Live Wire By Harlan Coben – Book Review #37

Live Wire is the 10th Myron Bolitar book by Harlan Coben. At the time of publishing, there’s only one more book left in the series.

Live Wire

Here’s the blurb from Goodreads:

Book DescriptionSometimes the ugliest truth is better than the prettiest of lies…Product DescriptionMyron Bolitar has always dreamed about a gorgeous femme fatale walking into his office and asking for help. The woman standing in his doorway has killer curves all right: she’s eight months pregnant… Former tennis star Suzze T and her rock star husband, Lex, are both clients – but now Lex has disappeared and a very pregnant Suzze is in tears, fearing the online rumours questioning the baby’s paternity has driven away the man she swears is the child’s father. For Myron, questions of fatherhood couldn’t hit closer to home, as his father clings precariously to life, and the brother who abandoned the family years ago resurfaces – with danger following close behind. Myron is soon forced to confront deep secrets in Suzze’s past, his family’s mortality – and his own

My Thoughts

I enjoyed this 10th book much better than I did the 9th. We finally find out more about Myron’s brother, Brad. He’s only been mentioned a few times in the other books and we didn’t really know anything about him.
I assumed he lived in another part of the country and didn’t get to see his family very often. We find out, however, that this isn’t the case and for some reason, there’s bad blood between Myron and his brother.

This is explained when we are introduced to Myron’s sister-in-law, Kitty, and his nephew, Mickey. Obviously, there’s some history between Myron and Kitty but we don’t find out all the details until later in the book.
Mickey isn’t Myron’s biggest fan either and this book centres a lot on the dynamics of the Bolitar family.

Although it’s not all good news and happy endings, it was good to finally find out more about Mayron’s family and his past.
