Caught by Harlan Coben

Today I finished reading Caught by Harlan Coben.

I skipped the London Olympics opening ceremony to savor this 2011 Edgar Award nominee.

My wife  DVR'd the ceremony and I was able to thoroughly enjoy an excellent read.  After the ceremony, she showed me the highlights.  I really enjoyed the Chariots of Fire segment.  And the cauldron was cool.

I've commented before about being amazed at the twists and turns in a Coben plot. He must outline.  These twisty plots couldn't come from "pantsing".

I can imagine Coben sitting down and outlining a simple suspense plot.  Then, saying to himself  'now how can I hide that'.  It's wonderful in the truest sense.  As in I wonder how he does it so well.
