The boy was born and raised on the Main Line. But he vanished on Philadelphia's mean streets - last seen in a down-town cheater's hotel. For sports agent Myron Bolitar, his client, superstar Linda Coldren, comes first, and that means unravelling the mystery of her son's kidnapping. But when Myron goes after the missing boy, he crashes through a crowd of low-lifes, blue-bloods and liars on both sides of the social divide.

Promotional Information

An excellent Myron Bolitar novel from the No.1 bestselling author of TELL NO ONE and PROMISE ME. Reissued in the stunning cover design alongside Harlan Coben's brand new novel, THE WOODS. All the backlist are being reissued in the new livery in 2007. Coben is now widely recognised as one of the thriller genre's biggest stars. He is also a New York Times bestseller and had three titles in the 2004 Guardian fastseller chart. Harlan Coben always receives fantastic reviews: 'Superbly plotted, pulling you down unexpected by-ways with apparent ease. This is Coben's great ability. He can twist a plot (usually involving dark secrets from the past) in ways that leave you breathless' Daily Telegraph. 'Bolitar is a glorious character' Guardian. 'Coben, as ever, takes us on a gritty pungent journey into some of the less savoury byways of human behaviour; a journey shot through with sardonic humour and trenchant observation' Independent. 'A consummate and thrilling piece of storytelling' Observer. 'Brilliant ... Coben proves why he's one of the top crime writers in the world' Daily Mirror.

About the Author

Harlan Coben was the first ever author to win all three major crime awards in the US. He is now global bestseller with his mix of powerful stand-alone thrillers and Myron Bolitar crime novels. He has appeared in the bestseller lists of THE TIMES, the NEW YORK TIMES, LE MONDE, WALL STREET JOURNAL and the LOS ANGELES TIMES. He currently lives in New Jersey with his wife and four children.


Coben, who just won the Edgar for best original paperback (Fade Away) scores a hole in one with this fourth outing for basketball star tuned sports agent Myron Bolitar. Golf takes center stage, but the sharp plotting and emotional density, as well as nonstop wisecracks, make this a book even for the golf-averse. When someone kidnaps the son of golfer Jack Coldren just as he's poised to win the U.S. Open, the boy's grandfather asks Myron to help. The mother, golf champion Linda Coldren, is afraid to notify police, and Myron sees an opportunity not only to save a life but also to sign up a couple of new clients. Bodies and clues pile up, and as the past unravels, Myron discovers that the Coldrens' skeletons touch even his close but enigmatic friend, Win. The characters are deftly etched and the details keenly observed (regarding a group of mall girls: "There were four girls. Or maybe five or even six. Hard to say. They all seemed to blend into one another"). (Aug.)
