Tell No One | [Harlan Coben]

Tell No One

For Dr. David Beck, the loss was shattering. And every day for the past eight years, he has relived the horror of what happened. The gleaming lake. The pale moonlight. The piercing screams. The night his wife was taken. The last night he saw her alive. But now a message has appeared on his computer, a phrase only he and his wife know. "Non-stop action with plot twists galore," says best selling author Philip Margolin.

Publisher's Summary

For Dr. David Beck, the loss was shattering. And every day for the past eight years, he has relived the horror of what happened. The gleaming lake. The pale moonlight. The piercing screams. The night his wife was taken. The last night he saw her alive.

Everyone tells him it's time to move on, to forget the past once and for all. But for David Beck, there can be no closure. A message has appeared on his computer, a phrase only he and his dead wife know. Suddenly Beck is taunted with the impossible - that somewhere, somehow, Elizabeth is alive.

Beck has been warned to tell no one. And he doesn't. Instead, he runs from the people he trusts the most, plunging headlong into a search for the shadowy figure whose messages hold out a desperate hope. But already Beck is being hunted down. He's headed straight into the heart of a dark and deadly secret - and someone intends to stop him before he gets there.

    "hard to put down, enjoyable"

    I really enjoyed this book because it was filled with many twists and turns from the beginning all the way till the unexpected ending. Besides the unpredictability of this story, another thing that made this title enjoyable to me was that the computer activities, like the use of email were actually feasible. This was my first title by this author and I found it to be difficult to put down until I had finished it.

    "Travel 5 Hours Into the Future . . . Instantly"

    This one is FAST. We're talking TIME TRAVEL fast. Turn the thing on, start listening to the exceptional voice of the narrator, and WHAM! - next thing you know you're 5 hours in the future, with very little idea of how you got there besides a slightly elevated heart rate, a slightly sore rear end and a somewhat dazed appreciation for the way this Coben guy managed to make you keep reading page after page without even thinking about the passing of time. OVERALL RATING: 5 solid stars. NARRATOR: Creme of the crop - 5 stars. STORY/PLOT: He took a little creative license, but he used it well - 5 stars. PACE: breakneck - 5 stars. CHARACTERS: 3 1/2 stars (OK, so they're not all fully fleshed out characters, but who cares? You just want to find out what happens to them next). DIALOGUE: Clever, well-written and extremely zippy. Excellent dialogue is the propellant that makes this book go so fast - 5 stars. WILL I REMEMBER THE PLOT OR CHARACTERS A YEAR FROM NOW? It's a bit disposable, not terribly deep, so maybe not. But in a thriller that isn't so bad: I figure I can enjoy it all over again in a year or so because I'll have forgotten what happens. WILL I READ OTHER BOOKS BY THIS AUTHOR? Absolutely -- he's got a new raving fan, and I can't wait to see how he's going to top this one.

    "A Great Listen"

    Interestingly enough, the reviews of this book hit both sides of the street. I really enjoyed the book. No deep thinking, no hidden adjenda, just WOW, what's going to happen next. I think it's an excellent listen. Supurb plot development that will keep you on the edge of your seat. Harlan Coben is noted for his intricate plots. This book is no exception. Get into this book and you'll take the long way home just to hear more.

    "Like the book, -- odd ending"

    I thought it was a good book overall; I never saw that ending comming. I would have given this book a 5, but at the end he says "I bet you wonder what happened to X Y Z characters - Well, I'm not going to tell you, the story ends here" then he continues with the ending of one plot-line. I thought that was just a sorry way to end a story after making you like these other characters. Still, the book is a good read.

    "Excellent Narration!"

    Enjoyable story, quick pace, but the stand out here is definitely the narration by actor Steven Weber. His intonation and urgency really drove this book for me. I wish he could read all of these productions!!

    An avid reader, demanding of the story, characters and narrator. Mysteries and historical fiction are my favorites.

    "not up to snuff"

    If Harlan Coben's name were not on the cover, I would never believe he wrote it. I read all of the Myron Bolitar novels and one other ("Gone for Good"). ALL of them were excellent stories with well developed characters. THIS book was simply awful. I listened to the first quarter of the book again to be sure, but Mr. Coben writes a sentence describing something the character has done, but the character never actually does it! Is it possible this book was written with no proofreader/editor? And there is absolutely no explanation for the fact that the "dead" wife chose this moment to return. (I am not spoiling the book; this is stated in the teaser on Audible). I never cared for the characters, I never felt I knew them, and I never cared at all about what happened to any of them. Don't buy this book.

    "A fun escape"

    Tell No One is full of twists and turns (although I must agree with a previous reviewer that the ending was a bit odd). This is an entertaining listen. Coben keeps the story moving with enough intrigue to keep you listening, yet the story has just the right amount of technical detail and character development to draw the reader/listener in.

    Steven Weber is a good choice for the narration. His pace is good, and his voice is easy to listen to.

    If you are looking for a high-action mystery that is easy to listen to, enjoyable and will keep you guessing, then Tell No One is just what the Doctor ordered.

    "Yeow!"

    What an outstanding book! As another reviewer said, it grabs your attention from the first word. I'd recommend this to anyone who asks. The surprise for me, however, was finding another excellent narrator! I'm a Scott Brick fan (who isn't?), but I've be remiss if I didn't say that Steven Weber is in Scott's class, both are simply outstanding. Both men have a wonderful way of making the book come alive and have you sitting on the edge of your seat, even at 70 MPH. If you're looking for something for a cross-country flight, listen to this book, but tell EVERYONE about it!

    "Good Escapist Read"

    Okay. I liked this story. The soft, even paced narration by Steven Weber was appropriate for the hero's experiences and situation. I definitely would read/listen to other stories by Harlan Corben. However, I think that getting the unabridged version really is a disadvantage. After finishing the audio, I looked at the hardcopy of the book at our local bookstore. I discovered that you really lose some of the nice color and flavor that, though not imperative for listening purposes, just rounds out the enjoyment of the tale.
