Harlan Coben

Winner of the Edgar Award, Shamus Award and Anthony Award - the first author to win all three -- New York Times bestseller Harlan Coben's critically-acclaimed novels have been called 'ingenious' (New York Times), 'poignant and insightful' (Los Angeles Times), 'consistently entertaining' (Houston Chronicle), 'superb' (Chicago Tribune) and 'must reading' (Philadelphia Inquirer. His books are published in more than twenty-five languages in over thirty countries.

Since his critically-acclaimed Myron Bolitar series debuted in 1995, Harlan Coben has won the Mystery Writers of America's Edgar Allan Poe Award and was nominated for the Edgar two other times. Harlan also won the Anthony Award at the World Mystery Conference, was nominated for another Anthony Award, won the Shamus Award by the Private Eye Writers of America, was nominated for another Shamus, and was twice nominated for the Dilys Award by the Independent Mystery Booksellers Association. His novel ONE FALSE MOVE earned him the prestigious 'Fresh Talent Award', given annually by Great Britain's largest bookstore chain, W. H. Smith.

The novel TELL NO ONE was short-listed for an Edgar, a Macavity, an Anthony and a Barry Award. In the United Kingdom, GONE FOR GOOD won the W. H. SMITH Thumping Good Read Award.



Synopsis of this title

Over the years, Myron Bolitar has walked a tight rope between sports agent, friend, problem solver and private eye, his big heart quick to defend his clients' interests so fiercely that he can't help but jump in to save them, no matter the cost to his own happiness.

So 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 two people he wasn't looking for: his sister-in-law, Kitty, wife of Myron's estranged brother, and her teenage son, Mickey, who is achingly familiar. But this boy that he has never met blames Myron for everything that has happened to his parents...

As Myron races to locate his missing brother while their father clings to life after a savage heart-attack, he must face the lies that led to the estrangement long ago - including the ones told by Myron himself. He must also answer the questions that Mickey's arrival has thrown up. Who is Myron Bolitar really? And can he heal the damage of the past?

We thought we knew Myron, but Harlan Coben now shows us we never did. An electric, stay-up-all night thriller that unfolds at a breakneck pace, Live Wire proves that Coben still has the ability to shock us anew.
