In the course of eight consecutive #1 New York Times bestsellers, millions of readers have discovered Harlan Coben's 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.

Not my favorite Coben novel

Every other book I’ve read by Harlan Coben I was totally in love with, so this one felt like a letdown. It wasn’t my favorite.

It’s hard to give a Harlan Coben novel less than five stars.I give this one only four because it’s not quite as compelling as most of his others. Coben has a formula, and fans know from page one that there will be information disclosed toward the end of the plot that virtuously no one will have expected. I suspect that he must start by constructing the end and wrapping it in information that misdirects the reader. Then he creates compelling characters with whom everyday people can relate and tortures them mentally and emotionally. Even though I give this book four stars, it’s only because it’s competing with other Harlan Coben novels, whose scale elevates above the best authors in the business.

Harlan Coben is my favorite author. I love his books! This book was exceptionally good. I couldn’t put it down. My vision was blurry because I wouldn’t stop reading until I finished the book. Sometimes you can read part way through a book and predict the outcome. Not this time. There were plenty of twists to keep you guessing. I was surprised by the ending. Was definitely not a “let down” ending. The character, Maya was very relate able and like able. Definitely one of Harlan Cobens best books.
