And just as Brenda is making it to the top of the women's pro basketball world, her father disappears too. A major New York sports agent with a foundering love life. Myron has a professional interest in Brenda. Then it develops into a personal one. But between them isn't just the difference in backgrounds or the colour of their skin.

Review quote

'One False Move is another example of [Coben's] powerfully wrought writing.' Barry Forshaw, Publishing News "Coben lifts his thriller into classier company by chewing over some serious race and gender issues... A+ entertainment" DAILY MIRROR, 12/12/03 "Gripping, high-octane thiller" WOMAN AND HOME 'Coben invests his realistic portrayals of major league sports with entertaining displays of mayhem and feisty New Jersey stylings. In Bolitar, Coben has a charismatic fast-talker who can deal the punches just as efficiently as the wisecracks. Entertaining.' INK MAGAZINE, January 04 'Coben's dialogue races along, while the American settings have a pungency that leaps off the page. Focused, plausible and detailed.' GOOD BOOK GUIDE, 01/01/04 'Coben has a unique kind of genius that's rare, in the thriller genre. He laces his narrative and dialogue with killer irony and sarcastic black humour, without detracting from the teeth-clenching suspense that kicks off right from page one. If you like your books edgy and with a sardonic twist, whatever you do, don't miss this one.' DAILY RECORD, 10/01/04show more
