Detective Ellie Hatcher steps into the home of a suicide victim, and is convinced that that’s exactly what she’s seeing: a suicide. The mother of the victim has other ideas. Against her better judgment, Hatcher and her partner start to investigate. Hatcher was wrong; the death of Julia Whitmire wasn’t a suicide at all. Julia was involved in a strange case of cyberbullying.
I loved If You Were Here by Alafair Burke, so I was excited to read Never Tell. I didn’t love this one. I almost gave up on it, but it had just enough interesting details to make me want to keep reading. I listened to the audiobook, and I think it may have been the reader that I didn’t like. I also kept comparing Ellie Hatcher to Eve Dallas, J.D. Robb’s famous detective. Ellie wasn’t gutsy enough for me.
Try If You Were Here by Alafair Burke. You won’t be disappointed.
