Al Roker's best crime books

Today show weatherman Al Roker's debut novel is The Morning Show Murders, a mystery co-authored by Dick Lochte.

For The Week magazine, he named six of his favorite works of crime fiction. One novel on the list:
Tell No One by Harlan Coben (Dell, $10).

The first chapter of this book grabs you and doesn’t let you go. When a man finds a webcam video that seems to show that his murdered wife is not in fact dead, the reader can’t help but be freaked out. Coben is a master of grabbing the social zeitgeist and ramping it up to a new level of paranoia.
Read about the other five novels on the list.
