Review-Fade Away

Fade Away (Myron Bolitar, #3)Fade Away by Harlan Coben

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I thoroughly enjoyed the first two books in the Myron Bolitar series, so I knew I would like this one also. It started off promisingly: Myron is hired by an NBA team to not only find their missing star player, but to also join the team as a player to help him get the inside info from his other teammates. The missing player, Greg, was once an old friend/playing rival of Myron's, until of course Myron's playing career was ended when he was injured during a game.

I'm not a sports fan at all, but the only sport I can tolerate watching is basketball (and Tiger Woods playing golf) so I was glad to see this one center on basketball. I really felt for Myron as he struggled with getting back into the playing groove again.

I do have to admit the story did drag a bit in the middle and I honestly wasn't too interested in the mystery aspect, simply because I was more interested in how Myron would deal with playing ball again. But the ending was really good and shocking and kept me on the edge of my seat. I definitely recommend.

  1. Hi Shellebelle, Hope all is good with you and family. I'm going to place this on my list but it dosent get a star for bump up. thanks for introducing me to another author

  2. Sidne, you must try Harlan Coben. He is one of the best authors.

    Shellabelle, so glad you're catching up in the Myron Bolitar series. I felt for Myron too. Taking this undercover assignment really tested his abilities and past. It was too close for comfort having to play basketball again. Like you, I was more interested in his personal struggle than the mystery itself in FADE AWAY.
