I am in danger of developing an addiction to Harlan Coben’s mysteries. It started with Deal Breaker, the first in the Myron Bolitar series. I could not put it down, faithful readers. I think I read it in a day.
Recently, I picked up two more Coben books.
The first is another in the Bolitar series, Fade Away. This time, sports agent Myron Bolitar finds himself joining the New Jersey Dragons professional basketball team, despite his advanced age of 32. But alas for Myron, he isn’t signed because of his hardcourt prowess, but rather because the team’s owner needs his help. It turns out that star player Greg Downing has disappeared, and Myron needs to find him. There are plot twists that make sense, a little romance, and a mystery that keeps you turning the pages.
Equally as impressive is Tell No One. This, like The Innocent, is not part of the Myron Bolitar series. This time the focus is on Dr. David Beck, whose wife apparently died eight years ago. But he gets an email that makes him question all that he was led to believe. Again, Harlan Coben sends you on a merry chase, some of which you might see coming. What separates this from lesser mysteries, however, is that even when you think you can predict the twist, you cannot predict how it will play out. Another fun, great read.
