Book Description

6 Mar 2007 Myron Bolitar Mysteries
The home was top-notch New Jersey suburban.  The living room was Martha Stewart.  The basement was Legos--and blood.  For sports agent Myron Bolitar, the disappearance of a man he'd once competed against was bringing back memories--of the sport he and Greg Downing had both played and the woman they both loved.  Now, among the stars, the wanna-bes, the gamblers and groupies, Myron is unraveling the strange, violent life of a sports hero gone wrong, and coming face-to-face with a past he can't relive, and a present he may not survive.

In stories 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 appearance.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great mystery featuring Myron Bolitar 20 Nov 2001
By A Customer
When Myron Bolitar, a sports rep and one time first round draft to the NBA, is signed on by the New Jersey Dragons it isn't so that he can make a comeback. In fact, Bolitar has been signed to track down his team mate and former arch-rival Greg Downing. What he doesn't know when he accepts the job is that far from being a simple missing persons case, this becomes a murder hunt. But, who is the victim, who killed her, what is their motive and, why is someone attempting to blackmail not only Greg, and the team but also Myron himself?
Full of twists and turns the third book in Harlan Coben's Myron Bolitar series is also full of the usual witty dialogue. Although Myron is of course the protagonist in this story numerous appearances are made by other familiar characters, Jessica, Esperanza, Big Cyndi, Myron's parents and of course Win, and it's great to follow what's going on with them. Don't think that you have to have read the earlier Bolitar books to get into this though, it's a great stand alone novel but once you've read it I wouldn't be surprised if you wanted to read the rest.
I initially bought this book to pass time on a train journey but still found myself reading it that evening long after I was home and I finished it the following day. I would recommend this to anyone who likes a good mystery novel. If you're new to Coben I'd say read these great books and then don't miss his great thriller Tell No One.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Bolitar book yet? 23 July 2001
I have now read 4 of the Myron Bolitar series of books and I rate this one as the best. The story keeps you guessing until the last few pages and then - POW - a different twist and turn in every paragraph! Very clever story - I would recommend it to anyone...

5.0 out of 5 stars Ghosts of the past 5 July 2012
My 2nd Coben book and now that I am firmly attuned with the characters of Bolitar and Win, I found Fade Away a breeze of a story to jump straight into. The story gives some insight into Bolitar's past as a pro basketball player before injury cut him down in his prime. The premise of the story is that a renowned basketball player (Greg Downing) has gone missing, who was a friend but also a rival to Bolitar both as a player and for the affections of a woman. Bolitar had lost out on both counts. The boss of Downing's team wants Bolitar to find his missing man, sensing a whiff of scandal if the news becomes public as Downing was a man in debt and with a broken marriage. Bolitar goes undercover with the basketball team and slowly unravels the shocking truth through a twisted web of subversion and blackmail that brings revelation and closure on events in his own past - events that he had pushed to the back of his mind, until now.

5.0 out of 5 stars First Time Harlan Coben Reader 11 Mar 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
Looking for a great read? Look no further! This is the first book I've read from Harlan and am somewhat hooked now. I bought this book for reading on holiday where you would pick it up and put down in-between other activities............how wrong can you be! How many books have made you laugh out loud? Not many I'd bet. The spoken word and the thoughts of the main character will have you sporadically throughout the book at the very least, inwardly laughing. Aside from the humour the main characters Myron, Win and Esperanza have a relationship akin to siblings. The story is (in my opinion) intriguing directly from the first few pages and does not suffer from the inconsequential fringe characters which make some books difficult to follow (either that or Harlan makes each character so interesting you remember exactly who's who) The plot is pleasantly easy to follow, however I guarantee you will be constantly, up to the final few pages of the book changing your mind as to whom the guilty party is.
Update: Just read the second book by Harlan (Back Spin) which is every bit as good as the above

3.0 out of 5 stars Answers unanswered questions 25 Nov 2010
This is the third novel in the Myron Bolitar series and instead of hinting at the Myron's past this book really seems to answer the questions. This book has the normal mix of detective novel with the occasionally one liner to make you laugh. However as well as being a good detective novel the past is revisited for Myron when he is asked to play basketball again. This allows the author to in depth go into what has happened in Myron's past the breakdown in his relationship on the first occasion to Jessica and other half answered questions in previous books. This is an excellent quick page turner that keeps you enthralled throughout. Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pleasantly surprised 17 Jan 2006
Having not been very impressed with the previous "Myron Bolitar" novel I read, I wasnt sure if buying another one was going to be a good move.
Fortunately my fears were unfounded as this was a cracking read as Myron goes undercover in a basketball team to find a missing player.
Still not as good as his non Bolitar books but still highly recommended
