    The school year is almost over. Anxious families await word of college acceptances. In these last pressure-cooker months of high school, some kids will make the all-too-common and all-too-dangerous mistake of drinking and driving. But Myron is determined to help keep his friends' children safe, 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.

    Robert E. Scarcelle says: "Weak Effort"
    "Harlan, PROMISE ME you will NEVER narrate AGAIN!"
    Overall

    My advice to anyone who has enjoyed listening to Scott Brick's narration of Harlan Coben's other Myron Bolitar novels is to take this opportunity to READ, rather than listen to, Promise Me! Coben's writing is almost as good as ever (although after 6 or 7 of them, they are becoming unneccessarily predictable), but why he chose to narrate this book is beyond comprehension. Unlike Scott Brick's amazing ability to equally bring voice to Latina lesbians or aging Mafia Dons, Coben seems to have two voices, his own and another that sounded like Yogi the Bear from the television cartoons of my youth. I kept expecting him to say "I'm smarter than the average Ranger, eh BoBo!".
    If and when there is a next Harlan Coben audible book, it had better have someone of Scott Brick's caliber narrating it if you want the public to purchase it!
    And Harlan, stick to writing!
