We first met Myron Bolitar back in 1995 in the book Deal Breaker. He was an athlete knocked out of the game by an injury right before his first professional start so he became a Sports Agent to keep him in the game if only from the sidelines. But he was more than an agent, he was a friend, a confidant, a problem solver, and a guy with an enormous heart that to protect his clients he also eventually becomes a private eye.
With the help of his friends, Windsor Horne Lockwood III (Win), and two gals who were a former tag team with the Fabulous Ladies Of Wrestling (FLOW), MB Reps has grown into a firm that not only handles athletes, but authors, actors, artists, and musicians.
In this book we learn more about Myron's family and his past as he is forced to deal with some family issues. He is also trying to help former tennis star Suzze T (Trevantino) and rock star husband Lex get to the bottom of a paternity issue being posed about their unborn child on a Facebook page. Myron also learns that his family issues and these baby issues are intertwined in a way that leads him down a very dangerous path as he tries to find the truth that has been hidden for more than 15 years.
I LOVED IT!!!!! I LOVED IT!!!!! I LOVED IT!!!!!
If you have read the previous 9 Myron Bolitar novels and you think you know Myron Bolitar you will realize early into this book that you didn't know him at all.
Harlan Coben is by far the best author ever of the suspense thriller. He grabs you from the first word and like the title of one of his previous novels HOLD(s on) TIGHT until the very last word and leaves you wanting more. The difference between this novel and others in this series is than we learn more about Myron Bolitar than we ever have before and Coben ties it into the latest mystery brilliantly. What starts out as a simple question of who posted the anonymous Facebook comment builds into the thriller Coben is famous for, and brings to light the things Bolitar has kept hidden or to himself in the other books.
This is definitely a book you will want to read in one sitting, so plan accordingly and be prepared for a few surprises. This book proves than even Harlan Coben still has plenty up his sleeve to thrill and entertain us. Coben himself is the LIVE WIRE!!!

This book blew me away. Having read the other 9 Myron Bolitar books (which I loved) I expected more of the same. I was pleasantly surprised. If you've read the preceeding stories and throught you knew the characters, be prepared because you will find that you knew nothing. If you haven't picked up the series, this is an excellent start. Fun, well paced and keenly plotted Coben takes the reader through a wide variety of emotions right along with the characters.
It is a great read, one filled with the usual banter between Myron and his wonderful friend, Win. In this book, Win becomes so much more than just a good friend. I finished the book quickly due to the fact that I just could not put it down. Be prepared - this is a great ride!! I guarantee there are no pages to skip in this book.
Once again, no laundry, grocery shopping or cleaning took place this weekend. I stayed up reading way too late last night and picked up again this morning. The Myron Bolitar series is different from other Coben books, if you know Coben only from his thrillers, this is much different. Give it a chance and you will want to go back and read the previous Myron Bolitar books.
It was a long wait to be with Myron and Win again, but worth it. I really did not expect the ending, it never entered my mind. I feel like the characters are people I know and I feel like I am in the action. I love to read Harlen Coben from the moment I read the first book years ago. I love Myron, Win, Esperanza and Cindy and I hope to be able to spend time with them in the future.
It's been too long since the last Myron Bolitar book (I've read them all) and this one did not disappoint! From the first page I was hooked and then I just couldn't put it down. As always, Harlan Coben starts the book with a single puzzle piece, and throughout the rest he will give you one piece of the puzzle at a time, adding twist after twist to keep you guessing till the end. Great story!
I love the Myron Bolitar series.The relationship between Wynn and Myron keep me coming back for more. The fact that they solve murders and find people an added delight. I hope Mr. Coben keeps them coming at least until Myron and Wynn are old codgers still doing their thing.
