Back already? Ok.
So this is Win, a terribly wealthy chap who you would never, trust me on this, never want to get on the wrong side of. And while this novel has much of Harlan Coben's stock in trade of twists and turns and the occasional betrayal of everything the reader has been led to believe, it's also a huge insight into the delight (if that's the word) that is Windsor Horne Lockwood III and his family.
The plot? Ok, but I'm not going to tell you much. I don't want to risk spoilers.
So the FBI pick up Win to ask about a murdered man they've found; a man nobody knows but has in his flat...
No, can't tell you that.
But from this apparently simple start, a complex and occasionally shocking sorry grows. It's hard to put down. And I loved it. One or two tiny niggles but forgivable. I hope there are more to come.
Was it a good move? Yes and no.
Yes – because there was something about Win that was fascinating and exciting in those early books. When the ultra-wealthy, super-fit and immaculately-stylish Win was called into play by Bolitar you knew that results were on the way.
No – because Win has serious psychopathic tendencies. That’s OK for a bit-player, but for the main man it felt quite uncomfortable at times. In order to temper the violent psychopath, we were introduced to a slightly softer side of this anti-hero (albeit mixed with the old extreme brutality). Coben tried to make you like Win and understand him – but he is just too much for a whole story.
I read this with a mixture of interest and distaste. Not sure where Coben will go next with this theme.
Yes, it's got a zippy storyline interspersed with violence and "clever" twists, but the central protagonist feels like a fantasy (and intensely dislikeable) character playing in a fantasy (and intensely dislikeable) world.
He reminded me a little of a cleaned up and smug version of Patrick Bateman in American Pyscho, name dropping luxury brands every two seconds whilst dispensing "his own brand of justice"... and the world he purports to live in with dating apps for the super-rich, martial arts training from the best in the world, helicopters waiting to whisk him anywhere he wants.... eeesh. It all just all feels paper-thin and something that an over-excited teenage boy might write if asked to describe his wish list of cool stuff.
Plus, unfortunately, it then makes for lazy plot writing as ultimately when the lead character's money can get him access to anything and information from anywhere, he's super intelligent and his physical skills make him (largely) immortal, then it means you can bridge awkward plot holes with ease. Nor is there ever a scintilla of doubt that Win will win in the end...
Strange one really. Coben has written books with much more grounded and nuanced characters which feed into much stronger stories, but not this one
