Headline Humor – Volume VIII

Hold Tight

Hold TightImagine that your a well-off suburban father and you find yourself deep in the inner city as you search for your troubled teenager.  Or imagine that you are a mother who recently went back to work as a lawyer only to be pulled away because your son has disappeared.

In Hold Tight you are thrust into worlds of murder, drugs, cyber-spying, infidelity, a chauvinistic cop, a smart cop, cell phones, and of all things an elementary school.  Somehow author Harlan Coben links these together in a riveting novel.  One of the things that I enjoyed is that I could sort of figure out what might happen as the story progressed, even though I was not always right, yet this did not detract from the story.  I was pulled along because of the pace of the story.
