Win is an interesting character when he makes appearances in Myron Bolitar stories but, on his own, he's completely unlikable. Arrogant, self-absorbed, violent, remorseless, annoyingly quippy. The plot is fast-paced and convoluted. Character relationships are not realistic. The dialogue tries to be clever (Win likes to respond "as rain" when other characters offhandedly say, "Am I right?") but often ends up obtuse. For example, after a lengthy conversation solely about the victim who lived in the tower of the building, Win asks the security guard, "Did he ever talk to you?" The security guard responds, "The guy in the tower?" Duh. This kind of pointless dialogue occurs too many times throughout the book. Coben always crafts an interesting story but, with Win, it's hard to care about the outcome. ( )

This is an odd book, one that leaves me continually gravitating between 3 and 5 stars. The title of the book refers to the protagonist, Windsor Horne Lockwood III. Win the deadly super wealthy gent has occupied a supporting character role in the long running Coben series featuring Myron Bolitar. A role I'm not convinced suits him better.

Much of this book feels as if it was written in the 1990s, a more permissive time. The pages are filled with both sex and violence, much of a gratuitous nature. Win himself represents the type of wealth that once was envied but has become loathed by many in today's culture.

The story on the other hand will sweep you up and having you racing to discover the outcome. Give it to Coben, he can construct a tale.

Characters have a habit of appearing for little reason, other rhan to titulate. Those same characters dissappear with little explanation to why they appeared in the first place. Other characters go undeveloiped despite playing pivitol roles.

With out giving away any spoilers, in the end, I think the decision to keep Bolitar absent from the story ultimately sinks the book. Without the balance of Myron, Win is nowhere near as attractive a hero, or even an anti-hero.

Ultimately the reqder if left continually torn between being repulsed by the title character, and wanting to discover the outcome of it all. Not a comfortable place to be.

Hopefully the next book will reunite the duo. ( )

Win Lockwood is the star of this novel, but there is enough Myron-isms sprinkled throughout the novel to satisfy until, hopefully, a new Myron novel is written. One can always hope!!
This novel follows Win as he acts as a vigilante, but then his FBI friend, PT, asks him for help investigating a murder. The murdered man turns out to be a member of the Jane Street Six, and he has a piece of stolen art in his apartment that belongs to Win’s family. Thus begins an unraveling of what happened to the six members of the group, the info on the art heist, and the details of the young women held in the Horror Hut, including Win’s cousin Patricia.
I enjoyed this, and wonder if there will be more novels with Win as the main character. ( )

Dit boek gaat over Win (Windsor Horne Lockwood III) en zijn familie. Zijn familie is schatrijk en hebben overal nuttige contacten zowel in de hoogste kringen als in de wat mindere milieus. Win heeft dure auto's en een paar helikopters tot zijn beschikking. Zijn PA is Kabir die erg goed is in onderzoek doen en dingen structureren. Win zelf heeft allerlei gevechtssporten onder de knie en kan zich overal wel tegen verdedigen. Hij is afstandelijk van aard en kan logisch denken, maar heeft niet veel gevoel of emoties. Hij houdt van niemand, alleen op een platonische manier van zijn vriend Myron Bolitar (die in dit verhaal geen rol heeft). Hij heeft seks om de seks zonder een relatie te hebben. Hij heeft zelfs een app op zijn telefoon waarmee hij een afspraak kan maken met gelijkgestemde vrouwen. En hij is ongelooflijk vasthoudend als hij een spoor gevonden heeft en schuwt geen enkel middel om achter de waarheid te komen.
Harlan Coben heeft een spannend verhaal geschreven geheel in de stijl van hoe Win zou werken en denken. Dat maakt dit een heel ander boek dan alle andere boeken. De sfeer is meer zakelijk en een opsomming van feitelijkheden. Dat maakt het echter wel heel interessant om te lezen.
Als er in een penthouse een vermoorde man, een koffer met de initialen van Win en een Vermeer, die van de familie Lockwood gestolen is, worden gevonden heeft de politie een aanknopingspunt gevonden in de ontvoeringszaak van Patricia Lockwood, een nichtje van Win, 20 jaar daarvoor. Win moet zien uit te vinden wat er precies is gebeurd om zijn onschuld te bewijzen en het andere ontbrekende schilderij (een Picasso) te vinden. Maar niets is wat het lijkt. ( )

I bought this book June 16, 2020, 9 months before it was released, when I first heard of it's release and who the main character was: Windsor Horne Lockwood III. Win. This book is a Harlan Coben super fan's dream! I first got hooked on Coben's Myron Bolitar series and it's been 5 long years since the last installment. We got a brief peak back into his world with Coben's YA series featuring his nephew, Mickey. But I'll be honest, I've griefed this loss. What does Myron Bolitar have to do with Win asks the unindoctrinated? Win is Mryon's uber rich best friend who has some interesting interests leaning toward violence and sex.

This book was, for me, a walk down memory lane. Myron didn't appear but he was mentioned frequently. Win's daughter, Ema, from the YA series does play a role. I could not in good faith recommend this book to anyone who hasn't worked their way through the Myron Bolitar series (you won't be disappointed!). But so much of this book would be missed without that background. You would feel like the new kid hanging out with a group of lifelong friends: not getting half their references.

For those of you who know and love the Bolitar family like I do, by all means, what are you waiting for?? It is an interesting plot line: one of two masterpieces stolen years ago from the Lockwood family is found in the apartment of a recently murdered recluse whose identity is completely unknown to the Lockwood family. Quickly things change as Win starts looking into things hoping to find the missing Picasso as well the way only Win can: with money and serious threats of violence that he does not hesitate to follow through on. Throughout he does keep up his eccentric sexlife, though toned down as he matures. The violence is described and at times graphic. The sex is not. There is before sex and after sex, there is no actual sex.

Did I love this book? Yes, purely from the standpoint of seeing old friends. The story was engaging and interesting. Win is engaging and interesting. But the way that he and Myron would play off of each other with Myron being the good angel and Win being the bad was glaringly missed. Coben tried to bring in Myron's conscience throughout with Win thinking of what Myron would do or say but it just wasn't the same. You just can't break of the band and have it sound the same. ( )
