4 Myron Bolitar Series

Oct 12, 2020

This is part of Harlan Coben's always entertaining Myron Bolitar mystery series. This time out, Myron is called upon to investigate the kidnapping of a pro golfer's 16-year-old son, which he does with the help of his reluctant (this time) associate, Win. There are red herrings galore in this nicely plotted story, and as usual, Myron's stories, as well as his interaction with regulars Win and Esperanza are great fun to read. The other significant characters - the boy's parents, friends, and even the bad guys, are all interesting, fully developed characters. Philadelphia natives, like me, may be annoyed at a couple of local geographical errors (Lower Merion is not near South Philly - harrumph!), but that's nit-picking. You do not need to have read any of the earlier Bolitar novels to enjoy this one. So go enjoy it!

#4 in Myron Bolitar series

Apr 02, 2013

This is a very, very funny mystery... be prepared to laugh out loud! The complex plot is unravelled slowly and in an understandable manner. The main character, Myron Bolitar, is hilariously irreverent in this book, but more so in his thoughts than previous books... thankfully, we're privy to those thoughts! I'd put Harlan Coben in the same company as Michael Connelly and Robert Crais when it comes to rich deep characterizations. Highly recommended.
