She’s smart, beautiful, and she doesn’t need a man to look after her. But sports agent Myron Bolitar has come into her life—big time. Now Myron’s next move may be his last.

Brenda Slaughter is no damsel in distress. Myron Bolitar is no bodyguard. But Myron has agreed to protect the bright, strong, beautiful basketball star. And he’s about to find out if he’s man enough to unravel the tragic riddle of her life.

Twenty years before, Brenda’s mother deserted her. And just as Brenda is making it to the top of the women’s pro basketball world, her father disappears too. A big-time New York sports agent with a foundering love life, Myron has a professional interest in Brenda. Then a personal one. But between them isn’t just the difference in their backgrounds or the color of their skin. Between them is a chasm of corruption and lies, a vicious young mafioso on the make, and one secret that some people are dying to keep—and others are killing to protect.

    " Good suspense, funny, and witty. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bruce Snell | 2/18/2014

    " Book 5 in the Myron Bolitar series by Harlan Coben. Myron is hired to bodyguard the star player in a new women's professional basketball league. Brenda's mother went missing 20 years ago. Her father went missing a week ago. And now someone is making threatening telephone calls to her. Brenda doesn't want a bodyguard, she just wants Myron to find her mother. Myron has to deal with the mafia trying to start a rival women's basketball league. He also must deal with the millionaire family of the man running for governor, and the candidate's (possibly murdered) dead wife. In the end, several more people end up dead, Myron is threatened, kidnapped, threatened some more, and (finally) solves the disappearances and murders. This is not a book with any happy endings, but that is not a criticism, it is a recommendation - most books of this type take the easy out, and everyone lives happily after, this is a nice change. The more of Coben's works I read, the more I like them. "

    " Not disappointed. Another great mystery. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stacy Bearse | 1/30/2014

    " Another adventure for PI/Jock/Sports Agent Myron Bolitar. Coben keeps the series entertaining, funny and suspenseful. I look forward to the next installment. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Deb Mjaatvedt | 1/29/2014

    " So, SO much better than the last Bolitar novel (Back Spin). That one was an absolute throw-away that I forgot as soon as I finished. This one is wonderful. It would be helpful to know the background of all of these terrific recurring characters, but it's strong enough to stand on its own. Restored my faith in the Bolitar series and I look forward to the #6. "

    " Audio Book. Myron Bolitar is asked to protect the new WNBA star Brenda. He knew Brenda's father from some the days when Myron played. Myron ends up trying to find Brenda's mother. It turns out her mother was killed along time ago by her aunt. She was "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tracey | 12/16/2013

    " I was happy there was more of Win in this book. These are fun reads, but definitely a little dated with some of the references he makes. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amber | 12/14/2013

    " One of my favorite suspense/mystery writers. He adds a lot of humor into his books with the "Myron Bolitar" character. Gotta love that! A must read author for those who like suspense. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erin May | 12/14/2013

    " Love the main character- Myron. Always good, fast paced and suspenseful. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kip | 11/29/2013

    " Coben's Bolitar series just gets better and better as it progresses. A solid thriller. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elizabeth | 11/23/2013

    " This is the 5th Myron Bolitar book I have read of the series and although not great literature, it is an exciting story which definitely holds your attention. I found this book to have something the others have lacked...Passion of emotion. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sharon | 11/22/2013

    " I like all of Coben's books. A little mystery- who dunit, a little romance, and I think he is a great character. Fun to read and usually a quick read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dani | 8/27/2013

    " This series gets better with each book, and I'm truly enjoying it. The humor is definitely firing on all cylinders, Win is his dryly witty, kick-butt self, and I do love that. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Denorris | 8/7/2013

    " Good, but not the best one hes done. The characters were not as witty as they usually are and he seemed to be stretching a little to end the book. Kind of a random ending to an otherwise good start, but still worth the read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joe Barone | 6/24/2013

    " 5th book in a series starring Myron Bolitar, x-college basketball star turned sports agent. Harlan Coben is a easy to read author with suspense, humor, and unique characters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mark | 5/20/2013

    " Into a flurry of Coben works...love the Myron Bolitar series...plots, characters, dialogue etc...this one has Myron & co. protecting a WNBA star...plenty of twists...in each one you gain more and more insights into the character's backstories immensley enjoyable...a fun and fast read!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Imageseer | 10/29/2012

    " I hate to admit this, but this is type of book feeds into my guilty pleasure of reading a macho 'can-do' guy who can work his way through troubling problems. If you like this type of detective thriller...you'll enjoy the journey. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Paul Servini | 9/21/2012

    " This is the first novel in this series I've read and I was not convinced. The characters are very well painted but on the whole I found it a little unwieldy and not always easy to follow. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mailmanr5 | 9/3/2012

    " See "Deal Breaker". Fourth in series. Still hooked. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Conrad | 8/7/2012

    " Typical Coben. Keeps you guessing, and keeps you interested. Quirky Myron, dangerous Win, and the other cast of "characters" who are truly characters. Fun to read, and the usual parental link to the mystery. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bridget | 5/26/2012

    " Another good installment of the Myron Bolitar series. Very glad I discovered Harlan Coben (first book of his I read was Tell No One) - he's a good mystery writer, and I like the characters he creates. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susan | 5/14/2012

    " Really enjoy the main characters in this series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Evelyn | 1/27/2012

    " Pro women's basketball star Brenda Slaughter asks Myron to investigate the disappearance of her father, who also happens to be Myron's old coach and mentor. Fifth in the series--and the first to come out in hardcover. Highly recommend. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jill | 12/27/2011

    " This is the first book that shows Myron's vulneralbe side where he really cares about for a woman who has made many mistakes. He wants the American Dream. He's willing to forgive and work on a relationship that is on ground "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Fiona Robson | 12/26/2011

    " Classic Harlan Coben. Love the Myron Bolitar series. It's like meeting up with old friends. Didn't see the twist at the end of this book coming at all. Brilliant. "

    " This one annoyed me. Not to give it away, but reality was ignored even more than it usually is with these books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Courtney | 3/12/2011

    " Wasn't the best of the series, or the worst (well, there's no "worst" that's coming to mind)..... liked it, but didn't love it. In reality, though, I have never met a Harlan Coben book that I didn't enjoy, so I will now move on to the next Myron book in the series! "

    " Easily the best book of the Myron Bolitar series to this point. An easy and captivating read, which builds on the relationships and characters that readers have come to know so well over time. It is the first time you start to think that Myron is growing up. "

    " My favourite Myron Bolitar book so far "
