This book is a cross between a private investigator and the movie Jerry Maguire (involving a sports agent). A really slow start with chapters that don't appear to flow together. Seems kinda disjointed until around page 140 when it picks up and start making sense.

Myron Bolitar is an ex-basketball star who gets injured and becomes a sports agent. In the slow times, he has been tapped by friends to investigate crimes and such is what happens here. Myron's high school sweetheart calls out of the blue on day with a fantastic story that catches his interest immediately. Her son has a rare form of blood disorder and needs a bone marrow transplant in order to survive. However the only donor match that was found has disappeared off the face of the earth. She asks Myron to locate said donor. All hell breaks loose at this point and the plot thickens. A journalist, a serial killers, a reclusive rich family, a couple of ex-female wrestlers, a paternity test, a missing donor and one very sick 13 year old child are all in the mix. It sounds kooky and it is but somehow Harlan Coben works it all together and comes up with an incredibly suspenseful mystery novel that will hold your attenion (once you get past page 140) until the end. Many surprising twists and emotional roller coasters. Good stuff.

As with all Harlan Coben books, I loved this Darkest Fear ! Over the years, he has become my favorite writer and my only disappointment is that I have only one of his books left to read !

Myron Bolitar's ex-girlfriend, Emily Downing, approaches him with a request. Her son, Jeremy, has a rare disorder and needs a bone marrow transplant or he will die. The donor has disappeared and she needs Myron to track him down. Myron feels bad but doesn't want to get involved, until Emily drops a bombshell: Jeremy is Myron's son. With the help of Win and Esperanza, Myron begins a search which leads him to a missing child, brutal kidnappings, a disgraced reporter, and a possible serial killer.

This is the 7th book in the Myron Bolitar series. You would think by now, the series would be getting stale or the author would be running out of surprise twists to throw us off. But this series is still going strong. Another great mystery with many seeming loose ends that end up tied in a neat bow at the end. My rating: 5 Stars.
