This was probably my favorite installment of the Myron Bolitar mystery series to date. The author has expanded the main character’s universe to include not just athletes but entertainers as well. I can’t really put my finger on why I enjoyed this book so much – maybe merely because it has been so many books since the last installment. He seems to be taking Bolitar in a new direction.
A favorite quote of mine can be found on Instagram. Here is how I rank all of his books thus far…
- Tell No One (2001): Emails and the Inner-City
- Fade Away (1996): The New Jersey Dragons and Unrealized Dreams
- No Second Chance (2003): Shattered Windows and the Serbian Underground
- Just One Look (2004): Family Photos and Big Hair Bands
- Promise Me (2006): Transcripts and Teachers
- One False Move (1998): The New York Dolphins and Old Mentors
- The Innocent (2005): Self-Defense and Camera Phones
- Back Spin (1997): The PGA US Open and Mysterious Kidnappings
- Gone for Good (2002): Covenant House and Childhood Bullies
- The Final Detail (1999): The New York Yankees and Failed Drug Tests
- Darkest Fear (2000): Paternity Suits and Plagiarism
- Drop Shot (1996): The ATP US Open and Gang Violence
- Deal Breaker (1995): The New York Titans and Magazine Advertisements
- Play Dead (1990): The Boston Celtics and Australia’s Great Barrier Reef
- Miracle Cure (1991): The New York Knicks and HIV
I look forward to reading Death Do Us Part at some point over the summer months – a collection of short stories edited by the author.
Anyone read it already? If so, what did you think?
