The book is, as usual with Coben, fast-paced with Myron and Win, his quirky, lethal, and blue-blood partner, encountering all manner of sleaze-balls and people with something to hide. Brenda Slaughter, the girl that the new WPBA basketball league is featuring, should be on top of the world. But her father has gone missing after she filed assault charges against him, not to mention the fact that her long-lost mother of twenty years has been on her mind all of that time. Enter Myron; the league needs its investment protected. But the assignment gets more complicated and riskier by the day.
Some reviewers find the Coben books humorous. And they are. But the dialogue is more edgy than funny. Of course, the new office worker Cyndi, the spikey ex-pro female wrestler, is captivating and hilarious.
There are some good twists in this book. I missed the one at the end - well actually I missed all of them. See if you can get it (them). Meanwhile I'm starting another Myron Bolitar book.
What a powerful read! A page turner from the very beginning. Myron agrees to look after an upcoming woman basketball player. Of course, he gets in depths beyond his swimming capacity but still will not give in or give up. Thank heaven, he has Win who sometimes is his voice of reason. I too would like to see more intense punishment for the bad guys. Myron holds Win on a tight leash, yet depends on Win's saving his butt at the cruicial moment. Again, the characters are vivid. Myron was a pushover for his client, Brenda the gorgeous Amazon. Myron and Esperanza reach a crossroad. Win is so wonderful; the man is a psycho dream!!! Thank heaven, he sees Myron as a true friend. He is Myron's guardian angel!
Mr. Coben's books are wonderful reads. This one was not as witty and funny but the sarcasm was still there. The ending is breathtaking! On to the next.
Myron Bolitar, the college basketball stud-turned fed-turned sports' agent (not to mention the latest star in the upcomming Yoo-Hoo commercial), is back again for another wild adventure. ONE FALSE MOVE is Myron's "darkest" tale to date. On the brink of starting a Women's Professional Basketball League, Brenda Slaughter, the hottest star has been getting threatening phone calls. In being called in to provide protection, Myron becomes her agent, but the adventure is just beginning. Her mother has been missing for twenty years, and her father turns up dead, only to have her as the prime suspect. Throw in the mafia Ache brothers, crooked politicians, and a new leader of Myron's biggest competition, and you have yourself one amazing novel.
All of the standard characters are back, including the ever-popular psycho-yuppie Win, the sizzling Esperanza Diaz, who is slowly but surely gaining her voice in the series, the sensational girlfriend Jessica Culver, Myron's parents, "El-Al" Bolitar, and "Big Chief Mama" herself, Big Cyndi. Let's never forget to use the "Big!"
As in all of Coben's books, the witty dialogue makes the novel that is already so cohesively complete with an excellent storyline and a wonderfully detailed, yet unique writing style, that much better. There are always a multitude of plot twists, and the suspense of the whodunnit mystery is apparent to the very last chapter of the book. ONE FALSE MOVE keeps you guessing throughout, making for one entertaining and exciting read. This book is a winner. Case closed!
