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.

    "Keeps it suspenseful and I love it"

    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!

    Story
    "So you think your life is out of control...."

    I think this author is climbing up my "go to" author list. The characters in this book are forced to behave out of their comfort zones to walk the paths that eventually lead to the answers they are seeking and I think they were wishing they had given up their answers long ago. The main character has a secret. By mid book I knew the secret. . Turns out so did the person he had been hiding it from. The clues given absolutely add up to the conclusion but could be seen from a different angle and throw you off track. While I thought I knew the who and why of it, I was not spot on and understood I had matched the clues in such a way as to be right on my analysis. Totally enjoyed this book.

    I gave the performance a three because although the narration did seem to fit our main character, he seemed almost bored in places that could have used a little more emotion. He was not annoying however and his character voices were believable and appropriate.

    "Six Years turned into eight years..."

    I really liked this listen, the narrator was great but the story was familiar. A sinister family, witness protection and a heartbroken man. I bought it on sale otherwise I may have felt I wasted a credit.

    "Slow"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Boring, moves so slowly, I keep loosing concentration, yes it is that bad. Do your self a favor and don't bother.


    What was most disappointing about Harlan Coben’s story?

    Not his best work


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Ed Sala?

    Monotone and slow


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    No, None

    Story
    "Next time *HOLD* the self-flagellation!"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    . . . probably not . . .


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Overall this was quite a decent yarn (and I would have likely rated it much higher), . . . HOWEVER . . . while narrating the story, the protagonist's incessant self-flagellating comments regarding his relationship with his spouse (i.e., "Corny. I know.") ruined what otherwise would have been an acceptable & entertaining story!

    The narrator's self-flagellation was entirely unnecessary the first time. It was distracting the second time, irritating the third time, and so utterly exasperating by the end of the book that I won't likely buy another by this -otherwise rather decent author.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    I would advise the narrator to have requested some edits on the self-flagellating & call it "abridged". Even he seemed exhausted by all the self-depreciating comments.

    "Bad choice of narrator!"
    What didn’t you like about Ed Sala’s performance?

    Too old for the character! His voice sounded like he was narrating a 60's detective drama.


    Any additional comments?

    I like the story but I shouldn't have to keep reminding myself that the character isn't a 60's TV detective wanna-be!

    Story
    "Not Coben's Best"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I would recommend this book to Coben fans, but with I would add a caveat. The resolution falters. It's not Coben's best.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The most interesting aspect of the story is the story itself -- until it ends. I enjoyed most of the characters -- especially his friend, Tyrese.


    Which character – as performed by Ed Sala – was your favorite?

    I enjoyed the rendering of David Beck, Shauna, and Tyrese. However, I thought the narration and characterizations were very good throughout.


    Could you see Tell No One being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    It was made into a movie, but I did not see it.


    Any additional comments?

    The beginning and middle were far more logical than the ending, which to me, was somewhat of a let-down.
