The stunning young adult debut from international bestseller Harlan Coben is now in paperback!
Mickey Bolitar's year can't get much worse. After witnessing his father's death and sending his mom to rehab, he's forced to live with his estranged uncle Myron and switch high schools. Fortunately, he's met a great girl, Ashley, and it seems like things might finally be improving. But then Ashley vanishes. Mickey follows Ashley's trail into a seedy underworld that reveals that Ashley isn't who she claimed to be. And neither was Mickey's father. Soon Mickey learns about a conspiracy so shocking that it leaves him questioning everything about the life he thought he knew.
First introduced to readers in Harlan Coben's novel Live Wire Mickey Bolitar is as quick-witted and clever as his uncle Myron, and eager to go to any length to save the people he cares about. Follow Mickey Bolitar on his next adventure in Seconds Away, coming out in Fall 2012!
Publishers Weekly Review

I know this book is intended for a young adult audience, but I thoroughly enjoyed it...and I am just about as far from a "young adult" as you can get. A gripping tale that doesn't leave many places to run to the fridge or get a full night's sleep - couldn't put it down. Looking forward to the obvious next episode. Was waiting for Win to come and save the day, but Micky develops his own resources. Ema was a delight, I am casting the movie in my head....it would be a big hit I think.
I've read all of his books but this might be one of my favorites! It was hard to put down, so I didn't! Hope there is much more to come for Mickey and Myron.
Awesome as always Harlan ! I will be looking forward to the next
Mickey Bolitar novel. Now don't forget Myron now that Mickey is such a success ! BOLITAR'S RULE !
