Plot Summary
Deal Breaker is the first novel in the Myron Bolitar series by author Harlan Coben.  Myron Bolitar is a sports agent with MBSportsReps.  He is trying to negotiate a new contract for one of his clients, Christian.  Christian then receives a package in the mail from a magazine which has a picture of a girl who Christian was dating and who went missing in one of the advertising magazines.  The missing girl also happens to be the sister of Myron's ex-girlfriend who has recently come back to New York to investigate her sister's disappearance.  Despite the length of time Myron investigates and gets drawn into a sleazy underworld.  On top of that he has to try and deal with gangsters who are trying to muscle in on his business and have put a hit out on him

My Review
At first glance this is one of those what in the hell detective fiction novels.  A sports agent turned detective seems to be a little far fetched even by crime fiction standards but stick with it.  Harlan does infer that Myron has a past working for the FBI on classified cases so he has some knowledge in the area.

This book is not a fast all action page turner until it needs to be.  Harlan draws you in with a plot line that is excellent and has a kick in the tale at the end.  Just when you think Myron appears to be a little out of his depth up pops the highly amusing character of his best friend Win who helps Myron get out of trouble.  Coben gradually increases the plot to keep you reading although there are a number of red-hearings along the way.
