Myron’s got a new client in rising tennis star Duane Richwood who is tearing through the US Open. Valer...more

This is the second in Harlan Coben's sports agent/detective Myron Bolitar series. I read the first one for my Mystery Book Club last year and I liked it well enough to give the second one a try. I have two more in this series on my Kindle but I don't think I'll be turning to them anyt...more
Drop Shot is not just a novel with a mystery and story to it..it is more than that...there are relationships, there is betrayal, there are tender moments, there are sacrifices, there is character development..oh there is so much to every novel when it comes to Harlan Coben!
I have read all his standalone novels and loved each one of them. Was a little skeptical on starting the Bolitar series because I am not a fan of one central hero. Because then the book becomes les...more
While at a high level tennis tourney to watch his latest young client climb up the rankings, Myron is shocked when a former tennis prodigy who had recently tried to contact him is murdered in the stadium in front of at least a dozen witnesses who seem to see nothing. Not only does Myron want to solve the case because he feels guilty that he never got in touch with the young woman...more
First, give your hero an unassuming name like Myron. It isn't the most masculine sounding name and I don't mean any disrespect to Myrons out there in the reading world. Even John Wayne opted to change his name from Marion in order to create the persona we later called the Duke.
Second, give your hero a fascination...more
Clearing Duane's name should be easy enough. Duane was playing in a match at the time of Val...more
Myron é uma personagem agradável. Ele é inteligente, sexy, audaz, provocador, cómico.
Como seu companheiro de aventuras temos Win (Windsor Horne Lockwood III). É uma personagem atípica. É milionário, extravagante, inteligente mas também cruel e frio e que acredita que os fins justificam os meios.
Enquanto Myron é uma personagem criada para nos agradar, Win tem mais o objectivo de nos criar uma certa repulsa.
A história é en...more
This was the first one I read in the Myron Bolitar series and it was very good and soooo funny sometimes, the writing style keeps us going and going.
Even though I figured out one of the great mysteries of the story by the middle of the book, I had to get to the end to check if I was right ;)
I want to know more about Myron and Win!
A returning tennis star is shot dead and Myron is bound to solve the mystery, even more so after various characters try to scare him off the case. The only problem--Myron's up and coming star is implicated. And there...more
This is the second book in the Myron Bolitar series and it's another winner. The story is fast moving and entert...more
Myron Bolitar is my new favorite <3
he seemed very pretentious at first sight. what with being a fed , nba player AND a lawyer . Not to forget - a cheesy lover.
One of the best plots i've read - sucked me right in and leaves one gasping for breath!!
i did figure out the ending - although this one requires a really twisted mind. Also totally loved the morality differences between win and myron.
P.S - feel a bit cheated for all the years that...more
Another book that reminds me of the defense of certain crimes for the better good as in Crime and Punishment. [Will every book I read involving crime/murder now make me think of [author:Fyodor Dostoyevsky|3137322]? Maybe that's among the reasons why C&P is a...more
This book focuses on an up-and-coming tennis star. However, just as with the first book, you really don't need to know anything about the sport, or even like the sport, to enjoy the book. The real story is the people - the drama, the s...more
Someone was shot in cold blood at one of the most important tennis venues and times in the tennis world. That someone turned out to be a famous tennis player. The deception, lies, protection, and quick wits that Myron Bolitar whips out had me in hysterics. I love this character, but you know who I love even more? Win. Yeah totally in love with this guy.
I really did enjoy this book, but then again it's by my favorite author...more
This is the second in a series of mysteries featuring Myron Bolitar, a sports agent and it's hard to know what to make of it as it's part decent and realistic mystery and part comic book hero takes on the world. Myron is a larger than life character who has been on the verge of being a star basketball player, he then became a federal agent, has a law degree and is a member of the New York bar. That's on top of being a sports agent representing superstar sportsmen. I like him and find him an oddl...more
Nuts and bolts. I enjoyed this. Was it far fetched, yes. Was it absurd, yes. But, again, I did enjoy it. Here's the deal, I read this immediately after Les Mis. Almost anything was going to be a step down. This is not on the same literary plane. Clearly. Taken for what's its worth, this was a good read.
