Description

In this #1 New York Times bestselling thriller from Harlan Coben, a dead man's secrets fall into the hands of a vigilante antihero—drawing him down a dangerous road.

Over twenty years ago, the heiress Patricia Lockwood was abducted during a robbery of her family's estate, then locked inside an isolated cabin for months. Patricia escaped, but so did her captors — and the items stolen from her family were never recovered. 

Until now. On the Upper West Side, a recluse is found murdered in his penthouse apartment, alongside two objects of note: a stolen Vermeer painting and a leather suitcase bearing the initials WHL3. For the first time in years, the authorities have a lead — not only on Patricia's kidnapping, but also on another FBI cold case — with the suitcase and painting both pointing them toward one man.

Windsor Horne Lockwood III — or Win, as his few friends call him — doesn't know how his suitcase and his family's stolen painting ended up with a dead man. But his interest is piqued, especially when the FBI tells him that the man who kidnapped his cousin was also behind an act of domestic terrorism — and that the conspirators may still be at large. The two cases have baffled the FBI for decades, but Win has three things the FBI doesn't: a personal connection to the case; an ungodly fortune; and his own unique brand of justice.

    I’ve read a few Of Harlan’s novels and liked them all. Win is my favorite. I love Win as a character and protagonist. This book is funny and Win is witty. Harlan’s books keeps readers guessing with unexpected twists and endings. I’d love to see another Win novel.
  • It’s good.

    As usual, Harlan Corbin gives us a great story. I enjoyed this book being totally about Win and his family. I have read almost all of his books and have enjoyed every one of them.

    Myron B’s alter ego and frequent partner in always saving the damsel in distress finally has his own book! Good, if not better, than those books featuring Myron; Win becomes involved in a gnarly set of mysteries, seemingly unrelated except all involve one member or another of his relatively small family. Well written, interesting plot that keeps the reader guessing and a chance to better know Win who has been a ‘supporting actor’ in the previous stories featuring Myron. Highly recommended.

    I love Harlen Coben. Love his books. They are so easy to read because you can’t wait for the plot and twists to be revealed. This book had a good storyline but Win was different, and he referred to Myron too often. Myron wasn’t in the story! Anyway, still enjoyed it just not my favorite book of his.

    I enjoyed the banter from the lead character. The mystery which at times got convoluted was also a page turner. The plot lives in a world of opulence and wealth and the lifestyle is more expected with the privileges allowed there. I can never look at Saks the same way. I I suspected the conclusion and it didn’t disappoint. Great read.
  • Coben is awesome.
