In this sixth novel in the award-winning Myron Bolitar series, Harlan Coben delivers a riveting powerhouse thriller—a twisting mystery of betrayal, family secrets, and murder.
Myron Bolitar’s colleague at MB SportsReps, Esperanza, has been arrested for the murder of a client, a fallen baseball star attempting a comeback. Myron is determined to prove Esperanza’s innocence—even if she won’t speak to him on the advice of her lawyer, who warns Myron to keep away from both the case and his client. But Myron is already too close, too involved, and has too much at stake. And the closer Myron gets to the truth, the more the evidence points to the only viable suspect besides Esperanza: Myron himself.

Ok, but not Coben's best
After having read the author's first five Myron Bolitar novels, I was expecting still another good read.
However, in this novel the author seems to get bogged down in writing paragraph after paragraph after paragraph in attempting to describe a clubhouse, a town, or a street when just a few sentences would do. It was almost like he was attempting to add words to the novel to extend the number of pages to the book. Sometimes the descriptions went on for pages. I would just scan the pages hoping to get on with the story.
And, it would seem that the star of the novel, Myron Bolitar, is becoming a little to overly emotional regarding his relationships with parents, best friends, and girl friends. For a 30 something year old man to run sobbing and weeping to a men's restroom after your dad has told you he had some chest pains is a little too much for my tastes. Oh well, different strokes for different folks.
I'll read one more Bolitar novel and if it's like this one, no more Myron Bolitar for me.
