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.

Listen to sample first...

I did not listen to the sample audio, and I did not check the narrators name before purchasing this book. That was a mistake.
After a few minutes, I stopped the book. The reader and my ears are not in agreement.
Cannot review the story; I am a Coben fan, but could not get past the performance.

Tell Everyone!

Great story. I never expect too much because people tend to under or overrate these books; however, I was entertained. The plot twists are awesome. I never got bored. The narrator was not annoying, unlike some that I have recently listened to. I also enjoyed the interview with the author at the end. There were reviews regarding the investigation process and how archaic it was in the novel, but seriously, just go along with it. I would definitely recommend this to others, and I look forward to reading more of the author's work.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.)

This thriller gets my very highest recommendation!

This is a Harlan Coben standalone novel. It is easily one of the most suspense filled novels I have read. It is Coben at his best.

The narration is flawless!
