Promise Me (Myron Bolitar #8) by Harlan Coben

Promise Me

The school year is almost over. 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 that if they are ever in a bind but are afraid to call their parents, they will call him.

Several nights later, the call comes at two a.m. The next day, a girl is missing, and Myron is the last person who saw her. Desperate to fulfill a well-intentioned promise turned horribly wrong, Myron races to find her before she’s gone forever.

I was worried that the Myron Bolitar series would start going downhill after the 5th novel. Even though I thought it was looking that way, Coben’s 8th novel of the series turns things around and I really enjoyed it.

Myron Bolitar is quite the character all of his own. He was going towards a career in the NBA, when a knee injury took him out before he could play his first NBA game. He switched gears and became a sports agent and later goes on solving murders and kidnappings. I love Myron and his relationship with all of the main cast (Win, Esperanza and Big Cyndi). I wish the novel had more of Myron’s parents and not just one brief scene.

I really enjoyed the mystery, even though, it started off a bit tame – teenage girl goes missing/runs away. Once the novel got to the half way point, it really picks up and I didn’t see the reveal coming at all.

4 calculators out of a potential 5. If you are looking for mystery series with lots of humour, you need to check out this series!
