Witty, sarcastic, and fun. Combine a mystery, a sports theme, a likeable amateur detective and his eccentric enfocer and you get an easy, enjoyable read. Don't expect to be blown away by the plot which isn't particularly clever or put together, but the characters and dialogue are great.
3 stars out of 5
I found Harlan Coben just last year and have read every single book he has on the market. I love his writing and the way he builds his characters. It is an absolute pleasure to read his books in order and see their progression.
originally I thought the sports aspect would be a turn-off for me, but it has so little to do with the story that it didn't bother me at all.
If you're looking for a quick, good, fun read, this is the book for you.
It is no wonder that Harlan Coben has won so many awards. Deal Breaker is the first of the series featuring Myron Bolitar, the sports agent who hates his first name with a passion. Few are the mystery novels with witty lines such as this series has. Try it; you will enjoy it.
The first Myron Bolitar novel but thankfully not the last.
Great twists and turns, a real page turner. Written with a terrific sense of humor.
LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT.
Myron Bolitar is a stud who is not intimidated by anyone. Quick read, and quite a page turner. There were new suspects around every corner. The ending was quite surprising.
