Tell No One
by Harlan Coben

Harlan Coben’s Tell No One is a great summer read for those who love murder mystery novels. It tells the story of David Beck, a man still struggling with the loss of his wife who was attacked and brutally killed many years before. However, his whole life is turned upside down when he receives an email with a message that only he and his wife would understand. The message warns him to “tell no one,” hence the name of the book, and Beck sets off to discover the truth behind his wife’s death and the possibility that she is still alive. This book has everything a person could want out of a mystery novel: blood, torture, suspense, and exciting plot twists. The more Coben books you read, the richer your experience because he uses many of the same characters throughout his works. For example, a ruthless hit man, Eric Wu, makes an appearance in a couple of his books, including Tell No One. Once you start one of his books, it is hard to stop. Be warned however, if you scare easily or have an active imagination, don’t read a Coben book alone at night.

I loved this book, too, and the French movie version(2006)is definitely worth seeing. Very suspenseful.
