The debut of Myron Bolitar, a hotheaded, tenderhearted sports agent and one of the most fascinating and complex heroes in suspense fiction,Deal Breaker is a page-turning classic from Edgar Award-winner and master storyteller Harlan Coben.

"One of the most engaging heroes in mystery fiction."-Dennis Lehane

Sports agent Myron Bolitar is poised on the edge of the big time. So is Christian Steele, a rookie quarterback and Myron's prized client. But when Christian gets a phone call from a former girlfriend-a woman who everyone, including the police, believes is dead-the deal starts to go sour. Trying to unravel the truth about a family's tragedy, a woman's secret, and a man's lies, Myron is up against the dark side of his business-where image and talent make you rich, but the truth can get you killed.

"What sets Harlan Coben above the crowd are wit and wicked nonchalance."-Los Angeles Times

Tell No One, Coben's first stand alone novel, was released as a film in France in 2006.

Tell No One was directed by Guillaume Canet (Mon Idole), and features an all-star cast including Kristin Scott Thomas (Gosford Park), Nathalie Baye (Catch Me If You Can), and Marie-Josée Croze (Munich). The movie will be released in theaters in the US in the summer of 2008.
