Compelling story for the kid in each of us!

Book definitely WI! (worth it)

Did you read my review about Part 1 of this Mickey Bolitar mystery?

As soon as I saw that Part 2 was out and I had a credit, this book was in my library.

Again, I looked for any excuse to be listening–I even wanted to get at that dust way up by the ceiling. “No, I can’t come! I have to clean my house today”–Translate: I have the new Harlan Coben Mickey Bolitar story.

Although Mickey’s motivation strained my belief as the story progressed, I still loved the book, and want more. The reader, Nick Podehl, performed totally believably as a high school student.

I don’t agree with one of the reviewers that said this book is for kids only. These stories are for the kid in each of us. Personally, I never knew a high school where I was 6’4″, a varsity basketball player, and free to do whatever I want with no parental supervision. I never challenged the police or had unconditional support from a family member. But I don’t think anyone would want to read a mystery set in my high school years–I was closer to Christine than Mickey. For 7 hours, I got to be the Big Man on Campus.

So I listened almost without interruption, and again thought the book was too short. I hope there is more Mickey Bolitar coming soon!

- Michele "I am the author of "Inner Fears", a thriller by MFKing. I am a social media manager for Jazz Social Media. Audio books are my main entertainment, and I think the best entertainment offered today."

Should be included as Part 2 of Shelter

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

This is not a stand alone book. It starts like it should be the next chapter in the first book of this Micky Bolitar series. Even then the plot is too infeasible to be engaging. They comprise a very disappointing series.
