Beschreibung

Ten years after the high-profile kidnapping of two young boys, only one returns home in this gripping #1 New York Times bestselling Myron Bolitar thriller from the bestselling author and creator of the hit Netflix drama The Stranger.

A decade ago, kidnappers grabbed two boys from wealthy families and demanded ransom, then went silent. No trace of the boys ever surfaced. For ten years their families have been left with nothing but painful memories and a quiet desperation for the day that has finally, miraculously arrived: Myron Bolitar and his friend Win believe they have located one of the boys, now a teenager. Where has he been for ten years, and what does he know about the day, more than half a life ago, when he was taken? And most critically: What can he tell Myron and Win about the fate of his missing friend? Drawing on his singular talent, Harlan Coben delivers an explosive and deeply moving thriller about friendship, family, and the meaning of home.

Praise for Home

"Coben knows how to play with readers' expectations, and he's crafted another suspenseful and twisty tale. Fans and newcomers alike will feel as if good friends have come home."-Associated Press

"The lasting appeal of this series lies in Coben's sympathy for ordinary people who do desperate things when they're swept up in circumstances they can't control."-The New York Times Book Review

"Reading Harlan Coben's spectacular Home feels like running into an old friend you haven't seen in years...Coben's latest reminds us not only of his roots but also his mastery of the genre. As structurally flawless as it is stylistically brilliant, Home is everything great storytelling is supposed to be."-Providence Journal

"Edgar-winner Coben's action-packed 11th thriller featuring sports agent Myron Bolitar (after 2011's Live Wire) blends family drama with a twisty plot...This page-turner is sure to please Coben's many fans."-Publishers Weekly

"Series fans will be happy to see Myron, Win, Esperanza, and other recurring characters...Given the size of Coben's audience, this one is sure to be popular. With five years since the last Bolitar novel, expect holds."-Booklist

"Coben is simply one of the all-time greats-pick up any one of his thrillers and you'll find a riveting, twisty, surprising story with a big, beating heart at its core."-Gillian Flynn, bestselling author of Gone Girl

"Master of 'the hook.'"-Charlotte Observer

"Harlan Coben once again proves himself a master at creating a page turner that will keep you up reading until the wee hours and keep you guessing right up until the end. While I've read many of Coben's books, I was actually new to the Bolitar series when I was sent a copy of Home. Wow, I am totally hooked! Just when you think you have it all figured out, there's another Coben twist, and believe me when I tell you that he saves the most stunning twist for the very end. It left me with my jaw dropping and with the biggest smile ever as I closed the book."-Joan Lunden

    Chapter 1
    The boy who has been missing for ten years steps into the light.

    I am not one for hysterics or even feeling much of what might be labeled astonishment. I have seen much in my forty-plus years. I have nearly been killed-and I have killed. I have seen depravity that most would find difficult, if not downright inconceivable, to comprehend-and some would argue that I have administered the same. I have learned over the years to control my emotions and, more important, my reactions during stressful, volatile situations. I may strike quickly and violently, but I do nothing without a certain level of deliberation and purpose.

    These qualities, if you will, have saved me and those who matter to me time and time again.

    Yet I confess that when I first see the boy-well, he is a teenager now, isn't he?-I can feel my pulse race. A thrumming sound echoes in my ears. Without conscious thought, my hands form two fists.

    Ten years-and now fifty yards, no more, separate me from the missing boy.

    Patrick Moore-that is the boy's name-leans against the graffiti-littered concrete support of the underpass. His shoulders are hunched. His eyes dart about before settling on the cracked pavement in front of him. His hair is closely cropped, what we used to call a crew cut. Two other teenage boys also mill about the underpass. One smokes a cigarette with so much gusto I fear the cigarette has offended him. The other wears a studded dog collar and mesh shirt, proclaiming his current profession in the most obvious of uniforms.

    Above, the cars roar past, oblivious to what is below them. We are in King's Cross, most of which has been "rejuvenated" over the past two decades with museums and libraries and the Eurostar and even a plaque for Platform 9¾, where Harry Potter boarded the train for Hogwarts. Much of the so-called undesirable element have fled these dangerous in-person transactions for the relative safety of online commerce-much less need for the risky drive-by sex trade, yet another positive by-product of the Internet-but if you go to the other side of the literal and figurative tracks, away from those shiny new towers, there are still places where the sleaze element survives in a concentrated form.

    That is where I found the missing boy.

    Part of me-the rash part I keep at bay-wants to sprint across the street and grab the boy. He would now be, if this is indeed Patrick and not a look-alike or mistake on my part, sixteen years old. From this distance, that looks about right to me. Ten years ago-you can do the math and calculate how young he'd been-in the über-affluent community of Alpine, Patrick had been on what they insist on calling a "playdate" with my cousin's son Rhys.

    That, of course, is my dilemma.

    If I grab Patrick now, just run across the street and snatch him, what would become of Rhys? I have one of the missing boys in sight, but I had come to rescue both. So that means taking care. No sudden moves. I must be patient. Whatever had happened ten years ago, whatever cruel twist of mankind (I don't believe so much in fate being cruel when the culprit is usually our fellow human beings) had taken this boy from the opulence of his stone mansion to this filthy toilet of an underpass, I worry now that if I make the wrong move, one or both boys might disappear again, this time forever.

    I will have to wait for Rhys. I will wait for Rhys and then I will grab both boys and bring them home.

    Two questions have probably crossed your mind.

    The first: How can I be so confident that once the boys are in sight, I will be able to grab them both? Suppose, you may wonder, the boys have been brainwashed and resist. Suppose their kidnappers or whoever holds the keys to their freedom are many and violent and determined.

    To that I reply: Don't worry about it.

    The second question, which is far more pressing in my mi
