The Final Detail is the sixth book of the popular Myron Bolitar series and begins with Myron and a beautiful woman on a small Caribbean island. After the emotional events that occurred in the last book, One False Move, Myron was unable to cope with his life or career as the owner of MB SportsReps, a Manhattan-based sports agency. His best friend and confidant, Win arrives by yacht to tell him that Esperanza Diaz, Myron's partner in MB SportsReps, has been arrested for murder.

She's alleged to have killed New York Yankees pitcher Clu Haid, Myron's first client. Myron and Haid were fraternity brothers years before at Duke University. Myron knows Esmeralda is innocent, despite the fact that the murder weapon was found in Myron's office. There's also the fact that Clu had withdrawn $200,000 from his investment account and his blood has been found in Myron's car, the car that was being driven by Esperanza.

I really enjoy this series and it's turned into one of my favorites. While the book starts a bit slowly, it picks up it's pace after a few chapters and becomes a page turner. This is a series that continues to get better the further you go. It's got humor, and there's always a lot of wisecracking dialogue between the main characters. Win is an especially fascinating character who is handsome, wealthy, and a bit of a psycho. Esperanza takes a back seat in this book but Big Cyndi, her friend and former wrestling tag team partner, gets a chance to really shine. It's a great mystery and also explores how Myron feels about facing up to who you are and how you make the most of the rest of your life.

Coben's protagonist is Myron Bolitar who is a professional sports agent. I only have one sport so I've been waiting for his baseball book. I shouldn't have waited. This guy knows how to make words sing. "The plane descended without delay, the landing was so smooth it could have been choreographed by the Temptations." Little gems like this are sprinkled liberally throughout the story which is also not too shabby. In Final Detail Bolitar's partner, Esperanza, has been arrested for the murder of one of his clients, pitcher Clu Haid and she won't say a word about anything. The characters are all people I would love to have lunch with and the dialogue is snappy. I can't wait to read the other Coben's. ( )

Excellently narrated by Jonathan Marosz. This is the 6th in the Myron Bolitar series. It's funny yet serious. Coben muses periodically through the characters on an assortment of issues. Gender plays a role in this mystery and one of the characters, Thrill, a journalist going incognito as a stunning thrill seeker with a substantial bosom, explains how men react to mammary glands. It's as "if the nipples were grapefruit spoons to reached out and gouged out the frontal lobes of men making them lose all sense." she muses.

Myron has, for all intents and purposes, disappeared to the Caribbean. Wyn tracks him down to bring him back following murder charges that have been lodged against Myron's assistant, Esperanza. The plot revolves around an incident that happened many years ago. Whether Wyn is right in rationalizing Myron's behavior I leave to the reader. Let's just say the book is replete with ethical conundrums (conundra? - there seems to be some disagreement.) ( )

This time, this novel by Coben reaches way back into the past, 20 years ago. This novel deals wit baseball, drugs, murders, culpability and honor, and a set up. I didn't find this novel in the Bolitar series as quip-filled, nor as interesting as the past couple. It lacked a little something, and I'm not sure what just yet. And even though Bllitar's mother is a bit of a nag, I don't like the idea that they may both be retiring, selling their home of approx 40 years, and possibly even moving to Florida. (Nor the other thing the dad is going through). There are still nasty asides lobbed at the Bog Cindy character which could be left out, and make the Bolitar character, and Coben himself seem way less sizeist, and not quote such assholes. I'm trying to ignore them and keep reading through the series...... 4 stars ( )

Standard Harlan Coben fare - meaning fast paced intrigue, twists and turns galore, and an ending you won't see coming. ( )

[Myron Bolitar's] adventures are greased by a thousand wisecracks, many of them funny and none of them developing the plot or deepening the characters. The crackerjack mystery itself does that: ... Myron is as skilled at solving puzzles as [Coben] is at devising them.

Myron lay sprawled next to a knee-knockingly gorgeous brunette clad only in a Class-B-felony bikini, a tropical drink sans umbrella in one hand, the aqua clear Caribbean water lapping at his feet, the sand a dazzling white power, the sky a pure blue that could only be God's blank canvas, the sun as soothing and rich as a Swedish masseur with a snifter of cognac, and he was intensely miserable.
