#1 New York Times bestselling master of suspense Harlan Coben's fast-paced, emotion-packed novel about guilt, grief, and our capacity to forgive
Reporter Wendy Tynes is making a name for herself, bringing down sexual offenders on nationally-televised sting operations. But when social worker Dan Mercer, who is tied to the disappearance of a seventeen-year-old New Jersey girl, walks into her trap, Wendy gets thrown into a story more complicated than she could ever imagine.
In a novel that challenges as much as it thrills, filled with the astonishing tension and unseen suburban machinations that have become Coben's trademark, Caught tells the story of a missing girl, the community stunned by her loss, the predator who may have taken her, and the reporter who suddenly realizes she can't trust her own instincts about this story--or the motives of the people around her.
"The thrill-a-minute action zooms on sharp, slippery twists and turns in a white-knuckle race from start to finish."
"With Caught, Harlan Coben knocked another one out of the park!"
-New York Times bestselling author Lisa Jackson
"Caught is dark-hearted, quintessential Coben, and his character Wendy Tynes is completely driven to make things right. This novel is psychologically twisted, fascinating, and guaranteed to make you both look over your shoulder and sign up with the good guys."
-New York Times bestselling author Luanne Rice
"Quite simply, Harlan Coben is one of my favorite authors. His books have it all: nail-biting suspense, roller-coaster plots, relevant social issues, and pitch-perfect characters. Most important to me, his stories have a lot of heart. He writes about men-and women-you know, people who could be your neighbors, your friends, your family."
-New York Times bestselling author Kristin Hannah
"A Tilt-A-Whirl of a story....Buckle up and prepare for whiplash."
