years old. Win then sees a boy he believes to be Patrick 10 years later, and contacts Myron for help to find the boys. When Myron and win meet again after a year with no contact, Myron nearly cries, so did I.
No spoilers, you will need to read the book to find what happens. The book also features Myron's nephew mickey and his two friends.
The book's ending is really satisfying.
A great book, and one I will definitely re-read.
It is a pleasure to read books by an author in whom you have confidence. I bought this long-awaited new novel knowing that I would not have to worry about the story, the characters, the length, the pace or the style. Over the years, Coben has developed a relaxed delivery that is totally “him”. It is as if you are hearing his voice – wise-cracking and colloquial with lots of asides and opinions. Coupled with this unique style, he manages to weave fascinating plots and proper endings (another thing that you are relieved to be able to rely on).
This book is for anyone who wants to be entertained with characters who are well developed and very varied, and with a story that moves at just the right pace. I do hope this author is already well on the way to his next book.
For those who know the earlier work this is another finely crafted Coben book for anyone new to the author I suppose the content might be surprising in its violence though come to think of it, it is quite tame. Perhaps Myron and Win are aging and mellowing... Nah! If anything Myron's hardened and matured well. I enjoyed it and happily recommend it to all lovers of whichever genre this is, not Crime as such and not really straight Adventure, maybe Revenge Thriller with a dash of Bromance, Romance and Cringeworthy Wordplay. Cool.
