Home by Harlan Coben

by Harlan Coben
As soon as I heard about the upcoming release of Home, I started watching for it on NetGalley.  I searched every day for the book to appear on the site which promotes and publicizes upcoming books. To say I was excited to see the book appear is an understatement. Having to wait another week after requesting the title was torture, but now after finishing the book, in two days, it was worth the wait.

Home is the eleventh book in the Myron Bolitar series. I hate to admit I have not read any of the other books in this series, they are now on my TBR list, but it is the truth. In all actuality this book could be a stand alone. Enough background information is shared with the reader so you don't feel like you are in the dark with the character interactions. The promotional trailer for this book builds suspense, but truly does not do the book justice. The only reason it took me two days to finish the book was because I could no longer keep my eyes open. I wanted to know what happened to Patrick and Rhys. I wanted to know how Myron and Win were able to find answers to questions that had been ten years in the making.  I love Mr. Coben's writing. He provides the reader with a wonderful story and enough suspense to keep you on your toes from the start. You won't see the what's coming in the end, and THAT is the best part.

As a side note, I love the shout outs to some of my favorite musicals throughout the book.

You too will be able to read this edge of your seat thriller on Tuesday, September 20th, when it is released. Get ready.
