"Pure entertainment from one of the masters of storytelling, a whole steaming heap of trouble hits when a teenage girl goes missing."
A classically fabulous action-packed story from a master storyteller. When a teenager goes missing a famous criminal attorney and a former solider and security expert find themselves involved in the hunt to find her. This is a standalone novel (or fingers crossed could even be the start to a new series), though you may note it does contain a character from elsewhere. I adore Harlan Coben’s novels, you can throw yourself in and allow the world he creates to consume you. Here a seemingly simple premise spins into one heck of a mind-twisting knock-out selection of sub plots. The storyline builds, opening up pathways you had no idea were in front of you. There are a range of interesting characters on offer, from the wonderful Hester Crimstein (yes she’s back and I seriously want her in my life) to the straightforward yet enigmatic Wilde. Even with all the characters and multiple threads, I can hand on heart say that I didn’t lose my way, or wonder who was who. I just sat and soaked up the atmosphere and believed in the story. The Boy in the Woods is pure entertainment.
