After a hiatus of close to four years, Harlan Coben makes a comeback with his best protagonist, Myron Bolitar, the ex-NBA player who is a part-time sports agent and part-time private eye. Bolitar is Coben’s winning stroke and he returns in full form with the latest thriller in the series, Home.

Bolitar is engaged to Terese when he gets a call from the past. Coben wastes no time and delves straight into the story. Ten years ago, when Patrick and Rhys were still children, they were abducted. Patrick has been found in London, the search for Rhys takes Molitar and his sidekick Win across countries. They encounter some colourful characters along the way, the most memorable being Fat Gandhi, an obese video-game expert with experience in child trafficking.

Molitar and Win are not alone in their quest and receive help from friends and family. The title of the book evokes the idea of home not only as a physical space but a feeling of warmth and familiarity. For those who missed Molitar, this book is quick, unexpected and worth the wait.
