We gave it a B+

In Harlan Coben’s Hold Tight concerned suburban parents install a spyware program on their 16-year-old son’s computer, which leads them to suspect that he knows more than he’s letting on about a classmate’s suicide.

Movie Pitch
We see Jodie Foster, in Flightplan mode, as the overprotective mom. And perhaps Russell Crowe as the ex-jock dad?

Lowdown
Coben delivers another fast-paced (if a bit by-the-numbers) economy-class best-seller. B+
