Promise Me by Harlan Coben
This was a high-action thriller that was hard to put down. Coben lives in Ridgewood, NJ, and he writes about areas of New Jersey that I am familiar with. It's fun when I'm reading along and all of a sudden I realize I know exactly what intersection he is talking about. This is the first Myron Bolitar novel I've read -- although I have read several of his earlier standalone thrillers -- and I enjoyed it quite a bit, though as usual with books of this type, I found myself skipping over the really violent bits.
