Publisher's Summary

It has been six years since entertainment agent Myron Bolitar last played superhero. In six years he hasn't thrown a punch. He hasn't held, much less fired, a gun. He hasn't called his friend Win, still the scariest man he knows, to back him up or get him out of trouble.

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.

What the Critics Say

"Harlan Coben is the modern master of the hook-and-twist - luring you in on the first page, only to shock you on the last." (Dan Brown)

    "Bring back Marosz"
    Would you try another book from Harlan Coben and/or Harlan Coben?

    I cannot listen to anymore Myron Bolitar books without Marosz


    Would you recommend Promise Me to your friends? Why or why not?

    The book is OK but the narration is bad


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    It just didn't seem like a Myron Bolitar book without Marosz,

    "WHY did Mr. Coben ruin with narrating his own book"
    Would you try another book from Harlan Coben and/or Harlan Coben?

    I loved them all until they changed the narrator.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Not anymore of his if he narrates or Steven Weber narrates.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    It was horrible! Completely changed the characters. I couldn't get past the first hour.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    no.

    "Great Read"

    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.

    Story
    "The Performance brings in down."

    I like was really enjoying this series, but then the author decided to read his own book. This is a mistake to me, because as the reader, the audience, I already identify the characters with the previous narrator. Instead of settling in to enjoy characters I'd come to love, I had to endure this voice change. It was very frustrating.

    "If wishes were Win..."

    Wish it was read by previous narrator of other Bolitar books...sorry Mr. Coben...stick to your writing!...and the whole fulfilling a promise theme just doesn't sit well in the midst of adolescent angst...I didn't care what happened to these stupid girls by the end.

    "Great story"

    This book was great. I would never have figured out the ending. It is unique, yet not far fetched.

    "Terrible narration"

    The terrible narration overshadows the good story. If I could go back I would have read this one in paperback. I cannot stress how truly terrible the narration is.

    "Another great Myron Bolivar book"

    Harmon, love you as an author. As a narrator? Not so much! Keep the Myron books coming!
