Okay, seriously. Harlan Coben doesn't set the price, the publishers do. The man worked hard to write the book, and the book critics have already been singing its praises and calling it his best book. Those are big words, considering the success he's had. The rating system is for the book itself, to give prospective customers an idea if it's any good. Don't throw up 1 and 2 star ratings because you think it's too expensive. I agree, the ebook does seem overpriced, but come on, use your heads! I got an advanced copy and must say it was great. Classic Harlan Coben/Myron Bolitar. I'm recommending it to all my friends. Readers -- Don't be turned off by all the people who want to rate a book based on it's price.

don't complain to B&N

I checked Amazon, and the Kindle version is $14.99. Seems that this could be the future of e-books due to the author and publisher demands. Too bad because the pricing was one of the reasons I bought one.

    out of ideas

    This was painful to read. I think it's time to create some new characters because this was the first predictable Coben book I've read out of a dozen or so. Brutal!

    Good read

    Fast moving. Gives the reader an insight into Myron's life and his friendship with Win. Is this really the end of the series? Coben makes you believe that it is.

    I never seem to tire of Myron Bolitar stories. This book did not disappoint.

    Stimulating Pace

    Daring, yet compassionate and fiercely loyal, Myron Bolitar is the kind of man anyone would be proud to call a friend. A jack-of-all-trades, this former pro-basketball hopeful turned agent will do anything; drop everything to help those lucky enough to be included within his inner circle. When longtime client, former tennis phenom and close personal friend, Suzze T arrives with a desperate plea, his deep-seated compulsion to lend a hand overrides the nagging suspicion that he might be meddling in places best left alone.
    Suzze T is dealing with unfamiliar feelings. She's finally come to the realization that she has the potential for true happiness and as a former addict, she understands-better than most-how precarious life can be. As she and her rock star husband look forward to the birth of their first child, her carefully built life begins to tilt when an anonymous facebook post questions the paternity of their unborn child.
    Coben writes a damn good thriller with stimulating pace and characters you can't help but find irresistible and "Live Wire" is no exception.
