BACK SPIN, by Harlan Coben

4/series. There are at least 15 novels starring Myron Bolitar, this one published in 1997. What does this mean to you? You've got a lot of great reading in store! Coben has created one of those enduring human characters, a mensch in Bolitar's parlance. Myron's a good man often placed in impossible circumstances. Fortunately, his darker side is easily taken care of by his ice-in-the-blood best friend Win, a Main Line Philadelphia aristocrat with sociopathic tendencies. This novel takes place in the rarified world of pro golf, during a finals match between a rising young star and a has-been who's showing the world his rejuvenated stuff. Bolitar, called in to find the older golfer's missing son, is soon sucked into a multi-generational slugfest. No spolers. Read. You'll thank me. And please do. A 5.
