Darkest Fear…

I had the chance during this holiday break to continue Harlan Coben’s Myron Bolitar Series with Darkest Fear.
This installment is unique in that a major player from a previous novel makes a return appearance – and the main storyline has little to nothing to do with sports.  The conclusion is one of the best yet – but the overall narrative is a bit difficult to follow at times.  I am enjoying Bolitar’s inner struggle with the age-old question – does the end always justify the means.
Here is how I rank all of his books thus far…
  1. Fade Away (1996):  The New Jersey Dragons and Unrealized Dreams
  2. One False Move (1998):  The New York Dolphins and Old Mentors
  3. Back Spin (1997):  The PGA US Open and Mysterious Kidnappings
  4. The Final Detail (1999):  The New York Yankees and Failed Drug Tests
  5. Darkest Fear (2000):  Paternity Suits and Plagiarism
  6. Drop Shot (1996):  The ATP US Open and Gang Violence
  7. Deal Breaker (1995):  The New York Titans and Magazine Advertisements
  8. Play Dead (1990):  The Boston Celtics and Australia’s Great Barrier Reef
  9. Miracle Cure (1991):  The New York Knicks and HIV
I plan to read Tell No One at some point earlier this year.  Anyone read it already?  If so, what did you think?
