Caught by Harlan Coben

New York Times bestselling master of suspense Harlan Coben’s fast-paced, emotion-packed novel about guilt, grief, and our capacity to forgive.
Reporter Wendy Tynes is making a name for herself, bringing down sexual offenders on nationally-televised sting operations. But when social worker Dan Mercer, who is tied to the disappearance of a seventeen-year-old New Jersey girl, walks into her trap, Wendy gets thrown into a story more complicated than she could ever imagine.
In a novel that challenges as much as it thrills, filled with the astonishing tension and unseen suburban machinations that have become Coben’s trademark, Caught tells the story of a missing girl, the community stunned by her loss, the predator who may have taken her, and the reporter who suddenly realizes she can’t trust her own instincts about this story–or the motives of the people around her.

The Final Detail (Myron Bolitar, Book 6) by Harlan Coben

In this sixth novel in the award-winning Myron Bolitar series, Harlan Coben delivers a riveting powerhouse thriller—a twisting mystery of betrayal, family secrets, and murder.
Myron Bolitar’s colleague at MB SportsReps, Esperanza, has been arrested for the murder of a client, a fallen baseball star attempting a comeback. Myron is determined to prove Esperanza’s innocence—even if she won’t speak to him on the advice of her lawyer, who warns Myron to keep away from both the case and his client. But Myron is already too close, too involved, and has too much at stake. And the closer Myron gets to the truth, the more the evidence points to the only viable suspect besides Esperanza: Myron himself.

Back Spin (Myron Bolitar) by Harlan Coben

Kidnappers have snatched the teenage son of super-star golfer Linda Coldren and her husband, Jack, an aging pro, at the height of the U.S. Open. To help get the boy back, sports agent Myron Bolitar goes charging after clues and suspects from the Main Line mansions to a downtown cheaters’ motel—and back in time to a U.S. Open twenty-three years ago, when Jack Coldren should have won, but didn’t. Suddenly Myron finds him self surrounded by blue bloods, criminals, and liars. And as one family’s darkest secrets explode into murder, Myron finds out just how rough this game can get.
In novels that crackle with wit and suspense, Edgar Award winner Harlan Coben has created one of the most fascinating and complex heroes in suspense fiction—Myron Bolitar—a hotheaded, tenderhearted sports agent who grows more and more engaging and unpredictable with each page-turning appearance.

The Tunnel Rats by Stephen Leather

Two gruesome murders have occurred, and both victims have an ace of spades impaled on their chests. It is detective Nick Wright who, hunting for a motive, must return to Vietnam to unearth the secrets of the past.
In Leather’s latest American release, British Transport Police Sergeant Nick Wright gets territorial when the mutilated body of an American news photographer turns up in an abandoned railroad tunnel. He’s resentful toward the Metropolitan police for getting involved, and likes it even less when the FBI joins the manhunt, but he hangs tenaciously to the case, despite being saddled with an alcoholic partner and a hatful of personal problems. When another body with identical mutilations is discovered in Bangkok, he begs permission to investigate that murder as well. By the time he discovers the connection between them, Wright is in over his head and too far in to back out. His only choice is to move deeper into danger, courting the vengeance of a spook from his past. Leather has a gift for making pages fly by as bodies pile up, tension builds and clues drop parsimoniously; effective, economical characterizations give the plot just enough depth to captivate readers without hampering the rapid-fire narrative.

Promise Me by Harlan Coben

Determined to keep his friends’ children safe, Myron Bolitar makes two neighborhood girls promise to call him if they are ever in a bind. Several nights later, a call comes in at two o’clock a.m. The next day, a girl is missing, and Myron is the last person who saw her. And now, he must race to find her, before she is gone forever…
After a six-year hiatus, it’s good to herald the return of Myron Bolitar, the former Boston Celtics basketball star who became a sports agent and crime solver in Coben’s sprightly, exciting series. Even better, it’s great fun to hear Coben himself performing this excellent audio version. As a reader, Coben has a quality best summed up by the Yiddish word hamishe (homelike, in its weaker translation). He may not be Laurence Olivier, but he sure knows how to make believers of his listeners. When Bolitar talks about going back to live with his parents in New Jersey, Coben catches the basic boyishness of his aging hero and the impact such a move has on Myron’s love life. Of course, the world has gotten a lot more complicated: Bolitar’s ladyfriend lost her husband on September 11. When he offers to help her teenage daughter, he quickly finds himself involved in some very dangerous adventures. With fading sports stars behaving badly in real life, it’s a great pleasure to see that Bolitar has found ways to survive honorably.
