Book Review-The-Woods


The Woods

by

Harlan Coben

A summer camp turns into a nightmare for the owner and several families after six teenage campers, for varying reasons, decide to visit the woods one night.

 Two of them hear screams and find a body.  Two are never seen again, also presumed dead, and the last is found sometime later…also dead.

 Twenty years later one of the missing (presumed dead) victims turns up in a morgue.  A recent homicide victim.

Twenty years later one of the missing (presumed dead) victims turns up in a morgue.  A recent homicide victim.

Could the other girl be alive also?  Or has the homicide victim been mistakenly identified?  These are questions Detective Paul Copeland must find answers to in order to discover if his sister is still alive or was killed in The Woods some twenty years earlier.

 The Woods, by Harlan Coben, is an enjoyable read of how this case is solved.  There are enough twists to keep readers turning pages and most of the story is plausible…almost.  During my formative years at school there were always ‘summer camps’ to which some of the school’s cohort would go each year.  If this book had been written then, maybe there would have been less participants in those camps.

 For the crime, thriller reader (that’s me) this was an enjoyable book.
