'Don’t Let Go' was an incredible page turner, which I expected as I love Harlan Coben and devoured this as I have his many others. However I really think this was a cut above the rest (and that's a high bar!) The story was captivating, never a dull moment, and the characters were all well developed as was the plot.
Fifteen years ago, Leo and Diana were struck by a train. Were they playing a sick game that went wrong?; was it bad luck?; or something more sinister? Detective Napoleon, (Nap) Dumas wants to know why his twin brother, Leo, died. The same night, Nap’s girlfriend, Maura disappeared. Especially as now her fingerprints have appeared in another murder scene and the victim is yet another classmate.
This is such a great mystery it kept me swiping into the early hours of the morning and I didn’t figure out all the connections until the very end. Nap is a good character you can’t help liking him and rooting for him to solve the old mystery even if the resolution is much darker than he anticipated. In fact, Coben based this book on true events that happened in his hometown which makes this his most believable and realistic to date.
Coben has delivered intrigue and suspense but also added in a dash of humour which he is known for and romance which makes this a comprehensive read.
'Don’t Let Go' is a stand-alone thriller I would recommend to anyone who likes a good mystery it's actually pretty amazing... I found it impossible to put down. Highly recommended.
