Publisher's Summary

From a #1 New York Times bestselling author comes this thrilling story that shows what happens when a dead man's secrets fall into the hands of vigilante antihero - drawing him down a dangerous road.

Over twenty years ago, the heiress Patricia Lockwood was abducted during a robbery of her family's estate, then locked inside an isolated cabin for months. Patricia escaped, but so did her captors - and the items stolen from her family were never recovered.

Until now. On the Upper West Side, a recluse is found murdered in his penthouse apartment, alongside two objects of note: a stolen Vermeer painting and a leather suitcase bearing the initials WHL3. For the first time in years, the authorities have a lead - not only on Patricia's kidnapping, but also on another FBI cold case - with the suitcase and painting both pointing them toward one man.

Windsor Horne Lockwood III - or Win, as his few friends call him - doesn't know how his suitcase and his family's stolen painting ended up with a dead man. But his interest is piqued, especially when the FBI tells him that the man who kidnapped his cousin was also behind an act of domestic terrorism - and that the conspirators may still be at large. The two cases have baffled the FBI for decades, but Win has three things the FBI doesn't: a personal connection to the case; an ungodly fortune; and his own unique brand of justice.

"Listeners will delight in [Steven] Weber's performance as he unravels this plot, launching new characters into the mix as Windsor takes on both these cases in his own way.

"Coben never, ever lets you down." --Lee Child

"I gobbled [Win] in literally a couple of days.... It's fantastic." --Rachael Ray

Not the same old - same old....different...great!!

Totally got into the story... the wonderful voice reeled me in, and I hated having to stop listening for any reason. The plot was full of conflicts and questions that were all answered.
Loved it!!

Great story!

Win is one of my all time favourite, infuriating, heroic, moral, violent, aloof, insufferable, gallant, noble, dauntless, unsleeping, savage character I've ever come across in all my years of voracious reading. I must now reread the Myron Bolitar series to satiate my need for more of this man.

Dreadful

When someone of average intelligence imagines what a smart character would be like, you get this book. Example: he answers his phone with 'articulate'. Of course he does. And rather than write early on that the character prefers to let the other person talk without responding as they tend to provide more information, you will be treated to "I say nothing" over 100 times.

It’s a WINner!!!!

As a long time fan on Harlan Coben I was overjoyed to see he he came out with this new book. I think I’ve either read or listened to every book he’s written with the exception of his famous Bolitar series (I’m not sure why!). There are many references to Myron Bolitar in this book, yet Coben does an excellent job providing background that I didn’t feel lost. I think I will have to get that series!
The publisher’s summary is quite accurate and gives a great overview of this story so I will not go into details about the book. The only thing I would end up doing is spoiling this for the next reader.
About the protagonist, Win. This is an intriguing character. He is so full of himself and his ease with the old money he grew up with. Yet he’s very likable and in some ways very much a person as opposed to a personality. He’s fleshed out and believable.
The mystery is very good and there are so many outcomes that I was unable to predict the correct one, which totally floored me!
Steven Weber’s narration is flawless.
This book has my HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION.
If you found this review helpful please indicate so.
Thank You.

Win is back!

Win is the captivating and electrifying new novel from award-winning and #1 New York Times best-selling author, Harlan Coben. In this latest thrilling mystery, a beloved character takes centerstage. You guessed it, it’s the rich, self-absorbed, ruthless, fearless and unflappable Win.

A mysterious old man is found murdered in a high-rise apartment… the FBI are interested in this crime… Win is asked to investigate, but off the record. What follows is a fascinating game of who done it set in the rarefied atmosphere of the most powerful and rich families in New York.

Win breaks the fourth wall between himself as a character and the listener many times during this adventure and I think that it was a brilliant idea to tell the story this way. The plot is fascinating, the action is moving swiftly, the writing is fast and the narration is flawless.

Renowned actor, voiceover artist and narrator Steven Weber returns once again to this interconnected world created by the author and, thanks to his skills, manages to immerse the listener into another highly entertaining audio production.
I especially appreciate the fact that he takes the extra time to bring each one of the characters to life with different voices and accents. Steven is one of the best professionals in the audiobook industry and I am really glad that he performs these audiobooks.

Win is simply unputdownable! A new work of fiction, in which Harlan Coben does what he knows best, delivering another amazing mystery for readers and listeners alike. I started listening at nine in the morning, took a few hours off in order to do some work, picked it up and finished late into the night. So, clear your calendar, put your earbuds in, sit down, relax and enjoy.

The Breathy narrator killed it for me

I love Coben, and was excited to get my hands on his latest, but the narrator's habit of taking a deep breath before nearly every other sentence became like nails on a chalkboard by the 3rd chapter. I could not finish it or even make it to Chapter 4.

Narrator fine...

The narration was fine - although i finished this book... i simply wish i hadn’t purchased it. I like Mr Coben’s books... usually. This one... i did not enjoy not the story line, not the characters... not the convoluted twists and turns...

Win is a winner

Everything you expect from a Coben book and definitely a worthy spinoff to the Myron series. This is not a Myron book though, he doesnt even appear though his presence looms large throughout the book. If your considering this book and havent read the Myron books stop and do them first. This book will still be here and they are necessary to understand a lot of the subtext. If you have read them you already know you're going to read this.

How can such a good writer write so bad

I love Coben. I consider The Woods one of the great suspense novels. But Coben could not make his mind which type of his three styles he should use and decided to write in all of them. The result is a zero dimensional Win who spouts teenage philosophy. There is no balance in Win’s character, no development. Coben may have been trying to write satire but if so, it’s so poorly done I couldn’t tell. That said, the plot twists were good although the initial crime too wimpy to support the main story. Basically it’s a book that needed an editor to hit Coben over the head and say, “Good plot but rewrite it without Win”. But when you become too famous, no one can tell you to rewrite.

Big Coben fan but this is a pain

Maybe it’s the extremely rich uppity character or the narrator’s accuracy in portraying extreme born into wealth tone, but this is a hard book to connect with. And why is it needed to have the main characters only hobby be sex? Really bad book. I have 4 hours left but can’t take it anymore.

It's A Win/Win for WIN

Windsor Horne Lockwood, III is handsome, intelligent, very rich, and has a taste for violence. This spin off novel was brilliantly written by one of my favorite authors, Harlan Coben.

I enjoyed every page of this book. Win's attitude toward life, his charm, dry wit and sense of justice made this story entertaining and surprising in its conclusion. This is a MUST READ!!!!!

Steven Weber was excellent in his portrayal of Win. Brilliant narration.

Superb

What a great story! Fast paced and complex characters, make it a book you must pay attention to. I was a couple of hours in and needed to start over because I had missed connections. Thoroughly enjoyable, never the less. Well spent credit!
