Live Wire by Harlan Coben is a 2011 Dutton publication. After six or seven books in the Myron Bolitar series, Harlan Coben either ran out of ideas or got some new ideas beyond his station.

Live Wire by Harlan Coben is a 2011 Dutton publication. However, despite a few minor complaints, it looks like the series righted itself and is back on track. Either way, his subsequent standalone thrillers have been largely disappointing. Compare and contrast with Dennis Lehane.

A Summary of Fade Away (Myron Bolitar series) by Harlan Coben

Is a pretty lie better than the ugly truth? Harlan Coben published his first Myron Bolitar thriller, Deal Breaker, in 1995, introducing a hero that would captivate millions. Over the years we have watched Myron walk a tight rope between sports agent, friend, problem solver and private eye, his big heart quick to defend his client's interests so fiercely that he can't help but jump in to save them, no matter the cost. When former tennis star Suzze T and her rock star husband, Lex, encounter an anonymous Facebook post questioning the paternity of their unborn child, Lex runs off, and Suzze - at eight months pregnant - asks Myron to save her marriage, and perhaps her husband's life. But when he finds Lex, he also finds someone he wasn't looking for: his sister-in-law, Kitty, who along with Myron's brother abandoned the Bolitar family long ago. As Myron races to locate his missing brother while their father clings to life, he must face the lies that led to the estrangement - including the ones told by Myron himself. If we thought we knew Myron Bolitar, Coben now proves we didn't. An electric, stay-up-all night thriller that unfolds at a breakneck pace, Live Wire proves that Harlan Coben still has the ability to shock us anew.

BOND BOND
Myron is trying to help a client, former tennis star Suzze T whose husband, a rocker, has taken off on her after someone posted two words on her Facebook page that touched off an entire series of altercations typical for Myron and Win. At this point we find out that Myron has a long lost brother after he sees his sister-in-law in the club where he tracked down Lex, the rocker, and things unravel from there. As Myron searches for his brother issues from the past resurface and the Ache brothers come back into play.

On the down side, I am not a fan of long lost siblings who suddenly appear out of the blue, especially after ten Myron Bolitar books. Also, this book got off to a bit of a slow start and there was an air of finality to the ending so we may not be seeing much more of Myron and Win. My problems with the book were not that major but compared to the rest of Harlan Coben's books like Caught this novel fell short. To me, it just felt forced and a way to wrap up a series that, up until now had popped and sizzled and this one steams. But, for Coben fans this is still a must read and it still kept me up late into the night.

Another great novel that features Myron Bolitar! This novel serves two purposes, first it is possibly (as of 11/29/2014) the last Myron Bolitar novel. As fans "boo" there is some good news, it appears that Mickey Bolitar, who was introduced in this novel will now have some adventures through the writing of Harlan Coben.

Myron continues to find himself in trouble and this novel is no exception. However, you find out that Myron has a brother... whom he hasn't spoken to in 15 years and a nephew that he has never met. The story begins with a missing person and a Facebook message. Myron is involved in solving the mystery that involves Suzze, a former tennis star who is out to find out who put a message on her Facebook page that announces that her new baby is not from her husband, Lex Ryder. Lex Ryder is rock & roll star who has also vanished and it is up to Mryon to find out what is going on. The story takes a sharp curve when Myron spots his brother's wife at a club and that is when mystery starts to unravel. Kitty, is not only the wife of Myron's brother but is also the reason why the brothers haven't spoken in over 15 years. Another interesting part of the story is their son Mickey, who is Myron's nephew that he has never met.

This story is really well written and the characters are first-rate. As the story goes along you start to realize that a passing of the torch is starting to take place. Myron, and of course Win are up to their usual tricks but Mickey is introduced with the certainty that more stories are on the way.

The story was just OK. Lacking the usual mind twists & intensity. Mainly I think because it was REALLY SHORT. No where was it described as a short story, but it was. Unabridged is typically longer & more detailed to get the reader intensely involved. This was not the case here. I suggest ALL ebooks list the hours of play time in the description so the buyer does not feel cheated when they get a 3-4 hr book after expecting an 8-9+ hr book. If short stories, they should be listed as such and sold with multiples in a box to provide at least a reasonable amount of playing time. Very bummed out & let down.

If, as it seems, Harlan Coben has chosen to end the Myron Bolitar series in favor of a young adult version featuring his nephew Mickey, he gave the character a fitting last starring role. Live Wire ranks in the top tier of the mysteries that his fans have so enjoyed.

Myron is contacted by a an old client, Suzzie T, a former tennis pro, eight months pregnant, looking for her husband, part of a famous rock duo. The fellow, named Lex Ryder, always appeared to be the second banana to his partner, Gabriel Wire, who has long lived in seclusion after a teenaged girl fell to her death from a hotel balcony fifteen years before. Suzzie is also stunned when, after posting news of her pregnancy on Facebook, she finds the posting "Not His."

Myron finds Lex in a trendy nightclub, but also spots his sister-in-law Kitty, married to his brother, Brad, estranged from his family for years because, while pregnant, Kitty told Brad that Myron, at some point, had hit on her. They, along with their son Mickey, have led a nomadic life. Now, there is evidence on a video surveillance camera, that Kitty is a junkie. After all, your typical mom doesn't bargain for a shot of heroin in exchange for oral sex.

The women knew each other from the tennis tour, although Suzzie had been far more competitive and often played with Kitty's mind to gain an advantage. Both were playmates of Gabriel Wire who always liked his sweethearts young. Soon enough, it is Suzzie who is found dead of a heroin overdose, the baby delivered alive. But while once wild and reckless, Suzzie had stopped using years ago. The trail leads back to a hopelessly strung out Kitty and the father of the girl who died when in the presence of Wire. There is another complication. Gabriel Wire and Suzzie had the same tattoo on their thighs. All of this seems to somehow be entangled with Wire, who has to be found and interrogated. But he lives on an island populated by wealthy snobs. Breaking that barrier calls for the efforts of Win, Myron's oldest friend, the billionaire investor to whom violence equals justice.

There are multiple mysteries solved here, the deaths of of Suzzie and the teenaged victim who plunged to her death, the circumstances under which Wire has been out of public view for so long while still making music.And Myron, after spending so much time solving family-based tragedies of death and destruction for others,, has now a personal mission, promising his gravely ill father that he would find Brad, the brother Myron loved and lost, partially by his own actions.

But there is a distinct lack of happiness in this book for Myron, for his life changes forever. His friendships, long an important part of his existence, undergo radical shifts. What he had been seems to end. Unless Coben reverses his intent and brings him to the forefront again, we will never know what he might have become.It makes you feel like the kid who went up to the ballplayer Joe Jackson after it became public knowledge that Jackson had participated in fixing the 1919 World Series. To paraphrase the little guy, "Say it ain't so, Harlan."
