Think Twice - a twisty murder mystery develops when a dead man’s DNA turns up at the scene of a double homicide.

Sports agent Myron Bolitar is beyond baffled. His nemesis, former basketball player and NBA coach as well as former client Greg Downing died three years ago. Then how was his DNA found at a recent double-murder scene? The FBI shows up at Myron's office seeking answers. Good guy Myron and his best friend Win Lockwood, who appears to have unlimited financial resources as well as questionable morals, are determined to get to the bottom of this mystery. Did Downing fake his death? Was the DNA planted at the scene? The case is even more complicated based on Myron's history with Greg, who married his ex, Emily. After a pre-wedding tryst, Myron fathered Emily's son Jeremy, who had always regarded Greg as his real father, even after knowing the truth about his biological father. A cast of colorful characters help Myron figure out this strange and murderous puzzle which gets more complicated as other murders take place.

Think Twice is the 12th book in Harlan Coben's popular Myron Bolitar series but it can be read as a standalone. Coben has an enjoyable, conversational writing style. This story has intriguing plot twists with humorous dialogue woven in, balancing all the murder and mayhem. In addition to Myron and Win, the secondary characters are wonderful. Fans of Coben’s other books will be happy to welcome them back including Myron's delightful parents Ellen and Allen, who left New Jersey and now live in a retirement community in Boca Raton and have started to play pickleball. If you're a Coben fan, it's probably already on your list. You won't be disappointed.
