Myron try to find a runaway husband and got into troubleb
Live Wire (Myron Bolitar, #10) - Harlan Coben

Suzze, the former tennis queen, is pregnant his husband Lex the rockstar has runaway after a meannie posted a comment on FB saying the future baby is not his.

 

That's got Myron into trouble, when he run into a club and found the drunk husband and his sister in law Kitty. 

 

The running around bit in reviewing a mystery. Myron almost got a serious beating. Fortunately, he has a Blackberry link to Win and Win comes to save the day. 

 

So, Win is being drawn into the investigation because Myron care so much about his client. 

 

The story is a bit clever and it is fun to read how the pair of non detectives go to get in and out of trouble.

review SPOILER ALERT! 2018-02-15 15:12
The truth is life changing
The Stranger - Harlan Coben

A stranger told Adam the truth about his wife, that she has faked her pregnancy to get him stay in the same town.

 

Adam confronted his wife. Now she is gone and left a text saying she needed some time alone. 

 

Adam, not forgiving his wife, but loves her too much to give up on her chase after his wife.

 

More people were blackmailed for secrets that they don't want anyone to know.

 

Revealing of secrets need maturity, something that these characters lack of right now. 

 

So where is Adam's wife?

 

Now more characters are looking into the secret and secrets teller calling himself the Stranger. 

 

Johanna is a detective who is now helping Adam

 

Good that she is there. More cheats and lies and truth. 

 

Actually, a pretty good story based on truth and lies. Just not totally there as all of the characters lack something that make them more likable. 

 

A solid 4 stars read.

Reading progress update: I've read 145 out of 370 pages.
The Stranger - Harlan Coben Life changing events by the action of a stranger. First, the stranger told Adam that his wife has faked her pregnancy and miscarriage so that he would not relocate to another city. Then, the stranger told the soon to be married bride that the revenge porn was uploaded not by her ex-bf but by her future husband. But why. Is honesty really the best way forward? I like the stranger as he picked to reveal the truth and let the cause of event take place naturally. Another stranger is telling a woman that her daughter is involved in an online prostitution and asked for money. That's should be a different stranger as the style is really different. The story unfold so far has led the readers to believe it is the same person. Nice solid read so far.
