An Engrossing Thriller by David Rosenfelt!

by jjares on Dec 24, 2012

If you have never read a novel by David Rosenfelt, you are missing a real treat. He?s best known for his series of Andy Carpenter stories, starring a golden retriever, Tara. Today, however, I?d like to review ?DON?T TELL A SOUL,? one of Rosenfelt?s stand-alone novels. It is billed as a thriller. This book certainly matches its billing! Although a golden retriever is one of the characters, it doesn?t have a starring role, as in the Andy Carpenter stories. I think Rosenfelt is genetically unable to write a book without a golden retriever! And it isn?t a bad thing! In the opening pages, Tim Wallace?s wife Maggie dies in an explosion on Tim?s boat. Detective Jonathan Novak (a character in the Andy novels), is lead investigator and quickly determines that Tim is as guilty as sin. Even Tim?s request for a lie detector test ? and passing it ? does little to change Novak?s mind. Several months after Maggie?s death, Tim?s friends convince him to go to the New Year?s Eve party at their favorite bar. A stranger comes up to Tim and tells him about a murder the stranger has committed. Tim reports the conversation to the police (Novak) and his life starts to unravel. Before long, there is a warrant out for Tim?s arrest ? for the murder of multiple women. He should have stayed in bed! All of Rosenfelt?s books are full of humor and clever dialogue. The stand alone novels I?ve read (all in print), have the added feature of a mystery that you-can?t-put-down. David Rosenfelt is one of my favorite writers; I?m at the bookstore on the date a new one is released. Give yourself a treat and read one soon! By the way, it is best to read the Andy Carpenter books in order; each story builds on the previous one.


good storyline

by CharlieofKansas on Aug 14, 2008

I was frankly a bit disappointed in this latest from David Rosenfelt. I have read all of his previous books and loved them all. I knew this one was not another Andy Carpenter mystery but hoped that perhaps it would be another winning character. This story was very suspenseful, kept my interest, and was a "real page turner". The plot was a good one and I was not disappointed in the outcome but I found the characters not all that likeable. I didn't dislike Tim, Eden, or Kiley. I just didn't like them. They just lacked likeable personalities. Still, I would recommend it to others because it is a good suspenseful mystery.

A good book! I was a little disappointed that his sense of humor didn't come through as with the other six.
