This is my first Harlan Coben book. I have to admit the title is what drew me in. A boy found living in the woods with no memory of his past who is now an adult and works as an investigator sounded intriguing. Both Hester and Wilde were good characters. 70 year old Hester who is a famous criminal attorney was a hoot. She speaks her mind and is a force to be reckoned with. Wilde still prefers to be in the woods and just does what’s necessary as far as the social and technology aspect of the world. There was a lot of subplots to keep track of in this book. The book synopsis leads you to believe the book is about kidnapped teens, but really it’s more of a political mystery centered around a presidential candidate. It was fast paced with some humorous banter that kept the pages turning. A lot about Wilde’s past and future were left unanswered so I think there’s a strong possibility of a sequel.
