Publisher's Summary

One misstep puts a man - and everyone he loves - in the path of a relentless killer.

The scion of an old-money San Francisco family, Daniel Brasher left his well-paying, respectable money-manager position to marry his community organizer wife and work at a job he loves, leading group counseling sessions with recently paroled violent offenders.

One night he finds an envelope - one intended for someone else that was placed in his office mailbox by accident. Inside is an unsigned piece of paper, a handwritten note that says, "Admit what you've done or you will bleed for it." The deadline in the note has already passed, and when Daniel looks into it, he finds that the person to whom the envelope was addressed was brutally murdered. But that's just the beginning.

It appears that the killer might have some connection to the offenders Daniel is counseling.

As he scrambles to uncover the truth, Daniel finds more warnings in his office mail, to people whom the police cannot track down, and to victims who cannot be saved. Daniel's efforts to find and help the victims, however, have alerted the killer to his involvement. Next Daniel gets a deadly threat of his own. Now, with the clock ticking, Daniel must somehow appease, outwit, or unmask a seemingly unstoppable killer.

marred

Would you try another book from Gregg Hurwitz and/or Scott Brick?

yes

Who was your favorite character and why?

leo: a man's man. If I ever needed a bodyguard, and maybe i will if Gregg reads my review, I'd want Leo at my side and back.

What does Scott Brick bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

gives it immediacy & depth

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

Netflix anyway

Any additional comments?

An interesting plot and excellent reader but the book is marred by all too frequent diatribes that comes across as the rantings of a self-hating wannabe Marxist.

Great up until the very last.

This is an excellent story. But it has an ending which could have been left off. Or changed entirely. It was so obvious it almost caused physical pain. I could go into details but it would be a spoiler. And i have seen others who really liked this book.

The subtitle of this could be "No good deed goes unpunished." The main character makes his way in the world by caring for those whom no one cares. Due to one decision his life and those of several others were placed in peril.

Gregg Hurwitz is excellent at psychological thrillers. Full rich characters that one can get to care about or even recognize. Twists this way. Turns in the other way. All quite entertaining. Up until the end.

Scott Brick, as always, did an excellent performance. He truly seems to love his work. It is not just his changing voices but he brings the characters to life. Well done!

Scott Brick has a mis-step

If you could sum up Tell No Lies in three words, what would they be?

Different from other novels

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

I can only compare it to other Hurwitz novels--and in doing that, the author surprised me. Just when I expected something like his other novels to happen, he threw in a twist and surprised me.

What about Scott Brick’s performance did you like?

Normally, I really like Brick's performances, however, having lived and worked in San Francisco for 10 years, he needs to learn the local place names: Moscone Center is pronounced Mos-konee. The same is also true for Noe Valley; it isn't 'No' (like doe, a deer) it's pronounced 'No-ee'.

Another fabulous performance

I throughly enjoy this author and Scott Brick together. Such a fabulous combination. Was not certain about this book after reading some of the reviews but I thought it was as good as any of Gregg Hurwitz's other books. If you like this author you won't be disappointed. Kept my attention until the end with a very likeable character. Kept me guessing with many twists.

Another excellent Scott Brick narration. Fairly certain he could make the dictionary sound suspenseful and intriguing!

This book had several plot twists that I did not see coming; one that I was positive I did see and was surprised by the the twist to the twist! The characters were well developed and it was an overall really enjoyable book to listen to. Highly recommend!!

If you know Hurwitz, pay no attention to the negative reviews.

I don't normally right reviews, but I have to admit I was a little thrown off by the negative reviews before buying this book. Though I was hesitant to click the buy button on this book because of the naysayers, I stuck with my gut basted on past Gregg Hurwitz work. Simply, the guy knows what he's doing...so, I suggest, if ever you stumble on a book written by Hurwitz...you give it a try.
