Publisher's Summary

Brady helps a troubled ex-jock through a nasty divorce case. As a power forward for the Detroit Pistons, Mick Fallon distinguished himself with an unerring ability to hit late-game free throws. Years after his retirement, the passion and focus he once put into basketball have been repurposed for something less admirable: gambling.

A secret, crippling addiction has emptied Mick’s savings, ruined his marriage, and may be threatening his life. When his wife demands a divorce, Mick turns to Brady Coyne - a lawyer with ethics - with a seemingly simple case that turns out to be one of the nastiest this Boston attorney has ever encountered.

Mick doesn’t want a divorce - he wants his wife back. When she is found savagely murdered in her living room, Mick is the natural suspect, but he has disappeared. To prove his client’s innocence, and save his own life, Brady must learn something every ballplayer understands: To survive, you have to know how to hustle.

    "Review from a binge listener"
    Where does Muscle Memory rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Fair to middling. I found myself wanting to keep listening and I am eager to hear the next one. At the same time, there are some aspects of Tapply's style of story-telling that irritate me.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I think I like Brady's secretary Julie best, though she doesn't appear much in this book.


    Any additional comments?

    I have just binge-listened to all the Coyne books to this point. Obviously I find them compelling. Though it is kind of in a "I keep eating peanuts" kind of way. I prefer Robert Parker and his Spenser and also Phillip Craig and his JW. Tapply has some good elements that remind me of each of those writers. I know Tapply purposely chose to keep Brady romantically footloose from an interview I read years ago. The women therefore end up a bit like Bond women. Also, like any series about an accidental/amateur detective, the writer has to keep coming up with reasons and ways to explain the main character's repeated involvement in solving crimes/mysteries. And the other characters have to keep complaining about it or warning them or whatever. And then the main character starts to seem like a jerk for ignoring them and they start to seem like nags. All that said, I am hoping that audible will soon have the rest of the series so I can binge some more. (Would also love to see/hear the Phillip Craig series and the Brady/JW books too!)
