Format: Hardcover
I've read a few novels by this author and I liked most of them. This was another good one -- with a good. complex and nicely convoluted intrigue featuring an apparent suicide cover up involving rebellious teenagers and overwhelmed parents. This novel will entertain you while reminding you of the importance of working on your relationship with your spouse and children! But, the ending is a little cheesy with the villains getting their comeuppance too easily. The end is just too neat. The way the author handles the involvement of the little girls is unbalanced compared to the rest of the book. It's like he didn't want to address the need or type of consequence for their actions. Odd. I give it 3 stars out of five (good).

Format: Hardcover
I'm not sure if it has to anything to do with my love of children or that I'm expecting my first one but Hold Tight just lept into the number one spot on my Harlan Coben favourites list. With parents of all backgrounds left wondering how far you should go to protect your family, Coben's newest characters answer a lot while leaving me questioning so much more.

How far is too far when it comes to your children? Tia and Mike Baye, parents of two, feel they did everything right until their son's friend commits suicide and their own son turns...

For the rest please visit my site :)

By I LOVE BOOKS TOP 1000 REVIEWER on July 2 2010
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Would you spy on your adolescent offspring if you thought she/he was in trouble? If they changed unexpectedly and shut themselves in their bedroom hooked on their PC at any given opportunity? That's what Tia and Mike have to face. Their teenage son Adam has become awfully quiet after the suicide of a friend, which is understandable. However they are convinced that there is more to his isolation and they are really worried. A decision is taken, after much debate. And as with all of Coben's books, the rollercoaster begins its crazy ascent. It doesn't stop, ascents, descents, until the very end and when you get off the imaginary seat your head is spinning! But you'll be glad to have read another brilliant book by Harlan Coben, a master of the mystery genre.
I would recommend this book not just for the entertainment, but also for the issue raised about "spying" on your kids when you think they are in trouble. Right or wrong? Should we respect their privacy and not snoop around? Should we disregard it totally and "go behind their backs"? Excellent questions, which created a lively conversation during our book club, with a variety of answers & mixed feelings. Interesting!

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Good thriller, all the stuff is in place. However, I've recently read Linwood Barclay's Fear the Worst, which copies a lot of the ingredients here, especially the missing child bit. I found Barclay's book better, especially with Barclay's occasional sardonic wit, which Coben doesn't have.

Coben does everything right, but failed to interest me or make me care.
