Description of this Book

Myron returns from a sabbatical (recovering from the events of ONE FALSE MOVE) to investigate the murder of a client - a troubled New York Yankees baseball player called Clu Haid. Clu was apparently shot by Esperanza Diaz, who just happens to be Myron's best friend and partner in the sport's agency. Esperanza is hiding something, but Myron isn't sure if it has to do with her job, or with her private life. His search for the truth takes him back to a shabby incident from his own past, and to times he would rather forget. THE FINAL DETAIL is classic Harlan Coben - powerful, moving and ultimately shocking. It tells of what a friend can sacrifice and how hard it is to save those you love - particularly from themselves...

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review Coben produces his usual mix of hard-boiled crime and wise-guy humour... with Bolitar, it's the mayhem that keeps the pages turning. -- Andrea Henry DAILY MIRROR, 17 December Just an everyday tale of normal law-abiding, cross-dressing psychotic New Yorkers. THE GUARDIAN 'Digested Read', 3 January 05 An outstanding success. This is a grand, rollicking read full of refreshing, new-style writing, snappy one-liners and clever repartee. In terms of plot, Coben cannot be faulted. You might fail to spot whodunit and, when all is revealed, feel genuine surprise and deight. If you read only one American novel this year, make sure that it is this one. SUNDAY EXPRESS, 20 Feb Coben handles a large cast with skill. Entertaining -- Philip Nolan IRELAND ON SUNDAY, 23 Jan Coben, as ever, takes us on a gritty, pungent journey into some of the less savoury byways of human behaviour; a journey shot through with sardonic humour and trenchant observation. -- Barry Forshaw THE INDEPENDENT, 14 Feb Another hit. -- Alex Gordon PETERBOROUGH EVENING TELEGRAPH, 15 Jan
