Long Lost By Harlan Coben – Book Review #36

Long Lost is the 9th book in the Myron Bolitar series. Only 2 more to go and I’ll be leaving Harlan Coben books for the rest of the year. I’m planning on reading some Lianne Moriarty, Maeve Binchy and Ransom Riggs for something totally different 🙂

Long Lost

Here’s the blurb from Goodreads:

Myron is summoned to Paris at the behest of an old lover, Terese. She is in unspecified trouble and needs his help. When he gets there, he discovers that her husband has been murdered and she is the main suspect. The interesting thing is that more than one blood-type has been discovered at the scene – and the other blood can only be attributed to her daughter. But she died 10 years before. As Myron and Terese try to find out exactly what’s going on, they uncover more and more questions. Did the daughter really die? Did Terese’s husband have a further child with someone else? But the truth is something no one expected…

My Thoughts

Not one of the best in the series. I particularly disliked the part where Myron is held and tortured. There has been violence in every book but this seemed a step too far; it was uncomfortable reading.
I was glad when it was over, to be honest, which isn’t the best recommendation for a book!

    The blurb sounds great, so shame it didn’t live up to your expectations #readwithme

    I still need to read some of Lianne Moriarty’s books! They’ve been on my TBR list for quite some time. Thank you for sharing with #readwithme

    That sounds a really intriguing story when you read the book blurb. Shame you didn’t enjoy the story.

    I liked the sound of the blurb – I always enjoy a book where the evidence points to someone who died/ disappeared years ago, but based on your review, I’ll be giving this one a miss! I do admire your persistence with sticking with this series.

Don't be shy, come and talk to me! :o)
