Great story, full of twists all the way to the end. Couldn't put it down until I finished the whole thing. Coben does it best with just the right amount of suspense and humor.
This book has some continuity with the Coben book that follows it called "The Final Detail". It's not necessary to read One False Move first in order to enjoy the other one, but it would, let's say, "enhance the experience".
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.
Snappy dialogue, fast paced and great plot
I just can't find any redeeming qualities in this book. Even the "good" guys are bad, very bad. The story is depressing, nobody really wins and there's just nothing uplifting at all about it. I should state that I am a fan of Harlan Coben, but not the Myron Bolitar books, and this one proved to be no exception. It's almost like they're written by a different author, or perhaps the author is just writing to a different audience. Or, in this case, perhaps the author was just really depressed? In any case, I'll read more Harlen Coban, but definitely no more Myron Bolitar stories. It certainly keeps your interest and is a quick read, but that's about all the positive I can give it. Goodbye Myron!
This is one of my favorite Myron books thus far. Unfortunately the narrator's voice is quite grating. Why does he drop it so artifically low -- it's like nails over a blackboard after some time.
