Harlan Coben has risen to the top of bestseller lists worldwide, attracting voracious audiences for his peerless novels of domestic suspense as well as those featuring his fan-favorite sports agent, Myron Bolitar. Now in Live Wire, he offers a knock-your-socks-off novel that will electrify all his fans: Myron’s family takes center stage.

Myron Bolitar has always dreamed about the voluptuous femme fatale walking into his office and asking for help. The woman standing in his doorway has killer curves all right: She’s eight months pregnant, which kind of ruins the fantasy. Former tennis star Suzze T and her rock star husband, Lex, are both clients, and over the years Myron has negotiated his share of contracts for the power pair. But now Lex has disappeared and a very pregnant Suzze is in tears, fearing the online rumors questioning the baby’s paternity have driven away the man she swears is the child’s father.

For Myron, questions of fatherhood couldn’t hit closer to home, as his dad, Al, clings to life; the brother who abandoned them all those years ago is in trouble; and Myron’s teenage nephew needs an authority figure. Myron is soon forced to confront deep secrets in Suzze’s past; his family’s mortality—and before Live Wire is over, his own.

    " His books read so fast that sometimes I feel cheated out that they don't last longer. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melissa | 2/6/2014

    " i'm wondering is this the last myron bolitar book? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Diane Shipley | 2/5/2014

    " I really liked this book, but I like Coben's characters in these books. This is a Myron Bolitar book, with his friend Winn. The story keeps you guessing, and the plot is very intriging. Loved it. One of his better books for sure. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Abby Fick | 1/29/2014

    " For the first half I thought it's ok Coben is ending Myron and Win's series. I'm ready for it to be over. I mean, Myron just keeps getting himself and others into trouble with nothing but the best of intentions. Over, and over, and over again. But by the end it had me, just like all the other books. Even caught myself thinking maybe I'd check out the Mickey series just to get glimpses of Myron every now and again. I really can't start another series right now. I can't. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joann | 1/29/2014

    " anything by Coben is worth the read "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mark | 1/25/2014

    " Change is the theme for the latest edition of the life and times of Myron Bolitar...from the beginning in Deal Breaker to this newest one, Coban has created wonderful characters that drive the entire series...the whole gang is included as they are drawn into an affair that meshes the personal with the professional...fun read as always....a real winner again!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sharon | 1/17/2014

    " Fast-paced mystery. Colorful characters. Explosive writing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ray | 1/12/2014

    " If you love Coben's Myron Bolitar character and series, then this "finale" will not disappoint. What a great ending to a wonderful series. I'll miss the whole crew: Myron, Win, Esperanza, Big Cyndi, El-Al, etc. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Darlene | 12/20/2013

    " Another great Coben book "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joe Barone | 12/16/2013

    " The suspense was there, but the plot was a convoluted mess. This may be the end of Myron Bolitar. His sports rep firm gets sold and he pretty much parts ways with his "partners". Only time will tell the fate of these great characters. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kristy Worden | 12/12/2013

    " I have read several of the Myron Bolitar books and enjoyed them all. This one was fast paced, and the ending came as a surprise unlike many other books. I wouldn't read this one first though - if you are considering this book, go back and build some background with the others first. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mo | 11/27/2013

    " Another great book where you didn't see that one coming... Kudos Harlan! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mich | 2/10/2013

    " I could spend all day reading Coben's books. Used to think his stand alones were the best but the last few Myron books have jumped right in there! Lee child, Robert Parker, Harlen Coben!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Petra Bobovec szabó | 1/21/2013

    " excellent just like all coben books with a good story and complex plot, full of unecpected twists.however,I had the feeling there was a cliffhanger in the end..that the story might,has or will continue and that not all has been said yet....or what has been said is not the whole truth...it might turn "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Susan-k | 11/16/2012

    " Not much of a detective novel fan but occasionally I try just in case. This is a very so so book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Freddy | 8/24/2012

    " i realized after about three pages how much i missed the bolitar series. if you've read the previous books and are a Coben fan you'll enjoy this one as well. lots of similar characters including of course myron and win. lots of twists and turns and coben fun. definetely reccomend. enjoy... "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Dave | 7/8/2012

    " Wow! I can't believe how much I disliked this book. One character after another who was a total jerk. A gaggle of Big Cyndie fat jokes. Two stoners who wonder aloud about grains of sand on a beach. A dud of a plot. I've enjoyed several Harlan Coben books but this was just awful. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Madeline | 7/5/2012

    " I am a real fan of Myron Bolitar stories. This was another good one that has added an interesting new character. I look forward to reading more about him! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jessica | 6/24/2012

    " Harlan Coben never disappoints! I loved this book as much as or more than his others and I can't wait to read his next. "

    " ...another find from my AZ library's new/best seller table (LOVE this library!! So much more than in TX) and am giving it a try... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Will | 12/11/2011

    " I quit reading at page 30. I do not like the "super hip" style of lingo. I find some of Coben's books to be interesting; but this one definitely did not do it for me! I doubt that I will read any more of the Myron Bolitar series in the future. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Allison | 10/20/2011

    " Another great book:) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sona | 10/17/2011

    " last ?? (or at least the latest) in the Myron Bolitar series. Enjoyed, but seemed like it was written to wrap up the Myron series and start on the Mickey series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sian | 5/25/2011

    " havent read him in a wire - will need to go back and pick them up again "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 April | 5/23/2011

    " This is true Harlen Coben. All the words, paragraphs and sentences lead to the final ending. Short enough to read in a couple of days. It's always refreshing to see the dark and mysterious Win in his rich-kid role and in his dark-avenger role. Myron is the mediator as usual. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Vicki | 5/23/2011

    " I am listening to this book with earphones (mp3 player) while I walk on the treadmill. "

    " I love this series! His books are always good. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jann | 5/18/2011

    " I always enjoy the Myron Bolitar series. This one has many twists and turns and introduces a nephew. Coban is beginning a series about this character that is geared toward the younger generation. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ellen | 5/17/2011

    " Didn't disappoint! Love this author and his Myron Bolitar/Win series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Patti | 5/15/2011

    " Excellent as usual. How does he do it? Every time I read one of his books I always think that this time it won't be as good, but it always is. Fabulous. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Teryl | 5/15/2011

    " Always a good light read. Love the characters, good twist in the tale. Great travel book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathleele | 5/14/2011

    " I really liked this book, but am left wondering if this is the end of Myron Bolitar?????? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pam | 5/14/2011

    " 3.5 stars: Typical Myron Bolitar book - quick read, good story line, characters a bit far-fetched but also showing some depth, with some darker plot twists. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hapzydeco | 5/11/2011

    " Coben maintains his snap with Winsdor Horne Lockwood III and his crackle with Esperanza, but this story’s ending produces a pop, which places this novel amongst Coben's best. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laurie | 5/10/2011

    " Love Harlan Coben books. This series is fun too since you care about Myron and his friends. This book has some nice humor too, in middle of the grit, and current things like checking people out on Facebook, which is fun to read. "
