Former basketball star Myron Bolitar has barely restarted his agency for sports stars and celebrities when two federal agents walk into his office, asking for answers. Assuming they want to talk about the highly publicized Callister murders—of which he and Win know nothing, other than what's been saturating the news lately—he's stunned when, instead, they demand to know where Greg Downing is.

Greg, a former NBA player-turned-beloved-coach, was an old client of Myron’s, one of his very first. The reason for Myron's surprise is simple: Greg Downing died three years ago.

But according to these federal agents, Greg is still alive—and somehow involved in the Callister case.

Before his death, Greg made some strange money moves, but nothing about his reappearance makes any sense. As Myron and Win investigate, they're also surprised to uncover a seemingly related case where someone was murdered. Then another. And another. Is Greg alive? And if he is, where is he? And ultimately, are they looking for Greg? Or are they looking for a dangerously clever serial killer?

I’ve read the Myron Bolitar series for quite awhile.  It’s been three years since the previous book and maybe ten years since I read the first 10 books in the series.  I have read the Mickey Bolitar series so I stayed up to date. There’s more of the quirky and absurd in Think Twice than I remember from earlier books. All the personal relationships except maybe Win are weird.

Myron and Win are getting older, but are still close, but don’t work quite as closely together. Although Win has a bead on everything all the time, we are mostly getting our point of view from Myron.

There’s been a murder and the DNA found is one of Myron’s clients who he thought was dead.  He’s also the man who married Myron’s first love.  Myron seeks to find out what happened and if Greg is still alive somehow.  The story brings back a lot of details and ties into some previous stories.  I guess Myron gets involved because of who he is but he shouldn’t.

There are plenty of dicey situations for Myron. He sustains some injuries. But he does solve all the murders in the end along with Win.

  1. Oh I like the sound of the DNA coming back to a person believed to be dead! This is an author I’ve been meaning to read for ages but somehow just haven’t. I should pick this one up!
