“Stay Close” is the newest book by Harlan Coben and, like all of his others, it is a must read for mystery buffs. Harlan continues to create books that are full of twists and turns, where the end is never in sight. This one is set in New Jersey and features Atlantic City, but not the upscale casinos usually the only spots frequented by tourists. It finds a woman with a carefully hidden past suddenly thrust in the middle of a murder mystery that began in her “wild” days 17 years before and now threatens her placid family life. None of the events appear to make sense until the cop who has been working the case for almost two decades finally sniffs out a serial case unseen by others. “Stay Close” will indeed stay close to you until it’s finished!
