PI and sports agent Myron Bolitar swore his basketball days were done. When an old rival disappears, however, Myron can’t resist being pulled back in. Stakes increase when Myron’s investigation turns up a woman’s murder. What happened and how is it connected with Myron’s past?
Myron is sarcastic about everything including himself. He shares the story with interesting characters: his ‘psycho yuppie’ partner, his ex-wrestler secretary, and various suspects/information sources. Myron encounters the underbelly of himself and the sports world. The pieces of the story are like a Rubik’s Cube: they have to be rotated and examined in different ways but they fit together. Fade Away could be a good match for those looking for a sarcastic main character, a PI story, and/or a sports mystery.
