From a #1 New York Times bestselling author comes this thrilling story that shows what happens when a dead man’s secrets fall into the hands of vigilante antihero—drawing him down a dangerous road.
Over twenty years ago, the heiress Patricia Lockwood was abducted during a robbery of her family’s estate, then locked inside an isolated cabin for months. Patricia escaped, but so did her captors — and the items stolen from her family were never recovered.
Until now. On the Upper West Side, a recluse is found murdered in his penthouse apartment, alongside two objects of note: a stolen Vermeer painting and a leather suitcase bearing the initials WHL3. For the first time in years, the authorities have a lead — not only on Patricia’s kidnapping, but also on another FBI cold case — with the suitcase and painting both pointing them toward one man.
Windsor Horne Lockwood III — or Win, as his few friends call him — doesn’t know how his suitcase and his family’s stolen painting ended up with a dead man. But his interest is piqued, especially when the FBI tells him that the man who kidnapped his cousin was also behind an act of domestic terrorism — and that the conspirators may still be at large. The two cases have baffled the FBI for decades, but Win has three things the FBI doesn’t: a personal connection to the case; an ungodly fortune; and his own unique brand of justice.Amazon | Audible | BAM! | Barnes & Noble | IndieBound | Kobo
I loved this book! I have been a fan of Harlan Coben’s writing for a long time. I am always excited when he has a new book hitting store shelves but I was absolutely giddy when I found out that this book was going to happen. Win plays a big pivotal role in Coben’s Myron Bolitar series and has been one of my favorite characters for a very long time. I couldn’t wait to see him take the lead in this book and it was everything that I had hoped it would be. Once I started reading this book, putting it down proved to be impossible.
I received a review copy of this book from Grand Central Publishing.

I've been curious of Harlan Coben's books. I see him everywhere and I haven't had the chance to try any of his books. A mystery novel being unputdownable and well wrapped-up are always such a good sign.
Sounds like a thrilling read. I have a few of his books, I need to start reading.
I have this for audio review so I'll come back and read your review later after I do mine. I love this character. I'm glad to see you rate it so highly but I am not surprised.
