“Tell No One” reviewed by Jordan Candies

In his exciting mystery novel, Tell No One, Harlan Coben tells of the dynamic life of his main character, Dr. David Beck.

Set in New York City, Dr. Beck continues to struggle with the death of his wife, which occurred eight years prior.

Coben opens with a tear-jerking scene that will have his reader close to tears. Soon enough, Tell No One propells the reader on a ride through the seemingly simple, yet deeply intricate life of the doctor.

Through friends, family, and strangers, Dr. David Beck begins to unravel his late wife’s secrets while unraveling a few secrets of his own.

As the plot unwinds, Coben reveals information that only further complicates the already perplexing circumstances of his characters’ lives.

Tell No One is a shocking thriller that had me hanging on to the end of every page. Coben’s brilliance shines through in this book.

Tell No One is a book for mature adolescents and for adults.
