Harlan Coben Readalikes

Rapid-fire action, complex plots full of surprises and, frequently, an irreverent sense of humor: all these characterize Harlan Coben’s writing.  The focus is on the protagonist’s struggle with an extraordinary situation and the pace is fast, enhanced by less description and more dialogue and action. All of these titles are located in the Adult Fiction section of the Library unless otherwise noted.
