Harlan Coben, a talented writer of mysteries for adults, whose main character is Myron Bolitar, has written a trio of young adult books, starring Mickey Bolitar, Myron’s nephew. The same intense pace is there, and Mickey has the gift of basketball, just like his uncle. (Enjoy those passages you basketball fans!) Problems seem to follow the Bolitar family, and, in the second novel, Mickey gets involved in rescuing some threatened teens, while pursuing a clue that has something to do with his dead father. You have to read these books. I was unable to put all three down until I’d finished each one. Enjoy. Recommended by Julie.
From internationally bestselling author Harlan Coben comes this first action-packed installment of his bestselling Mickey Bolitar series.
