⁁  ⇭ Back Spin online ⁜ Kindle Author Harlan Coben ₋ ⁁ ⇭ Back Spin online ⁜ Kindle Author Harlan Coben ₋ Myron Bolitar used a cardboard periscope to look over the suffocating throngs of ridiculously clad spectators He tried to recall the last time he d actually used a toy periscope, and an image of sending in proof of purchase seals from a box of Cap n Crunch cereal flickered in front him like headache inducing sunspots.Through the mirrored reflection, Myron watched a man dressed in knickers knickers, for crying out loud stand over a tiny white sphere The ridiculously clad spectators mumbled excitedly Myron stifled a yawn The knickered man crouched The ridiculously clad spectators jostled and then settled into an eerie silence Sheer stillness followed, as if even the trees and shrubs and well coiffed blades of grass were holding their collective breath.Then the knickered man whacked the white sphere with a stick.The crowd began to murmur in the indistinguishable syllables of backstage banter As the ball ascended, so did the volume of the murmurs Words could be made out Then phrases Lovely golf stroke Super golf shot Beautiful golf shot Truly fine golf stroke They always said golf stroke, like someone might mistake it for a swim stroke, or as Myron was currently contemplating in this blazing heat a sunstroke.Mr Bolitar Myron took the periscope away from his eyes He was tempted to yell Up periscope, but feared some at stately, snooty Merion Golf Club would view the act immature Especially during the U.S Open He looked down at a ruddy faced man of about seventy.Your pants, Myron said.Pardon me You re afraid of getting hit by a golf cart, right They were orange and yellow in a hue slightly luminous than a bursting supernova To be fair, the man s clothing hardly stood out Most in the crowd seemed to have woken up wondering what apparel they possessed that would clash with, say, the free world Orange and green tints found exclusively in several of your tackiest neon signs adorned many Yellow and some strange shades of purple were also quite big usually together like a color scheme rejected by a Midwest high school cheerleading squad It was as if being surrounded by all this God given natural beauty made one want to do all in his power to offset it Or maybe there was something else at work here Maybe the ugly clothes had a functional origin Maybe in the old days, when animals roamed free, golfers dressed this way to ward off dangerous wildlife.Good theory.I need to speak with you, the elderly man whispered It s urgent.The rounded, jovial cheeks belied his pleading eyes He suddenly gripped Myron s forearm Please, he added.What s this about Myron asked.The man made a movement with his neck, like his collar was on too tight You re a sports agent, right Yes You re here to find clients Myron narrowed his eyes How do you know I m not here to witness the enthralling spectacle of grown men taking a walk The old man did not smile, but then again, golfers were not known for their sense of humor He craned his neck again and moved closer His whisper was hoarse Do you know the name Jack Coldren he asked.Sure, Myron said.If the old man had asked the same question yesterday, Myron wouldn t have had a clue He didn t follow golf that closely or at all , and Jack Coldren had been little than a journeyman over the past twenty years or so But Coldren had been the surprise leader after the U.S Open s first day, and now, with just a few holes remaining in the second round, Coldren was up by a commanding eight strokes What about him And Linda Coldren the man asked Do you know who she is This one was easier Linda Coldren was Jack s wife and far and away the top female golfer of the past decade Yeah, I know who she is, Myron said.The man leaned in closer and did the neck thing again Seriously annoying not to mention contagious Myron found himself fighting off the desire to mimic the movement They re in deep trouble, the old man whispered If you help them, you ll have two new clients.What sort of trouble The old man looked around Please, he said There are too many people Come with me.Myron shrugged No reason not to go The old man was the only lead he d unearthed since his friend and business associate Windsor Horne Lockwood III Win, for short had dragged his sorry butt down here Being that the U.S Open was at Merion home course of the Lockwood family for something like a billion years Win had felt it would be a great opportunity for Myron to land a few choice clients Myron wasn t quite so sure As near as he could tell, the major component separating him from the hordes of other locust like agents swarming the green meadows of Merion Golf Club was his naked aversion for golf Probably not a key selling point to the faithful.Myron Bolitar ran MB SportsReps, a sports representation firm located on Park Avenue in New York City He rented the space from his former college roommate, Win, a Waspy, old money, big time investment banker whose family owned Lock Home Securities on the same Park Avenue in New York Myron handled the negotiations while Win, one of the country s most respected brokers, handled the investments and finances The other member of the MB team, Esperanza Diaz, handled everything else Three branches with checks and balances Just like the American government Very patriotic.Slogan MB SportsReps the other guys are commie pinkos.As the old man ushered Myron through the crowd, several men in green blazers another look sported mostly at golf courses, perhaps to camouflage oneself against the grass greeted him with whispered, How do, Bucky, or Looking good, Buckster, or Fine day for golf, Buckaroo They all had the accent of the rich and preppy, the kind of inflection where mommy is pronounced mummy and summer and winter are verbs Myron was about to comment on a grown man being called Bucky, but when your name is Myron, well, glass houses and stones and all that Like every other sporting event in the free world, the actual playing area looked like a giant billboard than a field of competition The leader board was sponsored by IBM Canon handed out the periscopes American Airlines employees worked the food stands an airline handling food what think tank came up with that one Corporate Row was jam packed with companies who shelled out over one hundred grand a pop to set up a tent for a few days, mostly so that company executives had an excuse to go Travelers Group, Mass Mutual, Aetna golfers must like insurance , Canon, Heublein Heublein What the hell was a Heublein They looked like a nice company Myron would probably buy a Heublein if he knew what one was.The funny thing was, the U.S Open was actually less commercialized than most tourneys At least they hadn t sold their name yet Other tournaments were named for sponsors and the names had gotten a little silly Who could get up for winning the JC Penney Open or the Michelob Open or even the Wendy s Three Tour Challenge The old man led him to a primo parking lot Mercedeses, Caddies, limos Myron spotted Win s Jaguar The USGA had recently put up a sign that read MEMBERS PARKING ONLY.Myron said, You re a member of Merion Dr Deduction.The old man twisted the neck thing into something approaching a nod My family dates back to Merion s inception, he said, the snooty accent now pronounced Just like your friend Win.Myron stopped and looked at the man You know Win The old man sort of smiled and shrugged No commitment.You haven t told me your name yet, Myron said.Stone Buckwell, he said, hand extended Everyone calls me Bucky.Myron shook the hand.I m also Linda Coldren s father, he added.Bucky unlocked a sky blue Cadillac and they slid inside He put the key in the ignition The radio played Muzak worse, the Muzak version of Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head Myron quickly opened the window for air, not to mention noise.Only members were allowed to park on the Merion grounds, so it wasn t too much of a hassle getting out They made a right at the end of the driveway and then another right Bucky mercifully flipped off the radio Myron stuck his head back in the car.What do you know about my daughter and her husband Bucky asked.Not much.You are not a golf fan, are you, Mr Bolitar Not really.Golf is truly a magnificent sport, he said Then he added, Though the word sport does not begin to do it justice.Uh huh, Myron said.It s the game of princes Buckwell s ruddy face glowed a bit now, the eyes wide with the same type of rapture one saw in the very religious His voice was low and awed There is nothing quite like it, you know You alone against the course No excuses No teammate No bad calls It s the purest of activities.Uh huh, Myron said again Look, I don t want to appear rude, Mr Buckwell, but what s this all about Please call me Bucky.Okay Bucky.He nodded his approval I understand that you and Windsor Lockwood are than business associates, he said.Meaning I understand you two go back a long way College roommates, am I correct Why do you keep asking about Win I actually came to the club to find him, Bucky said But I think it s better this way.What way Talking to you first Maybe afterwell, we ll see Shouldn t hope for too much.Myron nodded I have no idea what you re talking about.Bucky turned onto a road adjacent to the course called Golf House Road Golfers were so creative.The course was on the right, imposing mansions on the left A minute later, Bucky pulled into a circular driveway The house was fairly big and made of something called river rock River rock was big in this area, though Win always referred to it as Mainline Stone There was a white fence and lots of tulips and two maple trees, one on each side of the front walk A large porch was enclosed on the right side The car came to a stop, and for a moment neither of them moved.What s this all about, Mr Buckwell We have a situation here, he said.What kind of situation I d rather let my daughter explain it to you He grabbed the key out of the ignition and reached for the door.Why come to me Myron asked.We were told you could possibly help.Who told you that Buckwell started rolling his neck with greater fervor His head looked like it d been attached by a loose ball socket When he finally got it under control, he managed to look Myron in the eyes.Win s mother, he said.Myron stiffened His heart plummeted down a dark shaft He opened his mouth, closed it, waited Buckwell got out of the car and headed for the door Ten seconds later, Myron followed Buckwell nodded That s why I came to you first They followed a brick path to a door slightly ajar Buckwell pushed it open Linda Linda Coldren stood before a television in the den Her white shorts and sleeveless yellow blouse revealed the lithe, toned limbs of an athlete She was tall with short spunky black hair and a tan that accentuated the smooth, long muscles The lines around her eyes and mouth placed her in her late thirties, and he could see instantly why she was a commercial darling There was a fierce splendor to this woman, a beauty derived from a sense of strength rather than delicacy.She was watching the tournament on the television On top of the set were framed family photographs Big, pillowy couches formed a V in one corner Tactfully furnished, for a golfer No putting green, AstroTurf carpet None of that golf artwork that seemed a step or two below the aesthetic class of, say, paintings of dogs playing poker No cap with a tee and ball on the brim hanging from a moose head.Linda Coldren suddenly swung her line of vision toward them, firing a glare past Myron before settling on her father I thought you were going to get Jack, she snapped.He hasn t finished the round yet.She motioned to the television He s on eighteen now I thought you were going to wait for him.I got Mr Bolitar instead.Who.Myron stepped forward and smiled I m Myron Bolitar.Linda Coldren flicked her eyes at him, then back to her father Who the hell is he He s the man Cissy told me about, Buckwell said.Who s Cissy Myron asked.Win s mother Oh Myron said Right.Linda Coldren said, I don t want him here Get rid of him.Linda, listen to me We need help.Not from him.He and Win have experience with this type of thing.Win, she said slowly, is psychotic.Ah, Myron said Then you know him well Linda Coldren finally turned her attention to Myron Her eyes, deep and brown, met his I haven t spoken to Win since he was eight years old, she said But you don t have to leap into a pit of flames to know it s hot.Myron nodded Nice analogy.She shook her head and looked back at her father I told you before no police We do what they say.But he s not police, her father said.And you shouldn t be telling anyone.I only told my sister, Bucky protested She d never say anything.Myron felt his body stiffen again Wait a second, he said to Bucky Your sister is Win s mother Yes.You re Win s uncle He looked at Linda Coldren And you re Win s first cousin.Linda Coldren looked at him like he d just peed on the floor With smarts like that, she said, I m glad you re on our side.Everyone s a wiseass.If it s still unclear, Mr Bolitar, I could break out some poster board and sketch a family tree for you.Could you use lots of pretty colors Myron said I like pretty colors.She made a face and turned away On the television, Jack Coldren lined up a twelve foot putt Linda stopped and watched He tapped it the ball took off and arched right into the hole The gallery applauded with modest enthusiasm Jack picked up the ball with two fingers and then tipped his hat The IBM leader board flashed on the 3 screen Jack Coldren was up by a whopping nine strokes.Linda Coldren shook her head Poor bastard.Myron kept still So did Bucky.He s waited twenty three years for this moment, she continued And he picks now.Myron glanced at Bucky Bucky glanced back, shaking his head.Linda Coldren stared at the television until her husband exited to the clubhouse Then she took a deep breath and looked at Myron You see, Mr Bolitar, Jack has never won a professional tournament The closest he ever came was in his rookie year twenty three years ago, when he was only nineteen It was the last time the U.S Open was held at Merion You may remember the headlines They were not altogether unfamiliar This morning s papers had rehashed it a bit He lost a lead, right Linda Coldren made a scoffing sound That s a bit of an understatement, but yes Since then, his career has been
