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.
