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: Myrona (TM)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: Shea (TM)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 babya (TM)s paternity have driven away the man she swears is the childa (TM)s father.
For Myron, questions of fatherhood couldna (TM)t hit closer to home, as his dad, Al, clings to life; the brother who abandoned them all years ago is in trouble; and Myrona (TM)s teenage nephew needs an authority figure. Myron is soon forced to confront deep secrets in Suzzea (TM)s past; his familya (TM)s mortality a " and before Live Wire is over, his own.

This book is only for the faithful Myron Bolitar fans. If you want to see what Myron's up to, it is nice to check in with him. But, the writer did a terrible job of wrapping up anything. At the end of the book, everything is up in the air, and supposedly, there won't be any more Myron books. His nephew Mickey is taking over the franchise. Mickey was not well fleshed out, and not exactly a fun character, so I don't think that I will read the next one. This book was okay. Not great, but okay. A huge disappointment if you compare it to all the great Myron books of the past. If you are new to Myron Bolitar books, forget this book and go back and read some of the old ones.
