Fool Me Once by Harlan Coben
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Maya is trying to adjust to being home from the war when her husband, Joe, is killed. In order to protect her two-year-old daughter, she agrees to have a nanny cam put in her living room. What she doesn’t expect to see on the video is her dead husband playing with her daughter. She confronts the nanny about the video, and she is suddenly swept into a conspiracy that seems to have no end. Can Maya believe what she sees with her own eyes? Is there anyone in her life she can trust to help her find answers?
Fool Me Once is a stand-alone thriller that will not disappoint those who have read other books by the author. Coben’s plot twists span many years and across several characters so that the reader may find themselves slowing down just to digest the newest nugget of information. As the book approaches the last few chapters the anticipation doesn’t relent and the reader’s chance to put the book down and complete their own life duties diminishes. Readers might want to make sure they don’t continue the last portion of the book until they know they have the time to finish it.
