The boy was born and raised on the Main Line. But he vanished on Philadelphia's mean streets - last seen in a down-town cheater's hotel. For sports agent Myron Bolitar, his client, superstar Linda Coldren, comes first, and that means unravelling the mystery of her son's kidnapping. But when Myron goes after the missing boy, he crashes through a crowd of low-lifes, blue bloods and liars on both sides of the social divide. And when family skeletons start coming out of the closet, Myron is about to find out how deadly life can get...

Reviewed on 21st December 2012

Sports Agent/Investigator Myron Bolitar takes on his fourth case when a pair of professional golfers take him on to track down something that's been taken from them.

While the style maintains the flippant attitude of the first three books, it feels like things have been toned down a little and some more serious elements introduced. Some of the more grating features of the series are left out and what remains is a good crime novel with a likeable cast.

This is probably the best of the series so far, and has rejuvenated my interest in Coben's writing. I look forward to continuing with the series.
