Lists with This Book. Oh, Coben, you have done it again. With 20 pages left I was wondering if I was going to give this book more than 3 stars, or if it was going to end up being mediocre. The story is far fetched and highly unbelievable, but I am willing to suspend belief for a few hundred pages of Myron and Win antics. Then, as the story was winding down – WHAM!
You gotta read this series in order. You will Oh, Coben, you have done it again. You will miss out on a lot of subtle nuances if you don’t. Jul 25, Julie rated it really liked it Shelves: Myron has an opportunity to live the dream of playing professional basketball, which was denied him after a career ending injury.
Myron’s college basketball teammate, and friend, Greg Downing, has gone AWOL and the team is trying to keep it away from the press. Myron gets a spot on the team in order to find out what has really happened to Greg. The plot is a little complex with a few too many characters thrown into the mix, but overall, I enjoyed the mystery, never guessing how it would end. The last paragraph in the book is truly wicked and left me a satisfied grin on my face. View all 6 comments.
I very much have missed Myron Bolitar, but feel I must have waited too long in between books and I did skip this one and read number 4 first, I was not happy about this. I wasn’t as excited about this book as I would have hoped, Win and Myron did have the same humour and bantering as always, but I was missing something.
An easy read as always, and an added bonus to read about Myron’s knee injury which crushed his career. Understanding the source of this left for a great segway into the next ti I very much have missed Myron Bolitar, but feel I must have waited too long in between books and I did skip this one and read number 4 first, I was not happy about this.

Still looking forward to the rest, unsure if I will ever coebn to the Mickey spin off, so many books, so little time! May 28, Phrynne rated it really liked it. Another excellent book in this series. I am now a fully subscribed Harlan Coben fan and I will continue to read about Myron until he stops writing them.
I enjoyed getting to know the characters better, I was totally engrossed in the story and I laughed out loud at some off the funny comments. There are a couple of lines right at the end about what Win harrlan next which were great.
Karma at its best.
View all 16 comments. Not the best in this series. The plot was not bad, but the lame dialog was at times off-putting. I think I like Coben’s newer stand alones so much that I expect the same quality in these older books.
You can’t ignore that fact–these books are old, 90’s humor, and were probably hysterical back in the day. Now, not so much. View all 9 comments.

He is therefore astonished when the owner of the New Jersey Dragons, a team headed for the playoffs, offers him a job as a player. But it turns out that this is to be a cover for the real job–finding the whereabouts of one of the team’s star players, Greg Downing, who has disappeared on the eve of the playoffs. Myron and Greg have a history as rivals go Myron Bolitar’s professional basketball careeer ended before it ever really began with a severe knee injury sustained during a pre-season game.
Myron and Greg have a history as rivals going back to their high school basketball days. Soon a body shows up, that of a mysterious “Carla”, and the puzzle thickens. Myron and Win are two of the more original “detectives” in the mystery genre, and Coben’s comic touch, as usual, really enlivens the story.
Win is definitely everyone’s favorite sociopath. The climax is completely unexpected and well-written; the ending, quite appropriately, is somewhat somber and a little ambivalent. There is a brief and pretty superficial look at the price sports superstars pay for their celebrity status that is crucial to the plot.
Highly recommended for a good, light read. Jan 17, Amanda McGill rated it really liked it Shelves: Do you ever read a series, or even an author’s novels, super slowly because you want to savour every novel and enjoy this adventure that they bring you on?
