Some brief overview of this book

No sooner had supermodel Laura Ayers and Celtics star David Baskin said I do than tragedy struck. While honeymooning on Australias Great Barrier Reed, David went out for a swim-and never returned. Now widowed and grieving, Lauras search for the truth will draw her into a web of lies and deception that stretches back thirty years...

he is also adept at generating laughs along the way. His books often start with a few pieces of bad news and end with the closet door flung open to reveal a few skeletons. Debuting in 1995, the series that cemented Cobens reputation revolves around Myron Bolitar, a wisecracking sports agent who always finds himself getting into trouble, via his clients or his own past. Whats endearing about these books is Cobens willingness to have fun as he spins a story. He might poke fun the yuppie wardrobe of Bolitars partner, Win, or his gal Friday (and sometime female wrestler), Big Cyndis, tendency to wear more makeup than the cast of Cats. Theres a slight boys club air to the series, but its more frat house than locker room — or more appropriately, rec room, since Bolitar finds himself still living at his parents in his early 30s. Sports-averse readers should not avoid the Bolitar books; in the end, sports play only a peripheral role in the story, which is primarily about the mystery. Given this, its not surprising that Coben has called William Goldmans Marathon Man one of his favorite thrillers and has cited Philip Roth and Alfred Hitchcock as influences. And yes, theres certainly life beyond Bolitar! Coben has crafted a number of superb stand-alone thrillers filled with tortuous twists and turns and peopled with characters you cant help but root for. In a 2001 interview, the author stated, I love a book that sneaks up behind you at the end and slaps you in the back of the head. Ultimately, that describes everything in Harlan Cobens oeuvre.

Good To Know

Coben has four children with wife Anne, his sweetheart since age 20. Coben advises aspiring writers thusly: Write. Dont take classes. Dont join workshops. Dont listen to me, he told the Charlotte Austin Review. Just write. Oh, and cut. Cut a lot. Youre probably not editing yourself enough. Then rewrite. Then rewrite again. Repeat. Like with shampooing. Coben says his mother was his best literary inspiration in an interview with the Page One literary newsletter. Wed go to the old Barnes & Noble in Manhattan (back then, if you can believe this, I think there was only one) and spend the entire day. We didnt have much money back then and we almost never bought toys — but we were always allowed to get whatever books we wanted. In our interview, Coben shared more fun facts: I once worked as a tour guide in the Costa del Sol of Spain. I pretty much only wear Lilly Pulitzer ties because my best friend owns the company.

Biography

Harlan Coben may be the only mystery writer to have inspired the dubious endorsement, Raymond Chandler meets Bridget Jones (as the Chicago Tribune wrote about Darkest Fear). But its not hard to see what the critic means: Coben knows how to create a good chase, but he is also adept at generating laughs along the way. His books often start with a few pieces of bad news and end with the closet door flung open to reveal a few skeletons. Debuting in 1995, the series that cemented Cobens reputation revolves around Myron Bolitar, a wisecracking sports agent who always finds himself getting into trouble, via his clients or his own past. Whats endearing about these books is Cobens willingness to have fun as he spins a story.
