APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
No amount of wealth and privilege can protect a family from bad decisions, destructive dynamics and suffering. Wall Street analyst Simon Greene and his paediatrician wife, Ingrid, seem to have a picture-perfect life, so how has their daughter Paige wound up in utterly desperate circumstances? Harlan Coben takes us to both New York’s most upscale neighbourhoods and its seediest corners to explore how things can go so horribly wrong. Run Away cements Coben’s reputation as a master of the character-driven psychological thriller.
In this bombshell-laden thriller from bestseller Coben (Don't Let Go), Wall Street financial adviser Simon Greene and his pediatrician wife have a perfect life by all outward appearances except that they haven't seen their drug-addicted daughter, Paige, in six months. When by chance Simon spots Paige panhandling in Central Park, he approaches her, but Aaron Corval, her junkie boyfriend, who he believes is holding her against her will, confronts him, and the two get into a fight. Paige flees the scene. When Aaron later turns up dead in an abandoned house in the Bronx, Simon and his daughter become suspects in his murder. Vowing to find Paige at any cost, Simon soon finds his search intertwined with a Chicago PI's case to locate a missing person. Though the sheer amount of jaw-dropping plot twists is impressive, some do come across as a bit contrived. Still, the breakneck pacing and audaciously intricate story line will have readers on the edge of their seats. Seven-city author tour.
