Tim Wallace's wife died in a boating accident several months ago. Tim was the only eye witness, and one New Jersey cop is sure he killed her. He didn't, but even if the police eventually clear his name, he'll never get over this terrible tragedy.
On New Year's Eve, his two best friends and business partners finally convince him to go out for the first time since Maggie's death, and at their neighborhood pub just a few minutes before midnight, things in Tim Wallace's life go from bad to worse. "Can you keep a secret? A really big one?" a drunken stranger asks him. Before Tim can say anything or turn away, the man confesses to a months-old murder, even offering as proof the location of the woman's body. "Now it's your problem," he says and walks away.
When the man turns out to have been telling the truth, Tim's life and work are put under the microscope again by the cops, and this time they're not giving up. But neither is Tim, even when things keep getting worse for him, and eventually he realizes he's the only person who can figure out what's really going on---even if it kills him.
David Rosenfelt, popular author of six Andy Carpenter mysteries, including the recent hit "Play Dead," delivers his first standalone with "Don't Tell a Soul," combining the suspense and great characters of his mystery series with an unputdownable, thrilling read.

Entertaining, fast paced and comes together in the end.

I found this to be an entertaining crime thriller. I have enjoyed Rosenfelt's series with Andy Carpenter (and Tara!) so I wanted to see how his stand alone novels compare -- I wasn't disappointed at all. I like the fact that there is plenty of suspense without a lot of gore!

It was a very good book - action, etc. First of his books that I've read and would most likely read another by him.

A major disappointment, as it's not a bad story. As mentioned, when you think about it, there are a lot of holes in the plot, with far too many connected insiders. The denouement is really weak and not too plausible either.
Am sure we have enjoyed a few of the Andy Carpenter titles some time ago.

Kept me awake until 4:30am since I just couldn't put it down. Highly entertaining.

This book is very entertaining and fast-paced. If you don't think much about the plot, it's okay, but when you start taking a closer look you can easily find many instances where events don't make sense
