Title: Long Lost
Author: Harlan Coben
Publisher: Hachette India
Price: Rs 275
All you expect is a racy read from a thriller. And Long Lost starts exactly the same way. Starting with a mysterious girl, the book gets readers hooked on to it from the very first page.
There is no dearth of twists and turns. However, as the book proceeds, the mystery starts to unfold. For some it may change pace quickly, while others may find too many lame explanations for it.
Coben has written many crime thrillers but this cannot be rated as his best work. The characters are well-rounded with the lead, Myron Bolitar ready to go to any extent to help a long-lost lover, Terese Collins. The relationship he shares with his dear friend, Win, is portrayed well, though.
