Deal breaker by Harlan Coben is a 2006 Delacorte Press publication. My first Harlan Coben book! I can't even belive it myself. This was a quick read paced with drama, black belt jujitsu, and sarcastic wit.

Deal breaker by Harlan Coben is a 2006 Delacorte Press publication. I recently discovered a new Myron Bolitar book is on its way, (in September 2016), which has me feeling stoked, since I always like this series. But, it got me thinking about how long it’s been since I read a book in this series, since I have been sticking with Coben’s stand alone novels for the most part.

DEAL BREAKER is the first in Harlan Coben's new series staring sports agent Myron Bolitar. I must say I cheated a bit by reading two of the Bolitar series before the first. However, this did not detract from my enjoyment of the first. Now I've started the Myron Bolitar series, and the first book, Deal Breaker, is another winner. I look forward to reading my way through all the books. Myron is a great character – a wise guy who can't help joking around even with a gun trained on his heart.

Harlan Coben is an American bestselling thriller author born to a Jewish family in Newark, New Jersey, on January 4, 1962. Harlan attended Amherst College and majored in political science. After graduating, he worked for his father in a company in the travel industry. Harlan is married to Anne Armstrong-Coben, a pediatrician, and has four children. One of the most decorated authors of all time, Harlan was the first writer to win all the three awards: Edgar Award, Shamus Award and Anthony Award.

The building was only three stories high but wide. Greek columns out front screamed House of Learning. Meetings of the usual campus groups: the African American Change Committee, the Gay-Lesbian Alliance, the Liberators of Palestine, the Coalition to Stop the Domination of Womyn (never spelled women, for the sexism the name implies), the South African Freedom Fighters-all taking the summer off. College fun days. There was no one inside the huge lobby. The motif was marble.

DEAL BREAKER is the first in Harlan Coben's new series staring sports agent Myron Bolitar. I must say I cheated a bit by reading two of the Bolitar series before the first. However, this did not detract from my enjoyment of the first. Bolitar, an ex-college and NBA standout switched to being a sports agent and part-time private eye after a crippling injury forced him to drop out of NBA competition. Harlan Coben, an accomplished and award-winning mystery writer ably develops believable plots with compelling characters. Myron Bolitar manifests humor, striking good looks and a magnetic personality that turns women's heads and makes men sit up and take notice. Myron's best friend and business partner, Windsor Horne Lockwood III, better known as, Win, is the wealthy intellect of the company who loves to kick ass and kill if necessary. The beautiful Esperanza, Myron's secretary, once women's national professional wrestling champion who fought under the name, Pocohontas, adds humor and organization to Myron's outer office. Myron lands his first big client, rookie quarterback, Christian Steele. All goes well until Steele's fiancee, Kathy Culver, turns up missing. When no trace of her is found after 18 months she is presumed dead and law enforcement stops looking. Enters the gorgeous and charming Jessica Culver, Kathy's older sister and Myron's former live-in girlfriend. Jessica convinces Myron to help locate her little sister who she believes is still alive. Soon the sisters' father, and Kathy's ex-roommate turn up dead. The story is a multi-plotted page turner that keeps the reader on his toes. The ending is typical Coben—lengthy and perplexing. Deal Breaker is an action packed great starter for the Bolitar series. I give the novel a strong 4-star rating.

Fist I read Tell No One, and loved it. Now I've started the Myron Bolitar series, and the first book, Deal Breaker, is another winner. I look forward to reading my way through all the books.

Myron is a great character – a wise guy who can't help joking around even with a gun trained on his heart. He's thirty-five and still lives with his mother and father, who exhibit the smothering behavior we expect from Jewish parents. Yet he's a viral guy, still nursing a passion for his ex-girlfriend Jessica. A former FBI agent, he has investigative skills and martial arts training. A former basketball star, he's now a sports agent. His best friend, Windsor Horne Lockwood III (Win), looks like a wimpy Wasp, but is in fact a bit of a psycho, a crack shot and expert bone-breaker.

Two unsolved cases become of interest to Myron – the murder of his ex-girlfriend Jessica's father and the disappearance of her sister. The sister was also the fiancée of one of Myron's clients, a brilliant young football player. Myron, who believes in justice and truth, despite his strong sense of irony, finds himself deep into a dangerous investigation. His encounters with big-time mobsters, hit men, pornographers, and small-time con men are great fun, with Myron delivering smart-alecky quips, and Win adding menace.

It's entertaining to watch Myron working his many and varied connections. And I also greatly enjoyed watching Myron and Win exercise their martial arts skills on unsuspecting bad guys.

The story is rife with colorful characters, like Myron's Latino assistant Esperanza, a petite and gorgeous former lady wrestler. Harlan Coben is a good writer, and his characters have all the charm, foibles and absurdities of real people.

So this book has my enthusiastic recommendation, and I've already ordered the next three.

The Bolitar series has never let me down. I enjoy reading Harlan Coben's books - there's always a number of twists and turns in them, though this one seemed more predictable than some of the others in the series. This is a quick read and enjoyable. Was always wondering how Myron ended up with Jessica - it's here in the first novel. It's no wonder that Jessica has a thing for Myron given his work in helping here find out what happened to her sister (don't want to give away too much).

DEAL BREAKER is the first novel in the Myron Bolitar series, but I have to admit, I didn't read this book until recently.

Which turns out to be a good thing, because had this been the first Harlan Coben novel I'd ever read, I'd have never picked up another book by the same author again.

Why?

Because of the ending. Chapter 46, to be exact, in which there's a dialog between the main protagonist, Myron, and his sidekick, Win; a chapter and a dialogue that exists for the sole purpose of explaining the plot. Many thriller and mystery writers have to resort to this kind of dialogue, but if handled skillfully, it does not wake the reader from the fictive dream. Whereas the rest of the book was very meticulously thought out and carefully, and, indeed, skillfully written, this particular chapter was sloppy, rushed, and completely unbelievable.

Where was his editor in all this?

Were it not for Chapter 46, I'd have given this book four stars. It was well written and well thought out. I'd have taken away a star because the plot was over-contrived, and even without the infamous, and bafflingly atrocious Chapter 46, the ending was still not handled the way I would have liked. Coben does a great job in his other books, believe me, and if I'm so tough on this particular novel, it's because I've grown accustomed to--okay, spoiled by--a much higher caliber of exposition.

Authors are humans too. Even the best of them. Some books they write simply don't compare with the rest. Some are leagues above, some lightyears below. They are the statistical outliers in the writer's long list of published works.

This novel might be important to some because it is the first in the series. If you are one of those readers, by all means, start off with few expectations, then go ahead and read DEAL BREAKER. Otherwise, do yourself and the gifted Mr. Coben a favor--give this one a miss.
