Summary

The new emotional thriller from the Sunday Times best-selling author of The Ice Cream Girls, My Best Friend's Girl and The Brighton Mermaid. Dorothy Koomson, 'Queen of the big reveal', is back with a gripping audiobook full of twists and turns.

Pieta has a secret.

Ten years ago, Pieta was kidnapped by a man calling himself The Blindfolder who said he wouldn't kill her if she kept her eyes closed for 48 hours. She never told anyone what happened to her, vowing to move on with her life. But when The Blindfolder starts hunting down his past victims, Pieta realises she may finally be forced to tell her deepest secret to stay alive....

Jody has a secret.

Fifteen years ago, policewoman Jody made a terrible mistake that resulted in a serial killer known as The Blindfolder escaping justice. When Jody discovers journalist Pieta survived an attack by him, she realises she may finally have found a way to catch him. But that would mean endangering at least two innocent people....

They kept quiet to protect themselves.

Will telling all save or sacrifice each other?

ANOTHER DYNAMITE KOOMSON THRILLER

I adored "The Friend" and "The Brighton Mermaid" and this book was every bit as good if not better. So well written with a tightly crafted plot with so many twists and turns and wonderful character development too. The book had me gripped and I carried it around while I worked about the house as I just could not put it down. I did not guess the whodunit and there were plenty of red herrings and shock reveals that just kept it all ripping along at a rate of knots with so much suspense and intrigue.
The narration was great and although there were dark crimes there was no gratuitous gore or delving into disturbing lingering details which is a hard line to walk but so skilfully done here by Dorothy Koomson.
So in short, a wonderful murder mystery thriller, many many twist turns, thrills and chills, complex believable characters and all set in beautiful Brighton so it is also like having a lovely seaside holiday too.
What a real delight - cannot wait for the next one.
6 STARS for a top quality listen.

OHMIDAYS!

Useful tip: take a huge breath in before you start Tell Me Your Secret as it will be the last breathing you do for a while. This is such a tautly written book, with more twists and turns than a Curly-Wurly on speed. Every time you think you've got a handle on who's doing what and why, Ms Koomson takes an entirely new direction. Nothing happens in the way you might imagine, but what's so brilliant about the story is the new direction seems entirely right and fitting. The multi-performance narration is superb and enhances an already jaw-dropping, OMG, I-can't-believe-it story. This is my first Dorothy Koomson but it certainly won't be my last. And don't even get me started on the ending, no spoilers here, but that wasn't what I expected to happen either. It's the kind of book that if, whilst listening, I'd met myself in the kitchen, I'd have thought that was quite reasonable, said "Hello" and moved on. I'm still amazed that my head didn't turn a full 360 degrees. Or maybe it did? Who knows what's real and what's not any more? Ohmidays, what a book!

Boring and predictable

Reads like a slow episode of criminal minds (tv-show). Got bored and just googled what the ending was so I could move on.

Gripped from the start

Fantastic story telling as always by Dorothy Koomson. Couldn't put it down. Loved the finale and the fact that enough has been left open for a sequel, I really hope that is the intention.

Unexpected but well worth the listen.

I have been a Dorothy Koomson fan for many many years. She never disappoints, her characters are always nuanced and human and they always feel so real. This book was just as good as all her previous books. I love that I am always taken on a journey and can never guess how the story is going to end, that's always the mark of a great story to me. 10 out 10 would definitely recommend.
