"Live Wire" by Harlan Coben
Dutton, 375 pp., $27.95
Reviewed by David Marshall James
Harlan Coben writes at the top of his game in this latest novel featuring NYC uber-agent Myron Bolitar & Co., a novel that marks a major turning point for all the principal characters.
No giveaways. No spoilers. Not even a little hint.
Just the set-up-- One of Myron's clients-- once a teenage tennis ace, presently collecting on her endorsements-- seeks his help in getting to the bottom of a disturbing Facebook message, which has caused her rock 'n' roller husband to take a powder.
Thus, one of the two main plot strands is set in motion.
The other involves Myron's estranged brother, Brad; his wife, Kitty; and their fifteen-year-old son, Mickey.
Myron has never seen his nephew, nor has he laid eyes on the boy's parents since before they were married.
At that time, Kitty was also poised to become as big a tennis-tournament topper as Myron's worried client.
