Don’t Let Go by Harlan Coben
I received an advanced copy of Don’t Let Go from Netgalley and have just published my review. I’d like to thank Netgalley for giving me the advanced copy 🙂
Harlan Coben is rapidly becoming my favourite author. I have 5 or 6 on my ‘to be read’ shelf and a long list of all the others I want to buy.
Don’t Let Go kept me turning the page. I would have finished it much sooner if life and work hadn’t kept getting in the way!
I like the main character, Nap. This is surprising seeing as we first meet him using a baseball bat to break the knee and ankle of a man called Trey.
We soon find out that Nap is a detective who volunteers at a place for women and children who have been in abusive relationships.
Nap dishes out his own justice to some of the abusers instead of using the law to do it. Somehow I’m OK with that.
He is a twin but his brother, Leo, died when they were still in school. He and his girlfriend, Diana. were found dead on the rail tracks. There was speculation as to whether it was a suicide pact or an accident due to too much drink and too many drugs.
Around the same time his brother died, his girlfriend, Maura, disappeared. 15 years later he still has no clue as to why.
Nap starts investigating the deaths when other people in their friendship group at school, suddenly end up dead.
As usual, I didn’t guess any of what happened. I was actually shocked to find out the truth about their deaths and why, 15 years later, members of the Conspiracy Club were being killed.
It was a great book and now I have to try and decide which Harlan Coben book to read next!
The book will be available to buy on 26th September.
