Reviewed – Tell No One by Harlen Coben


Its been eight years.
David Beck is a widower mourning the loss of his wife and childhood-love, Elizabeth.
Elizabeth was kidnapped and brutally murdered for reasons known to no one.
A pediatrician by profession, Beck has busied his life with kids and their medical issues. Until this morning when he receives an anonymous email that upturned his life. The email is coded with words and signs that only himself and Elizabeth had known. The email is signed – Tell No One

Does that mean it is Elizabeth after all these years or just a scumbag playing tricks? Well, if it is Elizabeth, then where was she these eight long years when his conscience was made to believe that she was murdered dead? And if not, then how does a stranger know of their secrets and codes? And most of all, why would they play tricks with him?

Begins the reverse journey of David Beck into his wife’s life, digging out the past while he starts to believe that maybe after all, Elizabeth wasn’t murdered, maybe she was alive. But what is in store for him will not only shake the core of him but leave him doubtful about everything he knew his wife ever was. Secrets, tragedies, incidents, lies, falsehoods, cheats, murders, truths are waiting to be unearthed as Dr. David Beck turns to the day, Elizabeth was supposedly murdered, eight years ago.

But until he gets to the truth, is he supposed to sit lip-tight and follow what the email ended with – Tell No One?

Totally awesome book that will hold back your breath with the suspense best done Coben style! The characters, the setting, the plot, all so perfect yet terrifying and appealing to the reader in you. Another one of those few books you will finish before you notice but you will sure notice because you will end up doing nothing but finishing the book.

This book quite simply is the best in the mystery genre and needs no recommendation. Just blindly pick it, grab it, snatch it and embark on the journey laid by none other than the Master of Mystery, Harlan Coben.

      Oh yes, I am still to watch the movie. Is it equally good?

        It’s different since it’s set in France and they changed plot points too so don’t expect it to mirror the book. But it does have the same idea and feel to it.
