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.

I bought this book because it was Harlan Coben. I have never read any of his Bolitar series. It is written more to a younger crowed, but I did enjoy it.
Ok, I admit it. I cried at the end. Narrator was good (finally). Story moved along well. The reveal in the epilog was fairly obvious. BUT worst thing, this is the last one? I want to know what happens to these people.
It fit the book like a glove.
Totally captured my attention.
For those of us who love Harlan Corbin and his sports agent books, you should love this one. Not only does it have the usual surprises but we find much personal information about his family and discover a giant surprise decision near the end. I found it to be like his other books and yet different ( in a good way) all at the same time. Do yourself a favor and get lost in Live Wire!!!
I am enjoying the Harlan Coben books on audio. It allows me to drown out everything around me - generally that means airport noise! Listening to the words allows your imagination to portray each and every character. Of course I love Myron, but he really brings to life each and every individual. Absolute recommendation!
I love Myron Bolitar, and Wynn, Esperanza and Big Cindy. These stories have captured and provided hours of entertainment for me. I know that all good things must come to an end, but I hate the thought of these wonderful, richly developed characters fading into oblivion.
none were portrayed as well as Jonathan Marosz, but adequate. Myron especially, took some time getting used to, but the others were fine.
As usual the book gets your attention quickly and Harlan writes such tight stories that it spoils other writers books. Can't put it down until your done.
This was the worst of all the Myron Bolitar books as it was not believable to suddenly introduce an estranged brother after 9 other books. Also the reader was not near as good as Jonathan Marosz. This reader made everyone sound gay. Really dissappointed.
I've enjoyed Coben's Myron Bolitar series over the years and was excited to see a new installment. I'd rate Live Wire as O.K. (3 out of 5). Not as good as previous works -- saw predictable ending coming about an hour into the book. I also don't think that Weber's voice is a good match for Myron. Myron's a big dude (6'4")...a jock. Weber tries hard, but his Myron is flinty.
The tenth Myron Bolitar and it is great! Steven Weber is an extraordinary narrator. The combination can't be beat. Be sure to get the unabridged version. Each subplot is fascinating on its own.
I understand Harlan Coben is a good mystery writer. Maybe not my kind of mystery writer. I found the people silly, the plot unbelievable (except as lived out by these silly people, perhaps) and the dialogue predictable. You can poke a hole through any one of the characters by looking at him. I really wanted to find a good writer to follow, but perhaps I picked the wrong book.
