    I love Gabriel Allon.He is amazing at the spy and executiongame.I have learned alot about the execution of the Jewish people and just how horrible it was.It really gives a person a new insight obout the Jewish deaths and how the Germans thought so little of a human life and just how greedy the germans were and just concentrated on what they could steal paintings, jewelry and anthing of value, except lives.

    I am so confused. I just finished Book 10, Live Wire. Myron’s brother was supposed to be dead. Now, in the beginning of this new book it says his brother has come back and is taking care of his own son and that Myron has asked him to be his best man. WHAT???? Can someone please help me here? What did I miss?

    • Hi,

      I’ll have to add a note to this listing about that.

      In between Live Wire and Home, Coben wrote the Mickey Bolitar trilogy. It’s 3 books long. This covers his investigation into his fathers death and what exactly happened. Very confusing I know – not sure why Coben did it this way.
