Show synopsis *DEAL BREAKER* Investigator and 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. Suddenly Myron is up against the dark side of his business - where image and talent make you rich, but the truth can get you killed. *DROP SHOT* Valerie Simpson is a young female tennis star with a troubled past who's now on the verge of a comeback and wants Myron as her agent. Myron couldn't be happier - he's also got the hottest male tennis star, Duane Richwood, on his books. That is, until Valerie is murdered in broad daylight at the U.S. Open and Myron's number one client becomes the number one suspect. As Myron begins to investigate he uncovers hidden truths and soon realises that these secrets are not only dangerous, they're deadly. *FADE AWAY* Myron Bolitar once had a promising career as a sportsman, until an accident forced him to quit. After a spell in the FBI he now runs his own business. Then Myron is approached to find Greg Downing, a fellow sports star who has vanished, before news of his disappearance gets out. In Greg's house Myron finds blood in the basement. And when he discovers the body of a woman, he begins to unravel the strange, violent world of a national hero gone wrong, as he comes face-to-face with a past he can't re-live, and a present he may not survive.
