Caught (Harlan Coben)

Naomi and I have seen several television adaptations of Harlan Coben books, but this is the first time I’ve read one of his books.

I found Caught very enjoyable, at times hard to put down, and overall an enjoyable read. He creates some good characters, draws you in with the narrative, and surprises with twists along the way.

A ‘laugh out loud’ moment came early in the book when he was describing a celebrity defence lawyer: He crossed the room in a way that might be modestly described as ‘theatrical,’ but it was more like something Liberace might have done if Liberace had the courage to be really flamboyant.

I’ll probably read more of his books in the future, although I prefer the more descriptive prose and deeper thought of a crime writer such as P. D. James.
