Sports agent Myron Bolitar is poised on the edge of the big time. So is Christian Steele, a rookie quarterback and Myron's prized client. But when Christian gets a phone call from a former girlfriend, a woman who everyone, including the police, believes is dead, the deal starts to go sour. Trying to unravel the truth about a family's tragedy, a woman's secret, and a man's lies, Myron is up against the dark side of his business—where image and talent make you rich, but the truth can get you killed.
In novels that crackle with wit and suspense, Edgar Award winner Harlan Coben has created one of the most fascinating and complex heroes in suspense fiction—Myron Bolitar—a hotheaded, tenderhearted sports agent who grows more and more engaging and unpredictable with each page-turning appearance.
New Favorite Protagonist
Story flows smoothly. Good narration. Enjoyed Myron Bolitar's smart assed sense of humor. Will definitely check out rest of the series.
Myron and Win, what a combo!
I have enjoyed the Bolitar series but had missed this frist one. I enjoyed it as much as the others! A bit rougher than the next three but still enjoyed it.
Who says mysteries have to be serious?
It was fun to listen to this older work from this relatively new author. Coben's later novels take themselves very seriously, and they are good. But I was delighted by the wry wit and turn-of-phrase in this one. A great bunch of characters with a lot of character!
