Fast-paced and edgy, Norah McClintock's Tell is a mystery that begins with a dead body and ends with a psychological twist. Phil, David's stepfather, is shot and killed one night after taking $300 out of an ATM. David, the novel's narrator, is not surprised by the news, which makes him suspicious both to the police and the reader. David becomes the prime suspect. Where was David that night, and what does he know about Phil? David has figured out the truth about his stepfather, and the day his kid brother died. What will it take for him to tell? And how did he know? Slowly, over the course of the story, the truth about what happened that night is drawn out of him. As David recounts his story to Detective Antonelli, his words begin to make connections to 'telling' and his memories of his stepfather.
