Loved this novel. I didnt find it "sloppy" at all. 5 stars Happy Reading!
Started out as a well-written,compelling thriller. But seems like he go bored partway through. The writing got sloppy and all the loose-ends were tied up like a bad Lifetime movie.
This was an early effort, which showed. Badly contrived ending. his later, non-series, books are better. I do like some of those. I don't like his Myron/Mickey series stuff.
Read "Tell No One" separately from "Gone for Good". They were both exciting and excellent thrillers, and thoroughly enjoyed them. Well worth reading.
I thoroughly enjoy Coben books, and this novel was no exception! Read my full review on this book on my book reviews blog https://elsbookreviews.blogspot.ca/ and leave a comment regarding what you thought about this book! 📚
I actually bought this book since the library doesn't have either "Tell No One" or "Gone For Good". They were both excellent. In particular, "Gone for Good" was complete with non-stop action, together with a spell-binding plot. One of Coben's best yet. Available at Chapters.
the past really comes back to bite in this elegantly brutal story. The shoes keep dropping throughout, each time adding another yarn into this tightly woven tapestry -- every time you think you know where the story is turning ... surprise!
The best first half to a story that I have read in a long time. Too bad I thought the second half S u c k e d
As with all of Coben's books, a thoroughly twisted plot, backed up by some sympathetic, and some thoroughly weird, characters. The story almost doesn't matter: the convolutions make it hard to follow anyway. You still keep turning the pages, though, to find out what happens next, or what happened before that isn't what you thought it was. Reading Coben can leave you exhausted, as with any exercise that gives you a really good workout. (It's just that this one is mental.)
