I love the humanity of the characters, and the relationships of the main protagonists. The story line is interesting and surprising.

One of my favorite autor, but there's a lack of suspens in this book. Hope the next one will be better.

I think Harlan Coben is an entertaining and witty author. In One False Move, Myron Bolitar is asked to protect basketball star Brenda Slaughter, whose father and coach (Horace Slaughter) has disappeared. Brenda also asks Myron to find her mother, who disappeared 20 years ago and hasn't been heard from since. Myron is threatened by mobsters who claim that Brenda's father signed a contract with them. By his side is his friend, Win, with his playboy looks and underlying lethal tendencies. Win always manages to turn up when Myron needs him most. Coben combines a humorous dialogue with sensational characters that make this series fun to read.

This was my first book by Harlan Coben and I was hook, talk about keeping you at the edge of your seat. I have not picked up a book of his since and been disappointed. I think I only have 3 of his books left to read.

Once again, Harlan Coben and Myron Bolitar are true to form. The witty Bolitar finds himself invloved in a mystery involving murder, a disappearance from twenty years ago and political intrigue. Along with his sidekick Win, he cracks the case, while giving the reader a jolly good time. Hard to put down!

This is my second Coben book, and whilst I would say his novel Tell No One is better than this book, One False Move also keeps you interested until the final page.
Myron is a sports agent who is quick with the comebacks, can beat just about anyone in hand to hand combat and generally a pretty nice guy. His new client is Brenda Slaughter, the greatest female basketball player in the USA, she's also hot. Myron is quite happy 'babysitting' her but quickly finds out her life is rather complicated. Her mother left her twenty years ago when she was five leaving her with an overprotective father. He has also just gone missing. Brenda asks Myron to find her mother and once Myron starts poking around into the past he discovers Brenda is also in a lot of danger and her mum disappeared for a reason.
This book is a little bit unrealistic in the fact that Myron and his tycoon friend Win (I wasn't aware this was the fifth book they've appeared in until I starting reading reviews on this page as it is isn't metnioned anywhere on or in the actual book)seem to have the ability to beat anyone or groups of people in a fight but it is a work of fiction after all. It is an extremely interesting and enjoyable read. Doesn't grip you as fast as Tell No One does (which does not have Myron and Win in it) but once you get into it you can't put it down. Definitely also buy Tell No One as it is a masterpiece.

This is the fifth book in the Myron Bolitar series. While having read only three of the other six to this point, it is not possible to say with certainty that this one is the best of all seven. But "One False Move" has more in-depth personal interactions than the others that I have read, drawing the reader a little closer to Myron than is sometimes the case. For those unfamiliar with Bolitar, he runs MB SportsRep. But his circuitous journey to this point, after his budding basketball career was abruptly ended due to a serious on-court injury, gives Myron a dimension far beyond the typical sports agent.
The book is, as usual with Coben, fast-paced with Myron and Win, his quirky, lethal, and blue-blood partner, encountering all manner of sleaze-balls and people with something to hide. Brenda Slaughter, the girl that the new WPBA basketball league is featuring, should be on top of the world. But her father has gone missing after she filed assault charges against him, not to mention the fact that her long-lost mother of twenty years has been on her mind all of that time. Enter Myron; the league needs its investment protected. But the assignment gets more complicated and riskier by the day.
Some reviewers find the Coben books humorous. And they are. But the dialogue is more edgy than funny. Of course, the new office worker Cyndi, the spikey ex-pro female wrestler, is captivating and hilarious.
There are some good twists in this book. I missed the one at the end - well actually I missed all of them. See if you can get it (them). Meanwhile I'm starting another Myron Bolitar book.
