Win by Harlan Coben

Win by Harlan Coben Book Summary


In this #1 New York Times bestselling thriller from Harlan Coben, a dead man's secrets fall into the hands of a 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.

It’s a ‘Win’ner.. Different, but an enjoyable romp in Win’s world. The plot is a good one and not surprisingly, edge-of-seat through the end.

Win. Enough already about how rich Win is. It is tiresome. I won’t be buying any more in this series.


Great read. If you’ve always wondered what taking a ride with Win would be like… buckle up. You won’t be disappointed.


Needs Myron. Without both Myron and Win, the story was not entertaining. I wasted my money and won’t do it again story involves both.

Win. Top notch read, one of the best ever. Worth your time. RO


Win. Finally he story of Win. What a story


The best. Been a Win fan since he first appeared. Read all of Harlan’s books and liked/loved them all in varying degrees. But Win is now my favorite and I am hoping there will be more.

Win. Perfect!

The Dir 18

Excellent!. I always wanted more Win and thankfully Harlan gave him to us!!

The Bascher

Not His Best. Alas, the great Harlan Coben is off his game. Mix a far too complicated plot with a cornucopia of barely necessary peripheral characters; then add a misogynistic, rude, ultra wealthy and ultra unlikable “hero;” and finally throw in an unsatisfying ending. Disappointed, but I’ll wait for another one from one of my favorite authors and will give this one a Pandemic Pass...


Adiamond. Great,couldn’t put this book down!


Win. I enjoyed the banter from the lead character. The mystery which at times got convoluted was also a page turner. The plot lives in a world of opulence and wealth and the lifestyle is more expected with the privileges allowed there. I can never look at Saks the same way. I I suspected the conclusion and it didn’t disappoint. Great read.


Great read!. Loved the book from Win’s perspective and Harlan Coben’s endings with the twists and multi-storylines never disappoint.


Excellent!!. I’ve always loved Win but this is a new level! Soooo many times I was laughing at his biting sarcasm! It was funny, dramatic, exciting and kept me guessing!! Great book!! My BFF and I read it together and have decided we need to find us our own Win!!! Fingers Crossed!!!!


Win. Win isn’t a main character. He needs Myron.


Win is Back!. Great to see Win reappear. Very intriguing character and well developed. Corbin makes a number of statements about humanism through Win. As much as we might not like them, his grasp of human motivation is quite accurate. Beyond that, it’s a very good and complex story. Very much in line with what we have come to expect from Corbin. Would like to see what comes next for Win.


Excellent book and character. I hope we get more books about Win.. Loved it


UGH!. I very much disliked the main character-“poor little rich boy” comes to mind. I didn’t enjoy the story or like any of the characters. Used to like Harlan Coban;not this time. Possibly not ever again.


WIN. Coben, Aka Bolitar, wrote an entertaining story full of his usual twists and turns at the end, but I did not enjoy it as much as previous books. Maybe if Ema and Jessica turned out to be tag team overweight wrestlers I could have enjoyed it more. The point is it needed more of his ridiculous humor.

Cap't Crunch

Win win for the reader. Myron B’s alter ego and frequent partner in always saving the damsel in distress finally has his own book! Good, if not better, than those books featuring Myron; Win becomes involved in a gnarly set of mysteries, seemingly unrelated except all involve one member or another of his relatively small family. Well written, interesting plot that keeps the reader guessing and a chance to better know Win who has been a ‘supporting actor’ in the previous stories featuring Myron. Highly recommended.


WIN. As usual, Harlan Corbin gives us a great story. I enjoyed this book being totally about Win and his family. I have read almost all of his books and have enjoyed every one of them.

Bu stu

Barely got through it.... Please bring back Myron and Harry—this one was pretty bad


Harlan Coben for the "Win". I don't usually write reviews. This book however, is SO Harlan Coben. To revel in this book (if you've read earlier novels where this character, Win, was not the main character) is to read a masterful creation of what drives that second character to be so easily understood as a main character. I kept waiting for Myron to appear, but that would have lessened the impact of Win - both the character as well as this carefully crafted book. Kudos Mr. Coben. Waiting for the next one. Hope it reunites Win and Myron, so that Win can tell Myron to articulate, but I'll read it nonetheless.


Win. Excellent


WIN. Love the author and have read most of his novels. Win is a loser! Nonsensical, convoluted plot, overloaded with unrealistic scenarios. Disappointing!


Very good. Excellent read. Couldn’t put it down.


Good storyline - meh on parts of the story. I love Harlen Coben. Love his books. They are so easy to read because you can’t wait for the plot and twists to be revealed. This book had a good storyline but Win was different, and he referred to Myron too often. Myron wasn’t in the story! Anyway, still enjoyed it just not my favorite book of his.


Win. Loved the plot. Loads of twists and turns...witty with no chance of putting it down until all was made clear.


Just Meh.. This was my first Harlan Coben book and I’m sad to say, it really disappointed me. I hate Win’s personality and everything about him. He is a completely unlikable guy and I just didn’t care about the story. The characters were dull, without depth, and were not interesting at all. This is a true and honest review. I’m not an overly critical type of person; in fact, there’s a lot I can overlook in a story. But this one was painful to get through.

Word Smith Casey

A page turner!. Really enjoyed this book, lots of twists and turns.


Excellent. I want more Win


Perhaps Coben’s finest to date. Coben’s writing sizzles in his latest thriller, with dialog that reaches a new level of wittiness and sharpness. The title character can be offputting in a way to make you love him even more, a true snob, to be sure, but clever beyond imagination. The plot engages right to the surprise ending. Congratulations Harlan. This one is brilliant.

Andrea galante

Win. I vote Win as a character. He has been a long time favorite. This book did not disappoint either. Same Win whit and attitude.


Very Wordy. Major disappointment- Cobin fills the pages with way too many detailed descriptions.


I needed a good book and this was it. I think he’s a great writer but I don’t always like his characters or his plots. I loved both in this book. A great read.

Tuckaseegee Fly Fishing Guide

Coben is awesome.. Couldn’t have asked for more in a mystery


I need. more Win.


So good, I read it twice.. Good to see the focus on Win for a change, instead of Byron an, as usual, Harlan Coben tells a really good tale.

Gisolt v

Maybe it’s time to retire. This book is the absolute worst. If he didn’t already have a name it would never have been published.


Win. Great story by a great writer. A new trilogy begins!


Great book!. I think this is one of his very best books and I have read them all! It was nice and a little disconcerting to live inside the brain of Win for a while!


Wonderful. I’ve read a few Of Harlan’s novels and liked them all. Win is my favorite. I love Win as a character and protagonist. This book is funny and Win is witty. Harlan’s books keeps readers guessing with unexpected twists and endings. I’d love to see another Win novel.


Fantastic.. So much fun.


Excellent. Mr. Coben has once again written a dazzling page-turner. He weaved a brilliant tale with a cast of terrific characters. The protagonist is an old friend from previous novels, but never seen under such bright light. The author's sustained commitment to excellence is a gift and an inspiration.


WIN is a winner!. Completely engrossing Harlan Cohen at his best!


Win. Loved it!


Win. I’ve always loved the Myron and Win series. I was afraid that Win would not stand up on his own. I was delighted to see that he could


Win. 4/5 stars. Good read. Interesting character. I’d recommend to my friends. Hal R Troy,MI


Terrific read!. I love this whole series! Windsor is a fascinating character, albeit disturbing lol. The cleverness and humor of Coben always makes this series a delight!

Say-Say Jane

Win. Contrary to one review (maybe more) I greatly enjoyed this book. Harlan, if you can keep producing novels like this I’ll keep buying them.
