*Starred Review* Tim Wallace, the thirtysomething co-owner of a small construction company, is targeted for destruction by an unknown enemy who will go to any length to succeed—and for most of this fast-paced thriller, the reasons remain unclear. Suffice to say that they involve the nexus of politics, New Jersey style; a presidential nomination; vast sums of money; and the global war on terror. In addition to shadowy evildoers and expendable dupes, Tim is also the target of Novack, a bulldoglike New Jersey State Police detective whose every cop “instinct” tells him that Tim murdered his new wife. Don’t Tell a Soul is high-voltage entertainment from an author who plots and writes with the verve and wit of Elmore Leonard. Rosenfelt, author of the Andy Carpenter series (Play Dead, 2007), can sketch an engaging character in a couple of tight paragraphs. Novack, whose divorce has done wonders for his relationship with his ex, is a prime example. The dialogue is authentic New Jersey: quirky, funny, and laced with irony. So is the narrative. When a van loaded with high explosives levels part of a small town, even Homeland Security knows “there is no Afghanistan exit on the New Jersey Turnpike.” Plot twists and red herrings abound, and Rosenfelt ratchets up tension with the precision of a skilled auto mechanic wielding a torque wrench. --Thomas Gaughan --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
