Book Review: Fool Me Once by Harlan Coben

Fool Me Once by Harlan Coben

Fool Me Once, the latest by author Harlan Coben, is an interesting murder mystery featuring a female protagonist, with lots of twists in its multiple plot lines.

The story centers around former special ops pilot Maya, who is now home from the war and taking care of her two-year-old daughter by herself. A gift nanny cam from a friend captures an image of her husband Joe playing with their daughter.

The only problem is Joe was brutally murdered two weeks earlier.

Knowing that can’t possibly be true, she sets out to find out what it is she really saw, but it seems as though everybody she knows is working against her. She also has to deal with the effects of PTSD, which makes her triple doubt everything she sees and learns.

To find the answers, 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. Along the way, she is drugged, shot at, and even worse.

I found Maya to be a well-developed lead character, and I enjoyed that a lot of the story was unpredictable, especially the ending.

Fool Me Once is a good read – I couldn’t put it down once I started it.
