What do I think about it?
For the first chapters of “Do not move away” you have to be quiet, preferably quiet. It is
important to make the link between the characters and for that you have to be immersed in the book. The first chapters complicated by the characters, but quickly we find the links are made and it is gone Harlan Coben takes us in the investigation with the characters.
The author manages to bamboozle us, he takes us on tracks, we think we have found the culprit, we must let ourselves be lulled by the chapters to see more clearly and it is only in the end that we can make a idea about the real culprit.
A well shot story with twists and turns, hooking characters such as that of Megan who will experience difficult times and will share her past with us. Megan “Cassie” shows us that to practice a profession as it was hers before is not easy, they are objects which are not made respect. But who kind of have guardian angels to protect them.
Are you going to find the real culprit before the story unfolds?
