Publisher's Summary

The boy was born and raised on the Main Line, but he vanished on Philadelphia's mean streets, last seen in a downtown cheater's hotel. The boy's mother, Linda Coldren, is a golf superstar and Myron Bolitar's client. When he goes after the missing boy, presumed kidnapped, he crashes through a crowd of lowlifes, blue bloods, and liars on both sides of the social divide. Meanwhile, Linda's husband is trying to stage a comeback at the U.S. Open, only to be found dead in a sand trap. Suddenly the family's skeletons are coming out of the closet and Myron is about to find out how deadly golf can get.

"Another winner....Pungent observations, indelibly drawn characters and a twisting, surprise-laden plot." (Atlanta Journal-Constitution)

More motives than ever...

I enjoy Harlan Coban's mysteries and have just finished this gem set during the US Open for golf. The plot is loaded with twists and turns and it seems everyone has a motive to kill or kidnap! While the ending is a bit of an all too quick wrap up I enjoyed the story and was disappointed that there was no more.
The narrator excels on all the parts except the sidekick Esmerelda (Esmee) where the accent falls short.

Backspin

As a Coben fan, I really enjoyed the story. Unfortunately, the narrator drove me to distraction. I thought the dialog and voices were pretty good, but the narative between was sing-song and totally unnerving. The narrator could do with some lessons in reading the non-dialogue parts.
