Tell No One: A Novel Mass Market Paperback – August 25, 2009 by Harlan Coben (Author)

I usually don’t write 5-star reviews because I don’t read them and I don’t think many people do. But I have to leave a 5-star for one of my all time favorite books. I had never heard of Harlan Coben and happened to see a signed copy of this in a bookstore. I bought it just because it was signed and the story looked good. Yes, I am THAT shallow. 🙂 This is one of those books that I keep handy and read again and again and again. …Lots of others have described what the book is about. I’ll just say that I read a lot. I am rarely shocked. The ending of this book had me GOBSMACKED. It was amazing. Check it out!

Amazon.com Review David Beck has rebuilt his life since his wife’s murder eight years ago, finishing medical school and establishing himself as a pediatrician, but he’s never forgotten the woman he fell in love with in second grade. And when a mysterious e-mail arrives on the anniversary of their first kiss, with a message and an image that leads him to wonder whether Elizabeth might still be alive, Beck will stop at nothing to find the truth that’s eluded him for so many years. A powerful billionaire is equally determined to make sure his role in her disappearance never comes to light, even if it means destroying an innocent man. In David Beck, Harlan Coben, the author of the popular series starring sports agent Myron Bolitar (Darkest Fear et al.) has created a protagonist who shares many of Bolitar’s best qualities–he’s a decent, generous, gentle guy whose loyalty to those he loves is unquestionable. So when he discovers that people he was close to may be responsible not only for Elizabeth’s murder but also the “accidental” death of his father, Beck’s sense of betrayal is as understandable to the reader as his uncharacteristically violent reaction. Coben is a skillful storyteller with a gift for creating likable characters caught up in circumstances that illuminate their complex emotional lives and deep humanity. This should be the thriller that breaks this talented writer out of the mystery genre and earns him the recognition he deserves. –Jane Adams –This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.


Tell No One: A Novel Mass Market Paperback – August 25, 2009 by Harlan Coben (Author) Review

This is one roller coaster of a thriller. There seem to be three kinds of thrillers. Type III: Exiting things happen, occasionally, eventually, in Hollywood and TV somebody is dying or things are exploding, but mostly the whole thing is explanations of how to make a silencer out of a bag of gummy bears, or red herrings (Broadchurch–yeech!), Yawn. Type II Jack Reacher. .. I’m waiting for Jack Reacher to take shelter in a pre-school (have to be from a tornado–what could be more American, Lee Child. ..) And it turns out the pre-school is a front for. … big mean guys who. … well they need to be beaten up in a way that guys with college degrees are okay with. …Great stuff. Never a dull moment. Sherlock Holmes kicking butt in the heartland. Then perhaps Type I thrillers, like Tell No One, What’s going to happen next. … ??? every answer to those nagging questions results in three more questions. Waiting for the phone to ring. .. you go into full Hitchcock anxiety, or the reader suddenly starts wondering, ‘why didn’t mom. ….???’ (no spoilers here). Great stuff. The only book better that I’ve found so far is The Day of the Jackal. I just wish there was some way I could avoid reading those mundane Type III frauds. -Read Reviews-

HC AT HIS BESTThis is another outstanding stand-alone book by HC outside of his Myron Bolitar/Win book series. A lot of different crimes and players are involved and intertwined here wherein the basis of the entire story is that Dr. David Beck’s wife Elizabeth was allegedly murdered years ago and yet, astonishingly, David begins to receive communications from someone, in code, about things that only he and Elizabeth would know about – so, is Elizabeth still alive or is this some sick hoax? The plots come together, and include twists and turns up to and including the very last page of the book – a superb piece of fictional writing by a master.
