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.

This is not a book that you will know the ending from the first few chapters. Lots of twist and turns. Great read!!
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.
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!
Simply outstanding. A true page turner. Production and voice were terrific. Excellent story with a large number of twists and turns. Well done.
Definitely some holes in the plot throughout but was entertaining and suspenseful to the end.
daughter of an Oparah fan.
A great audio book for travel. I like to listen while traveling to and from work and I enjoyed the easy to listen and follow story line. Not predictable but also not so many characters that you have to concentrate.
