Comments  Summary  Reviews  Author Notes

From Publishers' Weekly:

Myron Bolitar takes on international terrorists in bestseller Coben's fast-paced ninth thriller to feature the sports and entertainment agent (after Promise Me). With his romantic relationship with 9/11 widow Ali Wilder on the rocks, Myron is free at a moment's notice to accept the invitation of his former lover, Terese Collins, a TV newswoman who dropped out of his life years earlier, to join her in Paris. There Terese tells Myron her investigative reporter ex-husband, Rick, whom Myron never knew about, recently got back in touch with her and hinted at an earthshaking revelation. Rick's murder plunges Bolitar into a frenzied, often violent chase across Europe in an effort to learn Rick's secret. Aided by his upper-class sidekick and bodyguard, Win, Bolitar builds up an impressive body count as he attempts to prove he didn't kill Rick-and foil a terrorist plot that's as imaginative as it is preposterous. Bolitar fans will cheer their hero every step of the way. (Apr.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved

From Library Journal:

After three years, Coben (Hold Tight) returns to basketball star-turned-sports agent-turned-sleuth Myron Bolitar, while retaining a good deal of the twists and turns found in his stand-alone thrillers. An unexpected phone call from an old flame, Terese, brings Myron to Paris to help her unravel a mystery involving her ex-husband. Turns out that the CIA, Terese's long-dead daughter, an antiabortion group, a stem cell clinic, and-oh, yeah-al-Qaeda are also involved. In a lesser writer's hands, this could have been ridiculous, but Coben is the master of taking impossible, even outlandish situations and somehow making them realistic. This is sure to please both Bolitar fans and those who have only read Coben's roller coaster-ride thrillers. Bolitar and his quirky series cohorts are fully introduced, allowing newcomers a seamless entry. Highly recommended for all popular fiction collections.-Rebecca Vnuk, Glen Ellyn P.L., IL (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
