Caught by Harlan Coben

Genre: Suspense
Format: EBook

Social Worker Dan Mercer is a friend to troubled teens. He’s there to help them through all the difficult times. Needless to say, the suburban New Jersey community he lives in is shocked to learn that he might be a pedophile and could be responsible for the disappearance of a popular teenage girl.

Reporter Wendy Tynes helps to catch and arrest Dan on her TV show “Caught in the Act”. Due to a technicality, the charges are dropped and Dan is a free man. However, he’s not really free as public opinion has already found him guilty of the crime. His former life no longer exists as he loses his job and standing in the community.

Strange things begin happening and Wendy begins to doubt her own intuition and actions. She fears she may have helped destroy an innocent man and conducts her own investigation. She never expected her own life and her teenage son to be in any danger, but that’s exactly what happens.

This is Harlan Coben as his best. It has been awhile since I’ve read one of his novels but he never fails to disappoint me. He takes the reader on a true rollercoaster ride. Readers never knew which way he’d turn next. There were unexpected twists and turns right up to the very last page. Another great book with characters I really cared about.

I’ve been on a roll lately…another 5 kitties and another for the Socrates Great Book Alert Award.
