Reviews

Coben briefly abandons protagonist Myron Bolitar for this story of a man who lost his bride to a serial killer, only to find himself implicated in her murder eight years later. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.

Adult/High School-Dr. David Beck's wife was murdered by a serial killer, or so the police told him. After eight years of struggles with his grief, on the anniversary of their first kiss, a message appears on David's home computer, a phrase he shared only with her. A current, digital image of Elizabeth follows and David's hopes soar that she is alive. His search for her is hampered by the FBI, who consider him a suspect in her death, and by a billionaire whose son plays a role in the plot. Coben has written a gripping thriller with page-turning suspense and enough humor to break the tension on occasion. His use of state-of-the-art technological devices to move the story along will keep YAs reading. Those familiar with Coben's "Myron Bolitar" series (Dell) will welcome his new protagonist.-Katherine Fitch, Rachel Carson Middle School, Fairfax, VA Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.

Every writer likes to stretch his legs, and here Coben, author of seven acclaimed Myron Bolitar mysteries (Darkest Fear, etc.), stretches his. He doesn't quite kick his reputation aside in the process. This thriller, Coben's first non-Bolitar novel, is a breezy enough read, but it's not up to snuff. It's got a nifty setup, though. David Beck and Elizabeth Parker, just-married childhood sweethearts, are vacationing at the Beck family retreat when Beck is knocked unconscious and Elizabeth is kidnapped. Cut to eight years later: Beck is a young physician working with ghetto kids in Manhattan, and Elizabeth, we learn, is dead, victim of a serial killer known as KillRoy. Or is she? For immediately after two bodies eight years old are uncovered on the Beck land, Beck receives a series of e-mails apparently from Elizabeth. His frantic search to find out if she lives dovetails with the equally frenzied efforts of cops to pin Elizabeth's murder on Beck, as well as the antic moves of a mysterious billionaire an old friend of the Beck family and his two hired thugs to frame Beck for that murder. Beck finds himself a man on the run from the cops his only ally a black drug dealer whose child he's treating for hemophilia caught in an overcomplicated tangle of lies and vengeance. Coben knows how to move pages, and he generates considerable suspense, but there's little new here. The narrative style is cloned from James Patterson, alternating first-person with third. The villains, particularly the billionaire and a Chinese martial artist, are as old as mid-Elmore Leonard or even Chandler. The black drug dealer isn't a character, he's a plot device, and the climax packs the emotional wallop of a strong episode of The Rockford Files. (June 19) Forecast: Heavy-hitting blurbs from Jeffery Deaver and Phillip Margolin, among others, indicate more about the solidarity of the mystery community than about this book's excellence, but should attract browsers. The publisher will pitch this as a summer beach read, and it's not a bad one. In fact, it may outsell Coben's mysteries, despite its flaws. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.

"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
