Disappointing; not like his stand alones

I have read many of Harlan Coben’s books, all stand alones. I have never not finished one..until now. I could not finish this book. I really tried. I got about a third of the way through before I finally gave up. It’s not at all like his stand alones. It’s slow, quite boring, and there are no likable characters. There’s no suspense, no thrilling turn of events. The main character, Myron, is such an arrogant jerk. I was so excited to read this series but this book was disappointing in so many ways. I will not be continuing with the series and will stick with Coben’s stand alones.

As best as a mystery novel can offer

This is the 1st Myron Bolitar book I read, and beyond my satisfaction, this is a superb book. Not only it offers sufficient twist and suspense to the end of the book, the characterization, humour, romance are perfectly blended in a page turner. It is sometimes shock, sometimes hilarious, sometimes violent and sometimes sexy. Absolutely highly recommended and one of the best in the genre. I am now having a new series of books waiting for me to read, together with Alex Cross and Lincoln Rhyme and Harry Bosch series.

I Love this book. Real page turner

I couldn't put this book down. I loved the plot and Myron Bolitar and his supporting cast. This book takes you for a fast and wonderful ride. Deal Breaker was an emotional roller coaster, and I felt all the pain and joy they did. I was so engrossed, I read it in a day. I thought this book was incredible. No other words can express it. I absolutely loved this book. The author has a great gift in his ability to develop characters.

Read This Book, Or You'll Be "Squirrel Lunch"

You have to read the book to get the humor in my review title...The first in the "Myron Bolitar" series, DEAL BREAKER is the perfect start. Bolitar, a college basketball star turned sports' agent,... has just landed his best prospect, rookie quarterback, Christian Steele. While negotiating his contract, Christian gets a phone call from his assumed-to-be-dead fiance... Throw in a mob contract on Myron's head, and you have one entertaining read.The storyline is forever twisting, but Coben never suspends reality. The plot is always believable and never farfetched. Each character is incredibly well-developed, and the group meshes together quite well. This first book serves to introduce this wonderful cast of people that will be in other "Bolitar" books.What makes Coben's books so enjoyable is the dialogue between the characters. Myron is incredibly witty, and he clearly rubs off on all the other characters in the book. It adds a much greater human element to the novel, which allows the cogent storyline to develop exceptionally well, and keep the reader forever guessing. This is an excellent book that was truly hard to put down. The writing is sensational, and it is quite clear that Coben puts a lot of thought into each storyline. The suspense, alone, is great, making the book that much better.

Good Deal!

I recently discovered Coben with One False Move, which was so good I promptly picked up the rest of the series. And Deal Breaker is just as good if not better. A fast pace, exciting and twisting plot, hillarious wit, and intriguing characters make for a fantastic read. Myron is a great lead character, and Win is the perfect sociopathic sidekick. The sleazy bad guys are great too. Deal Breaker is an outstanding mystery that will also leave you laughing out loud at times. My only concern is what I'll do when I have finished the whole series. I can't wait for the newest installment.
