Publisher's Summary

Tennis has been very good to sports agent Myron Bolitar. He represents two of the hottest young stars in the game. But when his female player is murdered in broad daylight at the U.S. Open and his male player becomes the prime suspect, Myron's got a whole new match to win. His investigation leads to an old murder, the mob, a crooked senator, a jealous mother, and someone who's determined to shut down his search for good.

In novels that crackle with wit and suspense, Edgar Award-winner Harlan Coben has created one of the most fascinating and complex heroes in suspense fiction, a hot-headed, tender-hearted sports agent who grows more and more engaging and unpredictable with each page-turning appearance.

Critic Reviews

"The prose is lean, the story moves briskly, and the dialogue crackles...great fun in the best 'hard-boiled' tradition." (Houston Chronicle)

Funny, Intriguing, and Engaging

My favorite Coben book yet. Myron and Wynn are at their funniest, the tennis scene makes a nice backdrop, and the mystery keeps you guessing. The author does an excellent job as usual. I really enjoyed listening to this book.

Whoa! Kew-el Kickoff. Myron Bolitar! Yea!

Terrific ensemble cast. Perfect read. quick plot. Start with this... then get the next. I will... Check the next review... Hope it's as strong as this one. BTW. Bolitar is a sports agent. I am not a strong sports. fan. I mean I'm a man in America so I like some games, but not an addict. Thought I'd be left out. Wasn't. The sports world is to this novel as a hot arrangement is to a great melody. It makes the whole thing work. If this was an introductory novel... Let me repeat... Whoa!

i liked it

When I first started this book, I did not think I would like it. The tennis thing was weird, since I have no interest in it. The story took off though. I laughed out loud in several places and I really liked the dry voice of the narrator, he added to the story. I am going to continue listening to this series as opposed to reading the books.

Extremely disappointing

I have read many of this author’s books and have always enjoyed them. This book was not enjoyable whatsoever. It was shorter than the others, and I found the storyline and characters pretty boring. The book was made even worse by the tired, unimaginative and cliché ethnic stereotypes. Simply a waste of time.

A bit predictable

This one was a bit predictable. The narration is like an old PI movie, not very good on the female voices, but it is over 10 yrs old (the audible version)
