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.
