Fans of Myron Bolitar (and who isn’t?) will be delighted as award winning and bestselling author, Harlan Coben, releases the twelfth installment of the Myron Bolitar series, Think Twice. In this novel, Myron finds that one of his clients, (and nemesis on the basketball court since they were kids), Greg Downing, who died a few years before, is the prime suspect, due to his DNA being found at the scenes of two murders. Myron follows clues to see if Greg really faked his death, and interacts with his ex-girlfriend, Emily, and his biological son, Jeremy. Of course Myron’s best friend, Win (extremely rich with no conscience) is also involved, as well as old characters from previous books, and they work to get to the bottom of things. One thing that will entertain readers is Myron’s relationship with his parents, and their lifestyle as retirees in Florida.

One of the things that stand out in Coben’s books is the humor in the underlying suspenseful plots. The scenarios are a little unbelievable, but somehow Coben finds a way to make this novel, (as well as his previous ones) totally unputdownable. Actually, this one is almost farcical. Coben’s brilliant storytelling ability coupled with his excellent development of the characters (which makes them like real people and old friends) makes his novels (this one included) amazing reads.

Even though there is humor, there is serious suspense and danger to favorite characters. Readers will be unsure of the dénouement until the very end, and will be glued to the book. Harlan Coben has done it again, and has earned his kudos.
