Most of his books center around sports figures, and in Deal Breaker we meet rookie quarterback Christian Steele. Christian, Myron’s top client, receives a phone call from a former girlfriend of his who is thought to be dead. This puts Myron in an uncomfortable situation as he tries to unravel a mystery that could cost him his life.
Coben’s books are always sprinkled with a sarcastic type of humor that I find appealing, but suspense is always in the forefront of his tales. The secondary characters in this series are actually the stars, and I would love to invite them all to my house for a barbecue.
While this might not be the best book you read this year, if you never read a book in this series then it is a good place to start. You will meet the characters and can rest assured that they only get better from here.
