Book Review// Tell No One by Harlan Coben

My Twinny Sarah did a post on the TV show The Five a while ago and told me I should watch it. As soon as I started it I was hooked. I binge watched it on Now TV in about 2 days and loved it. It kept me engaged until the end and I was constantly trying to guess who had done it. I was wrong. I then made my family watch it and it was a huge hit. I then realised I had seen Harlan Coben's name before on my mums bookcase. I nicked the book and decided to give it a whirl.

Tell No One by Harlan Coben review

Tell No One

"Eight years ago David Beck was knocked unconscious and left for dead, and his wife Elizabeth was kidnapped and murdered.

Dr Beck re-lived the horror of what happened that day every day of his life. Then one afternoon, he receives an anonymous email telling him to log on to a certain website. The screen opens on to a web cam - and it is Elizabeth's image he sees.

As Beck tries to find out if Elizabeth is truly alive, and what really happened the night she disappeared, the FBI are trying to pin Elizabeth's murder on him. And everyone he turns to seems to end up dead..."

First off I love Harlans style of writing. His descriptions are soo good and I actually laughed out loud at some of them. I also loved the way he described his Grandfathers Alzheimer's.

This book is written in the first person from Beck's point of view which I'm not normally a fan of but this just worked and he's such a likeable character. His and Elizabeth's relationship was a tad vom inducing but he admits it which made me like him even more. I also love Beck's best friend Shauna. She's just so fiery and hilarious.

I was gripped from the very first chapter and it never slows down. I was engrossed until the very last page and I read it in about 8 hours. I could not put it down. My mum had to confiscate it so I would go to sleep. It was a tad stressful trying to work out how everything links together. Is Elizabeth alive? Will Beck be found guilty of murder? How the hell is he going to get out of this?

If you love to be kept guessing then I would definitely recommend this book?

Have you read any of Harlan Cobens books? 
Now I have to try and decide which ones to get next
