This review is from: Hold Tight (Paperback)
A professional couple uses spyware to spy on their son, Adam, who remains troubled by the recent suicide of his friend. Adam then goes missing and drug-world connections are implied . Another plot thread is provided by the couple's daughter who has a friend who was on the wrong side of an unfortunate remark by a teacher at their school.
This is a typical Coben novel which keeps you turning the pages because Coben is so good at withholding crucial bits of the story and keeping the tension tight. A lot of coincidences keep the story running, however, and I also felt that Coben's usual wit and insights were missing from his writing this time. There are a host of characters in the novel sometimes making it hard to keep up - all of them installed into the story-line, no doubt, to keep readers guessing about what really is going on.
In short, a pretty riveting read but one which didn't display all of the skills we know Coben has.
