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.
Maya Stern, a former Army Captain is at the cemetery when we meet her, burying her husband Joe, who was murdered right in front of her. Maya is also feeling like because of her military background, she could have done more to save her husband, and that affects her deeply to the point as she tries to figure out why this happened, she discovers things about her husband’s family that cause her pause.
Shane, one of her platoon mates, is keeping an eye on Maya because that is what “brothers” do for each other. She wants to tell him she is being followed, for one thing, but not understanding the “why” of what is going on in her life right now, she also wants to protect him as he does for her.
Corey Rudzinski, a reformed hacker, and founder of CoreyTheWhistle a place where whistle-blowers can post information confidentially has been following her but why.
This story has many layers, twists and turns that you expect with a Harlan Coben novel, and this one doesn’t disappoint. The story is tight, and I would read any work by this author because you know it is going to be a page turner.
I received an uncorrected copy for review.
When this is released, you will want to read this book. Buy it!
