Deal Breaker by Harlan Coben

My first Coben book. And I enjoyed the funny banter. It’s entertaining.

Deal Breaker (1995) first in his Myron Bolitar series.

A former NBA basketball player, Myron is the owner of MB SportsReps, an agency representing sports stars and celebrities.

Two regular supporting characters in the Myron Bolitar series are his best friend, Windsor Horne Lockwood III (better known as “Win”), and his assistant at MB Reps, Esperanza Diaz.  …

Bolitar is depicted as being a good agent for his clients, taking care of their needs and wants while being careful to not exploit them like bigger agencies. He also helps out clients in times of personal need, which often puts him in the role of “accidental detective.”  …

Deal Breaker starts with Christian Steele, an NFL rookie quarterback, Myron’s prized client, getting a phone call from a former girlfriend, whom everyone, including the police, believes is dead.

Myron is plunged into a baffling mystery of sex and blackmail.

Harlan Coben went to High School with Chris Christie. To Amherst College with writer Dan Brown.
