I love, love, LOVE me some Harlan Coben! His talent for weaving intricate, detail laden tales always leaves me hungry for more. Caught is no different!
Reporter Wendy Tynes is at the center of Coben's newest thriller. Her "Catch a Predator" type of show has "Caught" a predator that swears he is innocent. He is acquitted, yet the stigma of the accusation has destroyed his life. The "predator" is killed and Wendy is the only witness. It is then, despite overwhelming evidence, that she starts to second guess her expose and believes that Dan may not be the predator she exposed him to be. Her doubts lead her to Princeton, a group of college roommates and a treasure hunt gone terribly wrong.
The thing I like most about Coben's books is his way of writing thrillers set in the hear and the now. Detailed descriptions of iPhone aps and the ever growing problem of parents providing alcohol to teens just proves that Harlan Coben is in touch with his readers.
