Page Turner! Once I started it, I couldn't put it down. I look forward to reading more in the series.

Great story, full of twists all the way to the end. Couldn't put it down until I finished the whole thing. Coben does it best with just the right amount of suspense and humor.

This book has some continuity with the Coben book that follows it called "The Final Detail". It's not necessary to read One False Move first in order to enjoy the other one, but it would, let's say, "enhance the experience".

I found Harlan Coben just last year and have read every single book he has on the market. I love his writing and the way he builds his characters. It is an absolute pleasure to read his books in order and see their progression.

originally I thought the sports aspect would be a turn-off for me, but it has so little to do with the story that it didn't bother me at all.

If you're looking for a quick, good, fun read, this is the book for you.

Norm Zuckerman asks Myron Bolitar to be a bodyguard to star basketball player Brenda Slaughter. Brenda's father Horace, a mentor to Myron when he was a kid, has disappeared. Brenda has been receiving threatening calls and is being followed. One caller told her to contact her mother. That's not easy to do since her mother disappeared when she was a child. When Myron starts investigating Horace Slaughter's disappearance and the 20 year old disappearance of Anita Slaughter, he finds there are many people who don't want the truth to come out.

This is the fifth Myron Bolitar mystery. It has a more serious tone than the previous books in the series. Myron starts rethinking his personal life with Jessica. It doesn't help their relationship when right away Myron and Brenda are striking sparks off of each other. He is also given an ultimatum from Esperanza...make her a partner in MB Sports or she walks. The mystery is very well written. Some things that are just mentioned in passing turn out to be big clues. My rating: 5 Stars.

The suspense and drama in Coben's books amaze me. He has such a great way of involving so many characters and tying it all together in the end.

One of the best Harlan Coben, Myron Bolitar books! Myron agrees to protect a basketball star, Brenda Slaughter, but then learns that her father is missing, her mother left her mysteriouly when she was 5, and someone is threatening her. Of course Byron has Win there to help him but trying to determine why all this happened brings Myron very close to dealing with his own possible death. Don't miss this one?
