Myron Bolitar, sports agent and reluctant sleuth, is happily basking in the Caribbean sun with a beautiful woman he hardly knows. Interrupting this bliss, Win, his loyal but morally questionable sidekick, arrives to tell him that Esperanza, Myron's best friend and partner at MB SportsReps, has been arrested for the murder of a fallen baseball star and Bolitar client.
Myron returns to the city immediately to prove Esperanza's innocence, against her wishes. And as he tries to unearth a killer amid a tangled trail of lies, Myron's own investigation points to only one other suspect: himself, as this spellbinding novel twists, jolts, and careens toward its dazzling finish.
