5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Best Thriller Writers Around, 4 Aug 2007
This review is from: Promise Me (Paperback)
Harlan Coben continues to prove that he is one of the best thriller writers around at the moment. A page turner is a much used phrase but in this case it is really appropriate. The author's books are always so well structured and his character's well rounded. He is obviously comfortable with his style and ability and this transmits itself to the reader making the reading of his books sheer pleasure from start to finish. Coben has now got a string of best selling crime novels behind him and all I can say is that I hope he continues to write for many years to come. The author lives in New Jersey with his wife and four children.

It has been an unsually quiet period for sports agent Myron Bolitar. In fact in the last six years very little has happened to take him out of his comfort zone. He has not taken a punch, fired a gun, in anger anyway, and his clients have managed to stay alive, a big plus in his line of work.

But of course nothing lasts forever. By trying to do the right thing and protect two neighbourhood teenage girls from the all too dangerous and common mistake of getting into a car with a driver who has been drinking, Myron has the girls promise him that if they are ever in trouble and afraid to call their parents, they should call him instead. Little does he know what he has let himself in for.

Sure enough several nights later a call comes through in the early hours and true to his promise myron picks up one of the girls and drop her in a quiet cul-de-sac where she says a friend lives. The following day the girl's parents discover their daughter is missing and Myron was the last person to see her . . .
