In this first entry in Coben's popular Myron Bolitar mystery series, murders and other felonies can be traced back to moments well before the crimes in question occurred, when people acted in a selfish or hypocritical manner, or one way or another didn't do the right thing. This humanistic approach adds depth to a story that is involving to begin with. Marosz performs capably, delivering sports agent and investigator Bolitar's wisecracks and asides with just the right amount of dry detachment and his more serious pronouncements with the appropriate level of solemnity. Marosz has fun with the upper crust WASP accent of Bolitar's entertaining but deadly partner, Win, and also does well with our hero's secretary Esperanza, a female ex-wrestler of Latin descent.
