DON'T START THIS BOOK IF YOU HAVE ANYTHING ELSE TO DO
I finished this, my first Harlan Coben book, in less than 48 hours. Once I started it, that's all I wanted to do, solve the mystery. I read 10-12 books a month, mainly mysteries. Trust me when I tell you that most are drivel, a shameful waste of the trees to print them. When you stumble across a writer this talented you seek out all his other works.

What a great plot! The characters are well-developed, and the storyline moves super fast. It has more twists and turns than "the long and winding road." Very hard to put down once you start reading. This is the first book I've read by Coben, and I will definitely read more of his work. Feel free to email with any questions. ~LeAnn

Excellent book! Keeps you on the edge of your seat and guessing what's going to happen next. Not one of those suspense books that makes it painfully obvious who the bad guy is from the beginning. Surprises lurk within the pages up until the very end!

I think this story was greatly enhanced by Steven Weber's (the guy from Wings) reading of it. His voice is rich with much inflection and tone variation. I never had trouble knowing which character was speaking, and with some male narrators I have had that issue. The mystery is fast paced with several unforseen twists that kept it very interesting. Ultimately this is a love story, but not of the "romance" genre; one born of two people who are true soul mates.

This is the first time I have read this author. He has a wonderful way of writing. Got, bogged down as many writers seem to do in the middle, but in the end pulled off a good twist. I enjoyed the ride even though the parts that seemed inconsistant with the storyline.

This audio book kept me entertained for several short road trips, but I wasted a lot of gas sitting in my driveway listening because I couldn't bring myself to turn it off. There were parts of the story that were a little drawn out, but, the story was interesting, the suspense intense. I would definitely recommend it. I can't re-list it right now because my husband wants to listen to it.

I read a lot of mysteries/thrillers, but this one hooked me from early on. The narrative switches from first to third person, so you empathize with Beck while simultaneously worrying for him as you read what the bad guys are plotting. The bad guys in this book, one in particular, are Bad with a capital B! The plot unfolds at an even pace, and the gradual revelations will keep you guessing through the very last page. This was the first Harlan Coben book I read, and I will definitely read his others.

The style of the first-person narrative that begins this book really hooked me at the start, but Coben couldn't seem to maintain that quality of writing throughout. The book declined into an acceptable, better-than-average but not exceptional, mystery thriller, with some good plot twists and truly chilling characters.

This is my first book by Coben, and I almost hate to pick up another one because it can't be anything but a let down. He can't possibly write anything this good twice. The person who said that you should have a large block of free time was 100% right. I was sucked in early and put everything I could aside until I was done. One thing I particularly enjoyed about this book was the variety of characters. They didn't all come from the same white bread world and some of the hero's allies were not people one would expect.

I have read several of Harlan Coben books and bought the audio versions. This is by far the best one that has nothing to do with sports. A pleasant surprise for it was filled with thrills and one enormous mystery is slowly unveiled. Get it.

This is my first Harlan Coben book and I was hooked from the first page. It's a heart-stopping, page-turner from start to finish. I literally finished this book in a few hours....could not put it down. It's one of those books that grabs you and keeps you enthralled, at times you think you can't read another chapter, afraid of what's going to happen next and at the same time you keep turning the pages because you have to see what happens next! One of the best books I've read in a long time, and that's saying a lot. I highly recommend it....you won't be disappointed.

I have read all but a few of Coben's books and "Tell No One" is one of his best! Despite the fact that most of Coben's works follow a similar storytelling pattern, I didn't find this one to be too predictable and it kept me guessing. There were parts of the story that were a little unrealistic, but that didn't bother me too much - this is a work of fiction afterall, isn't it? Overall, I thoguht this was a great story, as evidenced by the fact it only took me two days to read it. If you like suspenseful and thrilling tales, this one is for you!

Fast and fun suspense thriller that reminded me a lot of Dean Koontz' Velocity. There are some quirky characters that add a lot of flavor (a drug dealer who's a good father figure, an assassin who tries to avoid killing people the same way twice, and an outspoken lesbian model all provide supporting roles). Plot is pretty over the top, and the book probably has 1 twist too many, but serves its purpose as a good beach read.

3.5 stars out of 5

It's another page-turner from the master of suspense and surprise...Harlan Coben. In this one, David Beck loses the love of his life after only a few short years of marriage. His wife, Elizabeth, is beaten to death, branded and left by a serial killer at the side of the road. Beck is also beaten brutally with a bat and left to die.

The book starts 8 years later. And, suddenly, he begins to receive cryptic messages. Messages that only his Elizabeth could know about. But, since her own father identified her body at the morgue 8 years ago, could she possibly be alive?

An excellent read. One word of caution, don't start it unless you have alot of free time on your hands. You won't want to put it down.

Fantastic! Wow! My first Coben book and won't be the last! Harlan Coben is a master at suspense. I was on the edge of my seat the whole time.

David Beck's wife, Elizabeth, was murdered by a serial killer. Eight years later, he's sitting alone in his office one night when an anonymous e-mail pops up with a strange subject that has familiar meaning. He opens it, and that sets off a dangerous string of events that will keep you glued to the pages until it's all over! Plot twists galore, so much detail that it's like watching a movie and a suprise ending that you won't be able to predict if you try! If you are looking for a superfast, satisfying read-this is the book for you!

This is the first book by Harlan Coben that I've read, but I'm getting a bunch more as soon as I can. Non-stop suspense; unexpected twists; characters you care about. Wow!

From back cover: For Dr. David Beck, the loss was shattering. And every day for the past eight years, he has relived the horror of what happened. The gleaming lake. The pale moonlight. The piercing screams. The night his wife was taken. The last night he saw her alive.
Everyone tells him its time to move on, to forget the past once and for all. But for David Beck, there can be no closure. A message has appeared on his computer, a phrase only he and his dead wife know. Suddenly Beck is taunted with the impossible-that somewhere, somehow, Elizabeth is alive . . . but Beck has been warned to tell no one.

Am listening to this now on cassette. It is an enticing, contemporary (2012 for those FUTURE, 100 year later readers) read so far that has you guessing what the REAL underlying reason is for the Doctor's wife's death, or is it disappearance, eight years earlier. Hope I'm not disappointed, like for some lame Green Energy type conspiracy.

A suspenseful ride that kept me hooked to my Nook for two days straight. A great break from my normal reads, I was swept into this story from page one and 200 pages later was still absolutely engulfed in the story.

A mystery that unfolds 8 years after the death of Dr. David Beck's wife. The truths unravel piece by piece to expose what really happened that evening by the lake. I have to be honest I thought had a hunch and was putting it all together when the whole flipped upside down on me. Coben had me thinking I was sure of the ending and then he quickly changed everything and put it on the one person who I felt was beyond innocent.

A book picked out for book club - now I will be definitely picking up some more reads by this author. I would pass this book along to all of my friends, male and female, who love to read the who dun its and try to figure out how all the pieces fit together.

There have been books that I've read twice or three times over and have always enjoyed them as much if not more than the first time around. That is not the case with my second reading of this book. I am not sure if I confused this book with an actual Coben great, and maybe that is why I gave it a full 5 stars when I originally posted the book on Goodreads, but I am going to need to take away a few stars. The author goes through great pains to over explain details that are just not necessary to the plot. He also piles on lame metaphors on top of lame metaphors. The clichés (a word even the protagonist uses at least a half dozen times) and stereotypes were just too over the top. And did the protagonist actually say, "...but my eyes got snagged on a picture of, well, me...Amazing how sinister I looked in the darkened photo, like a Mideast terrorist." He did! Every gimmick used in any substandard movie thriller is used here (like the dark sunglasses wearing thug). In fact, it seems that that's what the author was going for - movie script. With the right director and producer, this could translate into a decent movie, it just makes for a disappointing read.

Eight years ago, David and Elizabeth Beck traveled to their old stomping grounds to celebrate an anniversary. But things go terribly wrong when David is attacked and Elizabeth is abducted, her body found days later in a ditch. Trying to put the past behind him, David is shocked when he receives an anonymous email with a message that only he and his wife would understand. Is she somehow alive? Is someone playing a trick on him? David starts taking a look at the events of eight years ago and sees things may not be what they seemed.

This is a fast paced suspense thriller that I could not put down. Who has to eat or sleep when you have a book that hooks you from the first page? There were so many twists and turns in the story, I never knew what would happen next. And I certainly didn't expect the twist at the end of the story. I highly recommend this book. My rating: 5 Stars.

For eight tormented years, Dr. David Beck has relived the horror of the night he lost his wife. He can still see it clearly -- the gleaming lake, the pale moonlight -- and he can still hear his wife's piercing screams. But all that changes when a message appears on his computer, a phrase only he and his wife would know. The message comes with a warning. The price for his compliance is high. Now Beck must decide who to trust and who to fear-as he heads into the heart of darkness, seeking the truth about that one fateful night.

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.

A fast paced story beginning with the abduction and murder of Dr. David Beck's wife while they are on an anniversary vacation. The clock then moves forward to eight years later and suddenly Dr. Beck is receiving emails that can only lead him to believe that his wife is still alive. A thrilling and very well written story.

For Dr. David Beck, the loss was shattering. And every day for the past eight years, he has relived the horror of what happened. The gleaming lake. The pale moonlight. The piercing screams. The night his wife was taken. The last night he saw her alive.

Everyone tells him it's time to move on, to forget the past once and for all. But for David Beck, there can be no closure. A message has appeared on his computer, a phrase only he and his dead wife know. Suddenly Beck is taunted with the impossible - that somewhere, somehow, his wife is alive...and he's been warned to tell no one.

David Beck has rebuilt his life since his wife's murder eight years ago, finishing medical school and establishing himself as a pediatrician, but he's never forgotten the woman he fell in love with in second grade. And when a mysterious e-mail arrives on the anniversary of their first kiss, with a message and an image that leads him to wonder whether Elizabeth might still be alive, Beck will stop at nothing to find the truth that's eluded him for so many years. A powerful billionaire is equally determined to make sure his role in her disappearance never comes to light, even if it means destroying an innocent man.

In David Beck, Harlan Coben, the author of the popular series starring sports agent Myron Bolitar (Darkest Fear et al.) has created a protagonist who shares many of Bolitar's best qualities--he's a decent, generous, gentle guy whose loyalty to those he loves is unquestionable. So when he discovers that people he was close to may be responsible not only for Elizabeth's murder but also the "accidental" death of his father, Beck's sense of betrayal is as understandable to the reader as his uncharacteristically violent reaction. Coben is a skillful storyteller with a gift for creating likable characters caught up in circumstances that illuminate their complex emotional lives and deep humanity. This should be the thriller that breaks this talented writer out of the mystery genre and earns him the recognition he deserves. --Jane Adams --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
