Publisher Comments:

The Edgar and Shamus Award-winning, Anthony Award-nominated novel that put Coben in the ranks of Robert Parker and Carl Hiassen. When Myron is hired to find a vanished NBA player, he is forced to reckon with his own unresolved past as a basketball prodigy as he takes a trip through the underbelly of the 90s sports world — where a missing superstar and an unbearable truth wait at the final buzzer. Sharp and superior, with driving dialogue, this novel sets Coben above the crowd.

Once Myron Bolitar was the best. Then an injury sent him to law school and on to a second career as a big-time sports agent — a career fueled by savvy, Yoo-Hoo, and an athlete's broken heart. Now Myron's getting the one chance he hever dared dream of: to shoot hoops again for money. But the NBA's New Jersey Dragons want Myron for more than his jump shot.

The Dragon star, Greg Downing, has vanished, and Myron has the history and know-how to find him. When Myron investigates, thegame turns brutal. Greg has disappeared in a flurry of spilled secrest and spilled blood.

From the groupies to the gamblers, from the 60s gang of radicals to a woman reporter who's making the news, Myron is on a trip though the underbelly of the 90s sports world — where a missing superstar and an unbearable truth wait for the final buzzer.

Synopsis:

The home was top-notch New Jersey suburban. The living room was Martha Stewart. The basement was Legosand blood. For sports agent Myron Bolitar, the disappearance of a man he'd once competed against was bringing back memoriesof the sport he and Greg Downing had both played and the woman they both loved. Now, among the stars, the wanna-bes, the gamblers and groupies, Myron is unraveling the strange, violent life of a sports hero gone wrong, and coming face-to-face with a past he can't relive, and a present he may not survive.

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 fictionMyron Bolitara hotheaded, tenderhearted sports agent who grows more and more engaging and unpredictable with each page-turning appearance.
