Why read it?

2 authors picked Tell No One as one of their favorite books. Why do they recommend it?

I love a good page-turner. I love to write them and I love to read them. I strive to write novels that the reader will binge. Novels as addictive as a drug. I want each chapter I write to be like another hit—a re-up that floods the reader’s brain with dopamine. Tell No One by Harlan Coben is a novel that I binged. It keeps you guessing until the end. And while some of the payoffs may seem a little over-the-top, I am able to overlook it because this novel (like much of Coben’s work) is just so damn addictive!

From Alex's list on crime with a cinematic sensibility.

Tell No One is another thriller with non-stop action. We do learn a little about the main character in the beginning, but by Chapter 2 he sees the mysterious message and then the action builds from there. This book, and much of Harlan’s writing, taught me that action can be a constant while there’s still a mystery weaved in that the character (and the reader) have to solve. This book was in mind when I was writing my fifth thriller.
