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!

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.

A gripping read with a good twist.

Dorothy Koomson happens to be my go to Author I have always enjoyed reading her books although I wasn't too sure about this book at first. The start of the book had my attention but at times the middle of the it felt a bit long winded and hard to follow because of the author flitting back in time then jumping to the present.
However after a while this became more familiar and I started to kind of enjoy retracing the past to see how the future of the character have been formed because of past experiences.
I feel as many reviewers have mentioned that this story leaves the door open for a sequel.

I normally am very good at guessing who done it but this did surprise me although the reasoning for these horrendous acts was a bit weak in my view and didn't seem realistic.
This was an Audible book and it really did pull me into building a liking or disliking to a character very quickly. I will try another Audible book especially while we are in lock down.

It will be interesting to see if a sequel comes out and if so I will definitely give it a read. I did enjoy this book and was listening to it every time I had some spare time just to find out who did it.
I am happy to say Dorothy Koomson is still one of my favourite Author.

Excellently and Breathtakingly Written

So very thrilling - as always from Dorothy Koomson. Could you keep your eyes shut at all times if it meant you kept your life? Despite the pain and suffering you endured? I’m not sure I could?
This book made me really question what I could endure and whether I could live with a constant reminder of what happened to me. As always Koomson surprises you with the depth of her characters and really makes you question your own personality traits and levels of strength. Loved this book and will definitely be recommending to friends and family hell even strangers.

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.
