Baker & Taylor
After six years of relative peace from the more physically demanding aspects of his career, entertainment agent Myron Bolitar offers a ride home to a young girl to prevent her from accepting a ride from a drunk driver, but when the girl disappears, he is forced to rescue her to prove his innocence. By the author of No Second Chance. 400,000 first printing.

Blackwell North Amer
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 ever get 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.

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.
