Myron matures - a good thing
on August 14, 2016
A maturity to Myron and to the story exists in this novel that was hard to find in the prior Myron Bolitar novels. Six years has made a difference in Bolitar's world. Some of the repartee of the character has been toned down and even Win, Myron's best friend, seems more mature. Well, as much as can be expected of Win. I like this new facet to the characters and the story.
As usual, Coben's writing is strong. The story is compelling, drawing the reader into the action and creating a page turning quality of excitement. Although several characters who share the "bad guy" role exist, I must admit, I was fooled into fingering a different character as the murderer. Never did I consider the real murderer or the motive. I loved the initial hook of the story and then the twist which did not reveal until the very end. Nice Surprise! Enjoyed the moment of realization!
