Book Review: Promise Me

Mar 11, 2006
Category Books

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.
