Don't Let Go

With unmatched suspense and emotional insight, Harlan Coben explores the big secrets and little lies that can destroy a relationship, a family, and even a town in this powerful new thriller.

Suburban New Jersey Detective Napoleon "Nap" Dumas hasn't been the same since senior year of high school, when his twin brother Leo and Leo's girlfriend Diana were found dead on the railroad tracks-and Maura, the girl Nap considered the love of his life, broke up with him and disappeared without explanation. For fifteen years, Nap has been searching, both for Maura and for the real reason behind his brother's death. And now, it looks as though he may finally find what he's been looking for.

When Maura's fingerprints turn up in the rental car of a suspected murderer, Nap embarks on a quest for answers that only leads to more questions-about the woman he loved, about the childhood friends he thought he knew, about the abandoned military base near where he grew up, and mostly about Leo and Diana-whose deaths are darker and far more sinister than Nap ever dared imagine.
Rezension
"Harlan Coben is a folk poet of the suburbs and his well-tuned new mystery, Don't Let Go, shows why. Coben does his usual professional job on the central mystery...but his greater talent lies in his warmhearted descriptions of life in places like Westbridge."-Marilyn Stasio, New York Times Book Review

"Ernest Hemingway could have learned a tip or two from Coben's direct and punchy writing style. And Coben deftly intersperses his action sequences with observations about human behavior."-Steve Forbes, Forbes online

"Harlan Coben is the modern master of the hook-and-twist luring you in on the first page...only to shock you on the last."-Dan Brown

"Simply one of the all-time greats-pick up any one of his thrillers and you'll find a riveting, twisty, surprising story with a big, beating heart at its core."-Gillian Flynn

"Outstanding...Coben keeps Nap and the reader blindly guessing as he peels back layers of deceit reaching back 15 years, revealing nesting dolls of deadly secrets."-Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Harlan Coben's addictive crime novels keep readers on the edge of their seat. Get ready for twists, turns, reversals, and you'd-never-guess-it plot twists. His thrillers are virtuoso mysteries that expose the dark side of familiar settings. Prepare yourself for relatable characters, crackling prose, and shocking endings."-Reader's Digest "The Most Binge-Worthy Authors of All Time"

"[Nap] is both endearing and sometimes quite witty. Coben is the master of these types of characters while exposing the hidden layers of suburbia."-Associated Press

"[A] shattering tour de force of a classic mystery wrapped in the fabric of the kind of...thriller nobody writes better."-Providence Journal

"Harlan Coben is one of the best suspense novelists out there today."-The Huffington Post

"Coben knows how to deliver an exciting thriller expertly. His latest novel is no exception."-Library Journal

"Certain teams (the Yankees), performers (Springsteen), and shows (The Sopranos) exist at such a rarified level of excellence that our expectations become unreasonable...Harlan Coben...belongs in this rarified category."-Newark Star-Ledger

"You won't be able to put it down once you open it....Get this book now."-Bookreporter.com

  • Daisy wore a clingy black dress with a neckline so deep it could tutor philosophy.

    She spotted the mark sitting at the end of the bar, wearing a gray pinstripe suit. Hmm. The guy was old enough to be her dad. That might make it more difficult to make her play, but then again, it might not. You never knew with the old guys. Some of them, especially the recent divorcees, are all too ready to preen and prove they still got it, even if they never had it in the first place.

    Especially if they never had it in the first place.

    As Daisy sauntered across the room, she could feel the eyes of the male patrons crawling down her bare legs like earthworms. When she reached the end of the bar, she made a mild production of lowering herself onto the stool next to him.

    The mark peered into the glass of whiskey in front of him as though he were a gypsy with a crystal ball. She waited for him to turn toward her. He didn't. Daisy studied his profile for a moment. His beard was heavy and gray. His nose was bulbous and putty-like, almost as though it were a Hollywood silicon special effect. His hair was long, straggly, mop-like.

    Second marriage, Daisy figured. Second divorce in all probability.

    Dale Miller-that was the mark's name-picked up his whiskey gently and cradled it in both hands like it was an injured bird.

    "Hi," Daisy said with a much-practiced hair toss.

    Miller's eyes slid toward her. He looked her straight in the eyes. She waited for his gaze to dip down to the neckline-heck, even women did it with this dress-but they stayed on hers.

    "Hello," he replied. Then he turned back to his whiskey.

    Daisy usually let the mark hit on her. That was her go-to technique. She said hi like this, she smiled, the guy asked whether he could buy her a drink. You know the deal. But Miller didn't look in the mood to flirt. He took a deep swallow from his whiskey glass, then another.

    That was good. The heavy drinking. That would make this easier.

    "Is there something I can do for you?" he asked her.

    Burly, Daisy thought. That was the word to describe him. Even in that pinstripe suit, Miller had that burly-biker-Vietnam-vet thing going on, his voice a low rasp. He was the kind of older guy Daisy found sexy, though that was probably her now legendary daddy issues rearing their insecure head. Daisy liked men who made her feel safe.

    It had been too long since she'd known one.

    Time to try another angle, Daisy thought.

    "Do you mind if I just sit here with you?" Daisy leaned a little closer, working the cleavage a bit, and whispered, "There's this guy. . . ."

    "Is he bothering you?"

    Sweet. He didn't say it all macho poseur like so many d-bags she had met along the way. Dale Miller said it calmly, matter-of-factly, chivalrously, even-like a man who wanted to protect her.

    "No, no . . . not really."

    He started looking around the bar. "Which one is he?"

    Daisy put a hand on his arm.

    "It's not a big deal. Really. I just . . . I feel safe here with you, okay?"

    Miller met her eyes again. The bulbous nose didn't go with the face, but you almost didn't notice it with those piercing blue eyes. "Of course," he said, but in a cautious voice. "Can I buy you a drink?"

    That was pretty much all the opening Daisy needed. She was good with conversation, and men-married, single, getting divorced, whatever-never minded opening up to her. It took Dale Miller a little more time than usual-Drink Four, if her count was correct-but eventually he got to the impending divorce to Clara, his, yup, second wife who was eighteen years his junior. ("Should've know, right? I'm such a fool.") A drink later, he told her about the two kids Ryan and Simone, the custody battle, his job in finance.

    She had to open up, too. That was how this worked. Prime the pump. She had a story at the ready for just such occas
