Review: Tell No One by Harlan Coben

Goodreads: 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.

Kritters Thoughts: A suspenseful ride that kept me hooked to my Nook for two days straight. A great break from my normal reads, I was swept into this story from page one and 200 pages later was still absolutely engulfed in the story.

A mystery that unfolds 8 years after the death of Dr. David Beck's wife. The truths unravel piece by piece to expose what really happened that evening by the lake. I have to be honest I thought had a hunch and was putting it all together when the whole flipped upside down on me. Coben had me thinking I was sure of the ending and then he quickly changed everything and put it on the one person who I felt was beyond innocent.

A book picked out for book club - now I will be definitely picking up some more reads by this author. I would pass this book along to all of my friends, male and female, who love to read the who dun its and try to figure out how all the pieces fit together.

Rating:definitely a good read, but can't read two in a row

Pages: 352

Cover Challenge Jan-March: Orange cover


  1. This was the first Coben book I ever read and I loved it! He definitely writes a good thriller.....

  2. This was the first Coben I read -- oh, he can really grab you, can't he? My favorite story about this book is that I gave it to my son (a very reluctant reader) and he got MAD because I wouldn't tell him what happened and he couldn't stop reading it because he wanted to know! If he liked it, anyone will like it.
