Promise Me - Myron Bolitar, Bk 8
Author: Harlan Coben
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 threatened or been threatened. He hasn't called his friend Win, still the scariest man he knows, to back him up or get him out of trouble. In the past six ye...  more »

Myron Bolitar is back and better than ever.Suspenseful til the end and of course written with Mr. Coben's humourous style and witticism.VERY GOOD!!!

I found Harlan Coben just last year and have read every single book he has on the market. I love his writing and the way he builds his characters. It is an absolute pleasure to read his books in order and see their progression.

originally I thought the sports aspect would be a turn-off for me, but it has so little to do with the story that it didn't bother me at all.

If you're looking for a quick, good, fun read, this is the book for you.

First time I've read one of his books, and I was NOT disappointed! Intrigue, suspense, and good twists. Apparently there are a series of books involving the main character, Myron Bolitar. Can't wait to order more.

Not my favorite by this author, but I do love his writing. It's fast paced, and seems to draw you in. I finished it in two sittings.

Just when I thought I had figured out who did what, I was wrong, all the way to the very end! Great ending. Coben always has good endings in his books. This is Myron Bolitar, main character. Ex-Basketball player fame, now sports agent. This book is about helping his childhood friend and her husband find their daughter, it's never quite clear whether she ran away or was abducted or if she is still alive, but in the end all is revealed.

When Myron Bolitar throws a party with his new girlfriend, he overhears her daughter talking to her friend about getting a ride home with a drunk driver. Myron confronts them, giving them his card and making them promise to call him if they are ever faced with a situation where they or the driver are drunk or high. A few weeks later Myron receives a 2:00 AM call from the friend, Aimee Biel, needing a ride to a friend's house. Myron picks her up on the streets of Manhatten and transports her to a friends house, no questions asked. But the next morning, Myron discovers that Aimee is missing, her parents have called the police, and Myron is now a suspect in her disappearance.

It's been six years since the last Myron Bolitar book and things have changed. His parents have moved to Florida and Myron bought the house he grew up in. His business has expanded. He now represents actors along with sports figures. And he has a new girlfriend. Myron had quit being an amateur detective, but when he finds out that Aimee is missing, he promises her mother that he will bring her daughter home.

I loved the plot of this book; I had a hard time putting it down. All of the gang is back in this story, including two of my favorites, Win and Big Cyndi. The ending was truly a surprise for me. Never saw it coming. My rating: 4 Stars.

This is the first Myron Bolitar novel that I've read and I really liked it. I love his "motley crew", from his best buddy, psychotic Win, to Big Cyndi, a girl you don't want to meet in a dark alley, but definitely want on your side! The wrap-up at the end was a little out there for me, but it did fit I guess, just not what I would have expected. But, it was a great book and I'll be looking for more Myron books!!

I like Coben a lot I read this one pretty quickly. It is like a lot of his books in style of writing, but as usual the story has some twists you definately don't see coming. I definately recommend

Not one of his more interesting ones (in fact, the least compelling of all of the ones that I read), maybe because there isn't the hint of blood oozing from every page.
