The big one and the skinny, older guy. The skinny guy wore long sleeves so Myron could not see if there was a snake tattoo, but the two looked right from Mabel Edwards’s description. hing inside him start to simmer. The big guy was show. Probably a wrestler in high school. Maybe a bouncer at a local bar. He thought he was tough; Myron knew that he would be no problem. The skinny, older guy was hardly a formidable physical specimen. He looked like an aged version of the puny guy who gets the sand kicked on him in the old Charles Atlas cartoon.

Myron Bolitar is one of the most engaging heroes in mystery fiction I previously read one of Harlan Coben's books and was not that impressed for some reason, but something also told me to give him another try and I was certainly glad that I did.

ONE FALSE MOVE by Harlan Coben stars our favorite low-key, laid-back professional sports agent and part-time private eye, Myron Bolitar. Myron, whose mother wanted her son to be a doctor or lawyer like all Jewish moms, lives with his longtime girlfriend and writer, Jessica Culver, who, according to Myron, spends way too much time in California working on movie scripts. Myron and his friend and partner, Windsor Horne Lockwood, “Win,” hookup with Brenda Slaughter the hottest star in women's professional basketball who is also gorgeous and studying to be a pediatrician. Soon their relationship warms up and Myron's commitment to Jessica is put to the test. Brenda's father, Horance, who raised her and was one of Myron's early coaches turns up dead with two bullet holes in his head. Brenda starts receiving threatening phone calls. It is believed this might have something to do with Brenda's mother, Anita, missing for 20 years but who had connections with the very wealthy and politically influential Bradford family. Arthur Bradford is presently running for governor of New Jersey. The story is a delightful thriller packed with romance, fisticuffs and some gunplay and punctuated here and there by a bit of Win's dry humor and creepy antics. I liked the book, I did not care for the ending but I did understand the writer's logic. I give the novel a rating of 4 ½-stars.

This is an intricate mystery, revolving around missing persons, and involving evil rich people, mobsters, corrupt cops, blood-chilling enforcers, and a talented black basketball player named Brenda Slaughter.

Myron becomes Brenda's sports agent and is warned to look out for her, since she's in some sort of danger. The problem is that Myron and Brenda fall in love, despite the fact that Myron has been in love with another woman for years.

So in the midst of a complex investigation that stirs up all sorts of trouble and leaves behind a trail of dead and injured, Myron is struggling with romantic complications.

In this book Myron has started drinking gourmet coffee, after drinking nothing but Yoo-Hoo in the four previous books. Perhaps this sudden leap of sophistication is a tip off that his emotional life is about to become more complex, with some innocence lost along the way.

But don't worry, there's still plenty of humor in these pages, lots of goofy quips from Myron and funny scenes with insincere politicians. And Myron's friend, aristocratic Win, continues to be Myron's loyal and deadly supporter in violent confrontations with bad guys and other aggressors. And there are tense scenes of violence aplenty.

All in all, One False Move is up to the usual high standards of this series, with a new element of poignancy mixed in. Highly recommended, but do read the earlier books first.

I previously read one of Harlan Coben's books and was not that impressed for some reason, but something also told me to give him another try and I was certainly glad that I did. Harlan Coben is clearly one of the top tier/premier mystery writers for several reasons which are evident in this book as well as all of his Myron Bolitar books. Firstly, his style of writing makes the reading flow - it is not at all tedious. Secondly, his plots are intricate and interesting without being overly complex or bewildering. Thirdly, his characters are highly entertaining - Myron Bolitar is the sports rep/investigator/detective, and Win (Windsor Horne Lockwood III - for those who are into formalities) is the muscle - Win is incredibly wealthy, is not overtly threatening due to the fact that he is only five feet ten inches or thereabout, very fastidious and preppy in his appearance, but he is totally lethal - he lives in a world of black and white, no gray areas, and when warranted, acts first and asks questions or contemplates later - if ever. Myron and Win are very similar to Spenser and Hawk of Robert B. Parker as well as Elvis Cole and Joe Pike of Robert Crais. Very much like Spenser and Hawk, the repartee between Myron and Win is very entertaining. This book, in particular, also had a very intricate plot where you do not really know the killer until very near the end. Highly recommended.
