All that is about to change...because of a promise.
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.
Several nights later, the call comes at 2:00 am, and true to his word, Myron picks up one of the girls in midtown Manhattan and drives her to a quiet cul-de-sac in New Jersey where she says her friend lives.
The next day, the girl's parents discover that their daughter is missing. And that Myron was the last person to see her. Desperate to fulfill a well-intentioned promise turned nightmarishly wrong, Myron races to find her before she's gone forever. But his past will not be buried so easily - for trouble has always stalked him, and his loved ones often suffer. Now Myron must decide once and for all who he is and what he will stand up for if he is to have any hope of saving a young girl's life.

I loved them all until they changed the narrator.
Not anymore of his if he narrates or Steven Weber narrates.
It was horrible! Completely changed the characters. I couldn't get past the first hour.
Excellent book. I love all the "Myron" books and wasn't dissappointed. However... the narrator is different from all the other audio books in this series. It definitely made a difference. This narrator lacks the personality and sarcasim you love with Win and Myron.
I love Harlan Coben books and love them read by Jonathon Marosz. Corbin read this book himself and I did not enjoy it near as much. Character Voices not discernible and his Win voice was awful. There are three more books to go in the series and I don't know that I will listen to them without Jonathon Marosz narrating!
Very good story and Mr Coben is very good at characterisation plotting and suspense. He should leave the 'performance 'part to others though as he is not a great narrator and the New York type accent is hard on the ear to we Brits.
And Buffalo George
Well constructed book with lots of twists and turns in the plot. Characters continue to develop in this, the 8th in the series. Sidekick, Win, shines again here as Myron gets knocked around a little while searching for a lost girl. Who would ever name a kid: Myron?
I've really enjoyed all the Myron Bolitar books but I didn't like this narration at all. I couldn't wait to finish the book just so I wouldn't have to listen to Harlan Coben's voice any longer. What was he thinking!?
Mr. Corbin stick to writing and never ever narrate any more of your books. I loved the banter between the characters which much was due to the narration. None of that was included because of the narrator. What possessed you??!!!
Great book, outstanding story. I loved it! However the performance did not do it justice. I have bought and listened to all of these in order and I loved the difference in Win and Esperanza, big cindy's voice. Mr. Coban didn't exactly hit it out if the park. Siery
dad, husband, just a guy
Probably not. liked the plot. The plot kept me interested. After reading reviews, i say ignore them.
No the plot didn't keep me on edge. But it was suspensive and had alot of curves.
It was hard at first given the author read the story. But it was ok and I like it.
There were bad moment that stressed me out. But I'll not give it away. listen to the book. Its good.
