Don't judge a book by it's cover!,
This review is from: Shelter (Mickey Bolitar 1) (Hardcover)
Like many reviewers here I believed I owned another Myron Bolitar book (of which I love) but on reading found that this was not aimed at adults at all but a teenage audience. I had little choice but to pursue it as I taken it on holiday to Italy and had nothing else [having already my Michael Connelly]. While the develop of the characters was fairly well done, the unveiling of the plot was slow and the ending, frankly, quite ridiculous! I wonder whether Coban has indeed written this at all - while there are similarities it feels like a ghost writer? Existing Coban fans are not, I suggest, likely to be satisfied with this simply because we have been such fans of his portfolio to date.
