2.0 out of 5 stars Very poor, too many clichés, 5 Jan. 2011
This review is from: Hold Tight (Paperback)
The first Coben book I've read and a huge disappointment considering all the positive things I'd heard about his work. I found all of the characters totally unbelievable and some of the clichés were so painfully bad it made reading hard work. At points I had to put the book down after page upon page of meaningless drivel along the lines of "She loved her kids and she would have done anything for them [insert bland anecdote about when she was at college] she would die for her kids, she thought" *yawn*.

I also found the serial killer character completely ridiculous. His lack of development as a character was completely woeful. The story would have benefited from removing that thread entirely and saving us all 50 pages of our time.

I would strongly advise against reading this book.
