Publisher's Summary

Harlan Coben has risen to the top of best-seller lists worldwide, attracting voracious audiences for his peerless novels of domestic suspense as well as those featuring his fan-favorite sports agent, Myron Bolitar. Now in Live Wire, he offers a knock-your-socks-off novel that will electrify all his fans: Myron’s family takes center stage.

Myron Bolitar has always dreamed about the voluptuous femme fatale walking into his office and asking for help. The woman standing in his doorway has killer curves all right: She’s eight months pregnant, which kind of ruins the fantasy. Former tennis star Suzze T and her rock star husband, Lex, are both clients, and over the years Myron has negotiated his share of contracts for the power pair. But now Lex has disappeared and a very pregnant Suzze is in tears, fearing the online rumors questioning the baby’s paternity have driven away the man she swears is the child’s father.

For Myron, questions of fatherhood couldn’t hit closer to home, as his dad, Al, clings to life; the brother who abandoned them all years ago is in trouble; and Myron’s teenage nephew needs an authority figure. Myron is soon forced to confront deep secrets in Suzze’s past; his family’s mortality - and before Live Wire is over, his own.

Listen to another Myron Bolitar novel.

    "Myron and Win -- a winning combination"

    Harlen Coben brings an intriguing plot to every book he writes. This one is a standout because of the characters. He includes the usual suspects from Big Cindy to Win, but introduces new characters that come alive within a few pages.

    "Excellent book Great Narrator"

    Very engaging and well executed story. Great performance from the narrator. The only additional comment would be this book left me want Coban to write a book about Win Exclusive of the Bolitar series. I think this would make a very interesting study in a human mind. Also the action could be amazing.

    "Not his very best but good"

    I like the Myron Bolitar series. The characters are off the wall, but endearing. This particular book as one other person said leaves an ending that will start a young adult trilogy. Quite by accident I listened to the trilogy first, so I know the entire story of Brad. I am a senior citizen and didn't realize that the book Shelter was a young adult book until I got into it. Let me just say that this YA trilogy is awesome!! I couldn't wait to get to the next one and bought all of them for my teenage grandkids. The characters in the Mickey series are very quirky and you will love them. I also just finished another Myron Bolitar book called Home. It was fabulous and incorporated Mickey and his pals . I would suggest that you read the trilogy first so you understand Ema, Mickey's best friend.

    "Don't Waste A Credit !!!"
    What disappointed you about Live Wire?

    Oh - where to begin - the first hour ?? This is a typical cut and paste from Chapter 1 to the end - characters from every "Myron Bolitar" book Harlan Coben has written - none of whom have improved with age - asking the same questions - repeating the same silly responses - so for me the entire experience was disappointing !!


    What could Harlan Coben have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Nothing.


    What didn’t you like about Steven Weber’s performance?

    It was difficult to tell one character's voice from another - even the women sounded like men.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Live Wire?

    If this book had an "editor" he or she should have advised against publishing it.


    Any additional comments?

    Forget this one !!!

    "I'm Involved Now"

    My second Myron book (my first was the latest, "Home") and I can't wait to go backwards, reading the first 19...or 15.... Always been a big fan of Mr Coben's thrillers, but was never introduced to Myron.
    Steven Webber does a fantastic job as narrator and has made the introductions to Myron and his family & friends engaging.

    "Myron Bolitar"

    I enjoy Harlen Coben’s books, but I’m in the minority in that I’m not a fan of Myron Bolitar.
    I just can’t muster much interest in the world of self destructive, self important sports and entertainment superstars, and I find Myron far too smug for my tastes. He looks down his nose at almost everyone for having less integrity than he has.

    The “incident” that kicks off the big investigation: an anonymous rude comment on celebrity’s Facebook. Really? The twists and connections are unexpected, but also pretty far fetched.

    I think I’ll try another stand alone book, or another Mickey Bolitar. But probably not another Myron.
    2.5 stars

    "Favorite duo of all-time"

    Glad to have Myron & Winn back. All time favorites. Well-written and well-performed. Classic Coben. Fast-moving but plausible - but not too outlandish, as several other Coben books.
