Harlan Coben, 'Think Twice'

In-person – Tuesday, May 14th

Join us on Tuesday, May 14 at 7PM as Succeed2gether's Montclair Literary Festival welcomes #1 New York Times bestselling author Harlan Coben on the publication day of his new novel, Think Twice. He will be in conversation with #1 New York Times bestselling author Christina Baker Kline.

Three years ago, sports agent Myron Bolitar gave a eulogy at the funeral of his client, renowned basketball coach Greg Downing. Myron and Greg had history: initially as deeply personal rivals, and later as unexpected business associates. Myron made peace and moved on – until now, when two federal agents walked into his office, demanding to know where Greg Downing is.

According to the agents, Greg is still alive—and has been placed at the scene of a double homicide, making him their main suspect. Shocked, Myron needs answers.

Myron and Win, longtime friends and colleagues, set out to find the truth, but the more they discover about Greg’s whereabouts, the more dangerous their world becomes. Secrets, lies, and a murderous conspiracy that stretches back into the past churn at the heart of Harlan’s blistering new novel.

Tickets to hear Harlan Coben in person cost $35 and include a copy of the book. Books will be available for pick up at the event on Tuesday, May 14th. No early pick-ups from our Festival partner Watchung Booksellers please!

This event will be held in The Sanctuary of the First Congregational Church of Montclair, 40 South Fullerton Ave, Montclair, 07042. If you require any special accommodations to attend, please email [email protected] before the event.
