Live Wire is the tenth book in the Myron Bolitar series. Familiar characters are back: Myron (former professional basketball player injured in his first pro-game and owner of MB Reps—an agency representing “stars”), Windsor Horne Lockwood III (“Win”-rich and very dangerous), Esperanza Diaz (Myron’s business partner, lawyer, new mom, and retired professional wrestler known as Little Pocahontas) and “Big Cindi” (Esperanza’s retired tag team wrestling partner and “receptionist extraordinaire” at MP Reps). The reader discovers how these characters are aging, entering different stages of life and facing some of life’s major events. This quote from Win in the beginning of the book is a hint to what will come: “Good things are rare. They are to be cherished because they always leave us too soon.”. . . “Doing this stuff with you,” Win said, “is one of those good things.”

The plot focuses on two of Myron’s clients: Suzze T(retired tennis pro)and Lex Ryder(Suzze’s husband and member of the legendary rock band HorsePower that includes Ryder and Gabriel Wire). The plot also focuses on Myron’s family: younger brother Brad (estranged from Myron for the past 16 Years), Brad’s wife Kitty, his teenage nephew Mickey (who Myron has never met), and his parents, Al and El(Ellen). The reader discovers how the problems of Myron’s clients and his family are intertwined.

This is one of those books you don’t want to put down. Coben keeps you guessing as to how the mystery will end. I rate the book as a 5 because it is a good mystery and as part of this series it is one of Coben’s best. The future of the Myron Bolitar series may be coming to an end but young readers will be able to read a spin-off series about Myron’s nephew, Mickey.
