Publisher Comments:

The #1 New York Times bestseller Harlan Coben returns, with a Myron Bolitar thriller unlike any other.

Harlan Coben has risen to the top of bestseller lists worldwide, attracting voracious audiences for his peerless novels of domestic suspense as well as those featuring his fan-favorite sports agent, Myron Bolitar. Now, in Live Wire, he offers a knock-your-socks- off novel that will electrify all his fans: Myron's family takes center stage.

Myron Bolitar has always dreamed about the voluptuous femme fatale walking into his office and asking for help. The woman standing in his doorway has killer curves, all right: She's eight months pregnant, which kind of ruins the fantasy. Former tennis star Suzze T and her rock star husband, Lex, are both clients, and over the years Myron has negotiated his share of contracts for the power pair. But now Lex has disappeared and a very pregnant Suzze is in tears, fearing the online rumors questioning the baby's paternity have driven away the man she swears is the child's father.

For Myron, questions of fatherhood couldn't hit closer to home, as his dad, Al, clings to life, and the brother who abandoned the family years ago resurfaces-with danger following close behind. Myron is soon forced to confront deep secrets in Suzze's past, his family's mortality-and before Live Wire is over, his own.

Synopsis:

When Myron Bolitar gets involved in the family drama of his former tennis star client and her rock star husband, he discovers secrets about his own family, specifically his brother, who abandoned the Bolitars long ago. As Myron races to locate his missing brother while their father clings to life, he must face the lies that led to their estrangement-including the ones told by Myron himself.

This is the tenth and what may be the last in the Myron Bolitar series It is also, in my opinion, the best in the series. While I value his stand alone novels more than his series work, this volume comes closest to matching the stand alones.

The book opens with the statement, "The ugliest truth, a friend once told Myron, is still better than the prettiest of lies." The succeeding story proves the accuracy of that statement as lies lead to people dying because of them.

All the usual memorable characters are here: Myron Bolitar ex basketball star and current sports and talent manager, Win Lockwood III, best friend and protector, Esperanza Diaz, business partner and ex-professional wrestler and Big Cindi, receptionist and Esperanza's wrestling partner. There's a certain bittersweet aura as these characters have aged and matured.

The story opens as two of Myron’s clients: Suzze T, retired tennis pro and Lex Ryder, Suzze’s husband and member of the legendary rock band HorsePower are driven apart by an anonymous Facebook posting. As the plot unfolds Kitty Bolitar, wife of Myron's estranged brother Brad shows up with his nephew, Mickey, whom he has never met. The problems of Myron's clients also involve Al and Ellen, Myron's parents.

Without going into excruciating detail, the twists and turns, the relationships, the minor characters and all the complications brought on by the lies of the past make a compelling story that is impossible to put down. I pretty much read the whole book on a cross country flight. I never guessed how things would play out but in the end all becomes clear and eventually makes complete, though poignant, sense.

If I'm right and this is the last of the series, it couldn't have ended on a better note. I doubt if this is the end of Coben's literary efforts, however. I believe he's already published a juvenile novel with Myron's nephew Mickey as the protagonist. I hope one of his stand alone gems will appear soon.
