Summary

Brought to you by Penguin. 

From the number-one best-selling author and creator of the hit Netflix series The Stranger comes a riveting new thriller, starring the new hero Windsor Horne Lockwood III - or Win, as he is known to his (few) friends....

Over 20 years ago, heiress Patricia Lockwood was abducted during a robbery of her family's estate, then locked inside an isolated cabin for months. Patricia escaped, but so did her captors, and the items stolen from her family were never recovered.

Until now. 

On New York's Upper West Side, a recluse is found murdered in his penthouse apartment, alongside two objects of note: a stolen Vermeer painting and a leather suitcase bearing the initials WHL3. For the first time in years, the authorities have a lead not only on Patricia's kidnapping but also on another FBI cold case - with the suitcase and painting both pointing them towards one man.

Windsor Horne Lockwood III - or Win as his few friends call him - doesn't know how his suitcase and his family's stolen painting ended up in this dead man's apartment. But he's interested - especially when the FBI tell him that the man who kidnapped his cousin was also behind an act of domestic terrorism, and that he may still be at large. 

The two cases have baffled the FBI for decades. But Win has three things the FBI does not: a personal connection to the case, a large fortune and his own unique brand of justice....

The misogynistic sociopath's guide to life

Win is one of those HC characters that you either have a soft spot for or you despise. No-one could ever say they like him but, by the end of this, you may be prepared to tolerate another Win driven novel should HC decide the character has more to say. Although he did use up quite a lot of clichés in this one so it may be just a one time deal.

Didn’t enjoy

I don’t know if it’s me but this book did not live up to my expectations i found myself drifting off while listening so I didn’t really enjoy

Not one for me really

Good if you like mysteries involving rich Americans, determined to get to the truth whilst naming in great detail the exact spec. of every car they drive, plane they fly, watch they wear and meal they eat. A decent mystery at the heart of it, but frankly anyone who answered the phone with the greeting "Articulate" would get it slammed down by me !

Don’t waste your time

Couldn’t get through the first nine chapters nothing redeeming about the character. Barely a plot by then

Tedious

Really struggled with this novel. I've read a lot of the authors back catalogue and really like the early MB books, but this one was overly complex and tedious with too many revelations that were not unexpected.

Maybe not his best but great read

I always loved Win in the Myron Bolitar books so I was thrilled to read him as a main character. It was a great introduction novel but the story lacked the suspense of the stand alone novels. Not that I guessed all twists and turns but I didn't feel I "couldn't out it down"... saying that I did binge listen over 3 days. The narrator was Win... brilliant performance Steven Weber. Well worth a read.

Articulate!

I love Harlan Coben books so jumped at the chance of this new title. It offers a suitably complex plot and excellent narration, but I was not really grabbed by it or the characters involved who seemed very 2 dimensional. So overall it was ok, not great.

Awful spinoff of a lame series

Myron Bolitar was a lame, sexist attempt at humour. Win is an almost as annoying spinoff. It's really hard to reconcile this trash with the writer we know Harlan Coben to be. Why does he do this to himself?

Utterly entertaining, masterfully narrated!

This was my first Harlan Coben novel and I've gone out and bought 3 more, his writing is witty, insightful, well paced, thoroughly entertaining and highly recommended for fun, light reading. Steven Weber is a master narrator and I will look for more books that he has brought to life

Master Story Teller coupled with a Master Narrator. What else could you ask for? Great storyline. Loved it.

Absolute garbage

I am so sorry I bought this audible book. It’s badly read has no structure and I hated listening to it. I have so enjoyed all his previous books so was really disappointed with what I received. I tried to exchange it but was informed that I had to phone to do this. As I live in Cape Town South Africa this is not so easy..

Great "Read" / Listen

Peaking curiosity from the very beginning. Interesting lead character. Unpredictable. Leave you wanting the next book with Win as the man of the moment.
