Myron's basketball career was cut off before it started when a pre-season game resulted in a severe knee injury that would ultimately crush his professional NBA dream.

A decade has past, and his basketball rival, Greg Downing, has vanished, and Myron is hired to find him. To do so, Myron is drafted back into the game. As the evidence unravels, Myron learns more than he expected about his rival, his first love, and himself...

Fade Away is the third book in the Myron Bolitar series. Myron is a sports agent and former FBI agent, but ten years ago was a a top NBA draft choice until an serious injury sidelined him in his first preseason game. Myron's former rival, Greg Downing, is now a superstar for the New Jersey Dragons. He's also missing and the owner of the team wants Myron to find him. To do that he gives Myron a place as a substitute on the team. When the trail leads to the bludgeoned corpse of a woman last seen with Greg, Myron, and his best friend and partner, Win, find themselves in real trouble. Win has a penchant for violence and he certainly puts it to use in their investigation.

I enjoyed the plot twists involving Myron’s history and the way he has coped with his disappointment over the years. The writing is suspenseful, at at the same time, laugh out loud funny. The characters are all multi-dimensional, and the secondary characters of Win and Esperanza, are some of the best I've ever seen. Harlan Coben is a master of great storytelling and suspense. Myron is a fascinating character and I look forward to continuing the rest of this highly addictive series. ( )

This is my favorite installment of the Myron Bolitar series. I not only enjoyed the mystery, but also the interaction between Myron and his friends. You truly get to see into Myron's mind. This book got a favorite from me because I loved the ending. It had action, emotion, and even a little revenge!

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0440222680, Mass Market Paperback)

The home was top-notch New Jersey suburban. The living room was Martha Stewart. The basement was Legos—and blood. For sports agent Myron Bolitar, the disappearance of a man he'd once competed against was bringing back memories—of the sport he and Greg Downing had both played and the woman they both loved. Now, among the stars, the wanna-bes, the gamblers and groupies, Myron is unraveling the strange, violent life of a sports hero gone wrong, and coming face-to-face with a past he can't relive, and a present he may not survive.

In novels that crackle with wit and suspense, Edgar Award winner Harlan Coben has created one of the most fascinating and complex heroes in suspense fiction—Myron Bolitar—a hotheaded, tenderhearted sports agent who grows more and more engaging and unpredictable with each page-turning appearance.
