“What starts out as a conversation in a bar with a total stranger becomes a tension-filled game being played by someone out to get Tim Wallace, an innocent victim who becomes a prime murder suspect. This exciting story has a clever plot and it races along as Tim finds himself in deeper and deeper trouble.”

Tim Wallace's wife was killed in a boating accident several months ago--and one New Jersey cop is sure he did it. He didn't. But even if the police eventually clear his name, he'll never get over this terrible tragedy

It's New Year's Eve. Tim's buddies convince him to go out for the first time since his wife's death. They're at a local pub when, just before midnight, a drunken stranger approaches Tim--and asks him a compelling question.

Soon 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 to Tim before walking away. When the man turns out to have been telling the truth, Tim's life goes from bad to worse as he is put under the microscope again by the cops--and this time they're not giving up. But neither is Tim: He is the only one who can figure out what's really going on--and who murdered his wife

"Don't Tell a Soul" is an electrifying stand-alone thriller from David Rosenfelt, bestselling author of the Andy Carpenter novels.
