Books For The Road - Caught

Harlan Coben never disappoints. This novel however was a departure from the Myron Bolitar novels of his that I normally read--or in this case listen to. Caught was an audio book on CD read by Carrington MacDuffie.

Back cover: Wendy, an ambitious reporter, has undertaken a new and exciting assignment: tracking down alleged child molesters and outing them on live television. However, when the latest exposed molester goes missing and his victim's father claims to have killed him, Wendy discovers that a vigilante group of fathers has set out to kill the people Wendy features on her program.

By the description, you would think that this centered around a vigilante group but actually it went off in a different direction as Wendy discovers that she's been set up with several others and it has more to do with the victims' past association than with the child molesting story.

The plot twists and turns and just when you think you have it figures out, it takes another ninety degree turn in a direction you haven't guessed. At least that's the way it went for me and I'm usually pretty good at figuring out where the story is going. It was a great "listen" and made the hours on the highway pass a little more easily on our trip home from Florida.
