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.

    "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.

    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.

    "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.

    This is not a book that you will know the ending from the first few chapters. Lots of twist and turns. Great read!!

    "Just okay"

    Interesting enough for me to keep listening, but the story ended a bit abruptly for me - and the narrator really wasn't my cup of tea. Too breathy and sounded far too old for most of the characters he narrated.

    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!

    "Annoyingly suspenseful"
    If you could sum up Tell No One in three words, what would they be?

    Average suspense novel


    What other book might you compare Tell No One to and why?

    None of Coben's other books. I usually love his stuff. I could've done without this one.


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

    No. It made me anxious just trying to get past the filler to find out what the hook was.
