Brenda Slaughter is no damsel in distress. Myron Bolitar is no bodyguard. But Myron has agreed to protect the bright, strong, beautiful basketball star. And he's about to find out if he's man enough to unravel the tragic riddle of her life.

Twenty years before, Brenda's mother deserted her. And just as Brenda is making it to the top of the women's pro basketball world, her father disappears too. A major New York sports agent with a foundering love life. Myron has a professional interest in Brenda. Then it develops into a personal one. But between them isn't just the difference in backgrounds or the colour of their skin. Between them is a chasm of corruption and lies, a vicious young mafioso on the make, and one secret that some people are dying to keep - and others are killing to protect...

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:
'One False Move is another example of [Coben's] powerfully wrought writing.' Barry Forshaw, Publishing News "Coben lifts his thriller into classier company by chewing over some serious race and gender issues... A+ entertainment" DAILY MIRROR, 12/12/03 "Gripping, high-octane thiller" WOMAN AND HOME 'Coben invests his realistic portrayals of major league sports with entertaining displays of mayhem and feisty New Jersey stylings. In Bolitar, Coben has a charismatic fast-talker who can deal the punches just as efficiently as the wisecracks. Entertaining.' INK MAGAZINE, January 04 'Coben's dialogue races along, while the American settings have a pungency that leaps off the page. Focused, plausible and detailed.' GOOD BOOK GUIDE, 01/01/04 'Coben has a unique kind of genius that's rare, in the thriller genre. He laces his narrative and dialogue with killer irony and sarcastic black humour, without detracting from the teeth-clenching suspense that kicks off right from page one. If you like your books edgy and with a sardonic twist, whatever you do, don't miss this one.' DAILY RECORD, 10/01/04
