January 2011 Guest Editor Lisa Gardner on Harlan Coben...

His breakout thriller Tell No One remains one of my favourite novels, and I consider Harlan the master of the so-called “domestic thriller”—books about ordinary people caught up in extraordinary circumstances. Harlan’s characters feel like our best friends and next door neighbours: You recognize them instantly. Then, the unthinkable happens, and now this husband/mother/child, must dig deep to save his family. I find the novels very emotionally satisfying, the perfect way to unwind at the end of a long day.

Shortlisted for the Specsavers ITV3 Crime Thriller Bestseller Dagger 2009.

The Lovereading view...

Don't start this book if you only have half an hour to spare as once you start you will not want to put it down. A chilling mysterious plot and fast paced thriller, this is Harlan Coben at his best.

If you like Harlan Coben you might also like to read books by Linwood Barclay, Kathy Reichs and C. J. Box.

Synopsis

Tell No One by Harlan Coben

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...

Reviews

Coben's style is as relaxed as ever, but he still manages to make this a story which is hard to put down * SUNDAY TELEGRAPH * This book will keep you up until 2am * TIMES PLAY * Intelligent and gripping this is a real white-knuckle read of a thriller * DAILY MAIL * A thriller that recalls Vertigo. If the resolution of the mystery is more straightforward than Hitchcock's, it gains resonance because it keeps coming back to family issues * TELEGRAPH * A pulsing, pacy, devour-at-one-sitting thriller ... Coben grabs you with the opening paragraph and never lets you go. A class act * OBSERVER * Highly suspenseful thriller, high on excitement * LITERARY REVIEW *
