Harlan Coben’s Don’t Let Go was an exciting, thoughtful read. I read almost the entire book in one evening. I couldn’t wait to see how it ended. In the end, I was surprised.
As always, I won’t give away important pieces of plot.
The main character in Don’t Let Go is Napoleon (Nap) Dumas. Nap is a cop in a small New Jersey town. His twin brother, Lio, and Lio’s girlfriend, Dian, were killed 15 years earlier. Two days after their deaths, Nap’s girlfriend, Maura, vanished.
The story behind the deaths of Lio and Dian was that they were killed by a train. Nap never quite lost the idea that a now vacant government facility holds keys to what really happened. When Maura’s fingerprints show up at the scene of a cop killing, Nap is dragged into an investigation he isn’t sure he wants to be part of but that he can’t let go.
If you like suspense, good characters whose lives and actions make you think, and you enjoy detective stories, you will like Don’t Let Go.
