Product Description

The stunning young adult debut from international bestseller Harlan Coben is now in paperback! Mickey Bolitar’s year can’t get much worse. After witnessing his father’s death and sending his mom to rehab, he’s forced to live with his estranged uncle Myron and switch high schools. Fortunately, he’s met a great girl, Ashley, and it seems like things might finally be improving. But then Ashley vanishes. Mickey follows Ashley’s trail into a seedy underworld that reveals that Ashley isn’t who she claimed to be. And neither was Mickey’s father. Soon Mickey learns about a conspiracy so shocking that it leaves him questioning everything about the life he thought he knew. First introduced to readers in Harlan Coben’s novel Live Wire Mickey Bolitar is as quick-witted and clever as his uncle Myron, and eager to go to any length to save the people he cares about.

This book is being billed as a teen novel, but it will appeal to readers of all ages. The story line is filled with the same clever lines that we all love from Myron, Mickey is a loveable teenager dealing with unimaginable circumstances, and the novel with fun twists and turns that Harlan is known for. This is evidently going to be a new series ~ I cannot wait to read his upcoming books that follow Mickey Bolitar especially his next adventure in Seconds Away, published in the fall of 2012.
