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 fiancée, 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 wants 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 appearance.

Quotes & Awards

  • “[Coben’s] depiction of the sports marketing scene is hilarious.”

    Los Angeles Times Book Review

  • “Like fellow-wisecracking P.I.’s Spenser and Elvis Cole, Myron Bolitar is great fun in the best hard-boiled tradition.”

    Houston Chronicle

  • “A tightly plotted book…Sports agent Myron Bolitar and his off-kilter sidekick Win are two of the most intriguing new characters in mystery fiction. This one kept me guessing to the end.”

    Janet Dawson, author of Nobody’s Child

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Steve Anderson | 2/18/2014

    " I guess if I would have made this my first Myron Bolitar book I would have had a different impression. It doesn't lack the action, wit and plot twists of a typical Bolitar novel but it did become somewhat predictable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Gloria | 2/14/2014

    " This was a relatively quick read and I actually liked it better than I thought I would when I first started it. It kept me guessing and threw me some real surprises, and that is always rather fun. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Aurora | 2/11/2014

    " It was a good book because I didn't figure it out until almost the end - however, it wasn't a great book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Angela | 2/6/2014

    " Very predictable "who dunnit". Also, the edition I read had an obscene amount of typos, which was pretty annoying. "
