In the second Myron Bolitar novel from Edgar Award–winner Harlan Coben, a young woman’s tragic death spirals into a shattering drama of menace, secrets, and rage. Suddenly Myron is in over his head—and playing the most dangerous game of all.

“Engaging . . . hilarious.”—Los Angeles TimesBook Review

Once, Valerie Simpson’s tennis career skyrocketed; now, the headlines belong to a player from the wrong side of the tracks. But when Valerie is shot dead in cold blood and dropped outside the stadium at the U.S. Open, sports agent Myron Bolitar investigates the killing and uncovers a connection between the two players and a six-year-old murder at an exclusive mainline club. As Myron is drawn into the case—along with a dirty U.S. senator, a jealous mother, and the mob—he finds himself caught between a killer and the truth.

“Harlan Coben is the modern master of the hook-and-twist.”—Dan Brown

excellent book about Myron Bollitar who is trying to figure out the murder of a tennis star who was going to be a client. Very good story and mystery - actually didn't figure it out until he did! This is the second in the Myron Bollitar series. Read full review

Excellent! He keeps you guessing. You never know what is going to happen until the end. I am hooked on Harlan Cobens books. I would prefer an edited version though. Read full review
