Promise Me by Harlan Coben

Author: Harlan Coben

Genre: Covert operations, thriller, adventure, action

Original Title: Promise Me (Myron Bolitar, #8)

Series: Myron Bolitar #8

Setting: United States

 This book was a random pick and it was my First Harlan Coben book and what a book it was. Like a chocolate that melts when placed in your mouth and the taste grows on you.
Meet Myron Bolitar, the very famous basket ball player from Livingston High school who made to NBA and due to knee injury could get the fame he deserved. There is another side to Myron, a Vigilante, batman like but he doesn’t have the gadgets ,the super hero costume or the batmobile. But what he has is the moral dilemma as akin to Batmans’s (ofcourse not as melodramatic as batman), a will to safe guard the innocent and a psychic, rich, well-trained and well-connected friend Win.

The book begins with the spotting of a missing gal, a 18 year old adult from Livingston high and then goes on to Myron love life, his new found Love’s daughter and her friend, the daughter of one his school days friend. The school year is almost over and the college Hysteria has taken over. Parents and children alike are anxiously trying to get their destinies fixed, get into respected and high profile colleges and obviously kids under pressure commit mistakes, drink, get junkied, drive in such semi-concious state and few end up in tragic accidents.

But Myron is determined to help keep his friends’ children safe, and so he makes two neighborhood girls promise him: If they are ever in a bind but are afraid to call their parents, they must call him. The call comes on a fateful night and he helps one of these girls to the safety of her friend’s house . Thinks change, Myron’s world goes topsy-turvy. The girl goes missing and he is held responsible. TO fight his moral guilt and to keep his promise of safe guarding the girl he brings out his heroics along with this friend Wind to find the girl and there on unfolds the thrilling and fast paced plot.

This is the eight book in the Myron series and facts say that this series has been brought to life after a break of six years. Yes, this is one of the best page turners I have read in last few months and yes, I am going to begin from the start, read all the seven prior adventures of Myron Bolitar and also read other stand alone novels by Harlan Coben.

I suggest you do the same. Hurry, get started.
