Harlan Coben's 'The Boy From the Woods,' 'Mountains Sing'

“The Boy from the Woods,” by Harlan Coben.

In search of something good to read? USA TODAY’s Barbara VanDenburgh scopes out the shelves for this week’s hottest new book releases.

1. “The Boy from the Woods,” by Harlan Coben (Grand Central, fiction, on sale March 17)

What it’s about: Wilde was found living feral in the woods as a child, having no memories of his past. Thirty years later, a child goes missing, and a criminal attorney reaches out to Wilde to use his unique skills to help find the missing girl.

The buzz: “Coben finds room for three climactic surprises, one of them a honey,” Kirkus Reviews says.

2. “Beheld,” by TaraShea Nesbit (Bloomsbury, fiction, on sale March 17)

What it’s about: The divided, Puritan-controlled colony at Plymouth is rocked by a stranger’s arrival in this gripping retelling of the colony’s first murder.

The buzz: “ ‘Beheld’ disrupts expectation to render the pulsing messy lives of those too often calcified in myth,” says a ★★★ (out of four) review for USA TODAY.
