Fool Me Once by Harlan Coben (Book Review)
About the book
#1 New York Times bestseller Harlan Coben delivers his next impossible-to-put-down thriller.
In the course of eight consecutive #1 New York Times bestsellers, millions of readers have discovered Harlan Coben's page-turning thrillers, filled with his trademark edge-of-your-seat suspense and gut-wrenching emotion. In Fool Me Once, Coben once again outdoes himself.
Former special ops pilot Maya, home from the war, sees an unthinkable image captured by her nanny cam while she is at work: her two-year-old daughter playing with Maya's husband, Joe—who had been brutally murdered two weeks earlier. The provocative question at the heart of the mystery: Can you believe everything you see with your own eyes, even when you desperately want to? To find the answer, Maya must finally come to terms with deep secrets and deceit in her own past before she can face the unbelievable truth about her husband—and herself.
Harlan Coben is one of a handful of authors that leave me waiting in deep anticipation while they are writing. I will always read whatever he writes as soon as it becomes available to me to be read! I am never disappointed! Fool Me Once was typical Coben fare, a murder that needs to be solved. I liked that this particular novel utilized subjects that are current including the main character' Maya's battle with post traumatic stress disorder. Many of our soldiers come back from war zones dealing with similar problems. Harlan Coben is great at keeping you interested in the progression of the stories he writes, this is one of those "just one more chapter" books. I also find Coben to be the master of the curveball, that is there is always something that takes me by surprise in the climax of his novel and that was definitely the case here! I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys suspense novels full of twists and turns.
