Showing Rating details. Sort order. It was hard not to get "caught" up in this novel excuse my corny pun. If you haven't read a Coben novel you're missing out. This guy can write books like no one's business. He is to mystery writing as Reba is to country music.
My life goal is to read all his books! This book was another one of his that had twists and turns and at the very end knocks you back and does a one eighty and I FREAKING It was hard not to get "caught" up in this novel excuse my corny pun. In the beginning of this Dan Mercer goes to a house with a red door His life spirals out of control as does everyone else's that is somewhat associated with him.
Wendy Tynes, a high-profile reporter is who was behind that door From there, Harlan Coben takes you down a yellow brick road that even Dorothy would be confused on. Everything from scandals to murder, to a missing teenager that seems to have nothing to do with the plot, enters the story and it will keep you on the edge of your seat until the very last page.
Harlan's books make me want to sit down and read them and try as I might I can never figure out his ending, he ALWAYS throws me a curve ball, but that is why I love him! Highly recommend! I will probably always recommend a Coben! View all 33 comments. There were two parts to this book. Mind you, I have been anxiously waiting for Coben to come out with a new book. I absolutely love him and think he might be my favorite author of all time. I always get wrapped up and into the story and literally finish his book within a day or less, and that was the case with this one.
Like I said there were two parts to this book.
It kind of threw me because I'm not used to that style of writing from him. There was the dark anticipation and then it spun you for There were two parts to this book. There was the dark anticipation and then it spun you for a whirlwind. I do not want to give away any details from the book, but this was just a little too far-fetched for me. Pedophiles, kidnapping, facebook, one annoying "reporter".
I don't know. The only thing I truly liked about this book was the fact that Win made an appearance. I have a secret love crush on him. He's from the Myron Bolitar series. For me, this book didn't do Coben justice. It was not what I thought it was going to be, then again his twists and turns never are. But this was just TOO far-fetched this time.
One of the best quotes from the book that made me literally laugh out loud and say "so true! Is it a man crying out in pain? A woman's scream of terror? A gunshot? A baby crying? And the professor shakes his head and says, 'No, the scariest noise is, you're all alone in your dark empty house, you KNOW you're all alone, you know that there is NO chance anyone else is home or within MILES - and then, suddenly, from upstairs, you hear the toliet flush.

Ultimately this book was quite satisfying in terms of the ending, but in getting there I felt it was just too slow. In a way, it felt like it kept going and going.. In saying that though, I did like the epilogue, that was satisfaction for me.
Whilst this is not my favourite of this author, I still very much look for I think if I'd read a paper copy I'd have rated more highly. Whilst this is not my favourite of this author, I still very much look forward to all the books I've yet to read by one of my top authors, probably the paper version! The voices from female to male were just eeew! View all 14 comments.
When you read this one you will need to take notes, create a flow chart, etc. Not only did keep thinking that I had guessed where the story was going, Coben had me convinced I was right and the BAM! This happened about 10 times. Only 4 stars because it didn't blow me away, but it was very good. Also, the mid-life crisis men's club was pretty funny. And, bonus appearance by Win from the Bolitar series.

I finished this book yesterday and as I read the last few lines I couldn't help remarking to myself that this had to be Coben's best one yet. The pacing was break neck, the characters though all different and some as dysfunctional as a human can get - were believable, some even sympathetic, and some NOT, which is as it should be. Our heroine is an investigative news reporter and a single mom who gets embroiled in job related issues not good ones and a murder mystery involving a major college, I finished this book yesterday and as I read the last few lines I couldn't help remarking to myself that this had to be Coben's best one yet.
Our heroine is an investigative news reporter and a single mom who gets embroiled in job related issues not good ones and a murder mystery involving a major college, it's alumni, leaders in the community, the feds and local cops, the internet good social media and techie detail here too , and predators of young girls. As a "plot' this one has it all. Sub-plots to die for, story arcs only a major leaguer like Coben could pull off, just enough narration and description to keep you on the edge of your seat and guessing WHO.
I read a lot of mysteries and I gotta' tell ya', Harlan had me wondering until the end. You think you have it figured out and he throws you a mile-an-hour curve ball, bang you're back to zero with no choice but to read on.
Only someone with this authors skills could make the suburbs the deepest darkest jungle of the human soul, rip it from the headlines and kick your ass with it. You'll question your own values in areas of your mind, heart and spirit and like the characters in this killer thriller you WILL make choices, choices to live by that stay with you like this book will.
Whatever genre you like to read or write in, I can't recommend this book enough. At pages it reads as quick as a short story but you'll be glad it's not. Harlan Coben is at the top of his game with this one fiction fans. I very much look forward to his next release. He's on Twitter too: This story, so far, and I'm just a dozen or so pages in, has the pacing and intrigue hints I love about Coben's work.
I've read several of his books over the last few years and I'm sure this one will be a great ride. More soon as I dive into this story of a girl who disappears, the reasons WHY and the dirty little secrets revealed in a town, that tell us a bit about ourselves, and some among us, that we may not want to face.
But we will. Jul 07, Edward Lorn rated it liked it Recommends it for: Thriller fans who don't want to think too hard. I usually cannot stand books with characters who're idiots or plots that rely on those characters being idiots, but this one wasn't so bad.
In fact, I had a damn good time. I've met single-cell organisms with more going on upstairs than reporter and all around doofus Wendy, but Harlan Coben made her extremely easy to read about. There's no way she could've put any of the ending together by herself, but the journey was twisty enough that it kept my attention.
Oh, and I know Coben has a long-runni I usually cannot stand books with characters who're idiots or plots that rely on those characters being idiots, but this one wasn't so bad. Oh, and I know Coben has a long-running series, but it was refreshing to read a thriller that wasn't part of a fucking series. I made several updates while reading this book. I said I knew who Chynna was. I was wrong. I said I knew everything about Dan Mercer. I was, again, very wrong. In fact, the only thing I was right about what the level of stupidity of the characters.
The plot was convoluted, but not in a bad way. I had to suspend my disbelief once or twice more on that in the Spoiler Discussion , but what story doesn't call for a bit of suspension? In summation: No reason you won't enjoy reading this one. If nothing else, it's a fine way to blow a dozen hours, that is, if you're slow reader like me. Someone like Shelbs or Kells would likely read this in an hour or so. Final Judgment: Stupid is as stupid does, but, here, stupid is sure fun to watch.
Spoiler Discussion: Wherein I spoil Caught , by Harlan Coben. She went through all that trouble to bury the body way out in the middle of nowhere, but she held onto a cell phone, which she later used to frame her ex-husband. Mind you, she had no idea she would ever need the cell phone.
It was just a great coincidence that the need for it arose Fuck off. Wendy's bumbling ass couldn't figure that out? Come on. This lady was oblivious throughout the entire book, and I'm supposed to believe she figured everything out in the end? Not buying it. All that white rapper nonsense was awkward. I know Harlan Coben meant for it to be awkward, but there's no way this Ten-A-Fly guy had any fans with those lyrics. Thanks for joining me. Aug 07, Deanna rated it really liked it. I read this book while on holiday last year and really enjoyed it.
Quite a few stories intertwining but focusing primarily on a missing girl and a TV program that carries out live child predator stings.
Seemingly normal people hiding some very dark secrets. I have seen a few of the Dateline - To Catch a Predator episodes so I found that story-line quite interesting. There were times I wondered if perhaps the show had read the situation wrong however unlikely.
A person who may in fact be innoce I read this book while on holiday last year and really enjoyed it. A person who may in fact be innocent can have their lives irrevocably damaged just by the accusation. I enjoyed the multiple story-lines and many characters.
Full of twists, lies, and shocking revelations. Though not always realistic still entertaining. With all of the different events going on I definitely had to pay close attention but for the most part I could keep up.
Harlan Coben has a way of pulling you in and not letting go until the last page. View all 8 comments. Jun 14, Debra rated it really liked it. Apr 07, Barbara rated it liked it Shelves: Dan Mercer, a divorced Princeton graduate who coaches troubled kids, is ensnared by Wendy's machinations and accused of targeting a young girl. However, the evidence is compromised and a judge lets Mercer off. This infuriates Ed Grayson - whose son was abused - and he shoots and kills Mercer right in 3.
This infuriates Ed Grayson - whose son was abused - and he shoots and kills Mercer right in front of Wendy. However Grayson is a former U. Marshall - and a very clever guy - who gets rid of the body, obfuscates the evidence, and hires top-notch criminal defense attorney Hester Crimstein.
Thus, it looks like Grayson can't even be brought to trial. And even if he could be, the jury would more likely congratulate him than convict him. Meanwhile, a year-old high school girl named Haley McWaid has been missing for three months There's a problem though.
Wendy's been re-examining the evidence that Mercer was a pedophile and - in retrospect - it looks inconclusive. Hence, Wendy fears she may have 'outed' an innocent man Moreover, Wendy's not positive Mercer was involved in Haley's disappearance either. Wendy's guilty conscience leads her to delve into Mercer's life, going all the way back to his years at Princeton. And lo and behold, Wendy discovers that something bad happened at the Ivy League University a couple of decades back As Wendy's trying to uncover the truth she interviews Mercer's family and friends, some of whom have lost lucrative jobs because of the economy.
One of Mercer's unemployed buddies - who's fashioned himself into a rapper called Tenafly - provides some comic relief from the darker parts of the story. Two themes in the book are revenge and forgiveness.
Terrible wrongs have been done to some characters, and the issue of whether to forgive or not arises several times. To me the forgiveness motif didn't meld smoothly into the story and felt awkward. All in all I liked the book pretty well, and it was fun to see Hester Crimstein and Win - who are recurring characters in Coben's books.
I think most mystery fans would enjoy 'Caught' and recommend the book to them. You can follow my reviews at http: View 2 comments. Mar 06, Jean rated it liked it. Dan Mercer, a dedicated child social worker, is caught in a TV sting operation by Wendy Tynes, a reporter who has made a career of taping and broadcasting supposed pedophiles caught in the act.
Wendy comes off as pretty stereotypical at first, like a female reporter who has no scruples. As the story progresses, however, she seems to find her conscience.
See a Problem?
Dan claims that he was set up, and Wendy wonders if perhaps Dan really was innocent. Dan is an enigma. As the story progresses, it may very well be the reader who is caught. There are folks in this tale who learn some hard lessons. There is also some stuff that is pretty unrealistic. I did get a few laughs at the sarcasm, but the attitude of the lawyers was over the top. Jun 10, miteypen rated it it was ok. Not one of Coben's best. For one thing, a character who speaks in the first person in the prologue immediately fades into the background after I had become intrigued by his story.
I think it would have been stronger if he had been the protagonist, a man trying to get out of his own predicament. Instead, Coben switches to a new character and I couldn't quite get into her. For one thing, the book changes from first person to third. He briefly introduces a character from other books of his, but t Not one of Coben's best.
He briefly introduces a character from other books of his, but that's unsatisfying, too, because he's a rather colorful character and here he's only given a bit part. In this book, he served only as an easy way for the main character to get information that she would have had trouble getting otherwise. That was the main weakness of the book: She just suddenly "knows. Not exactly a waste of time it was a quick read , but I certainly wouldn't recommend it as an introduction to Harlan Coben's work.
Mar 24, Stacey rated it it was amazing. It really does not need to be said that this was an excellent read. One should only look at who the author is and then immediately would know that they are in for a treat.
This book like all of this author's books really packs a punch from the first page until, literally, the very last page. As promised, the author delivers another WTF ending that leaves you with adrenaline pumping and dizzy from excitement. My first impression was that she was another self-centered, career-minded, don't care who I step on as I climb this very wobbly ladder, reporter.
My impression changed swiftly as the plot unravels and my goodness does this plot unravel fast! I highly recommend this book to Those who are new to Harlan Coben, life-long fans, and those who are still left standing in the dark wondering where have all the good authors gone.
Look no further. View 1 comment. This author was recommended by my dentist, so I gave him another shot. The main theme of trial by public opinion was superbly done. I hate to see public postings of arrests since it assumes guilt before trial. In the case of child molestation, it is especially damaging. All it takes is a believable false accusation to completely ruin a person. I was appalled the show To Catch A Predator since it smacks of entrapment that is all too easily spoofed.
I can't recall when I've read a twistier mystery. Excellent foreshadowing this time, too. Wow, what a ride! There were quite a few false notes peppered throughout the story.
No big ones this time, but a number of irritating ones. I kept muttering that she should take notes if her memory was that bad, but 2 friends told me they didn't catch these issues either.
