“Another page turner...
Coben always pleases!”
“Myron is drowning his sorrows on an isolated beach in the Carribbean with a beautiful lady, when Win shows up to inform him that Esperanza is in jail for murder and Myron had better come home. When he arrives at home, Esperanza won't talk to him and neither will her attorney. So Myron has to dig into the past of the victim, an aging baseball player that Myron once helped out of a DUI charge in a small town. This path leads Myron thru death threats, sexual deviants and the mob.”Ed S wrote this review Sunday, April 14, 2013. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“While Myron Bolitar is on a tropical island forgetting all his problems, Myron's client, Baseball Star Clu Haid, was found murdered in his home. Esperanza is arrested and neither she or her attorney will talk to Myron. Determined to help her, Myron starts digging into the last days of Clu's life. Clue was Myron's first ever client who he helped out of scrapes to keep his career on the right path. Now Myron's investigation leads him to believe Esperanza was framed, and Myron was the real target.
Another great addition to the Myron Bolitar series. In this book we learn a little more about what makes Myron tick. We also see a lot more of one of my favorite characters, Big Cyndi. Once again I got to the end of the book and had no idea who was behind the murder. But Coben ties all the loose ends together brilliantly and leaves me ready to pick up the next book. My rating: 5 Stars. ”

“Myron Bolitar decided to leave town after the last investigation when started falling in love with the woman he was hired to protect and who didn’t fare so well. He ends up on a private Caribbean beach with a woman he barely knows who is also looking for an escape. Meanwhile, all hell is breaking loose back at home and Win shows up to bring him home to face the carnage. Esperanza and his business are both in trouble and someone has obviously targeted Myron for ruin.
This was one of the best of the stories to date as we not only get Myron’s brain but his heart. We finally get some insight into his personal background beyond basketball, including why he and Jessica Culver parted the first time. The case he returns to is problematic and Esperanza isn’t talking. Myron’s been in trouble before and he’s been able to rely on Win to save the day but this time he finds himself relying on his own wits, skill and downright good luck.
As with all of the stories in this series, I didn’t figure out who was responsible for everything until it was revealed, though I did come close. Myron’s turned a corner in this story, having to do some soul searching and making a final decision about his relationship with Jessica. This is an excellent installment in the series.
“Picked this up in a discount book store back cover text sounded interesting so I thought I would give it a try. I found it entertaining and not too much of a challenging read but a number of interesting twists throughout. Will definitely read thi author again.”Robert Marriner wrote this review Monday, January 21, 2013. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“If you love mysteries & laughing read Harlan Coben...just finished The Final Detail featuring Myron Bolitar (Coben's series). The former basketball player turned sports agent once again finds himself embroiled in a mystery. This time his business partner, Esperanza, is accused of murdering one of their clients. But Esperanza isn't talking. Neither is her lawyer. To prove his friend's innocence, Myron must trace the rise and fall of the victim, a pitcher who'd been making a comeback with the Yankees. I was laughing out loud throughout the book. I definitely recommend reading Coben, if not his Bolitar series, then any of his books...I promise you'll have a good time.
