By Harlan Coben
I’d say this is a mediocre attempt of Coben.
The plot is not as gripping as his first book.
Myron Bolitar, shown in a sad/dark light, is a sports agent. He receives an unexpected call from his ex-girlfriend (Teresa Collins) from Paris and on reaching he finds himself involved in solving the murder mystery of Collin’s ex-husband and spots a blond girl who resembles Collin’s daughter (who apparently had died in a car accident earlier). Myron and Win start investigating and undergo a series of torture revolving around the implausible plot.
Myron’s bright character seems to have dipped strikingly in this one.
At places the plot seems interesting, only to dip again. Quirky dialogues and decent amount of action make it a one-time read.
