This book caught my attention from the start. I enjoyed Mickey's voice - he was slightly nerdy but at the same time caring and self-deprecating. I also liked his two friends Spoon and Ema. The book was a quick read with suspense and action aplenty. Can't wait for the next book in the series. ( )

This was a real surprise. I've enjoyed Coben's Myron Bolitar books but this is by far the best book I've read by him. It was a complex plot, used good vocabulary and didn't have the gratuitous sex that are in Coben's adult books. ( )

Pretty good action and story, I really enjoyed the characters Ema, & Spoon, they have to solve a mystery. Nick Podehl in my opinion does a fantastic job with all the different voices and really brings life to all the characters. Hadn't realized this was the first of a series until I started listening to the second book. My first by Harlan Coben & made me thirsty for more! Will have to check out Live Wire soon. ( )

A young adult debut from internationally bestselling author Harlan Coben

Mickey Bolitar's year can't get much worse. After witnessing his father's death and sending his mom to rehab, he's forced to live with his estranged uncle Myron and switch high schools.

A new school comes with new friends and new enemies, and lucky for Mickey, it also comes with a great new girlfriend, Ashley. For a while, it seems like Mickey's train-wreck of a life is finally improving - until Ashley vanishes without a trace. Unwilling to let another person walk out of his life, Mickey follows Ashley's trail into a seedy underworld that reveals that this seemingly sweet, shy girl isn't who she claimed to be. And neither was Mickey's father. Soon, Mickey learns about a conspiracy so shocking that it makes high school drama seem like a luxury - and leaves him questioning everything about the life he thought he knew.

First introduced to readers in Harlan Coben's latest adult novel, Live Wire, Mickey Bolitar is as quick-witted and clever as his uncle Myron, and eager to go to any length to save the people he cares about. With this new series, Coben introduces an entirely new generation of fans to the masterful plotting and wry humor that have made him an award-winning, internationally bestselling, and beloved author.

Follow Mickey Bolitar on his next adventure in Seconds Away, coming out in Fall 2012!
