Rhys and Patrick are just six years old when they are abducted from Rhys's suburban home. The nanny was left alone with them, but she was found tied up in the basement. Now it is ten years later and there may be a break in the case. Rhys's uncle calls his best friend, Myron Bolitar, to help bring the boys home. A trip across the pond and into some dangerous territory and Myron finds one of the boys, Patrick, involved with some dangerous guys. Rhys is nowhere to be found and then things get weird when they get Patrick home. He won't talk to anybody, his parents are refusing to let him talk to anybody, and he seems to be cozy with a young woman on Park Avenue. What are Patrick and his parents hiding? And where is Rhys?
It was great seeing our old friend Myron Bolitar again. There were even some appearances by Myron's nephew, Mickey, known for his own Young Adult series. It feels like it has been a while since Myron made an appearance, but he hasn't lost any of his exceptional talent for solving mysteries. Honestly, I don't remember Win, Rhys's uncle, from earlier novels, but he may not have been around in earlier novels. He and Win seemed to be on opposite ends of the spectrum, but they worked well together. There was good reason for Myron to be suspicious of Patrick and his parents. - CLICK HERE FOR SPOILERS. In the end the truth came out and it was more heartbreaking than I could have imagined.
Bottom line - Harlan Coben is such a talented author. I enjoy everything that he writes. Home is no different and it is great to connect with old friends.
