The first character the reader meets in Harlan Coben’s new novel is none other than Kat Donovan.

A shout out, perhaps, to a well-known local politician?

Ridgewood resident Harlan Coben will release his new novel, “Missing You,” on Tuesday, March 18. Coben will sign copies of “Missing You” during an appearance at Bookends scheduled for 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, March 19.

Keep reading.

Strike that thought.

Known for his penchant to include people and places from close to home, Coben insists that it is a mere coincidence the protagonist in “Missing You,” which officially hits bookstore shelves March 18, shares a similar name with the Bergen County executive. And as one proceeds deeper and deeper into the thriller, Coben’s assertion becomes strikingly true.

For starters, Kathleen Donovan is the head of Bergen’s executive branch of government. Kat Donovan, as the reader quickly discovers, is involved in law enforcement, a detective with the New York City Police Department who is haunted, almost equally, by the uncertain truths behind her father’s murder and the mysterious past and whereabouts of an ex-fiancé.
