Caught, by Harlan Coben (2010)

CaughtCaught by Harlan Coben
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

"Caught" begins with a man being caught on one of those "gotcha" shows that lure pedophiles to their "underaged girl's" homes. Meanwhile, across town, a woman finds her teenaged daughter's room empty.

With "Caught", Harlan Coben tells a story I was able to solve almost instantly. Then I changed my mind. Then again. And again. The final answers are shocking, and they literally come in the last five or ten pages.

This book is a crime novel at peak form. It never bogs down, and there are more surprise twists than on Space Mountain.

Excellent book. (And kudos to Kelly for recommending...okay INSISTING that I read Harlan Coben)

About tom

B.A. in Literature, Minor in Film Theory and Criticism, thus meaning all I’m trained is to write blog posts here. Neptune is my favorite planet–it vents methane into the solar system like my brother does. I think Chicken McNuggets look like Pennsylvania, Illinois, and Indiana. There are times when I’m medicated, which is why I wrote about McNuggets. Buy some today and tell me I’m wrong! Anyway, Beyond that: mammal, Floridian, biped.Good Night, and Good Luck. Besos, tom
