About this deal

Not having read many crime novels, I cannot comment on Stay Close in relation to Coben's other works, or to other novels in the genre. What I noticed was a well executed start, intriguing plot, and enough tension to keep me up at night reading "one more chapter" well past a reasonable midnight hour.

There has long been a debate among book snobs about plot-driven versus character-driven novels. The former often being code for ‘commercial’ fiction and the latter being code for ‘literary’. College professors and MFA graduates turn up their noses at commercial fiction and preach the higher arts. Patterson, Child, Grafton, Cussler, Roberts, Deaver, et al, just write to entertain. Guess which one is more exciting to read? Guess which types of authors live well? Shakespeare was considered ‘commercial’ in 1599 (he was not revered until the 19th Century when the Victorians ushered in popularity that George Bernard Shaw called ‘Bardolotry’). However, before we dismiss the beauty and reading pleasure of literary, we should note that character depth gives the reader more emotional investment and heightens the tension of a story. We don’t see it as often as we might because it also slows down the pace of a thriller.

I can't bring myself to give only one star to a book I actually finished, but as I said, the plot is the one thing it has going for it and I wanted to know the ending. Harlan Coben, an international bestselling author, has penned a gripping crime thriller, Stay Close that revolves around three characters, one who has hid her past but now it is threatening to wipe out her perfect life, the other laments on his broken heart and the reasons behind it and barely manages to make his ends meet and the last one has become a maniac upon investigating the case of a missing man that happened 17 years ago, and the future looks bleak for these three characters, as the missing person count begins to rise in the same manner, their pasts come undone. Franchise History: Megan appears in the TV series and the book, though she reveals in the book that her birth name is Maygin. Both Megans used the name Cassie while dancing at Vipers.

So if I'm able to work with this cast of characters in front of me that you see, who wouldn't move [on] the story?" For while In the book Coben uses the meeting point as the giant "Lucy the Elephant" sculpture in Atlantic City, in the Netflix series it's The Dream head sculpture based in Sutton Manor woods in St Helen's.A distinctive "meeting point" in the drama will be familiar to many who travel down the M62 between Manchester and Liverpool. Mr C at his good, but not best. Still enjoyable though. There were some funny one liners which I did not note down as this was an audio read. This still is not the best format for me, very easily distracted. I found it was not as exciting as many of his others, the ending waned and I was losing interest. Ray Levine is a photographer. He used to be very successful in that career but for the past seventeen years he’s been haunted by visions of blood, too much blood, and incapable to keep himself together enough to do more than sleazy and cheap assignments.
