Notes From Your Bookseller

Harlan Coben delivers more irresistible thrills built on a simple, effective hook. Myron Bolitar is back on the case, and there's so much to look forward to.

A man presumed dead is suddenly wanted for murder in this thriller of secrets, lies, and dangerous conspiracies that threaten to cover up the truth.
Three years ago, sports agent Myron Bolitar gave a eulogy at the funeral of his client, renowned basketball coach Greg Downing. Myron and Greg had history: initially as deeply personal rivals, and later as unexpected business associates. Myron made peace and moved on - until now, when twofederal agents walked into his office, demanding to know where Greg Downing is.

According to the agents, Greg is still alive-and has been placed at the scene of a double homicide, making him their main suspect. Shocked, Myron needs answers.

Myron and Win, longtime friends and colleagues, set out to find the truth, but the more they discover about Greg, the more dangerous their world becomes. Secrets, lies, and a murderous conspiracy that stretches back into the past churn at the heart of Harlan Coben's blistering new novel.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly


Bestseller Coben’s anemic 12th thriller featuring basketball-star-turned-sports agent Myron Bolitar (after 2016’s Home) suggests the series may be losing its bounce. Bolitar is stunned when the FBI demands the whereabouts of his former client Greg Downing, who supposedly died three years earlier. The two had a fraught history: after Bolitar slept with Downing’s fiancée on the eve of their wedding, Downing paid another player to rough him up, ending Bolitar’s career on the court. Now, the Bureau suspects Downing of two recent murders, having found his DNA under the fingernails of supermodel Cecelia Callister, who’s been killed along with her son. With the help of his best friend Win Lockwood, Bolitar starts investigating the possibility that Downing faked his own death. In the process, he stumbles on more murders Downing may have committed and reunites with his son, Jeremy, who harbors secrets of his own. While Coben’s decision to mine Bolitar and Downing’s rivalry for drama is initially promising, he squanders the setup with too many plot contrivances. This misses the mark. Agent: Lisa Erbach Vance, Aaron M. Priest Literary. (May)

JUNE 2024 - AudioFile

Steven Weber returns to narrate the twelfth installment in Coben's Myron Bolitar series. Sports agent Myron is contacted by the FBI when the DNA of a previous client, Greg Downing, is found at a murder scene. But Greg is dead--or at least that's the last Myron knew. With his partner, Win, Myron sets out to discover if Greg is truly dead and how his DNA has now shown up. With help from multiple people and insight from the FBI, Myron and Win realize they're dealing with a serial killer who is framing others, effectively closing the cases. The end of the story is less than successful because of unclear character voices and unclear shifts in point of view. However, Weber does a great job with the clear, well-paced narrative.

Kirkus Reviews

Sports agent Myron Bolitar meets the Setup Serial Killer, who’s found a highly effective way to keep anyone from connecting the dots.

There’s no arguing with DNA evidence, the ultimate forensic clincher. So when basketball player Greg Downing’s DNA is found on the scene where retired model Cecelia Callister and her son, Clay, were killed, the FBI comes calling on Myron to ask where they can find Greg. Myron’s a reasonable person to ask because Greg was his schoolmate and former client, the man who wooed and won Myron’s girlfriend away from him and made her Emily Downing. Try as he might, though, Myron can’t help much beyond repeating the obvious: Greg died three years ago, and his body was cremated. Since the Feds aren’t about to give up their search, Myron and his partner, financial advisor Win Lockwood, decide they’d better see if they can get ahead of this story by confirming or contradicting the story of Greg’s death. Meantime, a series of interleaved episodes show the killer eliminating a series of primary targets and framing secondary targets so convincingly for the murders, with special thanks to planted DNA, that it never occurs to the police to connect crimes that were so readily solved on their own. Complications arise when Myron’s thrown together with Jeremy Downing, the son he fathered in a pre-wedding tryst with Emily and then passed off as Greg’s, and when the allies of mob boss Joseph “Joey the Toe” Turant, who was locked up four years ago after his DNA-fueled conviction for the murder of Jordan Kravat, decide to lean on Myron to get him to reveal where Greg is.

A great premise leads through all the twists you’d expect to a thoroughly muddy final movement.
