Promise Me

Cover of 'Promise Me'I received a copy of Promise Me by Harlan Coben for my birthday, and finally got around to reading it this week. It’s the most recent novel in his Myron Bolitar series (number seven!), and it’s right up there with the rest of them.

With the latest novel, there have been a fair few changes to Myron’s life—personally and professionally—when we meet him, but there’s still the same old Bolitar wit in there. The usual characters—Win, Esperanza, Big Cindy, ElAl—still feature, which pleased me greatly. The story is as one has come to expect from Coben: lots of twists, great dialogue, and a compelling problem to solve.

So. If you’re a fan of Coben (and Bolitar) you will like this. If you’ve not read him before, stop fannying around and go grab the first Bolitar story (Deal Breaker in case you’re wondering).


  1. You're right… Promise me was a great read.Duffbert#
  2. Yep, just got into Coben in the last month. Read Deal Breaker in one sitting practically, just finished Drop Shot and ordered the next 5 books for my next fix.AJP#
  3. I love Harlan Coben. I would read the phone book if it had his name on it! He just contributed an op-ed piece to the NY Times the other day:

    And apparently Tell No One has been made into a movie… in France. Strom#
  4. Add me to the list that really enjoy Coben's books. The good thing about starting the series now, is that you have a nice catalogue of books to go through, so that the wait for the next one isn't too bad.Gregg Eldred#
