Publisher's Summary

Mickey Bolitar’s year can’t get much worse. After witnessing his father’s death and sending his mom to rehab, he’s forced to live with his estranged uncle Myron and switch high schools.

A new school comes with new friends and new enemies, and lucky for Mickey, it also comes with a great new girlfriend, Ashley. For a while, it seems like Mickey’s train wreck of a life is finally improving - until Ashley vanishes without a trace. Unwilling to let another person walk out of his life, Mickey follows Ashley’s trail into a seedy underworld that reveals that this seemingly sweet, shy girl isn’t who she claimed to be. And neither was Mickey’s father. Soon, Mickey learns about a conspiracy so shocking that it makes high school drama seem like a luxury - and leaves him questioning everything about the life he thought he knew.

First introduced to readers in Harlan Coben’s latest adult novel, Live Wire, Mickey Bolitar is as quick-witted and clever as his uncle Myron, and eager to go to any length to save the people he cares about.

    "Young Adult"

    Ok, so its called "young adult fiction" and is told in the narrative of a 15/16 year old. I'm 58. Lol, I loved it! Idk if I could read the sequel just yet, but I will some day. (I wish I had been that savvy as a teen--definitely fiction :)). Good plot and story, but for me the magic was in the storytelling. I'm glad I purchased it on audible.

    "Excellent book. worth hearing twice"

    The narrator changes his voice to give one a sense of each character. the story captures your attention and does not let go. I highly recommend it.

    "Couldn't finish"

    I don't understand how anyone over the age of 18 can consider this a great read. This is definitely a book for younger audiences. The voice of "Spoon," who was obviously inserted as comic relief, was so over the top and annoying. It really felt like I was reading a children's book.

    Why can't these stories fulfill all audiences, without these simple-minded, pre-pubescent formulas?

    "Not so much - but great narrator"

    I have to agree more with the guy from Lancaster about this book. Yet I did finish it --

    "Liked it."

    Narrator was good and made the story flow smoothly. The story was simple and entertaining. I like those books that have good mystery , and this was one . I will be listening to another by this author, and hopefully narrator.

    "If your a Mobb Deep fan. this is a must."

    I had a great time listening to this book. especially since Prodigy did the reading himself. If was a very insightful behind the music story of a group that really helped me get thru my teenage years as a young black male in america.
    loved it.

    "Not for Adults"

    This book should be marketed as for teens, or even younger. It is not really a "for adults" book.

    "Good story, frustrating ending"

    This is a lovely story of bravery and courage made small by a ridiculous ending clearly chosen by some idiotic editor.
