About this deal
On New York's Upper West Side, a recluse is found murdered in his penthouse apartment, alongside two objects of note: a stolen Vermeer painting and a leather suitcase bearing the initials WHL3. For the first time in years, the authorities have a lead not only on Patricia's kidnapping but also on another FBI cold case - with the suitcase and painting both pointing them towards one man.

Bolitar's longest known relationship was with Jessica Culver, until she dumped him and walked out of his life. The novel Deal Breaker brings the ex-lovers face-to-face after not seeing each other for four years. It is clear in the book's storyline that he still harbors feelings for Jessica, to the disgust of Esperanza, who dislikes Jessica for the way she treats Myron. They start seeing each other but break up again in the novel One False Move, when Myron almost cheats on her with Brenda Slaughter. It is also revealed in the novel that Culver had cheated on Myron with Doug. Jessica marries Stone Norman in Promise Me.I morning I happened to be watching one of the early TV talk shows and he was being interviewed by a well known female cast member. She was extolling how excited she was after reading the opening paragraph to his new book, ” Tell No One”.
Myron is a great agent that most clients love. He cares about them and helps them not only in work-related issues but also on a personal level when they need aid. These personal cases turn him into an accidental detective since there is a lot of investigative work he does in the books.
Coben is currently developing 14 projects, including Run Away, with Netflix in the US and internationally. Dex, Robert (16 March 2021). "Win by Harlan Coben review". standard.co.uk . Retrieved 17 June 2021. What Coben does best is take readers into his characters’ hearts and minds. His protagonists are just common folks, minding their own business when—bam!—they are drawn into a terrifying world of sordid crimes and mayhem. (USA Today)
All across the USA, people are showing up dead. The deaths don't appear to be connected in any way until one particular death occurs and gets the Secretary of Defense's attention. He arranges for a task force to investigate. Esperanza is introduced in the first book of the series, Deal Breaker, as one of Myron Bolitar's best friends, who works with him at MB SportsReps. Because Win is our narrator, the thoughts, the words and the phrasing readers are offered are all his and he’s a witty, warm and honest host. He’s certainly one of my favourite characters—offering delicious thoughts and observations—I’ve met for some time.On top of that, once the dead man is identified, a third case is brought into the mix. It’s an old case, resulting from a peace protest in the early 1970s. A group (later known as the James Street Six) planned to burn down a hall before a USO dance. The hall was empty but their actions inadvertently resulted in bus accident that killed seven people. The six protesters fled and all but one disappeared. I am currently reading ‘The boy from the woods’ however in the late 80’s whilst on holiday in New Zealand I was fortunate to read a book about a young boy found in the woods. I cannot recall the title but it was published by Hodder and Strouten, I wonder if that young boy is Wilde and if that book is available today.
