Mickey and Myron Bolitar continue the adventure they began in shelter and continued in seconds away. Mickey’s father is still dead (nudge, nudge, wink, wink), his tennis wunderkind Mom is in rehab, he’s not speaking to his uncle Myron, his best friend Spoon is paralyzed from the west down, he is being ostracized by the rest of the basketball team, his friend Rachel is made at him for telling her the truth about her Mom, he is falling for his friend Emma but she has an online boyfriend, a holocaust survivor is giving him cryptic messages and someone is trying to keep him from finding out a truth. Harlan Coben manages to take a whole lot of disparate elements and crafts a cohesive and entertaining thriller.
Did I enjoy it? If you don’t know by now how much I like Harlan Coben’s writing, you haven’t been reading these reviews for very long.
What is with the title of the review? Harlan has crafted another series that I look forward to reading. I want more Mickey Bolitar.
