A decade ago, kidnappers grabbed two boys from wealthy families and demanded ransom, then went silent. No trace of the boys ever surfaced. For 10 years their families have been left with nothing but painful memories and a quiet desperation for the day that has finally, miraculously arrived: Myron Bolitar and his friend Win believe they have located one of the boys, now a teenager. Where has he been for 10 years, and what does he know about the day, more than half a life ago, when he was taken? And most critically: What can he tell Myron and Win about the fate of his missing friend? Drawing on his singular talent, Harlan Coben delivers an explosive and deeply moving thriller about friendship, family, and the meaning of home.

Win comes home. So does Harlan Coben.
I enjoyed the first 6-7 books in this series, but the last few got too dark and depressing. Then Coben wrote out Winsor Horne Lockwood III. Now, I don't know why an effete-looking but brutally accomplished assassin, a semisociopath who also has access to his family's billions, should be the most engrossing character in the book. But he's the perfect foil to brooding do-gooder (but also brutally accomplished and anything but effete) Myron Bolitar, and without him the stories don't work as well.
Now Win is back "Home" and the series is back on track. Win even narrates part of this one. It's a great mystery that hangs together right through the ending. Coben's standalones often get so convoluted as to be unbelievable (and sometimes un-followable), but this story's secrets and twists all work. I really liked Steven Weber's narration; different from Marosz, who did the early books, but very easy to listen to.
"Home" is not exactly a happy book--books dealing with kidnapping, the sex trade, and other nasty things can't be. But ultimately it is an engrossing, occasionally thrilling ride. The mystery is tied up within the book, but an epilogue opens a door to new avenues for Myron and Win (and the younger set, Mickey, Ema, and Spoon). I hope Coben, an accomplished novelist, chooses to explore them. And keep Win in the picture!
