Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Winner of the Specsavers ITV3 Crime Thriller Bestseller Dagger 2009.

If you are a Coben fan then this stand-alone thriller is just what you’ve been waiting for, it is certainly one of his best. If you are new to this man then get to know him now. He is ace at the hook-you-from-the-start-and-won’t-let-go genre, a man who gives you many a twist right up to the end. You’ve got to read him.

Comparison: John Grisham, Lee Child, Michael Connolly.

If you like Harlan Coben you might also like to read books by John Verdon, C. J. Box and Lee Child.

Synopsis

Hold Tight by Harlan Coben

Tia and Mike Baye never imagined they'd become the type of overprotective parents who spy on their kids. But their sixteen-year-old son Adam has been unusually distant lately, and after the suicide of his classmate Spencer Hill - the latest in a string of issues at school - they can't help but worry. They install a sophisticated spy program on Adam's computer, and within days they are jolted by a message from an unknown correspondent addressed to their son: "Just stay quiet and all safe."

Meanwhile, browsing through an online memorial for Spencer, Betsy Hill is struck by a photo that appears to have been taken on the night of her son's death and he wasn't alone. She thinks it is Adam Baye standing just outside the camera's range, but when Adam goes missing, it soon becomes clear that something deep and sinister has infected their community...

Reviews

'Like all Coben's work, it's slick and skillfully assembled' SUNDAY TIMES

"Suspend your disbelief at the almost mind-boggling coincidences that inform HOLD TIGHT and have a thoroughly gripping time as Tia and Mike Maye find their lives in danger after installing a spy program on their son's computer." Kati Nicholl, DAILY EXPRESS

'One of the most consistently brilliant thriller writers, Coben delivers again with Hold Tight' DAILY MAIL
