Book Review: Promise Me
I woke up with a brutal cold yesterday so I spent the day today sleeping, drinking lots of fluids, being pampered by Amy, and reading mental floss. Fortunately, my good friend Jenny_the_bookstore_owner had sent me the publisher proof for Harlan Coben’s latest book Promise Me.
I love Coben’s books – he’s one of my top five mental floss writers (up there with Stephen Frey and Barry Eisler). As a special bonus, Coben revived an old character – Myron Bolitar – and his gang of cohorts including Win, Esperanza, and Big Cindy. Myron is a complex man (and Yoo-hoo lover) – made even more interesting by the six years that have passed since Coben last wrote a book that featured him. While everyone is a little older, their killer instincts – especially Win’s – are as sharp as always. Coben’s promise is a page turner – and he delivers.
Dad – Promise Me is in the mail – you’ll have it in a few days.
