“Promises, promises…”

published 22/01/2007

Myron is back after 6 years!

Not necessarily the best one to start on if you've...

The main genre that I read is crime fiction and it wasn't until the last couple of years that I started to read Harlan Coben books. Now I've read most his novels and can't decide on whether I prefer his Myron Bolitar series or his stand alone novels. Most people I have spoken to prefer one or the...

“Never Break a Promise”

They say that a break is good as a rest or something like that and there has been a break of six years since the last time we were able to read about the adventures of Myron Bolitar and his close friends. In t he back of this book Coben explains his reasons behind this gap and the fact that...

“Promises Promises”

published 20/03/2010

One simple promise was all it took. Overhearing the kids talking about the drinking, and the driving home afterwards, Myron Bolitar remembered Debbie Frankl. Debbie was the bright young thing he'd been at school with who didn't get away with it. She was one of the unlucky ones that piled into a...
