Book Review – Live Wire

by Harlan Coben (Orion) ISBN 978-1-4091-1253-2

First off, let me admit that I adore Harlan Coben and his books… and this one is no exception.
I feel like I know Myron Bolitar, the quirky sports agent and all-round defender of his clients.  Perhaps because this is the 20th book in the series!

This story takes a very personal look at Myron’s family as his father suffers a severe heart attack and he must find his long lost brother in order to honour his father’s last wish. At the same time, he needs to discover why his client, retired tennis star Suzze T, is being threatened.

As he follows his client’s case and searches for his brother, he uncovers secrets about his client and his family, and is drawn into a web of deceit created by decisions of the past. Certain aspects of the book are slightly fanciful, but in the spirit of the story, I can accept that the gorgeous and proficient multi-billionaire, Win (Windsor Horne Lockwood III) can and will do anything to save his friend Myron.

Like the other books in the series, this is a trip into the world of Bolitar, his family, friends and clients that will keep you turning the page… highly, highly recommended.
