Deal Breaker by Harlan Coben

From the Publisher
Sports agent Myron Bolitar is poised on the edge of the big time. So is Christian Steele, a rookie quarterback and Myron’s prized client. But when Christian gets a phone call from a former girlfriend, a woman who everyone, including the police, believes is dead, the deal starts to go sour. Trying to unravel the truth about a family’s tragedy, a woman’s secret, and a man’s lies, Myron is up against the dark side of his business—where image and talent make you rich, but the truth can get you killed.

In novels that crackle with wit and suspense, Edgar Award winner Harlan Coben has created one of the most fascinating and complex heroes in suspense fiction—Myron Bolitar—a hotheaded, tenderhearted sports agent who grows more and more engaging and unpredictable with each page-turning appearance.

My Comments:
Yet another in a long list of recommended books from Booklovers Group at Yahoo. And about darn time I picked up the series too! Although it wasn’t as “on the edge of your seat until the last page” as Gone For Good (my first Harlan Coben book that I cannot stop talking about), it was fantastic. I was worried at first that it would be too sports related for me. I’m not a sports person at all and would be totally bored by a lot of references, but if this first book in the series is any indication I was worried for nothing. It’s all about the suspense, baby.

The best part about this book for me was the characters. Myron Bolitar and Win are charming, unpredicitable, sweet and disarming. Oh, and Win is just a wee bit on the hairy scary side as well. I love these guys, and I am really looking forward to more in this series. It was fast paced with snappy dialog that could keep up with the best of them!

Keep It Or Pass It On?
I’m passing it on to my husband. Only because I love him that much!
