Review of Don’t Let Go by Harlan Coben

Harlen Coben’s latest novel did not mesmerize me as his previous books have, probably because there was so much backstory to the real story that I got lost somewhere at the beginning and did not really figure out what was going on until I was about halfway through the book.  Don’t get me wrong; it was a good book and worth reading, but be prepared to get through about 50-75 pages before you are drawn into the intricate plot.  There are a lot of characters to keep track of, too, so that doesn’t help the reading flow.  However, the author does eventually draw you into the story and you really want to finish it so you find out the conclusion.  There are the regular twists that Coben always includes in his books, and there is an intensity of feeling as you get to the satisfying conclusion.  I would give this book a solid 3.5 out of 5 stars and look forward to the next novel from this talented author.
