Fade Away (Myron Bolitar #3) by Harlan Coben

Book Summery (Via Goodreads): The living room is Martha Stewart. The basement is Legos—and blood. The signs of a violent struggle. For Myron Bolitar, the disappearance of a man he once competed against is bringing back memories—of the sport he and Greg Downing had both played and the woman they both loved. Now, among the stars, the wannabes, the gamblers, and the groupies, Myron is embarking upon the strange ride of a sports hero gone wrong that just may lead to certain death. Namely, his own.

Book Review:
So this book was recommended to me. Admittedly, I'm not a huge mystery fan, so this was a bit out of my comfort zone. Overall, it was a light read with good pacing. I got a bit confused at the end. I feel like Coben rushed the ending and left it a bit muddled. The main character is likable. His best friend/sidekick is pretty bad ass. I enjoyed reading Fade Away and would consider picking up another book by the same author.

Favorite Quote:
“He truly believed that no one could love him, and no matter who you are, that hurts. It made you insecure. It made you want to hide and build fences” 

Cover Art Commentary:
I like the contrast of the colors.
