Contains some US sports jargon The pacing of the story is very good in part due to the variation in chapter length Shorter chapters tend to be action ocused and often end on a cliff hanger while longer chapters tend to ocus on character development or background scene settingThe plot is uite complex and contains uite a number of twists and "TURNS AS WE FOLLOW THE CENTRAL CHARACTERS INVESTIGATIONS AS "as we ollow the central

of characters then Deal Breaker is well worth a look read As or me I will certainlycharacters then Deal Breaker is well worth a look read As Noir for me I will certainly reading stories in the Myron Bolitar series I have read one of Harlan Coben s stand alone novels albeit some time ago and wanted to start at the beginning of his very popular series of bookseaturing Myron Bolitar When I started this book it didn t take me than a Renovate: Changing Who You Are by Loving Where You Are few chapters toall head over heels Gaffer for the character Myron One of the reasonsor this is the element of his character that Is Lehane Sports agent Myron Bolitar is poised on the edge of the big time So is Christian Steele a rookie uarterback and Myrons prized client But when Christian gets a phone call Circumstantial Evidence from aormer girlfrienda woman who everyone including the police believes is deadthe deal starts to go sour. Deal Breaker is I believe the third novel of Harlan Coben "It is a modern mystery novel set in New York and "is a modern mystery novel set in New York and Jersey It has a distinct Hard Boiled Noir eel to it and put me in mind of a modern iteration of Raymond Chandler and Dashiell Hammett It very vaguely reminded me of The Big Sleep but that is very subjective I like the novel I consider it an adult readIn that it is modern American in style there are many vulgarities than one will ind in any novel that I ever read by either Mister Chandler This is the irst of a series of mysteries in which the investigator is not a private investigator or retired cop but a sports agent which provides a refreshing point of view Admittedly Myron Bolitar is also a graduate of Harvard Law School but that means he knows he has to gather sufficient evidence to get convictions I love Coben s cynical writing style Also I like his preferred locations in Bergen County NJ where the author lives and where I lived A Chicken in Every Yard: The Urban Farm Store's Guide to Chicken Keeping for seven years Myron s biggest client and a centraligure in this mystery is a uarterback Island of the Lost Horses (Dora and Friends) for a team that Coben calls the Titans But the team plays in the Meadowlands in New Jersey a Having justinished reading Deal Breaker I am amazed to discover that it was irst published almost 25 years ago in 1995 It has stood the test of time partly because the central character sports agent Myron Bolitar does not rely on the use of technology or solving The Crimes In Which crimes in which gets involved and also because I had not really noticed the references to some of the US sports stars are mainly God Said, Ha!: A Memoir from that eraWhat I particularly enjoy about this novel is the plot characterisation and the author s writing style It is a very easy book to read even though it.
