robinmy avatar reviewed on + 2045 more book reviews

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.
