Book Description

Helping a friend may turn out to be deadly serious... A terrific Myron Bolitar novel from the SUNDAY TIMES bestselling author of SIX YEARS.

Myron screwed up. His job was to protect someone. He fell in love with that someone and then she died. End of story.

So he's dropped out, left, run away to the Caribbean to escape his guilt. But now everything that he left behind has come back to haunt him. A friend is in trouble, murder trouble. The victim? One of his own clients.

In order to help his friend, Myron must battle for her freedom - against her own wishes...

    Product Description


    "Coben produces his usual mix of hard-boiled crime and wise-guy humour... with Bolitar, it's the mayhem that keeps the pages turning." (Andrea Henry DAILY MIRROR, 17 December)

    "Just an everyday tale of normal law-abiding, cross-dressing psychotic New Yorkers." (THE GUARDIAN 'Digested Read', 3 January 05)

    "An outstanding success. This is a grand, rollicking read full of refreshing, new-style writing, snappy one-liners and clever repartee. In terms of plot, Coben cannot be faulted. You might fail to spot whodunit and, when all is revealed, feel genuine surprise and deight. If you read only one American novel this year, make sure that it is this one." (SUNDAY EXPRESS, 20 Feb)

    "Coben handles a large cast with skill. Entertaining" (Philip Nolan IRELAND ON SUNDAY, 23 Jan)

    "Coben, as ever, takes us on a gritty, pungent journey into some of the less savoury byways of human behaviour; a journey shot through with sardonic humour and trenchant observation." (Barry Forshaw THE INDEPENDENT, 14 Feb)

    "Another hit." (Alex Gordon PETERBOROUGH EVENING TELEGRAPH, 15 Jan)

    Philip Nolan, IRELAND ON SUNDAY, 23 Jan

    "Coben handles a large cast with skill. Entertaining"

    4.0 out of 5 stars Top notch page turner 11 Mar. 2004
    Format:Unknown Binding|Verified Purchase
    Myron returns from a break to find his partner Esperanza has been arrested for the murder of one of their clients. No-one will tell Myron and Win what is going on and their investigations take them to some unexpected places and into areas no-one wants them to go.
    If you like the author and/or the Bolitar stories then you will love this. It has all the elements of plot twists, wit and character inter-play that we have come to expect and it all hangs together very well. Interestingly Coben has, in places, introduced a couple of subtle changes to his narrative. There are some slightly darker aspects to this one and there are times where he puts humour directly into the narrative rather then into the things his characters say but it does work well.
    It is all here, the wit, the banter, the twists and the way it all comes together neatly in the end.
    Very enjoyable.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable but slightly disappointing 2 Mar. 2007
    By Net
    This was my first book by this author so I had no idea what to expect. On the whole it was a good read. The style of writing was witty, fresh and very entertaining. I liked the fact that the main character was emotionally vulnerable; in so many books the 'hero' is hard as nails, nothing gets to them, so I found it refreshing that Myron wasn't portrayed in this way. I also really liked his sidekick Win and the rapport between those characters. Win's attitude and philosophy of life did make me smile; he is a great complementary character.

    I was all set to give this book 4 stars but the ending just didn't grab me. I felt after such a great build up it ended rather flat. I would definitely read more of HC's stuff although I did feel a little disadvantaged not reading the previous MB books.

    4.0 out of 5 stars The Final Detail 30 Jan. 2006
    Format:Unknown Binding
    “The Final Detail” is the 6th book in Harlan Coben’s series of novels featuring the sports agent Myron Bolitar. This time Myron finds that it’s not really himself that’s in trouble now, but rather his sports agency partner and ex-wrestler Esperanza Diaz who has fallen foul of the law.
    One of Myron’s clients, baseball pitcher Clu Haid, has been found shot and circumstantial evidence all points towards Esperanza. Mryon, who was out of the country when the crime happened, feels a surge of guilt that he wasn’t there to help his friend Likewise Esperanza’s friend and former wrestling tag-team partner Big Cyndi seems determined to throw all her weight (and that’s a lot) behind getting Esperanza released.
    As Mryon starts to dig into the case he realises that it could well have been him to be facing the charges and when Esperanza won’t co-operate with him, Myron beings to wonder if there’s something deeper going on. A run with nasty piece of work, FB Junior, (who we’ve previously met), the owners of the New York Yankees baseball team and a trio of drag wearing hit men convinces Myron that Esperanza is not only in great danger but is being set up to take the blame for the crime. Luckily for Myron he can still rely on Win to protect him and watch his back.
    Fans of the Myron series won’t be too surprised to find this another solid and entertaining addition to the sequence. Both Myron and Win are on top form in the wise cracking stakes and the continuity of characters is a nice thing for any series.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Warning - Not a new book 18 Jan. 2005
    Format:Unknown Binding
    Fantastic book. Love all of Coben's books, particularly the Myron series. Was thrilled to see this one appear, then mightily disappointed to realise it is a re-issue of a previous book! I had already read it and nearly bought it again, so beware. However, if you have never read a Coben book, log on now and buy the lot, you won't regret it. (I sound like his agent :-)) )

    4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but not the best. 25 Nov. 2001
    By A Customer
    Myron Bolitar has messed up and run away to the Caribbean to try and escape his guilt. He told no one where he was going but three weeks later Win has tracked him down and Myron realises that this can only mean one thing, trouble.
    Esperanza, Myron's close friend and business partner has been arrested for murder and she's refusing to talk to anyone but her lawyer. Convinced that no matter what the evidence seems to point to Esperanza is not a murderer, Myron is determined to prove her innocence even if she doesn't want him to get involved. But the more Myron discovers about the crime, the more questions he has. Who killed Clu Haid? What is Esperanza keeping from him? And what is the connection to Lucy Mayor the missing daughter of the billionaire owner of the New York Yankees?
    In this sixth Myron Bolitar mystery, all the usual characters put in an appearance, fans of Big Cyndi will be able to get to know her a little better, and there's the usual witty dialogue between Myron and Win all of which makes reading this novel like putting on a pair of comfy slippers or talking to an old friend.
    This novel would probably have got a five star rating from me but I can't help but compare it to the other Bolitar novels, some of which I thought were fantastic. In my opinion, this is good but no quite so good. Nevertheless, this is a great read which I would recommend.
