Author Harlan Coben, was born into a New Jersey Jewish family in 1962, where he eventually graduated from Livingston High School with his childhood friend, Chris Christie, who of course became a prominent politician and the Governor of New Jersey. Coben then went on to study political science at Amherst College where he had a fraternity brother, Dan Brown, who also became a well-known author. It was in his senior year at Amherst that he decided that writing might be the course that he wanted to follow in his career path.
Coben became an American author of mysteries and thrillers. His novels revolved around central characters, and involved a reviewing of unsolved or misinterpreted actions such as fatal accidents, and murders with many twists and turns. His most famous character was Myron Bolitar. He has had several books on several best seller lists around the world. He has also received a like number of awards in several different countries. His books of note include: The Stranger, Missing You, Six Years, Stay Close, Live Wire, Caught, Long Lost, Hold Tight, and his latest book that was released on March 22, 2016, Fool Me Once.
After reading the first two books in this series, I bought the entire set for my 17-year-old granddaughter. Why? Two reasons: I want her to be exposed to excellent writing, and I want her to know that Im the coolest grandma EVER.I love Myron Bolitar, but I didnt need the Myron connection to appreciate these Young Adult books. Everything Harlan Coben writes--Bolitar or not--is top-notch, and this series adds the attractions of being family-friendly and a quicker read than Cobens adult fiction.The series element is handled very well in FOUND. Coben gently and creatively fills us in on the what we may have forgotten from the first two books. With some writers, that can make for tedious reading, but Coben slips it in so deftly that we barely notice.When we come to the last page and sigh with satisfaction, we wont find this story any easier to let go of that any other Coben novel. There are moral issues to ponder, and questions about where the characters will go from there. Will there be more books featuring Mickey Bolitar? I hope so. Im not a Young Adult, but this is a real book and worth anyones time.
