This is Myron Bolitar’s second outing in the series. This time he is the agent for a young tennis star: Duane Richwood. Whilst playing at the US open another former tennis star: Valerie Simpson, who was trying to make a comeback is shot. As She had been trying to contact Myron 3 times prior to the shooting he takes a personal interest in trying to find the murderer.
I enjoyed this book just as much, or if not more than the first, although I did quite quickly figure out where the plot was going. It still did not detract. The only part that slightly bothers me in the book is the way Bolitar carries on his relationship with Jessica, he seems to keep her on a pedestal, but in all honesty besides the visual attraction I can’t see much depth to their relationship. Having just read “Along came a spider” I did find it coincidental that a character in this novel was named Alexander Cross.
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this to anyone that enjoys mysterys and thrillers. Enjoy!
