I had a huge problem with this book.....I liked the pace and the story was good.....but I just can't stand Myron Bolitar. A friend gave me several Harlan Coben novels, and I've heard Promise Me was a great read. It was a good read, the search for Katie and Aimee, two high school girls that are missing under similar circumstances. They attend the same school and used the same ATM after their disapperence.......the end was pretty good, but I'm going to have to learn to like Myron if I keep reading Coben. ( )

Harlan Coben didn't disappoint. I think this is one of my favorite Myron thrillers...lots of twists, turns, and is she or isn't she.

When a friend's daughter disappears after Myron drops her off a friend's house, only to later learn that the location wasn't her friend's house...Myron sets to make things right, and find her before it's too late... ( )

Book Description
New York Times bestselling author Harlan Coben returns with PROMISE ME--a searing new thriller and a story of how far we will go to protect our own….

It has been six years since entertainment agent Myron Bolitar last played superhero. In six years he hasn’t thrown a punch. He hasn’t held, much less fired, a gun. He hasn’t called his friend Win, still the scariest man he knows, to back him up or get him out of trouble.
All that is about to change...because of a promise.

The school year is almost over. Anxious families await word of college acceptances. In these last pressure-cooker months of high school, some kids will make the all-too- common and all-too-dangerous mistake of drinking and driving. But Myron is determined to help keep his friends’ children safe, and so he makes two neighborhood girls promise him: If they are ever in a bind but are afraid to call their parents, they must call him.

Several nights later, the call comes at 2:00 am, and true to his word, Myron picks up one of the girls in midtown Manhattan and drives her to a quiet cul-de-sac in New Jersey where she says her friend lives.

The next day, the girl’s parents discover that their daughter is missing. And that Myron was the last person to see her. Desperate to fulfill a well-intentioned promise turned nightmarishly wrong, Myron races to find her before she’s gone forever. But his past will not be buried so easily - for trouble has always stalked him, and his loved ones often suffer. Now Myron must decide once and for all who he is and what he will stand up for if he is to have any hope of saving a young girl’s life.

My Review
This book was a bit different from Coben's other Myron Bolitar books because Myron is the main character. The plot was intricate, witty and suspenseful which makes for a great mystery read. From the beginning, I was hooked and the twists and turns kept me guessing right up to the surprise ending. I would have to say that I think this is Coben's best Myron Bolitar book. I would highly recommend this book if you like laugh-out-loud suspense mysteries and I look forward to reading his next Bolitar book. ( )

A book that wS interesting, exciting and for me the first with the Bolitar-gang.
I liked it a lot. Like I said, it was exciting and apart fron that gad an ending that surprised me, always something I like when reading a thriller.
Recommended! ( )

Well constructed book with lots of twists and turns in the plot. Characters continue to develop in this, the 8th in the series. Sidekick, Win, shines again here as Myron gets knocked around a little while searching for a lost girl. Who would ever name a kid: Myron? ( )

Epigraph
Dedication
For Charlotte, Ben, Will and Eve. You're a handful, but you will always be my world.
First words
The missing girl-there had been unceasing news reports, always flashing to that achingly ordinary school portrait of the vanished teen, you know the one, with the rainbow-swirl background, the girl's hair too straight, her smile too self-conscious, then a quick cut to the worried parents on the front lawn, microphones surrounding them, Mom silently tearful, Dad reading a statement with a quivering lip-that girl, that missing girl, had just walked past Edna Skylar.
