Publisher's Summary

Myron Bolitar, sports agent and reluctant sleuth, is happily basking in the Caribbean sun with a beautiful woman he hardly knows. Interrupting this bliss, Win, his loyal but morally questionable sidekick, arrives to tell him that Esperanza, Myron's best friend and partner at MB SportsReps, has been arrested for the murder of a fallen baseball star and Bolitar client.Myron returns to the city immediately to prove Esperanza's innocence, against her wishes. And as he tries to unearth a killer amid a tangled trail of lies, Myron's own investigation points to only one other suspect: himself, as this spellbinding novel twists, jolts, and careens toward its dazzling finish.

Plot A Tad Wobbly But Still Fine

Jonathan Marosz stuns as usual... Pitch perfect but...

Harlan Coban's writing, for the first time in this series, trips over his feet... While the writing crackles as usual and the ensemble cast moves me to laughs, smiles, frowns, and yeah... tears... I missed the fact that Esperanza's (Little Pocahontas) is off stage through too much of this puzzle mystery.

Once again let me urge readers to start this series with the first of the Myron Bolitar mysteries since the characters grow and their relationships mature. Moreover it's becoming more and more useful to understand the previous stories and their role in the characters' development.

This time Myron's involved with baseball BUT... do not let the sports-agent role of the lead character deter you... everything sports related you need to know is powerfully and memorably explained.

I recommend "The Final Detail" and I expect to soon listen to the next in this series. It's just that there are some plot twists here that come to the very edge of the cliff named implausibility. In the past, Coban has avoided that drop-off. Or at least he's expertly wafted sufficient fog to totally obscure its presence.

Still... read the earlier works in order and then... buy this, listen, and get ready for the next. It's worth it.

Myron and his side-kick are witty and fun to spend time with. Don't take them so seriously. Just enjoy.
