Letter From HC

Hey —

Going to make this quick. A longer newsletter will be coming soon:

PROMISE ME, the return of Myron, is out in paperback in the USA as of today (March 27) and it will be out in the UK April 2nd. It is out in hardcover in France as PROMETS MOI. (Parlez vous Francais? Visit Harlan-coben.fr. Merci!)

THE WOODS, the new stand-alone thriller, will be out in the US April 17th (I am scheduled to be on the NBC TODAY SHOW that morning, and on the CBS EARLY SHOW April 18th) and the UK May 16th. I can’t wait to share this book with you. Read the first few pages. That’s all I ask. Here’s the first line: I see my father with that shovel….

THE WOODS tour schedule is now posted. We don’t have UK details yet (sometime in July), but in the USA the stops include NYC, NJ, Washington DC, Los Angeles, San Diego, Houston, Boston, Connecticut, Jackson MI, South Carolina, Minneapolis. I don’t pick the cities or countries. I just go where I’m told.

The French movie NE LE DIS A PERSONNE (TELL NO ONE) was a huge commercial and critical hit winning four Cesar Awards (French Cesar), including best director, actor, music and editing. I don’t know when the subtitled version will be in the USA or on DVD, but it will be in the UK and elsewhere in Europe in June. You can watch the English-subtitled trailer at the link below. I think it’s pretty cool. There are loads of rumors of an American remake but no details yet. No details about any other movie stuff either, but we will pass them on when we hear something.

As always, I am working on another book (no details on that yet) and looking forward to seeing you on the road. To those who showed up in Germany and France, it was a thrill, so thank you.
