Harlan's very first young adult project will link in with the storylines in his up-and-coming adult thrillers as Myron Bolitar discovers that his mysterious tearaway younger brother, Brad, has a son - now teenaged. When our series hero's father, Brad, dies in a mysterious accident in South America, Myron is his closest, albeit estranged, relative left and is assigned to be his legal guardian. Will uncle and nephew be able to live with one another?

I so wish this had not been abridged. Why do they do this? I want to hear the story as the author wrote it. :(
That was the only down point for me.
Narration - one of the best on audible that I've heard so far. Brilliant.
Story - great, twists, thought provoking. I love Harlan Coben.
Recommend if you enjoy Coben.

Casey Cox is still on the run after being indicted for murder. The hunt that began with her bloody footprints escalates, and she's running out of places to hide. Her face is all over the news, and her disguises are no longer enough. It's only a matter of time before someone recognizes her. Dylan Roberts, the investigator who once hunted her, is now her only hope. Terrifying attempts on Dylan's life could force Casey out of hiding. The clock is ticking on both their lives, but exposing the real killers is more complicated than they knew. Amassing the evidence to convict their enemies draws Dylan and Casey together, but their relationship has consequences. Will one life have to be sacrificed to protect the other?

I enjoyed this trilogy. My biggest gripe is that it took a long time to get used to a female reading the male sections. Would have been MUCH better had a male read the male sections.
Story was good, got me in. A bit too much romance at times for me, but some people like that.
I'd recommend the three books as an easy listen with suspense.

The Stranger appears out of nowhere, perhaps in a bar or a parking lot or at the grocery store. His identity is unknown. His motives are unclear. His information is undeniable. Then he whispers a few words in your ear and disappears, leaving you picking up the pieces of your shattered world. Adam Price has a lot to lose: a comfortable marriage to a beautiful woman, two wonderful sons, and all the trappings of the American dream - a big house, a good job, a seemingly perfect life. Then he runs into the Stranger.

Set at the heart of political power in Washington, DC, Absolute Power was the novel which launched David Baldacci's career as a worldwide best seller of thrilling fiction. The movie, starring Clint Eastwood, was a major box office success across the world. In a heavily guarded mansion in the Virginian countryside, professional burglar and break-in artist Luther Whitney is trapped behind a one-way mirror. What he witnesses destroys his faith in not only justice but all he holds dear.

Kids, teenagers and adults will love this book! Matt writes with humour and educates the reader with life lessons, people skills, science and politics! Well written, well read (I love hearing authors read their books), well thought out and presented. Loads of layers. I couldn't put it down. I highly recommend this book from an Australian author.
