Elizabeth was taken from David one night, tortured, killed and abandoned by the serial murderer known as KillRoy; he was left for dead. Eight years later, he gets an e-mail which leads him to a camera feed, and sees her standing on a street corner looking at him. And suddenly he is on the run, accused of her murder and of others, dependent on the whim of a violent pusher whose child's life he saved. Harlan Coben's new thriller Tell No One is a terrifying kinetic novel of abuse of power, false accusation and the things that go wrong with the most careful of schemes. David Beck is a memorable character--a dedicated doctor whose mourning for his wife has gradually become itself a sort of paralysis, but who has a surprising resilience under stress; he has not got much going for him in the terrible situations in which he finds himself, but he makes ingenious use of what he has got. This is an intelligent thriller in which we get to watch suspect, police and some very unpleasant heavies chase each other around in impressively convoluted circles. Coben is one of the best multiple-bluffers in the business. --Roz Kaveney
"Harlan Coben's Tell No One begins at a run and in no time is moving at an all-out sprint.... The characters are engaging and the strange goings-on will leave readers rapidly turning pages in search of fresh clues.... [Coben] writes with wit and a shrewd sense of plotting."-- "San Francisco Chronicle" "Set to be one of the big thriller reads of the summer.... Fifteen pages into this book, you're sucked in and Coben never lets the pace stall.... If it takes more than two days to finish this one, you're working too many hours. A hot summer rush."-- "Detroit News" "Compelling, cinematic ... with surprises in store for the reader until the very last page.... [readers will] savor every clue, every detail."-- "USA Today" "Coben knows how to move pages, and he generates considerable suspense."-- "Publishers Weekly" "A gloriously exciting yarn. ... A quest for answers that will have you burning the midnight oil till 3:00 a.m."-- "Kirkus Reviews --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.See all Product description

Effectively written in first person for the main character (Beck), this book is a gripping tangle of intertwined personal agendas and feelings. You could not guess the end result in a million years!I was addicted to this book, even to the very last page, and had to physically prevent myself from reading the end chapter to see the outcome!
Exciting, tearful, addictive, absolutely thrilling!
I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who likes to be "blown away" with a believable thriller, and certainly felt like I had been slapped in the face by a FANTASTIC read!
The best book I have read for a long time.
I found this to be one of those books that seems a lot shorter than it actually is because the action is non-stop, you barely have time to get over one near miss when you're confronted with some other danger or a new piece of the puzzle is put into place. It's a compelling book thanks to the mystery surrounding the death of Elizabeth Back, wife of David Beck. This was one of the more enjoyable books I've read this year and rate it very highly purely on its ability to entertain.
I seriously recommend this book to anyone, you wont be disappointed!!

A very good tale, with a unexpected twist at the very end. But I didn't have a infinity with any of the characters.
Though I would recommend it as a good read.
