Valerie Simpson is a young female tennis star with a troubled past who''s now on the verge of a comeback and wants Myron as her agent. Myron, who''s also got the hottest young male tennis star, Duane Richwood, primed to take his first grand slam tournament, couldn''t be happier. That is, until Valerie is murdered in broad daylight at the U.S. Open and Myron''s number one client becomes the number one suspect.

Clearing Duane''s name should be easy enough. Duane was playing in a match at the time of Valerie''s death. But why is his phone number in Valerie''s black book when he claims only to have known her in passing? Why was she calling him from a phone booth on the street? The police stop caring once they pin the murder on a man known for having stalked Valerie and seen talking to her moments before the murder. But Myron isn''t satisfied. It seems too clean for him.

Myron pries a bit and finds himself prying open the past where six years before, Valerie''s fiancee, the son of a senator, was brutally murdered by a juvenile delinquent and a straight-A student was subsequently gunned down on the street in retaliation, his death squandered in bureaucratic files. And everyone from the Senator to the mob want Myron to stop digging.

The truth beneath the truth is not only dangerous, it''s deadly. And Myron may be the next victim.

In novels that crackle with wit and suspense, Edgar Award winner Harlan Coben has created one of the most fascinating and complex heroes in suspense fiction-Myron Bolitar-a hotheaded, tenderhearted sports agent who grows more and more engaging and unpredictable with each page-turning appearance.

Chapter One Cesar Romero," Myron said. Win looked at him. "You''renot serious." "I''m starting off with aneasy one." On Stadium Court the players were changing sides. Myron''s client,Duane Richwood, was shellacking the number-fifteen seed IvanSomething-okov, leading 5-0 in the third set after winning the firsttwo sets 6-0, 6-2. An impressive U.S. Open debut for the unseededtwenty-one-year-old upstart from the streets (literally) of New York. " Cesar Romero," Myron repeated. "Unless you don''t know." Win sighed. "The Joker." "Frank Gorshin." "The Riddler." Ninety-second commercial break. Myron and Win were keeping themselvesbusy with a scintillating game of Name the Batman Criminal. The TVBatman. The Batman starring Adam West and Burt Ward and all those Pow,Bam, Slam balloons. The real Batman. "Who played the second one?" Myron asked. "The second Riddler?" Myron nodded. From across the court Duane Richwood flashed them a cocky smile. Hesported garish aviator sunglasses with loud fluorescent green frames.The latest style from Ray*Ban. Duane was never without them. He hadbecome not only identified by the shades but defined by them.Ray*Ban was rather pleased. Myron and Win sat in one of the two players'' boxes reserved forcelebrities and players'' entourages.
