Harlan Coben is an amazing author. He writes suspense, mysteries with some dry witted humor and usually an insane twist at the endings. Harlan is up there with James Patterson and Dean Koontz. This is one of his books that feature Myron Bolitar, an ex- basketball player turned sports agent and hero extraordinaire. Harlan has written quite a few books featuring Myron including, Deal Breaker, Fade Away, Back Spin, One False Move, The Final Detail, and The Darkest Fear. Storyline (as on the back of the book): The young woman was shot dead in cold blood, dropped outside the stadium, in front of a stand selling Moet for $7.50 a glass. Once, her tennis career had skyrocketed. Now, at the height of the U.S. Open, the headlines were being made by another young player from the wrong side of the tracks. When sports agent Myron Bolitar investigates the killing, he uncovers a connection between the two players and a six-year-old murder at an exclusive mainline club. Suddenly Myron is in over his head. And with a dirty U.S. senator, a jealous mother, and the mob all drawn into the case, he finds himself playing the most dangerous game of all- up against a killer and the truth.

Characters: I really enjoy Myron, he is witty, tough, and a lot of fun. Myron also has an insane friend, Win that is featured in all the books. I would love for Harlan to write a book featuring Win as the main character.

Overall Opinion: This is by far not the best Myron Bolitar novel but is still read worthy. This story was a little mundane and predictable compared to some of the others. There also was not as a dramatic ending as usual. I would still recommend it even though it is not as good as some of the others.
