I like the appeal of the type of hero cast in Myron. Complex, conflicted, but strong of purpose and a web of supporting characters that are also admirable. I like Harlan Coben anyway for a great read, but am especially looking forward to more stories that include Myron.
I really enjoyed the story and liked the narration. This was my first Coben book. I definately want to read more Myron. The writing is witty and had me laughing. I didn't like the ending though. It seems as if there are a few better ones out there.
I didn't expect much from this book but it was surprisingly ineteresting, humorous and entertaining.
The main character is a lot of fun. The plot is well thought out. If you are a fan of mysteries with interesting characters this book is a good choice.

The story itself was good, but it read (sounded) like a B-movie, due to being an older book. Also, and this is my own personal preference, it contained entirely too much offensive language, and sexual content. Not necessarily sex scenes, just content. There was at least one scene, but I've learned to fast forward through them. Definitely not a book to be listened to in family time. I had listened to a Harlan Coben book some years ago, but didn't remember it containing such constant bad language, or I probably would not have bought this book. I will buy the second in the series, because the story was good, but I am hoping the future ones are less explicit with the language. Hopefully, this one was due to the time period in which it was written. The narrator was just okay. Sometimes, I find one so great that I search out other books narrated by him/her. Sometimes, I find one so bad that I avoid other books narrated by him/her. I'll do neither with this narrator.
In my humble opinion Harlan Coben had better time available while writing his old books and therefore did a better job than he does in later days.
One very important part of Deal Breaker is copied to his (so far 2015) latest book The Stranger.
In Coben's earlier writing times he had to do a good job to become what he is today.
It was just as expected, action and great entertainment from the very beginning.
Harlan Coben is one of my favorite authors, why I'm probably giving him too many stars from time to time.
I began this book because my wife raved about this series, and she never raves about anything--including about me. The story line is completely ridiculous except it draws you in immediately and entertains with every word written. This book will put the reader/listener in a great mood. Also, it is a terrific murder mystery, that has wonderful plot twists.
I have read -- ah, listened -- to all of the books in this series, and this first one will leave you wanting to do the same. Interesting, lovable characters...witty and smart...and a good mystery to boot. Narration is outstanding.
