Myron Bolitar might have a slightly dubious past, but he knows how to handle himself and is doing just fine as a sports agent. And then he meets Brenda Slaughter, one of the hottest female sports
stars around. She's gorgeous, funny and single, and also seems to have mislaid her agent.

But when her father disappears, and the Mob starts leaning on her, it soon becomes apparent that potent forces are at work. And the more Myron tries to help, the closer he gets to losing his heart - and his life...

Review:
Brenda Slaughter, the star player of the Women's Professional Basketball Association, is getting threatening phone calls. Norm Zuckerman, owner of the league, convinces sports agent Myron Bolitar to protect Brenda by promising to deliver her as Myron's next big client. Brenda, who claims she doesn't need protection, enlists Myron to find her missing father--the assumed source of the phone calls and Myron's childhood mentor. It looks like a simple family dispute--overprotective father goes off the deep end when daughter decides to go her own way--until Horace Slaughter shows up dead and the police name Brenda as the primary suspect. What unfolds is a 20-year-old scandal, a series of disturbing family secrets, and an unexpected, if not entirely believable, ending. One False Move leads the reader through the dirty underbelly of the sports world. It has a little bit of everything: all-star athletes, dirty cops, corrupt politicians, and hired killers. It's a whirlwind of a story that Coben pulls off seamlessly with quirky but realistic characters and pages full of great one-liners. One False Move is a compelling thriller that no mystery fan should miss. --Mara Friedman
Review:
The world needs to discover Harlan Coben. He's smart, he's funny, and he has something to say. (Michael Connolly)

ONE FALSE MOVE has it all: wonderful characters, a dandy plot, nail-biting suspense, and Harlan Coben's wicked humor. I had a great time! (Susan Isaacs)

Coben deftly manages the tightrope trick of blending wit and humour with genuine poignancy and pain. To borrow a baseball phrase, this is a slam dunk of a book. (Val McDermid)
