Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub
In this sixth novel in the award-winning Myron Bolitar series, Harlan Coben delivers a riveting powerhouse thriller—a twisting mystery of betrayal, family secrets, and murder.
Myron Bolitar’s colleague at MB SportsReps, Esperanza, has been arrested for the murder of a client, a fallen baseball star attempting a comeback. Myron is determined to prove Esperanza’s innocence—even if she won’t speak to him on the advice of her lawyer, who warns Myron to keep away from both the case and his client.

And the closer Myron gets to the truth, the more the evidence points to the only viable suspect besides Esperanza: Myron himself.

One day she told us she was going off with Owen.” “Owen was her boyfriend?” She nodded. “An average musician who fronted a garage band, certain that his immense talent was being held back by them.” She made a lemon-sucking face. “They wanted to run off and get a record deal and become famous. So Gary and I said okay. Lucy was like a wild bird trapped in a small cage. She wouldn’t stop flapping her wings no matter what we did. Gary and I felt we had no choice in the matter. We even
Honest. Yes, I followed her. But as I am sure you know, even lesbian scenes get repetitive. So after a while we’d stop watching her once she crossed the Washington Bridge. There was no point.” “So you really don’t know who killed Clu?” “Afraid not.” “Are you still following me, FJ?” “No.” “Last night. You didn’t have a man on me?” “No. And truth be told, I didn’t have a man on you when you came in here yesterday.” “The guy I spotted outside my office wasn’t yours?” “Sorry, no.” Myron was

Bonnie lowered her head. “Who were the four?” Hester asked. “Bonnie and Clu were one couple.” Myron tried to meet Bonnie’s eyes, but she wouldn’t look up. “Billy Lee Palms and Lucy Mayor were the other.” Hester Crimstein looked as if she’d been hit with a two-by-four. “Lucy Mayor?” she repeated. “As in the missing Mayor girl?” “Yes.” “Jesus Christ.” Myron kept his eyes on Bonnie.
