#1 New York Times bestselling author Harlan Coben
proves once again that "nobody writes them better" in a thriller
that asks a provocative question: Is a pretty lie better than
the ugly truth?
Harlan Coben published his first Myron Bolitar thriller, Deal
, in 1995, introducing a hero that would captivate
millions. Over the years we have watched Myron walk a tight rope
between sports agent, friend, problem solver and private eye, his
big heart quick to defend his client''s interests so fiercely that
he can''t help but jump in to save them, no matter the cost.
When former tennis star Suzze T and her rock star husband, Lex,
encounter an anonymous Facebook post questioning the paternity of
their unborn child, Lex runs off, and Suzze - at eight months
pregnant - asks Myron to save her marriage, and perhaps her
husband''s life. But when he finds Lex, he also finds someone he
wasn''t looking for: his sister-in-law, Kitty, who along with
Myron''s brother abandoned the Bolitar family long ago.
As Myron races to locate his missing brother while their father
clings to life, he must face the lies that led to the estrangement
- including the ones told by Myron himself. If we thought we knew
Myron Bolitar, Coben now proves we didn''t. An electric,
stay-up-all night thriller that unfolds at a breakneck pace,
proves that Harlan Coben still has the ability
to shock us anew.
