Publisher Comments:

His heart is broken. His partner is in jail. And someone is trying to kill him.

Then Myron Bolitar gets some really bad news....

For sports agent Myron Bolitar, it seemed like the perfect vacation. A tropical beach. A warm breeze. A little uncomplicated passion with a woman he barely knows. Myron is almost in heaven when his friend Win shows up with a message that blasts him back to reality: Esperanza is in trouble. It's time to come home.

Now Myron is back in New York, determined to help Esperanza, his best friend and partner, who's been accused of killing one of their clients. But Esperanza isn't talking. Neither is her lawyer. And to prove his friend's innocence, Myron must trace the rise and fall of the victim, a pitcher who had been making a comeback with the Yankees. Suddenly the investigation is leading Myron to places he'd rather not go: into a family's agony, through the city's sexual underground, and to a moment buried on the dark side of a brilliant sports career....Twelve years ago a young agent named Bolitar tried to help an up-and-coming athlete. It was a fatal mistake — and now Myron will have to pay the price...

Review:

"Superb...a twisty tale that continues to surprise as it entertains...Coben delivers his most complex and ambitious novel, with a plot that is in perpetual motion...he keeps the suspense high." Chicago Tribune

Review:

"Hilarious...unpredictable...a startling climax.....I couldn't imagine a more appealing sports agent than Tom Cruise's Jerry Maguire until I read Harlan Coben's The Final Detail, which features the endearingly neurotic Myron Bolitar. Coben (who gets craftier and funnier with each outing) has written the most personable and involving whodunit I've read all year." Los Angeles Times

Review:

"It's great stuff." Houston Chronicle

Review:

"The world needs to discover Harlan Coben. He's smart, he's funny and he has something to say." Michael Connelly

Review:

"Combines Chandler's wry wit with Ross Macdonald's moral complexity." The Philadelphia Inquirer

Review:

"If you've been entertaining doubts about the future of the mystery — fuhgeddaboutit! It's in good hands with Harlan Coben." Lawrence Block

Review:

"Coben displays all the right moves...snappy dialogue, fast pacing, neat plotting....Myron's some serious competition for Robert Parker's Spenser." The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Synopsis:

Some would say that Clu Haid had it coming. The fallen baseball star was spiraling down a path that ultimately led to his murder. Haid's agent, Myron Bolitar, is hit twice as hard by the news when he discovers that the prime suspect in the murder is his business partner and best friend, Esperanza. To uncover the truth behind his client's death and clear Esperanza's name, Bolitar sprints into his most bizarre case yet that involves a Yankees owner with a long-lost daughter, a transsexual nightclub, a mysterious computer disc, and a mind-boggling murder scene.
