Publisher's Summary

How far will you go to protect your child? A superb Sunday Times number one best seller from the author of Six Years.

Tia and Mike Baye never imagined they'd become the type of overprotective parents who spy on their kids. But their 16-year-old son Adam has been unusually distant lately, and after the suicide of his classmate Spencer, they can't help but worry. They install a sophisticated spy program on Adam's computer, and within days, they are jolted by a message from an unknown correspondent addressed to their son: 'Just stay quiet and all safe.'

Meanwhile, browsing through an online memorial for Spencer, Betsy Hill is struck by a photo that appears to have been taken on the night of her son's death and he wasn't alone. She thinks it is Adam Baye, standing just outside the camera's range, but when Adam goes missing, it soon becomes clear that something deep and sinister has infected their community....

Have to write this even though I haven't finished yet. I know the book is going to be good as Harlan Cobens always are, but my god this narrator! If it wasn't one of my favourite authors I'd return it. Reads like a child being made to read out in class, stumbling over the words, monotonous tone. I don't understand why he didn't use Stephen....the one that did the Boy in the Woods..I can't remember the last name.
Will review properly when I've finished, hopefully the story is good enough to override the narration once you get into it.

Edit- Now you've got Hester Crimstein telling people she hasn't got a family! Don't even get me started on the voice for her. I'm returning this book as soon as the order has processed. So disappointed.

Narration killed it

I have started and stopped Hold Tight 4 times now and I just cant do it and will buy the book to read, The narration is downright atrocious the guy seems to have issues with every 5th word..
