Review “THE BOY FROM THE WOODS” by Harlan Coben

It was thirty years ago that a boy by the name of Wilde was found living in the woods. He owned no memory of his past, no family, nothing. He was simply living off the land and stealing from homes during the times he needed to in order to eat.

Fast forward three decades and a teenage girl goes missing. Oddly enough, the man who still has no memory of his childhood will be joining up with a longtime Coben character we all love to find out what happened to this girl.

Naomi Pine is her name, yet not even her own father seems to take her “disappearance” seriously. One person who does, however, is the sarcastic, intelligent, seventy-something TV criminal attorney, Hester Crimstein. Because of her grandson, Hester knows about Naomi’s background and the pain she experienced being bullied at school. Hester also has a connection to Wilde, a connection I will not reveal here, that causes her to ask him for his help. He has some truly unique skills that she knows are a necessity to find Naomi alive.

Wilde has absolutely no desire to return to the community he never fit in with, but he also can’t just leave Naomi out there without trying to help. Soon Wilde finds himself back in a world full of greedy, vengeful people with secrets too powerful to mention. But as Hester and Wilde come together to save Naomi, uncovering these secrets become priority one, putting a target on both their backs.

This bestselling, popular author has done it once again. This powerful suspense has a definite beginning, middle and end, but do not be surprised to see this “team” in a series of stories to come. Hester is still a charmer and Wilde already has found a place in this particular reader’s heart. I can’t wait to see them again!
