About the Author

Harlan Coben is an acclaimed novelist who holds the unique distinction of being the first author ever to win the Edgar Award, the Shamus Award and the Anthony Award. He is perhaps best known for his flagship series starring sports agent and detective Myron Bolitar. One of his specialties is the theme of normal people being blindsided by sudden tragedy.

 

About this Book

"Stay Close" plunges into the meticulously intertwined past of a suburban housewife, a burnt out photographer and a relentless detective. As they wander through their deceptively mundane lives, they are suddenly confronted with the neglected legacy of past events as the ramifications come roaring into the foreground of the present.

 


Host's Impressions

Harlan Coben immediately comes across as a professional, an effusive, friendly personality who can handle anything and probably has. What was intriguing and in balance to his "the guy" demeanor, however, was Harlan’s discussion of how to keep his professional role possible along with helping to raise what sounds like a very active family. The work itself was a pleasure to read, and the attention to plotting was first-rate, keeping me moving right through the book.
