Publisher's Summary

Critically acclaimed, best-selling author Harlan Coben has won the Shamus, Anthony, and Edgar Awards during his impressive career.

Tell No One is an irresistibly suspenseful thriller infused with nail-biting tension and packed with shocking plot twists. It has been eight years since Dr. David Beck’s wife, Elizabeth, was murdered by a serial killer. When Beck receives a message containing a phrase only Elizabeth should know, he is tormented to tears. Either someone is playing a sick joke, or the wife he’s never stopped loving is still alive. He’s been warned to tell no one, and as the desperation of his search for the truth intensifies, he heads straight toward a deadly secret.

Coben tempers the drama with dashes of sly humor and a cast of unforgettable characters, including a bare-hands assassin, a glamorous plus-size model and a drug dealer with a soft spot for Dr. Beck. Listeners will relish Ed Sala’s exhilarating narration.

    "Great Fun"

    A great thriller. A good versus evil mystery with some grey areas between the two. Romance, evil characters, suspense and a pace that makes it a really fun listening experience.

    "Twist for A Harlan Coben Story"
    Any additional comments?

    I like his Myron Bolitar Sports mysteries but was disappointed with the Woods. I found Tell No One a bit maudlin at time, but boy did he twist and turn the story and kept me guessing to the very end. I was surprised and I usually like to uncover the murderer by the end of the book and I did not in this one. Kudos to Harlan Coben. If you can get through the sappy parts it is a true mystery to enjoy.

    Story
    "Not Coben's Best"

    This book was a little bit too busy for me. Too many dots that were connected by circuitous paths. Fiction doesn't necessarily have to be totally believable in order to be enjoyable. Yet this hard-to-believe story also lacked a high degree of enjoyability for this listener. It wasn't bad. It just wasn't particularly good. You end up not liking any of the characters and some of the twists seemed to be there just to fulfill the requisite need for twists in this type of tale. The three other Coben books I've listened to (Gone for Good, The Innocent and No Second Chance) were far superior to this one in my view. And despite what Coben said in the interview following the book, I don't think the switching between first and third persons was an effective device. I think I know why this book was offered in a $4.95 sale. But I've gotten lucky before and I'll get lucky again. (Just viewed the trailer from the film adaptation. Maybe I'll check it out.)

    "Drags a bit"
    If you could sum up Tell No One in three words, what would they be?

    Drags a bit


    What did you like best about this story?

    The revealing of the truth


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Ed Sala?

    Not sure


    Any additional comments?

    The second half of this book is very good and exciting at the end. But the first half really moves at a crawl. The blame lies with both the author and the reader. Mr. Sala is much too ponderous in his rendering.

    "Couldn't put it down"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely. Just a riveting story.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes!


    Any additional comments?

    I have read so many books of this type that I am usually ahead of where the story is going and what is going to happen. Not this time. I love being taken by surprise. I listen on my commute everyday and I honestly wanted to just sit in my car to keep listening at the end of the day!

    "old book, new release date"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Audible release date may be 2012, but this book was published over 10 years ago, outdated on tech info and police investigative procedures. The internet explorer and microprocessor sections were antique and not interesting in todays CSI world! The plot was great, but I got sidetracked with outdated writing.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Its a good crime story with unexpected turns.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The Casablanca pixel editing.


    What character would you cut from Tell No One?

    They were all good.


    Any additional comments?

    Audible should include PUBLISHED date when I'm buying the book.

    Any additional comments?

    I'm confused by the positive reviews. This book was so full of hackneyed cliches that I started to be able to predict exact wordings. The writing was so poorly done that I was barely able to focus on the plot. Spend your money elsewhere!

    Story
    "3 ½ stars. Above average mystery suspense."

    It kept my interest. I loved the Tyree parts. He was a black drug dealer. His was the best part of the story but only a small part. I was intrigued with Eric Wu. I had not read about a thug with his talents before.

    My problem was the author using slight of hand or gimmicks rather than substantive suspense. Examples follow.

    1. A few times conversations were drawn out to delay suspense for a couple of minutes. It was artificial. For example, A has a question and meets with B to ask it. Instead of asking the question right away, A talks about other things or asks other questions before finally getting around to the main question. Or, A wants to tell something to B but beats around the bush with other comments before getting to it. It bothered me because if I were the character, I would have said the thing right away instead of beating around the bush.

    2. Two guys are in a car. If I were one of the guys, I would have said or asked things that he did not. His silence allowed an interesting twist to be revealed a few minutes later. It was convenient for the author, not logical for the reader.

    3. I like twists and surprises but the main twist was hard to believe. A loving couple kept secrets from each other, which were the kind of secrets a loving couple would not keep from each other. But that was the basis for the book.

    The overall result is a decent mystery story. But my problems were linked to characters’ actions not fitting their motivations.

    The narrator Ed Sala was very good. I liked the way he paused. Some narrators don’t pause enough.

    Genre: mystery suspense.

    Story
    "Only Average"
    What did you like best about Tell No One? What did you like least?

    I liked how the story began but how it came together and ended was ridiculous, how he was allowed to be pursued by the police was disgraceful. The story ended up being kinda stupid.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    I actually listened to this many books ago, I don't remember what I read next.


    What aspect of Ed Sala’s performance would you have changed?

    Nothing, he was fine.


    Do you think Tell No One needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Heck No, one was enough.


    Any additional comments?

    I like stories that make sense and this one just didn't do it for me.

    "Good when you get past reader"

    Good story ... suspense .. interesting characters ... it's just that the narrator, who is supposed to be a 30+ year old guy sounds like a 60+ year old, and it's hard to reconcile in the listening. Really poor match of character + narrator. For the entire book I had to remind myself that my character is YOUNG.
