The Match by Harlan Coben Book Summary

A shocking genetic match exposes a family's darkest secret in this gripping thriller from the creator of the #1 hit Netflix series Stay Close.

After months away, Wilde has returned to the Ramapo Mountains in the wake of a failed bid at domesticity that confirms what he's known all along: He belongs on his own, free from the comforts and constraints of modern life.

Suddenly, a DNA match on an online ancestry database brings Wilde closer to his past than he's ever dreamed, and finally gives Wilde the opening he needs to track down his father. But meeting the man brings up more questions than answers. So Wilde reaches out to his last, most desperate lead, a second cousin who disappears as quickly as he resurfaces, having experienced an epic fall from grace that can only be described as a waking nightmare.

Was his cousin's downfall a long time coming? Or was he the victim of a conspiracy as cunning as it is complex? And how does it all connect to the man once known as The Stranger, a treacherous fugitive with a growing following whose mission and methods have only turned more dangerous with time?

The Match (Harlan Coben) Book Reviews

The MatchInteresting and different type of murder mystery. It is definitely a page turner. The dialogue is very well done. The plot is a bit convoluted but the characters are endearing and realistic. The science is a bit baffling..Score: 4/5

The MatchDecent read. Confusing at times. I’ve read better of Harlan Coben..Score: 3/5

BummedRabbit fan….read all his books and this is by far is worst work ever.Score: 1/5

Find a new editor and kill the bookThe book is very complicated and difficult to follow. I was inclined to end it and start another. At the end, the author tries to tie everything together, but it is hopeless. The editor must be very smart if he can follow the story..Score: 3/5

Great RideThis man just doesn’t know how to write a bad book. I loved the character Wilde before and like him even better now. I actually slowed down reading this book because I so didn’t want it to end. Please write me another one, Harlan Coben!.Score: 5/5

The MatchExcellent read.Score: 5/5

ConfusingNot sure how the match actually came to be….confusing. Kept me entertained but I’d love someone to tell me the links!.Score: 3/5

Terrible!Desperately tried to get through it, but simply couldn’t do it—absolutely terrible. Story is stupid, none of the characters are interesting or relatable. I should have spent the money on a pet rock….Score: 1/5

Did Harlan just get better?Yes, I think he did!.Score: 5/5

The MatchSolid read. A little disjointed to me. Can’t believe Hester said’articulate.’ Wilde seemed to have all the money he needed but was not clear where it came from. Some good twists and turns..Score: 4/5

Great ReadEnjoyed every page. So much so, I finished the book over two days!!.Score: 5/5

Surprise ending…well at least I was surprised. Lots going on and loved all the different characters..Score: 4/5

Beyond five stars!I read a lot for entertainment and rate a lot of fictions four stars, but they always leave me wanting. Harlan Cohen’s “The Match” is far beyond four stars in comparison. It is a gripping, engaging, twisting path of intrigue and emotions. You’ll be glad you read it!.Score: 5/5

The MatchIt’s a good story but rather predictable. May be worth reading..Score: 4/5

DisappointingI have been a fan in the past, predominantly because of the Myron Bolitar series. This plot however was ridiculously convoluted and far fetched. Sorry I wasted time with this one..Score: 2/5

The Match3/5 stars Convoluted plot. Not one of Coben’s better efforts. Hal R.Score: 3/5

Left me unsatisfiedGreat read, as usual for this author, but the concluding math was fuzzy and the familial connections fell apart for me. I finished the story with a “yeah, but precisely how?” All the dots were not connected to my satisfaction..Score: 3/5
