Nine years after his last critically acclaimed thriller, The Finder , Colin Harrison returns with You Belong to Me . Filled with compelling characters and a loving but biting satire of New York City, You Belong to Me is an exceptional novel, and Colin Harrison is at the top of his game.


Paul Reeves is a successful immigration lawyer, but his passion is collecting old New York City maps, tangible records of the city where he's spent his life. One afternoon he attends an auction with his neighbor Jennifer Mehraz, the beautiful young wife of an Iranian-American financier-lawyer. Suddenly, a handsome man in fatigues appears and whisks Jennifer away.


A long-lost lover from Jennifer's rural Pennsylvania past, the man sets a series of alarming events in motion. Those close to Jennifer are desperate to figure out who he is and how the two are connected--especially her high-powered and possessive husband, whose ultimate goal is to make this embarrassing intrusion into his marriage disappear.


At the same time, one of the world's rarest, most inaccessible maps suddenly goes on sale, but before Paul can finalize a deal, an anonymous buyer snatches it out from under his nose. Maddened and perplexed by the loss, Paul must find out who beat him to it and how to get the map for himself.

I hate having to wait so long for this american master story teller to spin out another story. He does it with great characters both good and evil, a plot line with turns and twists that will force you to reread the book to see how you missed the cleverness, and accurate insights into our culture, morals and lessons. In one this books lessons, its two full pages of what it takes to be a successful saleswoman in New Yorks' cutthroat real estate market. This man loves New York and it clearly shows. Harrison's books are great reads with plenty of detail to keep you flipping the pages to find out whats going to happen next.

It's also too bad that one of his absolutely best books, The Havana Room, is no longer available at our public library. But don't let that worry you until you have gone through what other books of his are available here. Then you can always get a cheap copy at Powells, read it , lend it and demand return because you know your gonna reread it at least another time.

With so much junk out there to read, how nice it is to finally find great writing. And then you'll be waiting just like me for the next book.
