They install a sophisticated spy program on Adam's computer, and within days they are jolted by a message from an unknown correspondent addressed to their son - 'Just stay quiet and all safe. When I learned about this book i was very interested in reading it for myself but I also felt an instant responsibility, even before I'd read it, to share it with my book club friends.

Coben weaves all of these themes into a seamless tale that is fairly engrossing, at least until the last few pages. The story takes an unexpectedly dark and serious turn in the second act, one that I felt unprepared for, and the shift to self-serious is where the story remains. One of the Baye’s neighbor’s, a well-meaning-but-oft-shat-upon dude and his hairy, outcast daughter (befriended only by the Baye’s daughter, Jill, showing how prudently the focal family has imparted the concept of ‘seeing beneath the surface’ as their parental teachings) are used mainly as filler until their deeper involvement is uncovered. But he really shines on the underground scene; spies at work, brothels, and nighttime party cruises.Harlan’s novel TELL NO ONE (NE LE DIS A PERSONNE) was turned into the renowned French film, directed by Guillaume Canet and starring Francois Cluzet. What you need is a question presented to you on page one which should, if all goes well, be answered on page 400. Bram has taken an interesting premise—gay men in the Navy during the great war—and turned it into a tightly written, well-plotted story. However, Marianne's face has been so badly mutilated that it is impossible for anyone to identify her.

I wasn’t swept up in the romance as much as I wanted to be, and the writing isn’t prosaic enough to be memorable, but I did enjoy myself. Hank is from Texas and has the general prejudices white people particularly from Texas have regarding black people. As if this isn’t enough white-knuckle action, there are a few other storylines running through this clunker.

Now, this decade was way before my time, but if you press me, I'll admit the era fascinates me so much that I've not only seen a lot of movies set in the time of WWII, I've also watched a lot that were made in those years. Hold Tight is one of my favorites from among Christopher Bram's books -- and I know I'm going out on a limb when I say this, because he's written some very good books, and readers and critics are very divided about Hold Tight. Prior to reading Hold Tight, were you aware of some of the seamier aspects of life among suburban teenagers that the author describes, such as pharm parties? At varying times throughout the 416 page novel the plot gets put on hold while he delves for a page or two into the life and times of Character X, Y, or Z. Before she can find out more, Adam disappears, taking the truth with him and sending shock waves through the neighborhood.

Where does the parent draw the line in letting their children grow up and yet still protecting them? Ridiculous plot (the "crazed" killer was laughable), and very cardboard characters - the parents trying to decide in a very stagey way whether or not to install spy software on their son's computer and then discovering a strange exchange of instant messages, the bitch lawyer who has never had kids, blah blah blah. And again the previous summer when they rode a roller coaster and Mike told Adam to hold tight (and remembered the first incident).Meanwhile, browsing through an online memorial for her son, Betsy Hill is struck by one photo in particular that appears to have been taken on the night of Spencer's death and that he wasn't alone. In Harlan Coben's latest thriller, Hold Tight, Mike and Tia Baye experience a chilling couple of days because of a decision to put spyware on their son's computer. Concurrently, Spencer’s grief-stricken mother is playing Sherlock Holmes from home between snifters of cooking sherry and has come across some pretty solid evidence establishing that her son wasn’t alone on the night he allegedly committed suicide. The loss of his beloved Juke, a young black lad employed in the bordello, really shakes him up because, until the boy's murder he had no idea that he could love a `coloured' person, so strong were the prejudices of his childhood. In the end I was satisfied with the ending, it wrapped up but in a logical way - not like some books I read that tie everything up extra neatly.

The characters are complex, the setting unusual for time, and the ending completely the credible if sad outcome of the characters.Cassandra is the sister of Joe Lewiston, and had another brother named Curtis, who was murdered in an assumed robbery. There must be a trend now in new novels to expose the horrors of the technological age, and this one is no exception. Question: In regards to her son's suicide, Betsy feels that everyone wanted to blame her and Ron because that way something like this could never happen to them. Discuss: Mike thinks certain females have an unidentifiable attractiveness about them "that made a man a little weak in the knees. She thinks it is Adam Baye standing just outside the camera's range; but when Adam goes missing, it soon becomes clear that something deep and sinister has infected their community.
