Sports agent and part time detective Myron Bolitar and his aristocratic and sociopathic side kick Windsor Horne Lockwood III (Win) are a brilliant crime thriller double act now into their 9th book. But in Live Wire wisecracking Myron is about to find trouble at every turn and that sometimes the ugliest truth is better than the prettiest of lies...

If you like Harlan Coben you might also like to read books by Lee Child, Kathy Reichs and John Verdon.

Synopsis

Live Wire by Harlan Coben

Former tennis star Suzze T and her rock star husband, Lex, are both clients - but now Lex has disappeared and a very pregnant Suzze is in tears, fearing the online rumours questioning the baby's paternity has driven away the man she swears is the child's father.

For Myron, questions of fatherhood couldn't hit closer to home, as his father clings precariously to life, and the brother who abandoned the family years ago resurfaces - with danger following close behind. Myron is soon forced to confront deep secrets in Suzze's past, his family's mortality - and his own.

Reviews

In the hands of Harlan Coben you are kept guessing - and intrigued - until the last line * GUARDIAN * [A] brilliantly tense, beautifully written new mystery for Coben - possibly the most joyously readable crime writer in the world right now * HEAT * Harlan Coben is the modern master of the hook-and-twist - luring you in on the first page, only to shock you on the last * Dan Brown * Harlan Coben specialises in rousing the snake that lurks in the perfectly cut grass of American suburbia ... Coben makes you care about them but never neglects a plot that is full of his trademark shocks * SUNDAY TELEGRAPH *

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

As for why I'd recommend Lovereading, it's simple - it's a great place to get information and reviews about new books!

Their sending me my first book to review 18 months ago re-awakened my fondness for reading, since then I have purchased some real gems.
