Description

Megan Pierce is a suburban mum living in the fictional suburb of Livingstone, and is hiding a murky past. She has found her soulmate in Dave, and they have three great kids. Ray Levine was once a talented documentary photographer. Losing the woman he loved changed him. Now he is in a dead-end job, playing a paparazzo-for-hire, pandering to rich kid pseudo-celebrities. Michael Broome is a detective still haunted by a cold case from seventeen years ago, when local husband and father, Stewart Green, disappeared without any trace. Green's wife still waits for Stewart to return. Quite a generic tale of lies, deceit and a missing person or two. Megan has fled from a dangerous scenario and we witness the nearly 20 year finale to the unfolding of the sordid tale. The Character: Harry is a lawyer Megan knew in the past. Now, Harry is addicted to drugs, but he wants to help Megan out with her latest round of problems. Speaking to press, including Express.co.uk, Coben said: "I know some people are like 'you're not keeping true to the book' but I love that hybrid of what a British crime show does so well and what I do in novels.

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. Wood, Tom (6 March 2021). "New Harlan Coben Adaptation The Innocent Will Hit Netflix On 30 April". LADBible. Archived from the original on 8 March 2021 . Retrieved 7 March 2021. Loved the character of Ray Levigne, but did not feel much for Megan. Megan's husband Dave was quite bland, and I think the detective character, Broome could have done with some extra flesh (as in oomph). As always though, he's awesome at witty one liners and I love this guy's writing!We have the usual mix of damaged characters, who are never quite what they seem, and an ending that I simply didn’t see coming at all. The Stranger Review: A Binge-Worthy UK Thriller By Louisa Mellor Who killed Simona’s boyfriend Guy? Megan (played by Cush Jumbo) a working mother of three, Ray (Richard Armitage), a once-promising documentary photographer, Broome (James Nesbitt) a detective unable to let go of a missing person’s cold case, and Lorraine (Sarah Parish), an old friend of Megan's. Harlan Coben has long been one of my favourite authors. I may not have read every single one of his books, but I haven’t missed many of them because he writes damn good thrillers. Everyone's a WiseAss" - One of the characters says in this book. There cannot be a better assessment of this book. Every character, including the supporting ones, speaks the same way, dripping sarcasm and corny one-liners. There are no other differentiating traits. Yes, everyone is a wiseass, not just an ass.

awards: the Edgar Award, Shamus Award and Anthony Award. His books include the Myron Bolitar series, as well as other standalone novels, including Play Dead, Miracle Cure. Tell No One, Gone for Good, No Second Chance, Just One Look, The Innocent, The Wods, Hold Tight, and Caught. Harlan Coben's books have been published in more than Toward the end of the finale, Lorraine confesses to killing Carlton, too. Her confession is suspect, though, since his body is not with the rest of her countless victims in the underground bunker. As we soon learn, Lorraine is lying. She didn’t kill Carlton; she wasn’t even connected to his still technically unconfirmed death. Instead, Megan’s husband Dave (Daniel Francis) and daughter Kayleigh Shaw (Bethany Antonia) may have inadvertently killed Carlton. This time, Ray Levine's life is in shambles, and it has been ever since that one day 17 years ago where something horrible happened at that abandoned ore factory. Megan Pierce was at the ore factory that night, but escaped, and now lives in bliss in suburbia with two kids and a doting husband. But, Megan hides a dark past, and that past is calling to her. Detective Broome can't let go of the disappearance of Stewart Green. Every year, on the anniversary of his disappearance, Broome visits his wife. Broome hears that someone recently spotted Stewart Green. What could Ray Levine and Megan Pierce have to do with it.This was my third book by Harlan Coben, and will likely be my last. While he is undeniably a deft plotter, even when dealing with various strings and many characters to tie together, the characters are what really fall flat in my opinion. I am one of those readers who can be won over by compelling characters even if the plot is slightly weak, but decent plot AND weak characters leave no impression on me (except this negative one I am writing now, though the book as a whole is enormously forgettable. In fact, I cannot remember the plot of the other two I read by him either, except that in the end, the person with the gun won. Not particularly elegant...) I love making changes, a book is a book and a TV series is a TV series, they are not the same thing and they shouldn't be. The Performer: Joyner is best known for her work in EastEnders, but she’s also appeared in shows like North & South and Ordinary Lies.
