LIVE WIRE - Myron Bolitar Series No. 10
Celebrity agent Myron Bolitar and his friend Windsor Horne Lockwood III (Win) are back in this new mystery from Harlan Coben.
In this latest installment, Myron is visited by a very pregnant Suzze Tervantino. One of Myron's first clients, Suzze wants him to help her locate her rock star husband Lex Ryder, as well as find out who left a damaging message on her facebook page.
Bolitar's investigation takes him to a Manhattan nightclub where he catches a glimpse of his estranged sister-in-law Kitty. Myron hasn't seen Kitty or his brother Brad in sixteen years and is determined to find a way to reconnect. Suzze and Kitty were budding tennis stars together years ago and Myron is quickly immersed in a deadly investigation that includes both women as well as ties to organized crime. As usual, blueblood Win has Myron's back and is more than willing to use physical or deadly force to protect his friend.
Along with his investigation, Myron is dealing with a very ill father and a belligerent teenaged nephew he's never met before. Seriously involved with the woman he plans to spend his life with, it seems that Coben might have different plans for his characters in the future.
I've been a longtime fan of Harlan Coben and have read and enjoyed all ten of the Bolitar novels. His seamless writing and intricate plots make his books a total pleasure to read.
