I went back to the past to read an early Myron Bolitar novel by author Harlan Coben. If you are not familiar with the series, Myron is a former athlete and current sports agent and he likes to solve murders in his spare time. In Drop Shot he tries to solve the murder of a tennis star and the trail leads him a little too close to home and puts him at odds with some unsavory characters and some bad guys. Oh and the lead detective doesn’t think much of him either.
While there is violence, the storyline is good basic detective work which results in an enjoyable novel. This would be a great beach novel. Having read several Bolivar novels I don’t quite remember Myron’s compatriot, Win, being quite so violent in later books. The violence is not gratuitous, but it is there.
