Never Tell by Alafair Burke

GENRE: Suspense | PAGES: 368

My rating: ★★★

Never Tell is edgy and well paced. Not the best of the thriller/mystery books I’ve read so far this year but certainly a good read that kept me hooked. An eighth of the way through I was convinced that I’d cracked the case and yet I was wrong. That gave the ending a refreshing twist.

  Never Tell

 

Detective Ellie Hatcher will be forced to uncover the truth behind the apparent suicide of a teenaged girl with intriguing connections to both New York’s wealthiest—and its most dispossessed. This addictive thriller from acclaimed suspense writer Alafair Burke draws its details from the author’s own experiences as a criminal law professor and deputy district attorney, creating an exhilarating, true-to-life tale of crime and its consequences that is perfect for fans of Laura Lippman, Harlan Coben, and Burke’s breakout standalone thriller Long Gone.
