A Myron Bolitar novel which preceded his psychological thrillers and were published by a different publisher (Hodder) a few years back. This one was 1999 but unless you are an obsessive fan you probably missed it. It is classic Harlan Coben - powerful, moving and ultimately shocking. It tells of what a friend can sacrifice and how hard it is to save those you love - particularly from themselves....

Myron Bolitar is trying to get away from it all. But a friend is in trouble - murder trouble . . .
Myron screwed up. His job was to protect someone. He fell in love with that someone and then she died. End of story.
So he's dropped out, left, run away to the Caribbean to escape his guilt. But now everything that he left behind has come back to haunt him. A friend is in trouble, murder trouble. The victim? One of his own clients.
In order to help his friend, Myron must battle for her freedom - against her own wishes...
"Coben produces his usual mix of hard-boiled crime and wise-guy humour... with Bolitar, it's the mayhem that keeps the pages turning." Andrea Henry, DAILY MIRROR
"Just an everyday tale of normal law-abiding, cross-dressing psychotic New Yorkers."THE GUARDIAN
"An outstanding success. This is a grand, rollicking read full of refreshing, new-style writing, snappy one-liners and clever repartee. In terms of plot, Coben cannot be faulted. You might fail to spot whodunit and, when all is revealed, feel genuine surprise and deight. If you read only one American novel this year, make sure that it is this one." SUNDAY EXPRESS
