Deal Breaker

I have just started reading/listening to Harlan Coben this summer, and have been more than pleasantly surprised. I started with "The Woods", and went on to "The Promise", and when I read "The Promise" I had to start at the beginning! In Deal Breaker we are introduced to Myron Bolitar, who is an ex-basketball star, and is now a sports agent/detective. I found this book to be both engaging and thrilling, and highly recommend it to one and all. I believe that it bridges many genres, and that it will keep you interested from the first page. I can't wait to read all of the Myron Bolitar novels!

Mystery + Sports Angle = Great Story

This book was a great surprise, much better than expected. Myron Bolitar is a sports agent and his client's girlfriend is missing. His client is a promising quarterback who wants a lot of money from his new contract. So what happened to his girlfriend and who is responsible? Harlan Coben weaves an interesting case that keeps the reader guessing as to who killed her or if she is actually alive. One thing I really appreciated was several times during the book the author reviews the facts as they stand. Helps the reader not miss any important clues. The reader was excellent. He made the characters come to life by his voice, timing, and inflection. This was like finding a treasure. I loved this book and I can't wait to read more by this author.
