    1. Suzanne

      I m aghast I ve forgotten to review a book A Mister Coben book, I might add Loved this as much as any of his others, but not so much the medical theme He loves his all star all American basketball, doesn t he This was an interesting one, a missing protagonist, a beautiful heartbroken wife model business woman at the top of her empire, a cop best friend making sure she s ok without him.Largely set in Sydney, which was a fun addition and at the start of this one HC states his apologies for his nov [...]

      This is only my second novel that I have read by Harlan Coben and it won t be my last I was a little bit apprehensive in reading this one as the author wrote a letter at the beginning of the book warning the reader to put it down or return it if they have not read any of his recent work Well that just piqued my interest and I needed to know what my opinion of it would be I wasn t disappointed it was an enjoyable read that grabbed my attention right away It was a fast paced, quick and easy read [...]

      I listened to the Audio narrated by Scott Brick, who I love In the author s note at the beginning, Harlan Coben pretty much apologizes for this book So I thought, OH NO, but I actually liked this one I like Harlan Coben s bookse only one that didn t fare well in my reviews was the one he actually narrated himselft good This book was definitely dated, but it was published in 1991 after all This book takes hits of that nature in other reviews He had some great twists though and it wasn t slow, so [...]

    4. Bill Garrison

      Coben is easily one of my favorite authors The joy of discovery I felt while reading books like NO SECOND CHANCE and THE INNOCENT is something I hope for every time I read a book by a new author Unfortunately, this early book by Coben is not really worth reading Coben says as much in the intro when he urges readers to put the book away if they ve never read his books before Why Because it is so bad, you probably won t finish it.Knowing how good Coben was, and enjoying his other rereleased early [...]

      I loved this one Thought it was a new release, and didn t realize it was a re release until I read the letter from Harlan Coben at the very beginning of the book.Sara and Michael were a celebrity coupleSara a top reporter for NewsFlash and Michael a top basketball player for the New York Knicks Their good friend, Dr Harvey Riker, was in charge of the clinic which was looking for a miracle cure to AIDS But things were going wronge patients who were showing up as cured, were being murdered, one by [...]

    6. Mark Chisnell

      So, I guess three stars is a little at odds with the title of the review, and it reflects my initial puzzlement with the book Coben says in his intro that it s a very early book, and a bit rough in places so why publish I didn t really finish it, I skipped through the last 20% to check what happened, and that s pretty serious The book s characters aren t terribly real, the plot twist is a little hackneyed, the writing is average and some of the political stuff is self indulgentBut And it s a big [...]

      I beggan reading Harlan Coben with his breakout book Tell No One Wow I found a new author whom I followed with each successive stand alone book he wrote Then one day, very out of character for me, I read Long Lost,the newest book in the Myron Bolitar series I have since began the series from the first book and look forward to each title in the series Recently I came across a Coben book, Miracle Cure, which was written over 20 years ago and had not read While I enjoyed it, it lacked the sarcasm t [...]

      A doctor is working on finding a cure for Aids His patients are getting better but are being killed by a serial killer This book brought up some major problems the world has now and one of them is money and where it should be allocated If you are working on a cancer cure and you lose millions of grant money to Aids research you might question the decisions that are made This is the quote I liked from this book You see focus can be a dangerous thing your view of the world narrows You grow obsesse [...]

      I m on a mission to read all of Harlan s stand alone novels in order and this one is actually worst than his first The novel s voice seems to grate instead of flow smoothly Also I didn t like the plot it honestly reminded me of an episode of Scooby Doo The characters seem like Harlan heard the characters from his first book were way too perfect so he gave these some flaws I like that Harlan gave a comprehensive overview of HIV and AIDS I love learning while being entertained Although it was a li [...]

      When an author is just starting out, rejected manuscripts are expected When the day arrives when an author makes it big, and publishes one bestseller after another, publishers sometimes go back to earlier works that were initially rejected and publish them Sometimes these earlier works are gems, and we are pleased that they can finally reach a mass audience.But sometimes the reason that early works were not published is because they were awful They were the necessary homework required of an auth [...]

    11. Mary

      I can always count on Coben to deliver a story that will grab me and hold on tight until I finish it This book, written in 1991, delivered for me As a liberal reading the book for the first time in 2014, it might be hard to understand the apparent lunacy of the politicians, religious leaders and researchers in the book, but they all seemed real to me Perhaps part of the reason is that I remember when the AIDS epidemic hit I remember the struggle to get it recognized as a disease that could kill [...]

    12. Gary

      A very good novel from a young Harlan Coben Maybe not his best work because he does improve but certainly a great read.

    13. Merry

      Actually a 3.5 Better than a 3 but definitely not a 4 Kind of a typical Harlan Coben novel with twists and turns but alas also a lot of gore, very descriptive gore One thing that really stuck out as disappointing in a fictional story, and especially when written by a pro like Coben, was some of the character development In particular one character is presented as a mean spirited, egocentric slut who hates her family but then unexplainably turns into a sweet, do anything to help, love my family k [...]

    14. Martin Pingree

      Being a Coben fan I was not impressed with this one Characters were interesting and storyline was interesting but somewhere along the way it just flat for me.

    15. Sammie Bennett

      Definitely not one of my favorites of Coben s book but my edition did come with a letter at the beginning explaining that it wasn t one of his favs either Still a huge Harlan Coben fan a must read author for any mystery thriller reader.

    16. Priyam Gopani

      I have started reading all of Harlan Coben booksming to be like the biggest fan ever Because seriously, his books are simply amazingey take me to a totally different worlda world of lies and deceptionWITH JUSTIFICATION Coben s characters never deceive without reason.ey always have an excellent reason for lyingr deceiving.r disappearingd even for murdering Miracle Cure is Coben s second book after Play Dead but it is my 8th or somethingd to be fair, I have read this after books like Tell No One a [...]

      Be aware that this is not a new book, but a re release While the book says A Harlan Classic Now Back in Print , I didn t notice that until after I had purchased the book I focused on the description of the book which mentioned a beloved TV journalist and a basketball star facing a deadly disease and a serial killer which sounded intriguing I didn t realize the disease was AIDS and that the book was originally written in 1991 and was just re released in 2011 Some of the characters opinions and vi [...]

    21. The Cats Mother

      There s an unusual warning at the start of this, from the author, that if this is the first of his novels that you re reading, to put it down and read a later one first It s an honest assessment that it s not that good but if you persist, as I did, because I have already read and enjoyed a handful of his later books, you discover that it s not that bad either It s just a rather cheesy medical thriller, which is now rather dated NBA star Michael and TV reporter Sara are happily married and highly [...]

    22. Nicki

      Harlan Coben is a new author for me Got to admit, I was a bit nervous when I read the disclaimer at the beginning of the book warning the reader to put it down if they have not read his recent work yet This is his second book, which had not been published at the time I decided to ignore it and read the book anyhow The topic of a cure for AIDS sounded interesting to me, and I wanted to read Harlan Coben finally as I had been seeing his books around for a while Need not have worried This was a fa [...]

    23. Karen

      I was so wrong in my guess of who the murderer was, WOW Well played Harlan Coben, well played.At least with Cassandra I went from wanting her dead to glad she got what she deserved She never did see that comingkarma b tch I was right about Michael s situation and what was REALLY happening to him How terrible and evil to make him go through all that f cked up So thrilled there were some happy endings.Even though he opens up with this being his first book, I can see his writing style It was both a [...]

    24. Erin

      I should have followed the instructions of the preface and not read it I love Harlan Coben, he s one of my favorite mystery authors I don t know the story behind this book, other than surmising that he wrote it 20 years ago and they just republished it as a new release why Why would you let them republish something you didn t think was up to par I lost a bit of respect for the author over this one I seem to be in the minority here, so maybe it s just me Generally I enjoy picking up his books and [...]

    25. Penny

      What a waste of my time I love Coben However, if I had bothered to read the disclaimer in the front of the book at my local grocery store, I may not have purchased it This is a new release of his second novel copyrighted in 1991 Here are parts of a review that I ve copied from fantascticfiction and that I wholeheartedly agree with follow His new effort is an uneasy stew of contemporary American types These types and others are stirred into a pretty unbelievable story that ranges from New York Ci [...]
