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 threatened or been threatened. He hasn't called his friend Win, still the scariest man he knows, to back him up or get him out of trouble. In the past six years, none of his clients have been murdered-a real positive for his business. But all that is about to change. Because of the simple urge to protect two neighborhood high-school girls from the all-too-dangerous and all-too-common mistake of getting in a car with a drunk driver, Myron has them make him a promise: If they are ever in a bind but are afraid to call their parents, they should call him rather than get in a car with someone who's been drinking. 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. Now, in a desperate attempt to fulfill a well-intentioned promise gone nightmarishly wrong, Myron must become a hero again to save a young girl's life.

A very good book; however, it lacks the edge-of-your-seat intrigue that his other novels have.

Average story with a suprise ending,BUT The characters are so interesting and funny, that you would want to read the book just for that reason.

He writes a good story. Not the world shattering kind but that which affects the average person. Good character developement and a plot which starts slow and gathers to illegal speeds. Promise me is about making a friends daughter promise to call him if she is ever in need of a drive rather than go with a drunk driver. One day she calls, he drives and drops her off at a friends place and then she disappears. He then feels obligated to find her and trouble follows

Myron Bolitar returns in this fast paced and witty page turner about the sports agent turned detective. Myron, always a bit of a softie, finds that his well intentioned promises turns dangerous as he is caught up in one situation after another that all seem to turn deadly. This book is truly a good way to spend an afternoon getting away from it all and you won''t want to put it down until you get to the surprising conclusion.
