APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Harlan Coben again displays his talent for fashioning tough but likable protagonists in our pick for the season’s best detective novel. Kat Donovan is a jaded cop haunted by the murder of her policeman father. When her friend signs her up for an online dating site, Kat is drawn into a nail-biting and shocking mystery involving a past love. The bestselling author is at the top of his game as he weaves together disparate plot threads in surprising ways.
An unlikely bond develops between NYPD detective Kat Donovan and 19-year-old Brandon Phelps in this page-turning, stomach-churning standalone from bestseller Coben (Six Years). While exploring a dating site called YouAreJustMyType.com, Kat discovers the photo of Jeff Raynes, her ex-fianc , who dumped her 18 years earlier. Brandon's widowed mother, Dana Phelps, has also met someone from that site and is now missing. Several puzzles emerge. What happened to Jeff? What is happening to Dana? What is the real story behind the murder of Kat's cop father, Henry Donovan, years before? Who is Titus Monroe, the man pulling the strings on the dating site? Coben orchestrates his story perfectly as Kat begins to sense the magnitude of horror at work and Titus becomes aware of her investigation. Once again, Coben has brilliantly used a current trend, in this case Internet dating, to create a can't-put-it-down thriller.

Just finished. Could not put down. Have read many great books this year but this is the most over the top could not put down book
Special in every way.
Seems like each new Harlan Coben book is a shadow of earlier work and Missing You is no exception. The storyline is weak and the characters are flat. Just no where near as entertaining as his books of three or four years ago
Could not put it down!
