Harlan Coben is one of the newer writers in the crime drama genre of books. He is a NY Times best selling author. His mysteries are very captivating and will hold most crime drama buffs attention till the end. In his latest novel he strays away from his Myron Bolitar series.
In Caught, he tells the story of of several characters at one time. One is of a young girl, named Haley, who turns up missing but at the center of the story is Wendy Tynes who is a reporter for a television show that catches men in the middle of doing something wrong. Her latest target is Dan. Dan is a well known and liked social worker working with troubled teens. Wendy sets Dan up for the kill and that's exactly what happens to Dan. Wendy feels Dan may have been involved with an underage girl and she thinks he may be tied to the missing girl. However, much to Wendy's surprise is the fact that everyone like Dan and says Wendy is wrong. As time goes on Wendy finds out that Dan's friends all have a similar story of a streak of bad luck. It's up to Wendy to find out what's going on.
I enjoy Harlan Coben's books and was especially happy to see him write a new book about something other than his Myron Bolitar series. I dislike it when a writer gets bogged down in the same character. This is a pretty good story with a surprise ending that the reader will not see coming.
