Mickey Bolitar’s year can’t get much worse. After witnessing his father’s death and sending his mom to rehab, he’s forced to live with his estranged uncle Myron and switch high schools.
A new school comes with new friends and new enemies, and lucky for Mickey, it also comes with a great new girlfriend, Ashley. For a while, it seems like Mickey’s train wreck of a life is finally improving - until Ashley vanishes without a trace. Unwilling to let another person walk out of his life, Mickey follows Ashley’s trail into a seedy underworld that reveals that this seemingly sweet, shy girl isn’t who she claimed to be. And neither was Mickey’s father. Soon, Mickey learns about a conspiracy so shocking that it makes high school drama seem like a luxury - and leaves him questioning everything about the life he thought he knew.
First introduced to readers in Harlan Coben’s latest adult novel, Live Wire, Mickey Bolitar is as quick-witted and clever as his uncle Myron, and eager to go to any length to save the people he cares about.

This book is amazing!!! The characters are really bold (not your everyday high schoolers) and there is always a spine chilling cliff hanger at the end of the chapter leaving you with mystery. It's written well, and has a really great, And original! The only bad thing I have to say is that the end conclusion is a little hard to understand.... You might have to go back a re-read a bit (I did). Over all, a great book!! Great for people who like sci-fi or mysteries! U should definitely purchase it!!! (wow! That was a lot! Sorry for rambling a bit! I just had A LOT to say
Very good book, but I do think Mickey is a bit hard on his uncle and in this book it seems that Myron is oblivious to all that Mickey is doing and that is not the Myron that I've come to know
