Harlan Coben’s thriller novels routinely top the bestseller lists. However, before Coben became a bestselling writer, he began his career writing a mystery series featuring Myron Bolitar – a sports agent who becomes involved in mysteries as he works to protect and defend his clients. Since publishing that first Bolitar mystery, Coben has since won the Edgar, Shamus, and Anthony Awards for his work.
When former tennis star Suzze T and her rock star husband, Lex, encounter an anonymous Facebook post questioning the paternity of their unborn child, Lex runs off, and Suzze – at eight months pregnant – asks Myron to save her marriage, and perhaps her husband’s life. But when he finds Lex, he also finds someone he wasn’t looking for: his sister-in-law, Kitty, who along with Myron’s brother abandoned the Bolitar family long ago.
As Myron races to locate his missing brother while their father clings to life, he must face the lies that led to the estrangement – including the ones told by Myron himself. If we thought we knew Myron Bolitar, Coben now proves we didn’t. An electric, stay-up-all night thriller that unfolds at a breakneck pace, Live Wire proves that Harlan Coben still has the ability to shock us anew.
