This review is from: One False Move (Hardcover)
`One False Move' is the fifth book in the bestselling series by Harlan Coben and begins when Myron agrees to by a bodyguard of sorts to the hottest young female basketball star, Brenda Slaughter after she had started to receive threatening phone messages and being followed. Also with the disappearance of her father, this forces Myron to look deeper into the Slaughter family history and he finds it goes back to the mysterious death of a local, rich politician's wife 20 years ago.
I've been reading this series in order over the past few months and Coben never fails to impress me with such high quality and enjoyable books as these. Everything about this series is perfect - the characters are all extremely likeable and being just a little over the top makes them that bit more fun, the dialogue is fast and witty and I found myself actually laughing out loud on a number of occasions (as with the others in the series), the story is easy to follow with plenty of twists and excitement and there's always that one last surprise at the end that I never see coming. This book is definitely one of the best of the ones I've read so far - as well as the excellent main storyline that kept me guessing until the end, there's a lot of character development in this one - there's more on Myron and Jessica's relationship, Myron has decisions to make about Esperanza's position at MB Sportsreps and there's some more background in the Bolitar family covered too.
Overall this is another fantastic book that just makes me want to read the rest of the series more and more. This perhaps isn't the best one to start with if you've not read the previous four books as I don't think you'd fully appreciate some of the storyline otherwise, but it still could be read on its own. Myron Bolitar is rapidly becoming one of my favourite fictional characters of all time.
