Coben cranks out the hits through stand alone novels and the Bolitar series. Here is another and he does not disappoint on any level. Ny now we know the main characters, and they continue to show more depth for the reader. The plot? Full of twists and turns as we've come to expect, and even when we start to figure out where all the pieces fit, the book is nearly complete - but Coben still has a few important steps to take before he ties it all up. Can't wait to read #7 in the series.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

I have read all of the Myron Bolitar books. I love the characters but this one need not have been 273 pages in paperback. Coben could have told this story in less than 100.
I got "Live Wire" in hardcover for Mom's day and hope it's better than this one.

Coben does it again with his quirky writing style and humor. I was in total confusion about the real killer until the end so he kept me in suspence throughout the book.
I enjoy his wrting and look forward to reading something new. I believe I have read every book with Myron as the main character. Some day it would fun to meet him.

I have read almost all of the Myron Bolitar books and this is one of the best. The relationship between Myron and Win continues to evolve and is very interesting in this book so I think there is some benefit to reading the series in order. I highly recommend any of the books. Coban is one of the best writers in America and I hope they never make these books into a movie. I have an image of Myron, Win, Esperanza, Big Cyndi, and Myron's parents already in my head and I don't want a movie messing that up!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Readers consistently rave about this book, and the author's other many titles, but I just don't get it. The plot is plodding, the characters odd and perverse, and the protagonist a caricature of the Jewish momma's boy. Add to this the smart-alecky remarks of the two main characters and to me you've got a recipe for low-level novel of highly questionable import. It smacks of the cookie cutter thrillers that cram the bestseller lists but to me are a waste of time and money. Maybe I'm just not a mainstream American who thrives on this schlock genre.

I have read the entire Bolitar series, but this one struck me as particularly enjoyable. The book is very well written, and the juxtaposition between fear and humor makes for an entertaining read.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

This is my first Harlan Coben but definitely not my last. The writing is witty and colorful, the plot suspenseful and full of twists. Win is a great sidekick. Pick this one up if you want to be entertained while you're trying to solve the mystery.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

This is the first Myron Bolitar book I've read and I will definitely read the others. Mr. Coben combines unforgettable characters, hilarious dialogue and action-packed, suspenseful scenes to create a book that you won't be able to put down. I've read many, many books but this book is already one of my favorites. I'd like to write more but I gotta go buy the rest of the Myron Bolitar novels. READ THIS BOOK, YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
